At the age of 66, first hostel stay with my son last month. We used Bekuo to transition from East to West coasts and home to California. Would highly recommend. Safe, friendly, comfortable, and a great location for restaurants, etc. bonus is free breakfast (and the resident outdoor pet bunny Tranquillo). Like being in someone's very nice home. On any...

I was in CR for around 2 months and I made this place my home each time I passed through San Jose. I stayed there first on the recommendation of a friend and then returned each time I got a chance. The staff was great and friendly, the location was in what seemd a fairly quiet area of the city... More

Insanely good value that can't be beat in San Jose. Awesome breakfast included and not really any charges for extras. Bryan and his staff are all awesome people-super helpful and fun to be around. I've stayed in a lot of hostels throughout my 2 years in Costa Rica and never again will I look for another place San Jose. The... More

Hostel Bekuo is a great choice for those passing through San Jose or staying for longer to enjoy the city. It is located in Los Yoses, which is a safe and convenient location. It is close to the University and lots of bars and restaurants, and a 20 minute walk downtown. The owner and the hostel staff are super friendly... More

Hey There, Thank you so much for your words... Thank you for detailing some specifics that you liked about Bekuo. You inspired me to start using the juicer again. Today it was spinach, apple, carrot and ginger. We pride ourselves on a great staff who do their best to make sure that the hostel is clean at all times. Costumer... More

So glad we found this place to stay in San Jose. The dorm rooms were clean and comfortable with a large bathroom, and the communal spaces were really pleasant to hang around in. Brian and all the staff were really friendly and welcoming. On our first morning there Brian initiated a trip to a local organic market for breakfast and... More

Wow!!! That is an awesome Tripadvisor name... I had a blast hanging out with you guys, and yes, it was a shame that you had to leave. La Feria Verde (the organic market, in Barrio Aranjuez) is a perfect way to start a Saturday morning. Thank you for going with me. Although the game was one of the worst ever,... More

We booked the Hostel because it had so many good recommandations, but for me it was not really the right choice. The rooms were okay, though not very clean - and the "double bed" had more of a self-build construction. But our room was located right between the living room section and the kitchen and you could here the music,... More

Hello and good day, I am so sorry that you did not sleep well the night that you were at Hostel Bekuo. I know which room you are talking about, and yes, that room can get some crossing sounds sometimes, but our hostel is generally very chill, and not too noisy. We usually turn the music and TV off at... More

I always stay at Hostel Bekuo when I'm in San Jose and love my time there. Carey (sp?) makes perfect pancakes with fresh pineapple every morning which is a great way to start off the day.

Hey there, Thank you so much for the review. Caryn definitely has some pancake skills in the kitchen, and she's actually been baking a lot since we got our new oven. About 3 times a week she'll prepare some solid treats, and pass them out to whoever is around. We love when people play music at the hostel, so grab... More

Warm, welcoming environment. Great atmosphere. Around 20-30 minutes walk to museums and main bus stops. Staff were helpful and considerate. Clean rooms, kitchen, and washrooms. Breakfast consisted of pancakes and fruit. Great value!

Woot Woot!!! We love every review that positively reflects our staff (#1), the cleanliness, and the atmosphere of the hostel. We are constantly striving to please everyone.
