Property Information:

BEST HOSTEL 2013
Here at Hostel Casa del Parque we offer an oasis in the city. Although we're nestled right in heart of the historic district, the mansion is situated like a pilar
amongst some of the oldest trees in the city.

The vision of this Costa Rican family-owned hostel is to share the true tradition of their country's hospitality. This property has been in the family for five generations and allows the traveler an almost home-stay experience with the freedom of a guesthouse environment.

There is no other private residence this close to the spectacular and statuesque
park. In fact, the neighborhood is the park. Upon entering, you quickly realize you've traveled back to the old days of grandeur and style.

A cascading staircase greets you in the foyer and a featured chandelier lights the elegant sitting area with a view of our indoor garden. Take time to look around the house and get a feel for the period in which it was built.
As far as night life is concerned, Barrio California in San Jose has got more restaurants and bars per square meter than anywhere else in the city. We are a stone's throw from The National Theatre and all of the major National Museums.

The guesthouse finds itself as a favorite amongst artists and musicians. The Central American Symphony members consider Casa del Parque their home when they play the National Theatre. Folk artists, dance troupes and popular bands from neighbouring countries return again and again while touring in San Jose.

For those travelers that might want to veer from typical budget hostel or party hostel environment and feel the real magic of a Costa Rican experience, our multilingual staff can guide you in any direction you may want to travel.
We offer free: WI-FI all over the house, luggage storage, fresh Costa Rican coffee and tea. Internet desk, cable TV, kitchenette, stereo and CD player and some of the best advice in town.

    Casa del Parque is our own little haven during our trip to Costa Rica. We are always coming back, choosing our next destination from there. The hostel is directly at Parque Nacional, you can walk into the centre easily. The warm welcome by Roger and Haylie (?), the beautiful garden terrace and the clean kitchen give enough space to relax after some exhausting traveling. Spacious communal areas in- and outside in Casa del Parque invite to relax after walking through busy San José.
