“Newly Remodeled, Great People, Great location!”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

I've stayed here several times over the last couple of years and had a great experience each and every time. Now that the whole place has been remodeled, it's even better. Whether you're staying in San Jose for one day or an extended stay, this is a great option. You're bound to meet good people and I can't say enough good things about the staff. *I also stayed at their other location in Guanacaste. These guys are doing it right!

Room Tip: Call early. This place fills up fast!

it is a good place, clean, quiet but the beds in the new rooms are falling apart, we stayed there 2 different times in may, the first room we got the bed was very close to break down, i had to get a tool to fix it, the sink didnt work either, the second time we got unfortunatelly the same room, same conditions after 3 weeks, bed had to be fixed again and sink still wasnt working, it seems to be a nice place but they should work on mantainence a bit as prices are not very cheap.

This was one of our favorite hostels in Costa Rica. It is a great place to stay if you absolutely "have" to stay in San Jose because maybe your flight got in late at night like ours did. Only 15 minutes from the airport. Staff is very friendly, rooms are spotless clean and prices are amazing. You even get a great pancake breakfast! We took over a dormitory room with our 6 people and paid about $43 bucks/night. Highly recommend this place if you need a cheap, clean and safe place to stay in San Jose.

I came to visit Costa Rica and decided to stay at Mi Casa Hostel because of its location near buses and the local area I was told was safe, however it rains alot in San Jose Costa Rica. I came in the dorm room after being out and there was water all over the floor from as roof leak was not very pleasant and happy to see water all over the floor near by bed. The communal kitchen is big, however the cookware is very old and could be replaced. I was unable to much the TV one night because the staff at the front desk was playing loud music and didnt seem to care. The other nice thing was a free little cook yourself egg and bread breakfast, although the morning I was leaving at 6am and ask if I could have breakfast and was told we dont put it out until 7am. Could have been a little better
