Property Description

The original backpackers hostel in Costa Rica, we opened our doors in 2001, and have been the number one meeting spot in the capital ever since. Perfect for chillers and partiers, come and hang out with travelers from all over the world! Swaying palms, smooth tunes, free WiFi, swinging hammocks, that's the Costa Rica Backpackers way!

** Deluxe dormitories (Each bed offers a USB port, reading light, curtains and a huge locker)
** Happy hour every day from 4pm (Great staff waiting for you at the Bar)
** Hot showers
** Good WiFi

Located just a short walk from downtown San Jose and the lively Barrio Escalante, San Jose's most popular neighborhood with young 'Josefinos', where you will find great bars and restaurants. Our large tropical garden and pool offer an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Onsite bar and restaurant alongside kitchen facilities, gives you a choice of catering options. We offer unlimited free coffee and tea, free internet access, plus wifi throughout the premises.

The Backpackers crew are here for you and we know our stuff (English, French and Spanish spoken). We go the extra mile to make you smile.

All amenities such as banks, supermarkets and restaurants are within easy walking distance.

Come and enjoy a little slice of paradise right in the heart of San Jose.

Latest Review

" Pros: 1)the pool area and common space were great 2) good food 3)easy to organize and cost effective shuttle Cons: 1)very basic rooms, make your own bed etc. 2) VERY small lockers, had difficulty fitting all valuables in the locker provided. 3) the train is as loud but earplugs made for a good night's sleep. 4) organization isn't the best, emailed the hostel 1 month before arriving with a change (2 person to 1 and a different room) but change hadn't been processed when I arrived.
