Property Description

So here is where we tell you why you need to stay with us…I'll start with some accolades, and then move to the important stuff.

2015 Lonely Planet gave Author's Choice honours to Hostel Bekuo as the #1 hostel in the surrounding area of San Jose area, and Tripadvisor's Award of Excellence from 2009-2015 but more important:

Well rounded, and excelling in every aspect is how I like to describe our inviting hostel and home. Our welcoming staff truly cares about your experience in Costa Rica, and will take the time to help plan your trip with insider information.

Bekuo is a relaxed hostel and we pride ourselves on giving our guests a good time and a good night's sleep, The vibe is in the moment and we often have small parties, on the front patio, or the garden, and we always go out to the nearby bars and clubs.

    We had a wonderful stay. Cheap, hospitable and very cozy. We were checking out in the morning and had a flight out of San Jose in the evening, and the hostel allowed us to stay all day without any problems. Very nice!

    Amazing hostel. In a really cute, trendy part of San Jose. The staff was so nice, the hostel was super secure, and the location was ideal.

    Decent hostel with spacious rooms, free breakfast (pancakes), nice garden, plenty of common space. Staff was not very welcoming or friendly, and some rooms are right on a busy street so it is very loud and was difficult for me to sleep on a Friday night.

    Chose this for our final night because LP marked it out as being lively and having a great atmosphere. Not true at all when we were there. Only One person on duty who appeared to be bored stiff. Breakfast 8-9. We went at 8.30 and were casually waved towards a large plate of cold pancakes, a bunch of bananas and a bottle of syrup. Worst budget breakfast in our month. We’d stayed in two other places in SJ both much better value. Business is for sale it seems so that may be explanation.

    There was a fully loaded gun hidden under a pillow on the sofa in the common area, while there were also small children playing in the same area.

    I went to this hostel for the reviews on its ability to give useful information, far from true, the russian guy at the desk didn´´t help me even to undestand the local bus guide wich was very confusing, didn´t answer any of my questions about them, I asked if I could borrow a charger for my phone/travel adapter as It was too late to buy one and couldn´t get any, asked again in case any guests could have left one forgotten and anwered that if any guest left somethngi behind they would sell it!!!

    This is not really a Hostel, more like an old house with rooms rented out. Very poor vibe and it shouldn’t even be in the website. On my stay there were even kids as young as 12 years old staying there which sounds like ilegal to me. I would definitely recommend looking somewhere else to stay.
