Love Hostel was very simple and basic. Beautiful upper deck. Location is pretty far out from San Jose. The guy at reception was very accommodating (at a small cost) to take us into San Jose, and helped us find the Tica Bus station. It's a very quiet hostel.

Managed by a young, friendly costarican owners, it's a great option. The hostel is in Sto Domingo, far from noise of downtown San Josè, in this clean, safe, neighborhood. They provide affordable tours and If you call in advance, they pick you up at airport, cheaper from local taxis.

Definitly a good value! I was just arriving when they offered me to join a little trip to the beach. It was very nice. Beautiful beach, warm water. If you're looking for a cheap and friendly place to stay. That's one of them!

Hostel is located in a quite and safe place in the outskirts of San Jose. People are very friendly and good human beings.Wifi, TV, computers, Laundry facility, super market nearby, everything available. If you wanna go for site seeing or adventure tour, they arrange them at nominal prices. Overall, cool and nice and safe place to stay in Costa Rica.

The only thing i wanna say is: if something in your hostel didn't suits me is better if you appreciate my comment and try to learn from your mistake because you have all the quality to be a very good hostel, but if something didn't go as I expected you couldn't say to me "it was your fault".

Nice enough place, located in a quiter area. The room was very small but surprisingly had a TV in it (which we didn't use). Owner is very nice, though he was an hour late picking us up from the airport.

This place offers a refreshing level of comfort on a budget. It is close to San Jose but in a peaceful area (pretty, unpolluted, quiet) - the buses to downtown are cheap, frequent and leave from round the corner. A lovely spot, really recommend it.
