I stayed here at the end of my trip... The bed was incredibly comfortable and the breakfast was a plus! I loved being able to use the computers too! BUT... The noise from next door was AWFUL! I literally couldn't go to sleep until 3am. The windows didn't close so the noise was inevitable! Two guys arrived really late (while... More

Loved our stay at Casa Yoses. Super friendly staff, great dorm room including lockers, fun hangout area by the pool table, huge communal kitchen, funky bar next door and super close to Soda Yogui (24 hour cheap eats) and the Auto Market (gourmet supermarket). The total highlight though was the incredible free breakfast which was huuuuge - cereal, fruit, coffee,... More

When people tell you to stay away from San Jose, they clearly haven't been to Casa Yoses. A beautiful, clean, superbly well equipped hostel, with awesome staff and (by far) the best hostel breakfast I've ever had. Make it a night or two in San José, you won't regret it

I actually really liked this hostel and the staff seemed real nice. the only problem was that they have a long term guest staying there who broke into my locker and stole all my money. When I informed the hostel about this they defended him saying he was a good client and he had been there a long time, that... More

I stayed at Casa Yoses for one night while passing through San Jose and it was an enjoyable experience. The staff was helpful, and the dorms, bathrooms and common areas were clean and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was a really nice touch! All in all an enjoyable experience.

Student environment. We travelled with two couples, if you're unlucky and your room is on the bar side, you might have some trouble falling asleep due to loud music. On the other hand, it is convenient to drink a few beers just downstairs. Rooms were neat, bathroom was less clean. Wifi was accessible downstairs but didn't work in the rooms.... More

I needed a last-minute place to stay for a weekend in San Jose, and selected Casa Yoses based on the reviews and its proximity to San Pedro/nightlife. It was clean and easy to check in, I slept in a 10-person mixed dorm for $12/night. The only issue I had was that there aren't many showers there, and sometimes I had... More

I've stayed two nights there, and it was pleasant. People from other countries working there, but very nice and helpful. Very good breakfast and nice common place, TV and video games. The room was alright, lots of beds and impossible to close the windows. Due to people on the street there was a lot of noise. You'll probably be waking... More
