I came through San Jose to casa yoses first, then to several other places but by far, this place was the most fun filled hostel with great people, amenities, and location. It's a totally cool place to relax and/or party, lots of diversity and really nice staff, especially the front desk girls, who helped me find the best places to... More

Casa Yoses is the only hostel I know of in the San Jose area that has "long term" rooms. For $300 a month I stayed in one of their long term rooms above the bar/restaurant La Sospecha, which is right across the courtyard. Before I moved in there I had stayed in one of their dorms several times. However, I... More

This hostel was great that they provided an airport shuttle and free breakfast but it was pretty dirty. Two of the three bathrooms on one side of the hostel were out of order so 4 rooms had to share one bathroom. I never got to try the breakfast because I left early bother morning for a tour. It's pretty loud... More

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
