At one time this hostel was nice and well taken care of. But at my last stay the place seemed to be run down and neglected. They have incorporated a bar within the hostel which is a draw for guests outside of the hostel. But for the price charged, the amenities were really bare.

I visited Costa Rica for a business trip and I found this little hostel just a few blocks away from our office in San Jose. I was in a hotel, also nearby, but I found the prices a bit high and I wanted to save some money and knew I would be happy enough in a hostel - as long... More

We picked here because it was in a safe neighbourhood, and hadn't too high expectations. But its half a dollar on the bus into town, close to a mall. Rooms were clean and staff helpful. We extended our stay. Biggest downside was that some rooms get a lot of noise from the communal areas - if you enjoy early nights... More

In a fairly busy part of Los Yoses/San Pedro, San Jose. It's a good place to stay, Not far from bus routes into the city, or takes about 20 minutes to walk to downtown San Jose. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around and about. The place itself is quite big and always busy. I stayed in mixed dorm... More

I stayed there for five nights. The hostel was great. It is close to the center of San José (just a 2 minutes bus ride.) Luis and Liam (manager and front desk) were very helpful. They helped me book a tour and even order a pizza. The people that stayed there was awesome. Many of them were experienced backpackers so... More

We stayed at Casa Yoses because Bekuo, the hostel down the street, was full. The guy at the front desk was great, the beds were comfortable, the food overpriced and the showers did have hot water, but, the toilets didn't flush... The entire time we were there. This is definitely an issue when there are 15 people sharing one bathroom.... More

Good location - within walking distance to many good restaurants. Also offers free wifi on the computers in the lobby. The kitchen is great - just a little dirty at times because people don't do their dishes (EWWWWW). The girl at the front desk was new and a little clueless. It was also annoying that there was a $5 deposit... More

As we were landing late into San Jose this seemed like a good place to stay as it seemed like a sociable place. I got an email after making a reservation for a shuttle from the airport for $30 but I figured that a taxi would cost the same price and it saved us waiting for a shuttle at 10pm.... More

I really liked Casa Yoses because it has a nice atmosphere and offers much (big kitchen, pancake breakfast, big bathrooms) for little money, However, I have to criticize their dealing with theft. When I stayed there, stuff was stolen from my bed (my expensive retainer and sleeping gear that I had left in my bed as a signal that someone... More

I have stayed at Casa Yoses a couple of times over the past two years, and each time that I arrived, the hostel had completely changed from the previous time. Overall, I would say that it has improved from the first time that I stayed, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. Each time that I have... More
