We arrived late at night in San José, lot of hostels were fully booked. When we walked in at this hostel (11 pm) the owner was extremely kind. He told us he was going to make sure that we had a place to stay for the night. There were no beds left in the dorms so he offered us a... More

For a hostel I think it just about ticks all the boxes for any backpacker hoping to find some rest whilst passing through San Jose, however parts of the building do need a good clean and perhaps one or two brighter light bulbs to light some of the pretty dim rooms.

We only had the pleasure of staying one night here but wish we had been able to stay longer. The owners were very nice and the house itself is a beautiful piece of Costa Rican history. Perhaps because it used to be a home, it has a very homey feel. It was great being able to chill in the lounge... More

Frida (the dog of one owner) is awesome! The owners are very friendly! They help us with some problems and to plan our trip. They also shared pizza and wraps with us! :) The hostel looks very good and is very spacious. The location is also very nice. The supermarket, atm and center are very close!

My 3 sisters and I spent a comfortable night at Casa del Parque. The house is quite nice, the staff friendly and helpful, and the facilities clean and comfortable. I appreciated that Jesus gave us a walk-through and explained procedures (for the kitchen, TV, shared books, etc.), because that's a helpful way to avoid miscommunication later. He also gave us...

I stayed at this hostel three times during a three month trip to Costa Rica, and having stayed at a few other places in San Jose, I really think this is the best hostel in town. The building is truly beautiful, marble floors, beautiful staircase, chandelier - not your usual hostel style. It's like walking into a posh hotel! It's... More

The hostel is spacious and well designed, with numerous communal spaces and comfortable beds. The owner is a great guy who was very happy to give us all the information we required about the buses, city, and country. The kitchen was well stocked and clean.

Just stayed one night but couldn't have been happier - lovely building, helpful staff, great location. In fact we plan to stay again on our way back through Costa Rica. It's a little oasis in the centre of San Jose. Thanks so much for your kind hospitality!
