    My second time staying here, a great place to hang out, chill, meet people. I was here on a lay over, very close to the bus stations, the staff is more than friendly and are always willing to help you wherever you need to go. Definitely will be staying here again!

    Amazing place to stay with clean comfortable beds and such friendly staff! Location is great and they offer many tours throughout the city. I do recommend spending the extra $2 for a room with AC it’s so worth it! Very cool lounge upstairs with a pool table ping pong and lots of other games. Stayed 2 separate times and would stay again if I ever find myself in San Jose.

    Great hostel! The rooms were super clean, well organized, comfy beds with warm blanket. Free clean towel!! Location is great, just a couple a blocks from the main bus station, airport bus, shopping/ walking zone and the city market. Decent breakfast. The chill area has darts, pool table, movie area with cable TV (sports!). I would definitely recommend Paseo to anyone going to San Jose!!

    This is a great hostel to stay at when you’re in San Jose. The 24 hour reception is very helpful when you need to leave early or arrive late and the staff is kind and attentive. The beds are very comfortable and the hostel is very clean. Would go back.

    Perfect place to stay in San Jose. Well staffed with a good restaurant, and tour center. My only complaint is the inner room was not super well ventilated but we had 3 fans in the room which really helped.

    Clean, comfortable and value for money, especially with the breakfast included (cereal, toast, coffee and tea). Hostel has great facilities, including entertainment area on top floor - free popcorn is a nice touch! Lockers for all beds and secure entrance. It was quiet and peaceful when I was there. Only slight issue was the dorm I was in didn't have any natural ventilation, so it gets a little musty in there.

    Helpful staff and very comfortable beds. Slight lack of atmosphere but that has noting to do with hostel rather than the people staying there. Dorms were definitely clean but bathroom could be cleaner

    Well located hostel - walking distance to Mercado Central and the Teatro Nacional. People at the front desk were very helpful. Rooms are cozy, but no hot water. Nice communal space on the 5th floor but if your room is on the 4th floor, bring ear plugs to sleep - but honestly, good stop for one night.

    Staff was very friendly but the bathroom was dirty and other guests spread their stuff all over the sleeping room and slept in other beds than the ones assigned to them. Overall experience was meh but I attribute this more to the other guests than the hostel which I think is fine overall.
