Don't be fooled by the initial impression, Kaps Place is wonderful. I didn't mind the small room and I slept great! Being in San Jose for only about 15 hours, I didn't need anything fancy and I was delighted with the price. The staff is wonderful and I was immediately guided to a place to get food as I had...

They had given away our room when we arrived, but David on the reception scrounged around and found us two rooms with a shared bathroom rather than the triple we had reserved. Both rooms were bright and clean, and one even had a table and chair, so that I could use my laptop in comfort. The next morning, they served... More

Good stay. Had one issue with the people that work there's dog. It was barking and barking. So it is a must that you do not stay in "Zen House 6".

Amazing location, within walking distance of several local markets, museums, etc. nice beds, helpful staff, FANTASTIC breakfast. They have both "hostel style" rooms with 4 bunks and shared bathroom with other rooms, as well as some private rooms. Open air breakfast, cute decor, hammocks, games to play... Would definitely stay again.

While this isn't a 5 star facility, it is everything I was looking for. Clean, friendly, helpful and a great value. It was close to all the places I wanted to go and I could walk safely. I will definitely return next time I am in San Jose.

Kaps Place is all we needed for our first and last nights in Costa Rica. Very well situated in San Jose, not just in the center but walking distance from what you want to see in that town when you have time to spend there (obviously not the purpose of a trip in Costa Rica, but worth the visit).
