Only stayed one night but it couldn't have been much better. Dorm was nice, bedding, toilets and showers were clean and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Also, the tour and info office is great, he showed us that it was a short safe walk from the hostel to the central avenida and also explained about how to get to Tortuguero.

I loved being in this hostel. Got there the first night arrived in San Jose and decided to stay another night too. This hostel has such a great space, loved the swimming pool and all the common areas. Dorms and toilets very clean there are always ladies cleaning. In this place you feel outside the city even tho sometimes car remind you that you are still there. Considering that in San Jose there is not much to do, this hostel is a bonus. Staff were super lovely and friendly, especially Gerard!

The best place in San José. Cosy private rooms. Great staff, especially the guy who advised us and helped us to book our trip through the Costa Rica! Don't hesitate to book there!

Would recommend if you want to stay in the heart of San Jose. Walking distance to most highlights of the city however it is slightly difficult to find. Pool was nice. Kitchen was decent. Good place to stay.

Staff were pretty unhelpful and gave misinformation. Place was pretty grim. Free coffee and location were good.

Totally dilapidated and gross. Common areas and website photos look fine but rooms are disgusting.

Not the best hostel. It is loud as hell, and noise is constant, coming from the street, parties and an adjacent music school. The common are is the highlight even if it's not very clean, and some areas of thr place are kind of bleak. Streets around the place are dangerous and have robbers at night. There are sure to be better options in San José.

Good place for a night or two, the pool is great and the staff are helpful. San Jose just isn't a great place to be in general but this hostel was pretty good, close to the cinema so you can go catch a movie!
