    Excellent staff. From the front desk who lent me an umbrella to the security guard who called me a taxi at an ungodly early hour. I shall definitely recommend this place... especially if the guest uses the Ticabus Station that is only two blocks away.

    One of the best nights sleep we've had - this place feels like a hotel and is in a perfect location close to a supermarket and to the Ticabus station. Staff are so friendly and helpful and the upstairs lobby is a great place to play games or just sit and relax. Overall a fantastic place to stay!

    This hostel is not only cheap and clean, but in a great location in town as well! My only reason for not giving it a 10 star rating is due to the lack of atmosphere and gathering areas within the hostel. I stayed 2 different nights about a week and half apart and it was the same both times.

    Place was super clean! Very quiet. Super comfy beds. Great blankets. Good location But this is not a party hostel. There is no bar. No nightlife. DO NOT EAT AT THE CHINESE PLACE NEXT DOOR! We ordered and there was a cockroach in my chop suey.

    Excellent location, very clean, staff most especially Claudia was so helpful and welcoming and helped me to organise and maximise what I could do in the short time I had in San Jose. Bed very comfortable with own socket and bedlight, Unfortunate no kitchen for own personal use but they do provide meals at an an extra cost and free tea and coffee. Again huge thanks to Claudia, always always so keen to help, providing maps, printing boarding pass, tourist a. I would definitely stay here again :)

    Awesome location in a buzzing (aka gentrifying) neighborhood. Hipsters aside, it's totally safe to walk around and there is a nice French bistro just across the street. Impeccably clean, although the air fresheners in the dorms were a bit strong, but overall everything was sparkling. Not much of a central social area so it has more of a hotel vibe, but if you're just chilling out for the night then it's nice for watching Netflix and being recluse. Definitely would stay again!

    This hostel is perfect for a night or two. No real atmosphere to meet people though or kitchen to use. Very clean, central and staff was very helpful. Recommend for a layover

    Nice place to stay, staff super friendly and always willing to help you. The dorms are clean and spacious, beds small but really comfy. Location is really good, with walking distance to city center, you can find several restaurants nearby as well as bus stations to the airport and other main cities in Costa Rica. The hostel offer a complimentary breakfast very basic (coffee, juice, bread and jam). It is a good place for the value.

    Location is great you actually feel safe at night walking to and from the hostel. Super clean it feels new, beds really comfy and WiFi good (we were able to watch Netflix without a problem). Kitchen is only for staff though which is weird and at night they close it so unless you want to fill up your water with bathroom water you can’t get any in the evenings. Not much atmosphere but we were ending our trip in CR so we didn’t mind that.
