I was wondering around San Jose and night without being able to find a place to sleep since they were all full. When I arrived and explained my situation the staff member offered me to stay on the couch, it was the most comfortable place I sleep at during my whole trip. The place is nice and in a good...

This place ROCKS. Stayed here for three nights and had a great time with the people and staff there. They are very helpful and friendly. The dorm room is very safe and clean, did not worry about getting things stolen. Though it is one shared bathroom I never had to wait for it. The kitchen is very user friendly and...

Casa Del Parque is located in a really nice area of San Jose. The surrounding area feels really safe, and is across from a really cool park. The private room we stayed in was massive and really spacious. The only problem was we couldn't close the windows (broken) which allowed some mosquitos to enter at night. Sharing the kitchen was...

I have stayed at a few places in San Jose and this by far beats them all.

I love this place, they let me bring my dog and treat her like family. The private rooms are amazing and the dorm isn't bad either. The only shortcoming is the one shower in the dorm. Otherwise it's in an awesome central location. Some good vegan restaurants nearby, kitchen, 2 patios, nice parks, movie theater, and bars. There is a...

My husband and I stayed here for just one night in a large dorm room. It was one of the best night sleeps we had received. It was clean, stunning building, safe and secure, and staff very friendly. One of the best hostels we have stayed in!

We decided to stay here after a week of traveling around Costa Rica, because we were drawn by the good reviews. For $45.00 USD we were promised a "Deluxe" room with a private bathroom. We figured this was a good deal, as the "room with a private bath" shown in the pictures looked cozy and welcoming. When we arrived at...

Of all the hostels in San Jose, this is by far the best accommodation for any traveler on a budget. Comfortable, impeccably clean, beautiful, tranquil, pleasant & inviting.
