    This, is without doubt, the best hostel I have stayed in. Not only in Costa Rica but in other countries as well. I highly recommend the hotel to all travelers who live on a budget and want comfort, security, helpful staff and a good location.

    It’s a wonderful hostel with all the classic hostel things, shared bathrooms, clean beds, communal rooms etc. It’s what you’d expect. Worth it for the price, single bed as low as $16.

    The hostel is good, but, like I’ve heard about most hostels in San Jose, it’s mostly just a pass-through place. I wasn’t able to strike up a conversation with any fellow travelers, so it felt a little cold. Overall good though! Very clean, plus shelf above the bed and a built in light were very nice.

    It was definitely the off season in San Jose, we may have been the only people staying in the facility the night we were there. We had a private room and bathroom. It was a spacious room and bathroom, everything was clean. There was AC. We only stayed one night so we didn't get a good feel for the place or the neighborhood but felt safe walking around during the day.

    Only stayed here for a night while transiting through. Perfect location for several bus stations and super easy to get to and from the airport. The rooms were clean and the beds comfy. Didn’t check out the communal areas but it seemed lively.

    Rooms were clean, although slightly warmer than I would like. Location was good and seemed safe enough. Can't comment on the kitchen etc as I never saw one.

    I booked a private room. My shower had someone else’s hair in it, the sheets had red stains on them, and the blankets had so many stains they looked like they hadn’t been washed in ages. Not clean. Other than that, the staff were lovely and it’s in a great location.

    Elevator broken, all rooms on 3rd or 4th floor. Listing said it was airconditioned total fraud, 3rd and 4th floor hot, lack of instant hot water in shower( should be replaced, not a problem at my current hostel) Very noisy place , no quiet hours , big groups abuse the noise level, worst of all full dorm room has a leaking toilet leaving a big puddle at the bathroom door, very disconcerting walking in water at night. Anyone of these failures warrant a discount. The pictures are deceptive.

    I needed a place to stay because I arrived late afternoon. This is barely a hostel, my dorm room had 3/8 people in it and it was not social at all. Kinda creepy because the lights are always turned off in the hallways. Big kitchen but it was staff only???? Good for location and a nights sleep but that’s it
