A bit shabby around the edges and the building seems to shake when traffic goes by, but it's clean enough with plenty of space. It's nice to get those rarities in Central America, breakfast and internet service.

Room Tip: Room 15 benefits from being away from the worst of the traffic but the window doesn't seem to close, so beware in the rainy season!

This place is friendly and has good security. The bed was firm and the t.v. in my room even had American CNN. The shower had hot water, don't be confused about the bizarre instructions in the sign in the bathroom that says "apply less pressure for hot water" -- it was a hot shower. The staff was super friendly, the location is good, and for staying in downtown which does feel a bit sketchy, this is a relatively safe area.

Room Tip: My room was private and for the price substantially cheaper than other hotels in the area, especially if you book it online.

This hostel is a jem. Great value. For a dorm room $10-15, depending on female or mix, you get a clean space, hot shower, lockers, kitchen, HBO, and a free breakfast with fresh coffee. Very safe, and walking distance from the major bus depots. Across the street from the hare Krishna center, so you can hear the chanting at 5:45 pm. I came back on a second visit to San Jose. Love la Cuesta!

This place is very cheap and the staff are super-friendly. I would recommend it if you are just staying for a night travelling through. The location is good too, very close to Central Avenue.

However, whilst the place is clean, it has its faults. The place looks cute on the outside, and the reception area is nice too. Unfortunately once you go down the corridor and turn around the corner, the looks go down quite a bit. My room was very basic, simple and smelled a bit musty. The bathroom was clean but just a little too basic. The whole room needed a bit of TLC. And it's quite noisy.

I'm writing this while I'm still staying here. This is a very charming old building. All wood with many windows and architectual quirks. It is in a good central location (we walked here from the bus station) and clean. The staff is nice and the public areas are bright and sunny with a few stained glass windows. Only problems are that most of the rooms have noise issues. Our room for instance, was surrounded on two sides with hallways. And, with old wood floors, their are lots of noises as people walk by. Another guest here has a room on the front side of the building and she told us she couldn't sleep because of loud music across the street.
Another thing on the plus side, the breakfast is pretty good including fresh pinnapple, cereal, toast, juice and coffee. So, if you are not noise sensitive or have your own earplugs, this place is good. If not there are probably better places for you.

Room Tip: Tell them you want a room on the back side of the building to the left.
