Good place for a short stay. Nice clean rooms, small kitchen, tea/coffee toast for breakfast included. Very helpful staff. Small tv area and kitchen area for common space.

I will admit I haven't stayed at too many hostels but this place got the job done. It was clean, reasonable and fine for our one night stay in San Jose. Some rooms are better than others, I would suggest staying on the second floor in the back to avoid the bright lights from the street as well as the... More

I guess it wasn't terrible, but the beds and room sucked. the room had open windows to the "common area" it made it difficult to sleep. also, not window to the outside, no fan. it was hot and stuffy. The included Breakfast was a joke. toast with butter. No thanks.

Very nice and courteous staff. Old building, not necessarily well cared for. Cleanliness to be desired. Not much other than the staff to write home about...later found much better options for same price in San Jose.

Just stayed two nights (1 at the beginning and 1 at the end of our Costa Rica trip) at Kabata. The place is secure as in they always keep the door locked. The area of downtown San Jose is not the greatest nor the safest, but I enjoyed walking around and never felt threatened. The location of Kabata is pretty... More

Really enjoyed the stay here. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Anything that you could want to do in Costa Rica, they can help. The hostel is clean and the rooms are good compared to other hostels.
