Liked: Comfortable couches in the lounge room. Great if you just want to lay around reading. Staff helpful with bus times ect.

Disliked: Staff always speaking very loudly, playing music loudly 8am-10pm. You have to ring the bell to get in and out so you feel like you are inconviencing them.

Liked: Security

Disliked: The kitchen will be locked from 9:30pm til 8am, meaning everything you put in the fridge you wont be able to get. The free water is also in the kitchen and wont be available during the entire evening. The door is always locked, which is a good thing for security. But everytime you leave they have to unlock and make you feel very uneasy because you 'disturbed' them. This by the way is the overall feeling you have in that hostel. Everything has to be under their control, you can not hang your clothes outside where you want or they get really mad if you use the light switch without asking...?! Wtf, why do you run a hostel if you don't want anyone around you?

Liked: Clean, nice staff. It is our of the way for seeing anything in san jose but it is nice if you are just spending one night and don't want to be at a party hostel.

Disliked: exterior door is always locked and you need the lady to come unlock it. This is really annoying if she is not around. You literally cannot get out. They should change the type of lock so you can exit the property without needing a key.

Liked: Paula, the owner, is incredibly helpful. She's very knowledgeable not only about San Jose but a number of the other attractions around Costa Rica. Additionally, she's responsive via email and is eager to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. Furthermore, bfast and dinner (pizza) are both good, with bfast being included and different everyday.

Disliked: Overall, very solid value for accommodations and amenities. Bathrooms can use a little work and towels could use an upgrade.

Liked: The owners were very helpful - I had had my passport stolen along with other goods and they helped me to find the embassy, get passport photos etc. Was really appreciated. The rooms are very nice and clean, bathrooms also clean. The homemade pizzas are really great, and the bar/eating/outside areas are lovely touches.

Disliked: The location was a little far from the centre, but easy enough to travel around.

Liked: This hostel is very pleasant and warm. Well taken care of. Stylish and simple. The owners are kind and are available to help out prior to booking, and during your stay. I would recommend this property to anyone. They speak several languages well, and most nights, make really yummy pizza. Great location -- it's safe. Very well taken care of. Easy to get to buses and taxis. Make sure that you catch a proper red taxi to get here, or use the shuttle.

Disliked: A little ways away from San Jose center, but the access to it is fine.
