Kaps place gave us an amazing service, we were 19 people coming from Colombia, Las Vegas and Miami for my brother’s wedding ... since the first moment Karolina was very helpful and took the moment to understand our needs as guests. The place is full of color and details. All the staff was amazing to us, breakfast was delicious with variety and fresh made food. We even had the opportunity to do a little birthday celebration for our uncle. Kaps place felt like Home .. a cozy and relaxing place to be. Thank you Karolina and Kaps place’s staff for the great times! Thanks to you Costa Rica became a wonderful experience. Pura vida

Just completed my fourth visit at Hotel Kaps Place and it just keeps improving. Karolina and her staff continue to exceed expectations. The freshly made breakfast has lots of options. The new chef, Wendy, is fantastic with her homemade creations. In addition to breakfast, we enjoyed some of her soup for lunch and a delicious snack tray with mouth-watering homemade bread for a meeting. The rooms are exceptionally clean and all have a fun and funky decor. Kaps place is a labor or love for the owner and her staff....and guests can feel that. I co-lead a team of 30 missionaries that visit in January and we will again stay in 2018. I can rest easy knowing that they will all be cared for. At this point we consider Karolina and staff to be part of our team as they do so many things to ease the logistics for our trip. They are always willing to help us problem solve. I simply cannot imagine a better value than Kapsplace and can't wait to get back!

Room Tip: Quietest rooms are probably in the annex

Everything about Kaps Place is warm and inviting. We feel at home here. The staff is AHHMAZING, the restaurant is so good. Can't imagine staying anywhere else! Each room delightful with a personality of its own.

Kaps Place was welcoming since the moment I arrived and provided me with one of my first impressions of Costa Rica. Front desk staff, owner, and cleaning & kitchen staff were all courteous, friendly, and professional. You can tell the owner of this establishment takes pride in keeping it clean and strives to provide guests with a comfortable experience. She and front desk staff recognize you and call you by your name and ask if everything is going well. The included breakfast of typical Costa Rican food is filling and tastes great. Kaps Café, the restaurant next door, serves a variety of great meals at a reasonable price. I stayed here 3 nights before moving on to another hostel to meet up with a G Adventures group. I'm glad I chose Kaps Place out of all the hotels and hostels in San Jose and fully recommend it to everyone. It provides a calm and relaxing atmosphere in the city. Pura Vida!

Extra info: Walls and doors are thin, but there are quiet hours after a certain time and there isn't street noise. The neighborhood is safe. Within walking distance of San Jose main attractions.

We only stayed one night at Kap's to be closer to the airport on our last day... that didn't end up being the case, due to traffic it still took well over an hour to get there but we really enjoyed our stay otherwise. We were able to book two small rooms with a bathroom all in a separate hall. I wish we had a little more time to use the game room and relax in some of the common areas, there were many. The breakfast was only okay and be prepared the parking area is a few blocks away.
