It's cheap, the location is ok, you can meet all kinds of people there and the kitchen is useable.
I lived in Costa Rica for one year and everytime I was in San José I stayed in the Tranquilo Backpackers. ok, there are some holes in the floor and in the ceiling, but the beds are ok and you can take a hot shower 24/7. Internet and phone work perfectly. The atmosphere is cosy and the staff is soooo tranquilo. :)
BUT: don't stay in a dorm! The private rooms are cheap, too.
I don't know if I was able to stay there for more than 3 nights, but for a short amount of time I wouldn't go anywhere else.More
