I stayed here in February 2012 twice, traveling with my boyfriend. We spent 5 days in San Jose as we were waiting to fly out of the city to Canada, and again 3 days on our way back from Canada to Costa Rica. Although most people don't like San Jose, I loved it and I think a lot of my affection has to do with Casa Yoses Hostel, which we chose based on reviews and the neighborhood. Originally we where only going to stay 2 nights and ended up extending our stay based on the staff's friendliness and our general appreciation of the neighborhood. As this was our first time in San Jose, we had a lot of questions about things to do and how to get there - the staff was more than willing to help us and answer all our questions, including making several calls to the Bus companies to inquire about schedules.
San Pedro is usually not considered within walking distance from the city center, although the staff helped guide us on how to get there. We decided to go for it and walked to the center one day (about 45 mn walk) and loved it- the transition from the Center to the San Pedro neighborhood is absolutely gorgeous, with lots of parks and attractions to see on the way. After that first walk, we walked almost everyday.
Within walking distance of Casa Yoses (10 mn), you will find San Pedro Mall and a great supermarket. My boyfriend and I love cooking, so we where happy to see that the Hostel's two kitchens where well stocked with supplies: spices, plates, utensils, pots and pans, etc.
We stayed on both sides of the property and enjoyed both. Rooms are basic but clean with everything you would expect from a Hostel. The free computers, pool table, well stocked kitchen and staff friendliness was just the icing on the cake.
