We stayed in Costa Rica Love twice. Once right after our plane came in and again on our way out of the country. Manfred, the owner, is really nice and helpful. He picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the bus stop and airport. The hostel is in a very safe and quiet part of San Jose. Its clean, comfortable and there's good food and company!

Room Tip: Upstairs is better. The walls are all a little thin so the further you can get from the main area th...

Our stay here was quiet and cheap. The owners are super friendly and accommodating. They provide a very affordable ride to and from the airport and several tours in the area. The surrounding neighborhood is in the suburbs, but there are corner stores, restaurants, shops and a large grocery store within 5 minutes walking distance. We didn't get out to do much, but it's not too far from the city center. Try asking for the home cooked typical meals.... THEY ARE AMAZING!

Room Tip: There is privacy for those with private rooms and the deck is very nice.

It's a nice and quiet hostel, in a nice suburb of San José. The distance from the centre of town was the only (minor) inconvenience - but a cheap bus, around 0.50$US, or 300 colones was the solution to that. The owner is helpful, and the shuttle service he offers, while informal, is quick and reliable and mostly cheap; the hostel is run by him and his family, and it's a great place to relax and escape the craziness of the city proper. He also runs some tours - I'd suggest going on them, as they're personalised and good value for money.

Love Hostel was very simple and basic. Beautiful upper deck. Location is pretty far out from San Jose. The guy at reception was very accommodating (at a small cost) to take us into San Jose, and helped us find the Tica Bus station. It's a very quiet hostel.

Managed by a young, friendly costarican owners, it's a great option. The hostel is in Sto Domingo, far from noise of downtown San Josè, in this clean, safe, neighborhood. They provide affordable tours and If you call in advance, they pick you up at airport, cheaper from local taxis.

Definitly a good value! I was just arriving when they offered me to join a little trip to the beach. It was very nice. Beautiful beach, warm water. If you're looking for a cheap and friendly place to stay. That's one of them!

Hostel is located in a quite and safe place in the outskirts of San Jose. People are very friendly and good human beings.Wifi, TV, computers, Laundry facility, super market nearby, everything available. If you wanna go for site seeing or adventure tour, they arrange them at nominal prices.
Overall, cool and nice and safe place to stay in Costa Rica.
