    Perfectly suited my requirements for an overnight in San Jose, 10 minutes from the bus station I needed in the morning. Clean, tidy and welcoming.

    Amazing host, great price for a central location and great Costa Rican breakfast! Only thing is the tram is quite loud at 5 am but that is the only minor complaint!

    We loved this hostel. Lovely host and great to practice your Spanish on. Breakfast in the restaurant downstairs was lovely and another very amazing hostess. She could have been the sister of the lady upstairs! Only drawback was the noisy tram, but it did add to the atmosphere!

    Good for a one night stop as near the bus station! All staff were very friendly and helpful and the free breakfast was a plus. Would stay again if stopping over in the area

    Comfy bed. Safe hostel in central San Jose. Small kitchen and can only pay by cash. But had a lovely stay.

    It’s a good place to stay as you’re coming or going but I wouldn’t recommend long stays here. It’s inexpensive so it’s a great place to crash before or after a flight but it’s quite small and not much atmosphere. The host was great though. Very very friendly.

    The hostel was fine overall. I highly recommend not getting a room close to the kitchen because of the noise from other guests. We did not have hot water for the 2 nights we stayed wich made for very interesting showers. The breakfast was a real treat!

    Ok place for one night. Flor was friendly and accommodating. I just wish they had some rules about noise late at night. I was woken up at 2:30 am by a group of loud American tourists talking very loudly outside my door. They should tell guests to keep it down. Other than that, it was fine for a one night stay.

    When I stayed there was absolutely no atmosphere. There aren’t really any common areas. No-one mans the front desk so.. that’s weird. None of the staff speak any English when you do see them. I know that’s a bit of a privileged gripe but come on dude your in the capital city. Second on that note is they don’t accept card payments (which to be fair you are warned about in the hostel bio, but still..).

    Terrible kitchen. Just in the hosted living room with her sweet girl watching TV. Good location but that’s all. Next to a very loud road
