We only stayed here one night in transit between two places. The rooms were fantastic with comfortable beds and a hot shower! However, I gave this hostel three out of five because I believe the man at the front desk tried to rip us off. I had already paid on Paypal for the room, but had forgotten I had done... More

We stayed at this hostel for one night and it was alright. The rooms are clean and quiet, the breakfast was OK (two pancakes with coffee) but most importantly the location is excellent. It's about a 10 minute walk from the bus stop which is great if you're taking the bus from the airport (about 1USD per person) instead of... More

Great location away from the main road, but very close to downtown. Sabana park 3 blocks away. Very quiet. Nothing super luxury, but peaceful and quiet. Middle courtyard is great and lets you forget that you're in the middle of San Jose. Community fridge and kitchen. Rooms are small but the main area is nice and easier to hang out... More

Overall for what I needed the days I was in San Jose it was OK. If you are searching for nice atmosphere and a little more luxury I would recommend it, for 1 or 2 days is OK Good: - close to the sabana park - large common areas - kitchen to use - helped me out with all questions... More

Pros: Low price, hot water, friendly staff, hanging out in the inner courtyard/garden, free wifi, convenient location (to Sabana Park, downtown, bus lines) Cons: Poor mattresses/sheets/pillows, community kitchen on the scuzzy side, large hostel so communal fridge is risky (expect your stuff may be jacked) All in all, you get what you pay for and the price is really great...

Mi Casa Hostel is terrific; convenient to downtown, in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to several restaurants, delightful staff who are extremely helpful, very clean rooms, coffee and pancake breakfast included (save a bit for the 4 resident small turtles that will greet you at the breakfast table), internet access. About a buck or two for a bus to/from the... More

Mi Casa hostel is your average hotel with above average customer service. The rooms are basic and kept clean. The hostel offers a community kitchen and lounge area which are also always clean and taken care of. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, often recognizing their patrons by name and going out of their way to accommodate them. This... More

This place is a hidden gem. It's in a good location right next to the Sabana. The rooms and pancake breakfast are basic, but what makes this place worth the stay are the warm and friendly people that work there. My wife and I stayed here numerous times during our 2 years in Costa Rica and I cannot recommend this... More

Ran into this Hostel my accident, but was a pleasant accident. They had a huge room for the two of us with private bathroom and hot water! was so good to take a hot shower, because apparently in C.R it is hard to get hot water. They gave us parking behind the gate and we felt secure. The breakfast was... More
