Join us in the restructuring of the world of Hostels as we combine luxury and accessible pricing to ensure you “a champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget”. This idea started from a Boutique hotel that offered a luxury level of service through the different amenities, minimalistic designs and breathtaking mountainous views.
“Everybody needs a space; there is always a better place”.

Now it is structured as an innovative Hostel experience where we offer guests a personalized Pod where you can decide when you want to connect with the outside or not, En Suite bathrooms and the entire social interaction that you crave.

    This place was awesome. We couldn't believe the price we paid for our room. Totally recommend! We're sad we didn't stay longer but will definitely stay here again :)

    I made this hostel my home base while travelling around Costa Rica returning there 3 time’s through February, and plan on returning any time I am in the San Jose area. The front desk staff and cleaning crew were all very accommodating and made you feel like family, always saying hi and making sure you are comfortable. The facilities were also great, from the pool in the back, fun table games and board games to the great rooftop! Breakfast is also fantastic! Can’t wait to go back!

    Great hostel! Nice, clean, modern, beds were comfy and nice and private with the curtains. Lockers are spacious so you can fit in everything. Great rooftop and common area downstairs but it didn’t feel very vibey and sociable. Perfect for a quick stay before/after flying but don’t know about a longer stay

    Definitely a more "luxurious" hostel, you get so much for little money! The hostel was very clean, free breakfast was included and very nice. They also have a pool and a cooperation with a gym down the street where you can train for free. The hostel is located in Escazú, a thirty minute ride from San José. The area is nice, there is also a modern supermarket just 50m from the hostel. I would definitely come back!

    They are not always aware if toilets are running out of soap. They also don't let you know if advance if the schedule of the breakfast is going to be changed. I was not the only one who had that problem. They say they put announcements every where but 1) guests are not always aware of those papers hanging, and 2) they are wrote in bad English. Would be better if people in the kitchen let you know in advance that there will be a change. Still is not kitchen staff fault, those ladies were so nice.

    Great hostel super comfy and lots of space to hangout. The atmosphere was okay but I don't think I can put any blame on the hostel for that.

    Location is not great, but OK. Staff is helpfull. The place used to be a hotel, so it’s big and pretty nice. In terms of cleaning i would say it was a 7/10 the kitchen is NOT CLEAN AT ALL! And there was absolutely no hot water. The rooms are nice. Beds have privacy, and there’s a lot of space.

    Very Good

    The price was great, neighborhood is pretty nice, and feels safe. If you're looking for close to downtown, this isn't it, but it's a good area, and the bus is easy enough. Hostel itself was kinda dirty, and had very little social life. Good enough for a night, but I wouldn't spend too long there.

    Unfortunately, when we arrived the hostel was closed and locked up. We were not able to call or confirm our booking. So we were not able to see any of the hostel. I cannot review any of the amenities. The location however, was nice. I am not sure if the hostel was closed due to COVID or for another reason. There was no explanation and there was no communication or indication on hostel world. I would use this review as a word caution during the time of COVID. Otherwise, I'm sure it is great!
