“Best place to stay and amazing hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

The location of this place is ideal, everything is close and its a very safe area. The views are spectacular. The rooms are beautifully decorated and super cozy. The beds are super comfortable and the sheets smell so good! All these details really make you feel at home. We could not believe the amazing and delicious typical breakfast we got in the morning. It makes me hungry to think about! But the most amazing detail about our stay was the wonderful hosts who were always there for us, ready to help us with anything we could possibly need. Matteo and Meranda really give their all to keep this place as the best place to stay in San Jose. Excellent Job!

Out of Bounds is a boutique hotel in the heart of the Central Valley.It is in a gorgeous location on the hillside looking out over the valley. The room was simply, yet nicely decorated and very clean.The bed was very comfortable
The hosts Meranda & Matteo couldn,t be more helpful and friendly
Thank you both for a pleasant stay!!!

Spectacular views, day and night, of the city and volcanos! Clean, comfortable, great price, breakfast served on your deck, free wifi, awesome Indian restaurant across the street, next door to Dentavac (where my husband was getting dental work done) but most of all wonderful, helpful owners! Thank you Meranda and Matteo! You can count on these people to help you with whatever questions or plans you have while visiting Costa Rica!

just easy and in true purr vida style

thanks Matteo, Miranda and you know you shall see me again soon!

Perfect way to end our 10 day tour of the country. Staying just outside the city allowed us still to feel like we were not in the hustle of bustle but close enough to get to what we needed. We had a lovely room with 2 queen beds and a full bed which was perfect to allow us to re-organize ourselves before our return trip home. We were able to jump on a bus that took us right to the middle of San Jose, so we did not need to drive in. The Taj Mahal Indian restaurant is right across the road (careful of the rush hour traffic during the week) and was very good. The view of the city and volcanos is wonderful too. Breakfast was a smoothie the first day and scrambled eggs the next. Just what we needed. Thank you!

I found the owners Matteo and Meranda exceptional in their hospitality, they made me feel like i was family and not request was too much. It was a relaxing worry free stay with one of the best sleeps i have ever had in the area. I found the Hotel clean and comfy and will definately return over and over again. A family emergency back home necessitated an early return on my trip but Matte and Meranda went out of their way to help with the arrangements and transportation requirements. Something you won't get from another resort.
Matte and Mer thanks so much and see you when i come back you can count on me coming back.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Standard King Room #4.
