Staff were lovely when we arrived but everything was pretty disorganised and they weren't sure which were our beds. The overnight member of staff never showed up so we were locked in the hostal and no one was on duty. People were smoking in the inside communal areas. There was no one around when we got up and so no breakfast even though we were told the night before that it would be available.

A great hostel and super friendly and helpful staff!!! As there also live some exchange students in another part of the house, there is a very nice atmosphere and feels like living in a second home abroad :) I will stay there another time on my way back south.


The hostel is located in an upmarket area. It is surrounding by smart villas and fancy houses. The hostel is well worth its money. The staff, especially Andre is amazingly patient and helpful with the guests. I would definitely stay here again if I visited San Jose.


hostal stola was awesome! super clean, pricy, pretty, nice quite location and great stuff. I really enjoyed my stay at stolas and hope to come back there someday.


Helpful and friendly staff. Even offered me a beer for writing a review of them, though Hostelworld wouldn't let me until 2 days after I left. Nice neighborhood, close to a supermarket and bus stop that goes right into town. A little hard to get to, but that's honestly probably for the better considering the location. Fully stocked kitchen which was nice. Hard to find those in hostels.


Great Hostel, perfect home from home. The owners know there stuff, know how to party and know their customers needs... all of this together creates a great vibe in the hostel. Not in the centre but that just adds to its charm, stayed once and went back for a nice warm welcome after travelling the beautiful country.


There's a good reason why this place is rated number 1 on tripadvisor. Awesome staff make you feel like you are staying with friends and this place is so small you feel like you're at home. In a safe location in an upmarket residential area just outside downtown, but with all the amenities you'd need. I can only recommend this place!


Great hostel, and the guys were so helpful to myself John and girlfriend Sarah. Even dropping us up to the bus station in their car. So friendly and helpful!!
