The staff was friendly and helpful and the other guests were cool. Complimentary pancake breakfast was excellent. Pura vida!


Hostel Urbano is an excellent place to stay. This was my first hostel experience and I found it really enjoyable. The facilities are great. There is a kitchen which is fully stocked with everything you should need to cook your own food. There is a fantastic garden to just chill out in. There are also numerous other places to just relax and catch up. They also have a tv room with great seats. I had one of the private rooms and was not disappointed. It had it's own shower and toilet. Very clean.


Open your mind. And you will see. From booking two months in adVance to leaving I was treated very well by the staff. From places to go and see and things to do

Wonderful experience, great amenities, knowledgeable and helpful staff, flexible on everything, big room, clean bathroom, hot showers. Fantastic overall experience!


Great place to stay with awesome people (especially the staff). Will stay there for another night for my flight!


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
