The staff was so friendly and helpful!! This hostel was clean and so nice. Even though it is in San Pedro, it was only a quick bus ride to the heart of San Jose.

Really nice place to chill out- TV off at 10 in the lounge was great. Great facilities and the private rooms are nice- one recommendation is to not get the room by the front door as you will be up at 7am with everyone moving around in the reception- apart from that all good!

This hostel is awesome! The staff are really friendly and willing to help you out and give advice where to go, how to get there, where to eat etc. free breakfast in the am with fruit and pancakes. Cool garden out back. Great location in what appeared to be a safe neighbourhood in San Jose. Supermarkets within walking distance and lots of restaurant options around. Major bank right across from the hostel. Parking space available if needed. We stayed in a private room, it was huge! Stay here!

We really enjoyed our stay at Hostel Urbano, was originally only going to stay for 2 nights but extended by another 2 nights as we liked it so much. Great breakfast, friendly staff and good location.

The staff members at the front desk were knowlegdeable and engagiing. The pancake breakfast with cut up fruit-strawberries and pineapple- was sublime. The other backpackers and tourists were friendly and inquistive.

Loved this place; one of my favorites in all of the hostels I've stayed in. Clean and quiet atmosphere, yet with enough shared spaces to promote conversation between guests. Staff was extremely helpful, and the pancake and fruit breakfast included in the nightly rate- nom!
