    Great location, more chill part of town so there’s not all the noise from the city but still so close you can walk everywhere! Breakfast included which was pancakes, fruit and coffee! They have a kitchen and lots of area to sit and hangout outside, inside and multiple bathrooms with showers so there was never a wait! Def recommend this place! They also have a laundry service which was really quick and 5$ per kg of laundry which they weigh right there so you know the price beforehand!:)

    Very nice hostel! Clean and with a kitchen you can use (plus breakfast is provided). Staff was very helpful. The vibe is extremely relaxed but there’s lots of seating to meet other travelers. About 30 min walk from downtown. Great hostel overall.

    I enjoyed this place alot. Good kitchen facilities and comfy beds. Breakfast is great and good areas to chill or socialise. Staff super friendly and helpful. It can get noisey and I think the staff should police the quiet time a little more other then that great place to stay and have returned since. Thanks

    This hostel had the potential of a 10/10 rating. The hostel was in a safe area with lots of great restaurants and bars, walking distance to all and staff was great. However the reason I booked there was because they are known to not be a party hostel and while I stayed there, they also had a group of obnoxious ticos that were telling into all hours of the night. Quiet hours at Urbano are obviously a joke.

    Very affordable and nice hostel near a trendy neighborhood, good breakfast, cute garden in the backyard, safe parking spot, hot water, ... The only thing this place is missing is more welcoming staff. Except that, it has it all!

    A pretty nice hostel for a short stay in San Jose. The staff is super helpful and the common area is really nice. The dorms can be quite loud as I don't think it's soundproofed at all. Would recommend for sure.

    This is an awesome little hostel, but it’s pretty damn far from the center and the major bus stations. Great views for sunset
