“A friendly, silence, nice house in San Jose”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Yes, it is not a hotel. You can feel yourselves in your house. Very nice decoration, friendly athmosphere, tasteful breakfast and silence environmental focused place covers you in San Jose by Kaps Place. There are nice local restaurants around which have very nice monu with reasonable prices. Kaps is close to many different museos, some of them at the walking distance. Kaps is also very safe place. In case of any risk, they have a two lock doors to reach the reception.
We spent four days and we used the Costa Rica tours by using Kaps connections. All the tours were fantastic.
Next time in Costa Rica, we will definitely be there again.
Thanks to all friendly people in Kaps.

This place was clean, comfortable, yummy breakfast, wifi access, incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Beds were a little hard, but everything else about this place was wonderful. Stayed here with a group of 8 youth and 2 adults. Everyone enjoyed it.

Nice place to stay, friendly staff and very helpfull. The rooms are nice and clean, common area is colorful and very inviting, and the location is good - its a walking distsnce from the centre of town. We used it as a base between traveling to places around Costa Rica and it was nice to come back to a homey place. Great value for your money!

The common spaces are homey, with a hammock and a garden. They gave us parking, and had coffee available all day. The place did have a bit of a hostel feel. Also, we stayed in two different rooms, one of them was nice, but there was one right behind the reception area, which was noisy and small.

Kaps Place has lovely communal areas, including a kitchen, garden and a DVD lounge. The staff were lovely and very helpful and the breakfast was great.The room was a bit basic for the money without a TV or much furniture.

Kaps place is an absolutely adorable place with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were small yet very clean, and a great value for the price. There are plenty of places to hang out if you are with a group of people (living room style sections). The kitchen was also a great resource that was available. I would definitely stay there again.
