I stayed at another hostel in san jose when I first arrived (based on an outdated lonely planet guide) and moved to this place based on trip advisor reviews, and it was a great move! The staff here are super friendly and helpful, nothing seems like a hassle. First hostel during my 2 months in central america where my breakfast of toast, coffee and fruit was bought to me at the kitchen table and then my dishes taken care of!
The hostel is new, super clean, roomy, bright and homely. Kitchen fully stocked.
Great location, 10 min walk from downtown.
I have used the hostel as my base while I have done multi day trips around Costa Rica. Highly recommended!
