“An ok place to spend 1 night”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

My wife and i had to stay one night in San Jose because of an early flight and we got recommendations about this place. An ok price in a safe neighborhood. The place is close to the airport so that's a bonus for some people.
Problem is, room was not clean at all, I think they just didn't clean it.

Ok we live in Costa RIca and have stayed here many times over the years......well this last time wil be the last. The room rate was outragous ....the shared bathroom room that we used to stay in for $30 for 3 adults and one child now was $54 for 2 adults and 3 children who were under 10. The signs in the hotel say all children under 10 no charge.......so we questioned the front desk guy and he called the owner who told us that was no longer the case....he charged us $5 per kid...plus $30 for the room. $45 for a room with shared bathroom simple hostel style and really bad matress............if it was cheaper I would be ok with it but not for that price. Also they always made fresh pancakes for you to eat in the kitchen...this time they had some pre made sitting in the oven cold....and said help yourself ...but that there is not enough for all of you???? What is that. NO SERVICE at all. Not even fresh cheap pancakes ....come on...there are many better options now ....too bad...I really like the location but nothing else now.

moved here after Nomadas got booked out and really liked it. It has a nice garden area, a lounge area (with cable TV), pool table and kitchen you can use. rooms (private and dorm) are clean and largish. there's free wi-fi. the included breakfast is just pancakes. location is pretty good - you can easily walk to the Sabana park and the main street of the city. some staff were really helpful, others were completely lethargic and almost reluctant to even acknowledge your presence, let alone answer a question or help, but overall a good value place to stay

I have stayed at Mi Casa a couple of times now, and you just can't beat the price, cleanliness and friendly service. It is the perfect place to stay if you are on a budget and prefer to spend your money on activities/ adventures instead of a luxe hotel room.
The staff are courteous, the business is obviously organized... the owners have clearly thought of 'the little things' and overall it appears that they care about your comfort and experience.

Room Tip: I stayed upstairs in a double room with a private bathroom, it was fairly quiet and a good night'...

This is a very homey hostel really close to a large, beautiful park (La Sabana, I think). Small kitchen, but it´s got a great yard in the middle where you can lounge in the sun or just rest in the shade. Stores for buying food are within walking distance, and there´s a great little living room area for chilling out. A good alternative if you want a peaceful stay in a nice, safe neighborhood.

I've stayed here several times over the last couple of years and had a great experience each and every time. Now that the whole place has been remodeled, it's even better. Whether you're staying in San Jose for one day or an extended stay, this is a great option. You're bound to meet good people and I can't say enough good things about the staff. *I also stayed at their other location in Guanacaste. These guys are doing it right!

Room Tip: Call early. This place fills up fast!
