That makes us special is that we are a well organized, relaxed hostel in a cool and safe area. It is a small and personal hostel - but professionally managed. We offer a lot of extras for our guests without great expense, all at very affordable prices, besides Hostel Van Gogh is close to everything!, Just 15 min walk from the city center and surrounded by cultural venues and excellent nightlifeHostel Van Gogh... A place to be!!..

Stayed here on my way into the country and before my flight out. David the owner was super helpful with tons of information and just great to chat with in general. The location is fantastic as you can walk anywhere downtown San Jose within a few minutes. Safe area, the park

I absolutely love the place and will be staying there each time I visit San Jose. The owner, David, is a walking encyclopedia of useful information. He gave me tips on where to eat, which excursions were truly worth the money, and went the extra mile to secure a last-minute trip

My husband and I stayed one night here after arriving in san jose. The owner was very friendly and happy to show us a room and let us have a look around before we decided to stay. The whole hostel is very clean and he had mopped the back lounge area the next morning. There are

My flight left SJ at 6am the next morning so I didn't feel like getting a hotel was worth it. I actually considered just hanging out in a bar until 2 am and then going to the airport but decided it was probably a better idea to take it easy and get a little sleep since airplane

Frightening! Horrendous experience. Staff member pulled a taser and a fake gun on me and my girlfriend after we used the toilet but decided not to stay there based on his attitude. He threatened us with the taster, took money from us and chased us down the stairs! Avoid at all

I think there should be taxis, since the airport has it's own airport-taxis (they are orange instead of red). It costs around 28$

There's a bus that goes to San Jose downtown. It's safe and easy. It goes from the International airport to downtown in around 30 min (but depends on the traffic). The bus station, the last stop, is a few blocks walking from the hostel. I did during the day and took me no more than 20 min. The only point is that these blocks on downtown is quite busy during the day but may seem a bit dodgy at night. If so just take a cab from the bus station to the hostel.
