Very nice people running the hostel. It was not the cleanest place in town. A musty/sour smell, low light and bed that was quite bad on the back. I killed a cockroach and spider in the evening. They were nice enough to refund my money, as I left after the first night.

There are several popular hostels in San Jose. I like Mi Casa most because of the location...even though it is a 30 minute walk, or 10 minute bus ride, from the small "historic" center of the city. One advantage is that it is 1/2 block from the city's main park, Parque Sabana, which is full of joggers in the morning and I like to jog. A second advantage is that it is at the beginning of the affluent west side of the city and is safer than other locations.

Perfect of you are looking for a hostel after a long flight or before you leave Costa Rica. Calm and relaxed


Helpful staff. Private room with shared bathroom is very small and you can hear everyone in the hallway. They give you pancakes for breakfast, which were good (but no syrup). Wifi doesn't work super well in all areas of the hostel.


Very safe, clean hostel. The TV area has some nice leather couches, and the outdoor area has a little bar and upstairs seating area. It was very clean and the staff was super-friendly and helped us get to the bus station. Definitely would recommend this place if you're spending a night in San Jose!
