About San Jose

San José is the capital of Costa Rica. It’s located centrally in the country among the Talamanca Mountains to the south and rugged volcanoes to the north. It has a population of around 1.4 million people, making it the largest city in Cosa Rica. Tourism is one of Costa Rica’s largest industries; you’re bound to have a great time!

Hostels in San José are beautifully maintained, so it’s no surprise that they’re such a popular choice among travellers. You’ll honestly feel like you’re in a resort, but better, because you’ll also be making friends from all around the world that are looking to adventure just like you. You’ll have the option of a dorm or private room and can easily
book in to a hostel that has a pool.

San José hostels near Barrio Amón & Aranjuez are ideal for enjoying historic architecture and a charming vibe in the streets. Los Yoses & Barrio Escalante are energetic areas that offer everything from small diners and bars to more upscale restaurant options and live music venues.

One of the best things to do in San José is visit the National Museum of Costa Rica, which outlines the country’s archaeological, cultural, military, and natural history. If you’re looking for souvenirs (or just love markets) you should take a walk through the Arts & Crafts Market to pick up some neat knick-knacks. Seeing a show or taking a tour of The National Theatre is a great way to get another historic experience in San José. The extravagant building will take your breath away!

The beauty of hostels in San José is that they’re within walking distance of the downtown attractions so all you really need to get around is your good walking shoes. If your feet are sore and tired you can also hop on a bus, it’ll help to know a bit of Spanish to make sure the bus is heading to your desired destination! For longer journeys you can use a rideshare service or Red Taxi. For trips outside of San José (including to Panamá, Guatemala, Nicaragua, etc.) you can grab a bus from the Coca Cola Bus Terminal.
