Property Description

Every single person yearns for something – this can take place in the open, or sometimes within your mind – all of us desire meaningful connections. 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 is not a Hostel, this is a Lifestyle, and this is – The Place to Be. We are Fauna!

    Simply put, the BEST hostel I've ever stayed at . The atmosphere of a 4 star hotel with a very casual and comfortable vibe. The bathrooms and showers have beautiful tile and are spotless. The beds and pillows are new, and there is plenty of space. The only thing better than the facilities are the staff. Professional, very helpful and just really cool folks

    Rooftop is awesome and with some lights and decorations would have been an even bigger hit. Rooms are super stylist and beds really comfy. Free breakfast was very good! Pool was needing some attention but overall very satisfied!!

    Other than the location, Fauna Luxury hostel has been a great choice while staying in San Jose. It’s an inviting place, the beds are actual beds (small, but comfy), the food is pretty good, and the staff have been very responsive/helpful when called. Overall, i would recommend Fauna to anyone, same for The Stray Cat closer to downtown.

    For a one night stay this was a great place! A beautiful entrance and lobby with safe, gated parking for our rental car. The grounds were well taken care of. Our room was big! But also very blah..... no decor at all and it smelt pretty funny- but for what you pay its not a deal breaker. Very helpful and friendly staff- we had a great time getting to know the bartender who made great sangrias. The breakfast included was perfect for a small, quick meal to start the day.

    The hostel is really beautiful look-wise. You really don’t feel like you’re in a city. There’s a lot of extra things to do like pool, ping pong, Jacuzzi, yoga,etc. My only complaints was that the shower had hair on the walls (really gross) like they didn’t clean it or something (in our private room) and also the location is really far from the city center. But overall, a good place to stay for the night before our flight home.

    Basically a hotel at hostel prices, many elderly guests staying here. Way out from the city centre with not much going on in the surrounding area, although supermarket nearby. Pool table in need of some repairs, and kitchen not the best. Staff (Randy???) were extremely helpful. Not ideal for Backpackers

    This is a great place to stay if you are only in SJ for one night. No social atmosphere but a great place to rest up and chill. My only complaint is that the receptionist informed me that the only bus to La Fortuna was at 6.30am and so I woke up at 4.30 to go catch it. At the bus terminal they then told me the bus was actually at 8.40am - rather an unpleasant 2.5 hour wait could have been avoided!
