    Great little spot in San José! Unbelievably friendly hospitality! Homemade breakfast made with love-simple clean, and comfortable room for sleeping at a very modest price point. There was even a locked gated driveway for us to keep our rental safe. I have nothing negative to say about this place!

    I stayed at Gaudy's for eight nights in a mixed dorm and absolutely loved it. The staff was friendly and always willing to help. It is clear they care about security and your safety. The hostel has a great atmosphere and has good spaces to hang out or play games. Breakfasts were always delicious and filling. If you intend to take day trips, I suggest booking through the hostel because there are so many options with great deals. I highly recommend the day trip to Manuel Antonio!

    Fernando is an amazing and kind host. He even allowed me to move my last night to a future date when I wanted to change plans. This hostel is clean and very safe. I stayed here on the low season so there was few people here. The neighbourhood is a very quiet/chill area which is safe. I recommend this place as a great landing point.

    Nice hostel. Had issues connecting to the WiFi, but otherwise everything was good. Relaxed atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff! Good location in safe, walkable distance to the main sights of San Jose. The airport shuttle service was useful and easy to organise, but too expensive and the driver spent most of the time looking at their phone!

    Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable nights sleep and felt very safe and secure. We marked the atmosphere down just because there was a large school group that had pretty much booked out the entire hostel at the same time we were here and we felt very overwhelmed with school children and their (loud) antics, furthermore felt we were being watched by their teachers! Overall very hostel has everything you’d desire from a hostel and would highly recommend!!

    Staff was great. Hostel was empty but still could hear everything through the glass walls of my private room. Overall cleanliness wasn't great for the price point.

    Staff was great, I met cool people but the beds were dirty, there was blood on the beds and some black stuff. The bathrooms were also really bad.
