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

Reception was very helpful and nothing was a problem. Lots a communal areas to hang out and friendly guests. I had a room quick I was disappointed with expedient for the price $38.

Hostel Bekuo was my station in San José crossing through Costa Rica from Nicaragua to Panama. Everything went smooth, it is very clean and quiet and the kitchen is well equipped. A very nice feature is the pool table. There is also a guitar, but it might need some new strings. The staff is really very helpful and probably the... More

Hostel Bekuo is simply the perfect hostel. The staff/owner/volunteers are passionate travellers and just wonderful people that go out of their way to make your stay great. As a solo traveler, it is the best place I've been. The safety is tip-top, the hostel is super social, and you can walk downtown. Great communal areas and amazing pancakes for breakfast.... More

I got into Bekuo early December 2014 and spent a couple of nights there as a home base while travelling the rest of Costa Rica. The place could not come better equipped location wise - 15 mins walk or a quick bus to the main drag, 3 surrounding supermarkets for those on different budgets and far enough away that things...

Overall, my friends and I had a great time here - we came back twice. The staff were very helpful and made great recommendations for places to go, trip planning and the like. There's a fantastic supermarket just up the road with great variety of fresh and packaged food. It's also quite conveniently located to a large shopping centre (we... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here one night since we were going to Tamarindo from puerto veijo. It is a great hostel with lots of big spaces to hang out. They have an tv, a pooltable, videogames, you name it. We would have stayed longer if the weather had been better..

San José isn't the most interesting place on Earth, but the hostel made the stay very pleasant, the people are amazing, the kitchen is very decently equipped and the dorms are very comfy. The staff are super helpful when planning your trip, whether it is at giving useful info or calling you a cab to move around. Location is also... More
