The room was beautiful and we enjoyed our stay. The people who stay are generally older and there wasn't much interaction between guests. The staff were not that friendly, one in particular was quite cold towards us. The shower is also not great. Wasn't hot for me once, even though I used less water as they suggested. Breakfast was nice and free coffee and tea all day. Like everywhere in sanjose it's loud from angry traffic horns.


Included breakfast, nice. No hot water in the shower though, but no big problem. Not the right atmosphere if you want to meet people, but overall a great place to stay. Would stay again!


helpful staff, close to the city center but on a quiet block (aside from the noise from the train during the day), room was nice and clean, good coffee available throughout the day.... would definitely recommend!


We stayed in the hostel the night before we had our flight home and it was definitely one of the more comfortable hostels in costa rica. the bed was huge and the bathroom facilities were okay! The staff was really helpful (we had some trouble with a package that should arrive the day) and spoke perfect english. the location was okay, even if it seems to be a bit outside the city centre, it is a safe neighbourhood and you only have to walk 10-15 minutes to the city centre.


Twas a wonderful experience! Will stay here again.
