The Hostel 156 is the best hostel in San Jose!!It's the perfect place for anyone,for a families,a group of friend or couples.
The guys are kind, helpful and really awesome (you can get there in the middle of the night and one of them will be waiting for you!!).The hostel is more than clean and cozy,the beds are super comfortable,the bathrooms are big and clean,there is a wonderful kitchen,2 area relax one inside and the other one outside.It's a 5 min walking from the centre of San Jose and it's easy from there get a bus to go anywhere in the city.
I'll go back foe sure!!!

We began our trip in San Jose and have choosen Hostel 156, random, without recommandations from others. That is why we are writing this one. It is a very great hostel, opened it's doors a few months ago. Very nice people (willing to help you every time), in the centre of the city (near by restaurants, musea etc.) and the rooms are perfectly clean. In short, a very nice place to stay when you are in San Jose!

I stayed at the 156 hostel for a couple of days on my last trip to costa rica and really enjoyed it. The hostel has a great location for it is just a short walk away from the nicest part of the city center, where most museums, plazas and restaurantes are located. It is also right next to an area know for its nightlife, in case you want to go out at night. The staff was specially helpful and gave us great advice not only about San Jose, but of pretty much everyplace we were going to. The hostel had a nice atmosphere and I would definitely stay here again.

Not only for the price, confort and area.... Hostel 156 is definitely the best choice in San Jose, Costa Rica. It's location is superb, it's close to everything of interest from Downtown, Restaraunts, Malls, Museums and City to the amazing National Parks, Forests and Volcanoes. Next, comfort inside the hostel is great; the beds and pillows are top of the line, common areas are interesting and the ping pong table is great for hanging around. The internet's speed is probably the fastest in the area so using your computer is hassle-free. Most important, the owners are amazing people; they'll help you out with anything and they're very well informed with almost anything that might help you in your trip. Actually the first week they gave us info of a great party at a bar close to the hostal and it was CRAZY! Actually I lost my passport (drunk) and found great aid with info on how to get a new one at the US Embassy thanks to Juan, one of the owners. Basically it's very comfortable, clean and close to everything at a great price! Hostel 156, thanks!

Room Tip: If you're a couple you should consider asking for a private room!
