        I was a solo female traveller, my first time in Latin America. I found this hostel to be very welcoming and chilled out. Defiantly a home from home. There are enough toilets and showers, which are reasonably clean, a fridge and cooking facilities available for...More

        Nice Hostel in a very good location in central San Jose. Very helpful owner and knowledgeable about trip planning in Costa Rica. Spacey, but noisy rooms. Well refurbished place. Unfortunately facilities were lacking some daily maintenance, e.g. bathrooms cleaning, emptying trash bins. Pre-arrival questions via...More

        The hostel is located close to the downtown, so it's easy to walk anywhere. The owner, David was super cool and helpful. I visit San Jose quite often, and will definitely stay in this hostel next time too.

        Clean, accomodating, great location for buses out of SJO. It was pretty quiet and seemed to be mostly travellers as opposed to partyers. The people at the front desk were great. Nice bed. Big sitting area in kitchen is really nice and sort of outdoors.

        We are scheduled to arrive at 1:00 am. Will there be a taxi available at the airport at that time and how much will it cost to get to the hostel?

        I think there should be taxis, since the airport has it's own airport-taxis (they are orange instead of red). It costs around 28$
