Great value for the money. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are functional, free breakfast and decent wifi.The staff are very friendly and helpful. And everything you need is right nearby. Just a five minute taxi ride to the San Jose airport and a five minute walk to a bunch of bus stations. I've stayed at this hostel multiple times. It felt like a home base for backpacking around Costa Rica.

Im not sure why people give this place a good review... theres only one shower and one bathroom, and everyone wants to use it at the same time (before their 6am flight!), the artwork and rooms are nothing special, and both fans they brought me were broken. The whole place seemed dusty and broken down. If you book here you are paying $6 more than the normal price too. So either hostelworls or the hotel is keeping the other $4.50. Stay two doors down and get the free shuttle to the airport!
