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!

The staff completely makes you feel like you're part of the family with their warm welcome and helpfulness. Roger and Jesus are such great guys and make you feel as if you've known... More

Casa del parque has been great to stay at and offers a wonderful base camp for exploring the city. The dorms are basic and lack privacy curtains but are generally comfortable and quiet. The free Wi-Fi, garden, TV room, and kitchen facilities more than make up for whatever luxury the dorms are missing. What makes this hostel really exceptional are... More

From the moment we walked in we were welcomed (something most hostels & staff seem too struggle with). The building/old Manor House is beautiful and strange all at the same time. It's a different layout too lost hostels I've stayed in but they pull it of very very well, the staff are amazing, they are a fountain of knowledge &... More
