This hostel is pretty close to Mall San Pedro, stores and bus stops. Its a pretty secure area as well. The 'gallo pinto' as breakfast in the morning was pretty cool. The staff was very nice and helpful during my stay.

The beds are also very confortable and the hostel is in a very nice area wich makes it easier to go out at night! I had the time of my life there! Would definitely recommend... More

Located within walking distance to the Mall San Pedro, banks, markets, and bars, this little hostel is a good base for travelers to mingle and coordinate future travel throughout the country. There is wifi, a shared kitchen with a "make your own pancake" station for breakfast, complimentary. There is a restaurant and on the property as well, it was crowded... More

Staff is so nice! They even helped us with cooking once and when we had questions they always knew the answer. The breakfast included is really good and the cafe also. Nice vibe going on over there. Dorms and bathrooms are clean. Good place to stay in san jose!

The head maid there was super lazy and rude. She was on her phone most of the day and didn't clean the place very well. A lot of the problems travelers face with place comes from the cleanliness. Why can't they hire someone who cleans the place better? She also would complain about customers to the other staff, not realizing... More

We have been travelling around the whole country, and visited many hostels, cheap places. Casa Yostes Hostel is the worst ever. Cleaning doesn't exist here; rooms are plenty of dust and dirt on the floors, toilet full of cotton, paper, and many things everywhere. The best? BUGS in the bed, hairs in the bed linen. People doesn't respect the silence... More
