    Everything a good hostel should be. Rooms are super quiet and away from the noise but there's nice common areas to meet others. Centrally located, awesome staff, comfy beds, great price. I'll definitely stay again.

    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.

    Great for a one night stay. Very close to the Tina Bus station. Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and comfortable. Some areas to chill out but not much atmosphere. Basic free breakfast available. Would stay again.

    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.

    Not a bad place overall.. Centrally located with more of a hotel feel! The top floor is nice and open with pool table, ping pong, darts, and also one of the biggest TVs I have seen in a "hostel" which at times there can be inconsiderate couch sloths hording the remotes day and night!

    Very Good

    The picture of a dorm showed in the profile of the property is misleading. Dorms have no windows, one fan between 8 people. This was the first place ever I couldn't sleep at simply due to lack of oxygen in the room. Very convenient location if you're going to the airport the next day, also near 7/11 bus terminal, but a weird vibe due to building being an ex office space and right on a main road. Huuuge bonus- game tables and a movie area at the common floor. Friendly and helpful staff.
