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!


Stayed here 3 times and each time was lovely. Its really clean and the staff go above and beyond to be helpful and make you feel welcome. The location is slightly far out but its actually nice because san pedro isnt so hectic! Would def stay here again and would recommend!

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.
