I stayed in Castle Tam on two sperate occasions whilst passing through San Jose and each time the staff were really helpful(especially Jonathan the manager) and the atmosphere very friendly and lively. Its situated in a really nice neighbourhood and an easy ten minute bus ride from the centre. The breakfast is in a cafe and when i was leaving very early for the airport the next morning before the cafe was open, they gave me eggs. Such a bargain. Great hostel!

- We're in the heart of lively, upscale San Pedro, only 300 meters from the University of Costa Rica and the student nightlife of Calle de la Amargura. Our hostel is 10 minutes by bus from downtown San Jose and walking distance from San Pedro Mall, three supermarkets and many restaurants! We have two full kitchens and plenty of fridge space for your food. Hang out with fellow travelers in the courtyard, or watch students pass by on the outside terrace. San Pedro is a safe neighborhood in San Jose, so we enjoy taking our guests out for movie nights, skating, city walks and pub crawls on Calle de la Amargura.
