Property Description

Here at Hostel Casa del Parque we offer an oasis in the city. Although we're nestled right in heart of the historic district, the mansion is situated like a pilar
amongst some of the oldest trees in the city.

The vision of this Costa Rican family-owned hostel is to share the true tradition of their country's hospitality. This property has been in the family for five generations and allows the traveler an almost home-stay experience with the freedom of a guesthouse environment.

There is no other private residence this close to the spectacular and statuesque
park. In fact, the neighborhood is the park. Upon entering, you quickly realize you've traveled back to the old days of grandeur and style.

A cascading staircase greets you in the foyer and a featured chandelier lights the elegant sitting area with a view of our indoor garden. Take time to look around the house and get a feel for the period in which it was built.
As far as night life is concerned, Barrio California in San Jose has got more restaurants and bars per square meter than anywhere else in the city. We are a stone's throw from The National Theatre and all of the major National Museums.

The guesthouse finds itself as a favorite amongst artists and musicians. The Central American Symphony members consider Casa del Parque their home when they play the National Theatre. Folk artists, dance troupes and popular bands from neighbouring countries return again and again while touring in San Jose.

For those travelers that might want to veer from typical budget hostel or party hostel environment and feel the real magic of a Costa Rican experience, our multilingual staff can guide you in any direction you may want to travel.
We offer free: WI-FI, luggage storage, fresh Costa Rican coffee and tea, cable TV, kitchenette, stereo and CD player and some of the best advice in town.

    Very Good

    I have to say the house is unique and the staff is good, but the rest.. I am not so sure. First of all, the beds!! Jesus, they are probably just as old as the house and they make awful noises. Also, I think you should kick out people who act weird, like stare at you while showering with the bathroom door open...That’s just wrong, guys. I couldn’t believe the weirdo was still around the following morning. Also, security should be improved a little, and some more privacy when it comes to dorms..

    We were not comfortable at this hostel, even for the one night we were there. Initially the facilities seemed ok, our private room was pretty dingy and the shower situation wasn’t great—there were only two showers, one in each dorm room, and both were open to the rest of the bathroom/dorm, with only a curtain separating them. We woke up at 2am because someone was loudly banging on the front glass door, the hostel apparently gave her the wrong key and she was locked out. Sketchy at best.

    Unlike all the other hostels we stayed in Costa Rica, this place was just horrible. The dorm is a loft over the garage (no door) and filthy. Beds are uncomfortable. Just a gross place so we left early.
