Not the best area. Lots of noise from the train. Stairs require caution. Outstanding staff. Facility very clean. Do not trust the map to get to this location. Overall very comfortable good spot for exploring downtown. Food from restraint is excellent. Good value for money.

Showers didn't have hot water. Not the end of the world, just something to be aware of.


Stayed for a night before flight from SJO, great place right above the restaurant, and the included breakfast was amazing. Great place to stay! Quite and comfortable.


Great place, the staff were wonderful. Only Raul spoke English but even in Spanish they make every effort to make you feel at home. The restaurant is a huge plus; instead of the usual continental breakfasts most hostels serve you get a full meal and the food is excellent. Guests get a 10% on other meals. Very relaxing atmosphere this is not a party hostel. One downside is the train that runs across the street, but it's not too bad. There are many markets near by as is the bus station
