We chose this place out of the Lonely Planet book for a night stay before we left CR. Thought it would be fun and an interesting place to stay since we were gonna be in the city :( It sucked coming back to the city after spending 4 days in Manuel Antonio.
For $25 we could have gotten a box with a bed & shared bath, so I opted for $5 more for a private bath since it would be more airy...no fans! They put us in a room that was right under the stairs to the bar & night club. We could not sleep all night because everyone was up partying & music was blaring. My boyfriend id 30 & I am 27, so we're not old fuddy duddies, but after no sleep all night, at 7 am people were up already causing a raucus! We were annoyed and dissapointed.
To all the people that stay at Hostel Pangea....
WHY ARE YOU PARTYING IN SAN JOSE?!? There are so many beautiful & fun places in CR, GO SOMEWHERE!!!
The halls are painted with cool murals, but we didn't see any mechanical bull like Lonely Planet says & food at the retaurant sucks!!
They do have free interent wich we took advantage of & the price of drinks at the bar was resonable with many options.
Our first night in CR we were in San Jose as well and we stayed at Costa Rica backpackers (across the street they have large quiet rooms with balconies for $28). I would recommend you stay there! Matter of fact I would recommend you skip San Jose all together if you can, it's not worth your time...I would have rather spent another day on the beach!
