We stayed in the Basic Double Bed Private (with shared bathroom) for one night before our flight home. We thought it would sleep us two, however it was very large and had a queen bed with bunk beds adjacent to it (could sleep 4). The activities provided in the hostel were plentiful. They had a pool table, plenty of games,... More

My husband and I recently stayed here on our last night before returning to the states. What a great find! Super helpful staff and a real welcoming environment. We met a lot of nice people from all over the world- some there for just a few nights, others a few months.The area felt very safe. There were a lot of... More

We arrived in San Jose late evening and had read about this hostel in lonely planet so thought we would check it out. The price was fair for a dorm room in a capital with breakfast. The hostel is very clean with a large lounge area where you can play music, read a book or play pool. There are computers... More

We did not stay overnight here. However we arrived in San jose at 3 pm and our flight departed at 1 am. This hostel allowed us to store our backpacks here while we went out and explored. And they allowed us to hang out and watch a movie and use their wifi until we were ready to go to the... More

A perfect starting point (and ending point) for your CR vacation. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff and a really comfortable environment for groups or single travelers. Great atmosphere where you will never feel alone if you don't want to be. Brian (owner) is very hands-on in ensuring all of his guests are comfortable and well cared for. Whether you are... More

I stayed at Bekuo several times during my time in Costa Rica and it felt like a second home. The staff were super, super helpful and a blast to hang out with. We went out with a couple of the guys several times and they were awesome. The location is perfect - in a very safe neighborhood, close to supermarkets... More

I stayed at Bekuo twice already and really love the place! Location is very good, supermarkets and mall nearby and a short 15 minutes walk from downtown. Also a lot of bars around. The hostel feels more like a big flat, with different couches, tv, good wifi, pool table, little garden with a cute bunny.. The kitchen is a bit... More

Hostel Bekuo is one of the friendliest and chilled out hostels I have ever been to. Super clean and well equipped, and Brian and his team really go out of their way to make you feel part of the family. There is a pool table, and a lush garden to chill out in with the hostel rabbit! The hostel is... More
