This is really the best place to stay here in San Ramon! It's very clean, economic and you will be welcomed by one of the loveliest family I ever met! You will have access to a kitchen and if needed you can do some laundry too. I'd wish there would be more hostels like this! Really highly recommendable!

The hostel was clean and my stay was great. But best of all, the family that owns the hostel are so kind. They helped me to get around and gave me tips on the bus schedules. Since I was traveling alone, this meant a lot to me! They were so helpful to me while I was in Costa Rica!

We enjoyed this place, where we stayed two nights. We had the room on the ground floor on the main street side, and it was large and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the price was great. Since we were next to the street, there was road noise, which we easily solved by wearing earplugs, which we always carry... More

Hola Jim, Thanks for your review! Unfortunately all the hotels/hostels in town have to deal with traffic so that is great advice. We do have rooms where you would have a little less noise however unless you stay long enough to get accustomed to the noise you are going to need the plugs. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and...

I wish there was a Hostel Sabana in every town I visit. Clean, new, hot shower, tv, lots of room, good location, with a friendly and helpful staff. Allowed me to cook and do laundry. All this for the best price in Costa Rica. Great stay!

On our second night at the hostel, they were away on a trip, so we were hosted by other family members. All of our hosts... More
