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:

    Loved this place. The location was great. There was 24 hour reception. The hostel had a gate to be buzzed in. It felt very safe. The space was very clean and the atmosphere was artistic and contemporary. There was a computer to use and good pancakes and bananas for breakfast. My only suggestion is to replace one of the strings on the guitar so that it can be played. There is a piano for the piano players. If you like music there is a good venue nearby - Mundoloco.

    We enjoyed our stay at Hostel Bekuo. The two gentlemen that run the hostel were very pleasant to deal with. The is a grocery store & several restaurants nearby. We had a private room with a bathroom. There was hot water and the beds were comfortable! We enjoyed hanging out with the bunny as well. We would definitely stay here again! My only suggestion would be to add a clothes hook in the bathroom.

    Stayed for 4 nights and when returning to San Jose after 2 weeks in CR, it was the obvious choice to come back to. Plenty of space to chill out and the double room was good. Special thanks as Stefan, the owner, took an amazon delivery for me and kept it safe for two weeks before I could collect it. He sorted a rental car for us and offer good advice on CR. The kitchen is well equipped and big.The location is perfect, close to the best restaurants in town. Bed sheets could be newer, only negative

    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.

    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 never leave reviews but I feel like I need to leave one for this place because I choose this place based off good reviews.. I have never been treated so badly at any place I have ever stayed. The owner was very rude to us and made us feel soooo uncomfortable. Actually swearing at us.. saying “ wow, seriously man, f***k I will just show you” he did apologize the next day saying that he was just “ really tired” . But his behaviour and attitude didn’t change. Keep your apology.
