Hostel Urbano was the best Hostel i`ve stayed in Central America so far. Really amazing and worth every dime! The stuff is super friendly and the beds are a dream. Also the kitchen is amazing. Big and with everything you could possibily need!

Everything was really nice:-) I have maybe two recommendations for the future: -possible payment with credit card would nice -more facilities for the garden in terms of cosy sitting areas would be nice (so far there is only a mobile pavilion which is usually occupied by the smokers

Good, clean hostel in the university area -- away from downtown but still easy to get to by bus. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nice kitchen and decent breakfast included. Right across the street from a bus stop and bank, but a good supermarket is a bit of a trek. Not a party hostel, but unlike many hostels in San Jose they don't have a curfew. Reception closes, but you can get a key to head out before they do. Would definitely stay here again.

It's a fairly large hostel, with a big communal kitchen, and an upstairs. We stayed in a private room as well as the dorms, both of which were clean, sufficient and quiet. The wi fi works great in the upstairs sitting area, which is nicely decorated too. The location isn't too bad. There is a supermarket in walking distance, as well as two fruit stands up the road. Downtown is only a short bus ride. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Although this hostel is a little out of the city centre, the staff were brilliant and the place had a friendly, chilled atmosphere. Free pancakes in the morning, a TV to veg out, and a cute puppy dog made it feel like home. Would highly recommend staying here :)

The staff, Kate,Claudia and Camellia were outstanding. They made sure I made my appointment with my accountant and set aside a small table near the outdoor patio where I could work on my US tax returns. The fresh breakfast of pancakes,pineapple and coffee was ample and delicious. Kate introduced me to one or two other visitors from the USA who were also preparing to retire in Costa Rica and I was able to exchange useful information with them.
