I stayed at Kaps Place on two separate occasions in November of 2013. It is a quaint, clean hospitable hostel that meets almost all of a travelers needs on a budget - especially those looking for a quiet, tranquil setting. There is a kitchen available to make your own food and this helps budget minded travelers save money. The staff... More

Although we did not like the fluorescent lighting, the room was cheerful and clean. They served a great breakfast in a beautiful garden. Staff was very warm and helpful. We especially enjoyed playing ping-pong after breakfast at their ping-pong table.

Looking for an eco hotel in San Jose, I touched down and headed for Hotel Aranjuez - but it was full and the security guard sent me across the road to Kaps Place. I'm soooo glad he did :~) I've stopped through San Jose a few times during my month long journey in Costa Rica, and have always loved the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Kap's Place for one night in Dec 2013 after landing in Costa Rica.

This is the second time my husband and I stayed at Kaps Place. Kaps serves ok breakfasts, always the same fare, but fairly good. The staff is helpful but the place is very noisy at night, more suited for young college students travelers than adults. Folks playing pool, drinking beer, smoking, and carousing until late isn't our idea of comfortable... More

We were not really impressed by the hotel. The receptionist got very unfriendly when we wanted to make tea after 10 pm and the way she said it was very rude. The breakfast buffet was not very varied. Rooms also very basic and simple. But the location is nice and the outside area of the hotel too.
