    A place with a heart perfect for a night, two, or a few! A place where time does not move you, you move with time, you are the yearning to live, the yearning to cross, the yearning to know — what lies beyond the sea..

    We really enjoyed our stay at In The Wind. The room was quiet and very comfortable, and all the facilities were great. The staff were incredibly accommodating and friendly. The location in San Pedro was nice, lots of cafes and supermarkets in walking distance. And the pancakes every morning were damn tasty! Thank you guys

    A lovely, relaxed hostel to stay in if you want a calm night in San Jose after a busy day travelling. Beds are comfortable with plug sockets, curtains etc; nice free breakfast and coffee; good information available about onward bus times.

    We only stayed one night at this hostel but we found it good. It was close to a nice area of Sam José with lots of restaurants and walking distance to museums. The breakfast was also really really good. The only negative was the room was a bit dusty/not super clean but wouldn’t not stay again. The staff was also very helpful.

    We had a private room with private bathroom. The bathroom had an odd smell the entirety of our trip. However, the hostel atmosphere was fun! We met some lovely fellow travelers.

    Very average hostel, strong smell of humidity inside the room. Only a very tiny fan is provided. Quite noisy area and window cannot be closed properly so you can hear everything from the street very well. Owner was ok but not super friendly either. Door lock working very hard so it s a struggle to lock your room. Overall I definitely stayed in better places. Cannot recommend.

    The guy at reception was about as helpful as a hole in the head and was questionable if he even liked people at all! He literally grunted a few times and when I asked any questions pointed to a binder with leaflets. This is the worst staff experience I’ve hd at any hostel ever !
