I have stayed in many hostels in many places and this is one of the nicest I've stayed in. Clean, friendly and with decent facilities. I stayed in a private room when I first arrived, mainly on account of the fact that I needed a lot of rest. This room was fine. When I came back before returning home, I... More

While in San Jose' city there's little to see (well, apart from some very nice nightlife places... Thanks, Brian!), the hostel in itself is very nice, as the people there who own and work in it. Thanks for the great stay, and see you again on the 31st of August!

We stayed here for one night in a private double with shared bathroom. It was a nice clean friendly hostal with good communal areas. There's a couple of dinner places within walking distance. The rate includes pancakes for breakfast. There is a book exchange at the hostal. Staff are friendly and helpful and will order a cab for you. A... More

I have been in over 40 hostels in Central and South America. This is the best. Excellent spirit, helpful stuff, clean, nice community area, good wifi, great breakfast, cute little rabbit in the garden, friendly owner that shows you every cool corner in the city if you want. If you ever go to San José, stay here. I wanted to... More

I really enjoyed my 4 night stay in Hostel Bekuo. I stayed in the private room which was spacious and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. The people staying there at the time were great too. Pancakes for breakfast are yum. Overall, a great vibe, safe & clean.

This place has a great feel of home and family. Clean rooms (you can choose from dorms or private rooms), excellent value for the price, and delicious breakfast with pancakes, fruit, and coffee. The common rooms are clean and the staff does a great job to keep the noise levels down once it starts getting late. Most people I've met... More
