The hostel provides accomodation services that I rated as average because there is nothing special about it. It can be much better, if they want to; it is a family home converted into a hostel. I assure you that is better than camping In tefm of The location, is not the best , but the Bus to San Jose runs right by so you can make plan to leave early for San Jose and return late in the evening. There is also a super market and bakery a couple blocks away. The peros eho runs it is helpful.


The hostel accomodations is good for a couple of nights, but after that is up to the travelers to make decision baseon personal standards.


Too crammed, too many beds in one room, too dark, and the smell of stuffiness was everywhere, kitchen was a bit of a mess

The owners of the hostel were extremely kind, and went out of their way to accommodate us. It's close to the airport, and out of the busyness of downtown. It's a great deal for the price. I loved all the house plants too.

thanks for the review


The staff were great driving us around everywhere for a good price. Kitchen was well equipped. It's pretty far from Central but that's what we wanted, neighbourhood was nice. Breakfast was good but I needed to add a banana or something to fill me up Didn't like: Only 1 toilet and the shower is in there too so I was stuck needing to go a few times, it's also right between the kitchen and eating area with a whole in the wall made it not very private. The walls are also paper thin.

thaks for the review...remamber we have 2 toilets and 2 showers the wall do not have holes! holes do not have windows if you want something more private why did not get a private bathroom??


Room was quite small, pancakes for breakfast were nice. It's in santo Domingo which apparently isn't in San Jose
