    Wonderful hostel! The place is designed in a really cool way and the staff was so helpful (even when we realized we had booked the wrong date!) They also gave excellent dinner recommendations and there is an awesome bakery two blocks away. Short walk to a bunch of places to eat nearby. The dorms were spotlessly clean, as were the bathrooms. Could not recommend this place more! Would love to return someday (post corona virus crisis!)

    I loved this hostel! It was super clean, and had great interior (and exterior). It’s in a safe neighbourhood with many restaurants, cafes, laundry, etc around it. For solo female travellers, it is a great choice. The female dorm has awesome bunks with curtains, comfy beds, lights, etc. there is also an en-suite bathroom with hot water and water pressure! Breakfast is filling and the staff are super helpful! They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and easy!

    Nativus was our first stop on our three week trip to Costa Rica. Although it was a random choice, it proved to be an excellent one. The hostel is spotlessly clean and in a great location. The staff were very friendly, in particular Estaban. He went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us to organise our trip. We look forward to staying again on our return to San Jose on the last night of our trip.

    Very cute hostel with well designed and thoughtful dorms (curtains on the lower bunks and individual lights and shelves at each bed a nice plus!). Our room was super clean and nice. The only trouble was actually checking in...we had to holler from the outside to the desk to get someone's attention. Not a problem though, really. Someone was with is quickly and showed us to parking and our room. Oh, parking is extra and is just a short distance from the hostel.

    Perfectly located for the Ticabus. Walkable into the center for shopping and restaurants. Really beautiful interior. The beds have good privacy. Met some lovely people there. Staff were very knowledgeable about the area.

    Loved our stay here! The staff were awesome and super helpful in giving tips of places to visit or eat at. The lockers were too small to be able to put your bags in but you could at least lock up valuables. Location wasn’t bad, I didn’t love walking around once it was dark though because some streets surrounding it weren’t well lit. Also if you have a car rental, parking was kind of a beast and be prepared to pay. Overall, would stay here again though!

    I went during a bit of a lul, had a 4 room to myself. Few guests around most seemed to be busy about in San Jose. Great place to chill and get some solidarity. Anna and Steven are very nice. 👌 Great to come grab a room with a group and make your home base here.

    A simple but friendly place. Recommended. Some distance from downtown, but it is easy enough to go take a bus or taxi.
