This place was adorable. The rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly and it was in the heart of San Jose. Just minutes walk to any bars and restaurants. They had a small one car garage for $10 a night I believe it was. I recommend using the garage if you plan on staying for a few days and... More

Casa 69 was a nice and safe place to stay. Big clean room, breakfast is good. Location is perfect. 10 min walk to the centre and some good restaurants or pubs around the corner. We booked a lager room then we eventually got, it was a little mistake but it worked out just fine. No problems.

Stayed just 1 night in transit and thought it was great value. This isn't 5 star so don't expect that, it's great for the budget traveller. Staff were friendly (only a bit challenging at night with 1 guy not speaking much English, but he was lovely and friendly regardless), we love dogs so that wasn't a problem. The only recommendation... More

Stopped in to see the rooms for 2 adults and 1 child. They had a boy 3 very big dogs and about 4 more smaller one. This is not a good place for someone with kids or with allergies. They offer me two rooms not one. Not sure how they thought 6 year old could stay in a separate room... More

You entered our hotel to inquire about accommodations. Our policy is 2 people to a bed unless the child is 3 years or under. You needed a room with 2 beds. Ours were all rented so the staff offered you the only thing we could - 2 rooms. You walked away in anger and within hours submitted a negative review.... More

The rooms are well kept, and importantly STAY COOL throughout the day. Casa69 is right next to Central Avenue so any Sodas(cheap restaurants), restaurants, markets, or shops are within walking distance (along with the bus stop). Oskar who works the graveyard shift is ex-military, so you never have to worry at night. Additionally, He'll always help you find things to... More

We spent one night in this good hostel when we arrived from France in San Jose. It's a nice place to spend a short time when arriving or leaving Costa Rica. The breakfast is good and the coffee is selected each morning.

The location is close enough to the city centre you can basically walk everywhere, slightly off the beaten path and I didn't see much room for parking. Our host spoke little English and wasn't the friendliest, but our room was spectacular! We somehow managed to get the king room on the top of the B&B - the view was amazing... More

Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback. I am happy you enjoyed our little oasis. You are right as well about the rooftop patio. The view of the surrounding mountains is beautiful, and at night you see the lights of the city. I would however like to clarify one point. The owner, like yourself, is Canadian and speaks excellent... More
