If your looking for a relaxing stay along with meeting some other awesome travelers come here. The building is very beautiful and in a great location to the main street (avenida central) and an awesome bar scene is on the street right behind it. Casa del Parque is clean and peaceful and also has an amazing garden patio area to kick back with fellow travelers. Roger is very helpful with information about San Jose and also helped set up water rafting and a tour to tortugero island (must do)! I just told him what i wanted to do and he set it all up. Along with awesome tours this hostel has all the information you need to catch buses or hopper planes to your next destination.
I traveled around central america but returned to San Jose to fly back to the US and stayed here. I had to be at the air port by 4am but the Casa Del Parque has its own taxi driver who picked me up and was very friendly (english is good) and has set rates, no tricks here.
Overall great stay, great staff, great location, and great information!More
