    Such a cozy place to land in my travels! I am so grateful I landed here. Perfect place to unwind, settle in, and enjoy some comforts before traveling again! Great location. Next to great súper market and not far from downtown! Also a great place to meet fellow travelers!

    The staff was immaculate. The owner of the Hostel arranged for his brother, Erik, to pick me up from the airport and take me to the hostel. It made it so easy to arrive and get to the hostel at a reasonable price. The breakfast was delicious! The owner's nephew, Justin, was so helpful in finding times for me to take a bus to Uvita. The owner drove me to the bus stop, and I was able to travel out of San Jose with no trouble! The whole staff was truly amazing, and I highly recommend this place!

    When I arrived I was greeted by the friendliest staff that made me feel right at home. The hostel had a welcoming and calm atmosphere, was obviously well looked after, clean and comfy. Even though I only stayed a night for an am flight I wished I could stay longer. Was the perfect place to stay overnight in San Jose for an early am flight. Easy to get to the airport and there is a supermarket there blocks away. When I’m ever in San Jose again I will definitely stay here again :)

    Great location for us, easy access and nice people. We could make ourselves at home and feel comfortable. They helped arrange a ride to airport and gave tips on travel and future car rentals at a great value.

    The staff at reception were so nice (even though said he was new!) and welcoming after a long travel day, the place is so clean and homely and nice pancakes for breakfast. Only stayed 1 night before the airport but would really recommend for a good nights sleep!
