Hostel Urbano

San Jose, Costa Rica

My intention was to stay at a different hostel every night on my backpacking trip through Costa Rica, but I kept finding myself back at Hostel Urbano. The staff was beyond helpful and patient with every person staying there. The hostel itself was clean, comfortable, and safe. It was close enough to the center of the city but not close enough to be frustrated with the noise. Hands down the best hostel I have ever stayed at, I'd recommend Hostel Urbano to everyone!

Arenal Backpackers Resort

La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Nice, clean hostel with friendly staff. Within walking distance from the bus station which was helpful, and reasonable distance from the volcanoes. The only negative thing I'd have to say is that the keys they gave us for the rooms never worked, so if you weren't friendly with your bunkmates I could see it becoming frustrating. Also the fact that the reception desk was in the same vicinity of the restaurant made it difficult to find any quiet time.
