    Clean rooms, nice breakfast, nice tropical patio, on-site parking. Very helpful staff. We came here for the first few days and don't regret it. Go there if you fancy a good hostel with reasonable prices and friendly staff!

    Costa Rica Guest House was perfectly suited for our San Jose “pass through”. It is multicultural from Europe and the Americas - and multigenerational- from babies to seniors. Lots of families. Claudia and the staff are great and multilingual and keep everyone happy. Good breakfast and a safe place.

    Great value! Walking distance to downtown San Jose. Hot showers. No AC, but didn't even need a fan when I was there. I would stay again next time I'm in town.

    We spent 2 nights here at the tail end of a 10-day trip to Costa Rica. In short, this place offers outstanding value for money. Our room was large and comfortable, though not plush, w king bed. There was a standing fan that we didn't end up needing to use. It's an easy walk to the museums and attractions we were interested in. Breakfast was fine - nothing fancy, but several options were offered. We booked a ride to SJO ($27 USD for 2 people that worked out great. Overall, a win!

    We could walk to anything in San Jose, and it was very close to the major museums. Staff was helpful. You have to be buzzed in and out of the hostel, which helped with security. Shared bathroom didn’t seem to get cleaned/restocked on the weekend, but everything else was well kept. It’s nothing fancy, but a great, cheap place for young travelers looking for a place to sleep and shower.

    Quiet place to stay. Good security wise but not so much with the atmosphere. The staff seems to be lacking interpersonal skills specially for none French-speaking guests. They don't even bother to ask or give recommendations. Honestly, 1-2 stars stars in that category. They need to do a better job. I must say, budget friendly place to stay.
