    One of the nicest hostels I’ve ever been to. Room cleaned daily, en-suite bathroom, friendly staff, and I got my 8 bed dorm to myself! Hostel offers breakfast, tour booking, and car rentals. Excellent location and service. Felt very safe as a female solo traveler. Would recommend to anyone.

    Hostel Del Paseo is a great hostel in a good location, well connected to buslines and walking distances from terminals for leaving/entering San José. Staff were great, place was clean and complimentary coffee and breakfast is 👌. My only complaint would be the 2 absolute nut cases staying there. That said recommend if you need a place to crash in the city.

    I stayed in a 6 bed mix dorm, the bed are comfy and the rooms are clean, the shower was cold and a little broken. The staff was very informative and really nice. The hostel isnt really near any entertainment even though center town is in walking distance, everything close's down early. This hostel was a chill place to stay, and I would stay again!

    Great hostel, centrally located, with easy parking right outside the facility. The game room on the fifth floor is a nice touch! Breakfast was very minimal so bring your own or plan to purchase at their cafeteria.

    Overall the place is OK for 1 or 2 nights. The breakfast was disappointing, the shared kitchen was too small to make anything ourselves. The location is nice and relatively safe, the staff was very helpful and kind.

    Worst place ever, no security, you have to sleep with your things so it wont get stolen, or hide them. someone had walked into my room and took my phone as it was charging right next to my bed in the middle of the night. would never recommend this place nor want to stay here ever again.
