Der eine ménnliche Receptionsmitarbeiter hat wirklich keine Ahnung, dass der Kunde seinen Lohn bezahlt. Er liebt und lebt die Reglemente statt mit zu leben. Some friendly education by a competent explainer might be necessary and helpfull. Kind regards Herbert

Hostel Urbano was an amazing hostel, that really became my home away from home. The staff is so great! They were all super friendly, fun, informative, and willing to help out with anything I needed. The pancakes, fruit, and coffee in the morning were also a great way to start the day! The hostel is close to buses, minutes from the University, and within walking distance of any shops or amenities you might need. I would come back to Costa Rica, just to stay at this hostel again!

A little out of San Jose centre, but good buses meant it was easy to get into town. Mixed dorms had lots of plug points and individual lockers. Private rooms were spacious, bathrooms clean. Kitchen area, including dining table and tv room were always available plus a pool table between certain hours. Free breakfast provided and nice garden. Would recommend. Staff were especially helpful when calling taxis and choosing where to eat. 4/5

This place is great for San Jose! In a really nice area with a good selection of restaurants and bars. The hostel has lots of things to do, there's a pool table, TV lounge area, garden, massive book exchange! I stayed there one night and when I go back to San Jose I'll stay here for sure!
