Stayed at Castle Tam for about 3 days, really had no complaints by the end of it. Had an interesting and friendly array of travelers (like most hostels do), and the fact that it's walking distance from La Calle is AWESOME. The staff is also quick to tend to any of the questions or requests I had regarding their facilities. Very basic hostel, nice cheap rooms, so not much else you can ask for in San Jose. Would stay there again if i needed a place to sleep, otherwise doesn't offer much else.


Jonathan was extremely helpful and went through the bus schedule with me and organized a shuttle for 435 am so I wouldn't miss the bus to Nosara. It was nice and quite at night and I slept great.
