The hostel title is misleading, many hotels are not this good. The rooms are small and clean, there's a lovely courtyard outside, and staff are friendly. The location is good, right by the Central Park and a 20 minute walk to downtown. And the showers have hot water, real hot water, something many other hostels in Costa Rica don't manage.

Located just off the sabana park which has the rainbow eucalyptus trees. Felt safe. Has a nice common area and patio. The staff are really helpful, but their phones and wifi are awful. Stayed in the dorm which rattles a lot, not too much of a problem. Beds are mediocre. Clean. No lockers or safe, why???

I loved Mi Casa Hostel. They have dorm rooms, but their private rooms are decently priced with good hot water. The common areas are perfect for hanging out and relaxing with other travelers. Good staff.

The overall feeling Mi Casa left us with is good. My wife even saw a turtle walking in the garden! Pros are: No mosquitoes, clean beds, staff, was safe and all. Cons: the atmosphere was average. Great place to stay overnight when going other places in Costa Rica or if you are looking for a quiet haven.

A beautiful stay in this hostel! We spent a couple of day. It's a good site if you want to visit the capital or if you go for businness. Just 20min walking from the city centre. It's clean, nice and in a quite and secure area. The breakfast is included.

The house is beautiful with a nice garden, open kitchen and the hostel is conveniently located next to the Sabana Park which is a great plus in the otherwise noisy city. We had no reservation so just walked in and asked for a double room with shared bathroom; this room was a 6 ned dorm with bunbeds that we could... More

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
