Hostel Pangea was great. its very big but it has lots of common space. The bar and restaurant were both very good and the bar tender was awesome. Our room was clean and the bathroom space was very nice. My only complaint would be that later on in our travels we heard from other travellers than you get a free drink when you check in there, which we did not receive - with?!


Good hostel, bar area is great and it's easy to meet fellow travellers and socialise. Pool was a bit filthy. Bar could also do with some variety in music, the awful reggaton 24 hours a day does start to grate. Probably a good place to go if you are a young traveller passing through San José.


The shuttle from the airport was very convenient. The people we met where great. Lots of computers and tv's in the bar upstairs. Staff was ok but we're rude and dismissive a couple times. Bathrooms could b way better. The room was small and like a dungeon. The light wasn't very bright. Bed was ok but not great. Good location. When we asked the staff for a cab and told them our destination, they gave the cab the wrong place. Brought us to a dodgy place

the place didn,t seem to be clean. We paid 24$ each for a shuttle to get to the hotel from the areoport and a taxi would have cost 30$ for both ! the employee wasn't realy hepful. The price of the food and drink is too high.

I was well impressed with the size of this hostel. It is beautiful inside. really great conditions to be a super mega hostel. the infrastructures are the best I have been. unfortunately there is not much atmosphere going on. I felt bored all the time and that is something I rarely feel. Maybe staff should put more effort in bringing people together. just a thought.


Massive hostel. Rooms were dim and dark. No area for luggage. The key card didn't work on door so had to leave it unlocked. No ladder for top bunks. WiFi was down the whole time. Food nice but expensive. Clean bathrooms. A bit of a money making venture.
