I did not stay there. It was not in San Jose as advertised. It is in Heredia which was way out of my way. I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out where the address was in San Jose onlt to find out that it was not in San Jose. False advertising.

The staff was super friendly and helpful, but unfortunately the place itself is a dump. Badly infested with cockroaches and everything is dirty and cluttered. Worst hostel I've ever stayed in unfortunately, despite the great staff there.

Great hostel with very friendly staff and good pickup service. Is little bit out from San Jose center but you can catch the bus and the staff are very helpful pointing you in the right direction.


We both loved staying here for the two nights we were here. The staff are really nice and it's very secure. It's a perfect place for easy going backpackers who want to see how some people live in Costa Rica. It's a great and affordable place for your first couple nights in Costa Rica.

This is our third time staying here and honestly it is the best place to stay in costa rica. The place is spotless, the beds are big and comfortable, the showers have hot water, the wifi is great, the staff are friendly and the tours are the best around and the best value. We would 100% recommend staying here nd we will definitely be back.


While it was an adventure to find, it is amazing and offer the best of services for who they honored to host! Thank you for an amazing and affordable stay!

you welcome :)


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.
