The owner is very friendly and helpful. The environment is warm and comfortable and feels more like home than a hostel. Everything is spotless.
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.

Staff were very friendly and welcoming - took us to the airport rather than us needing to organise a taxi
I arrived like a zombie after several delayed and cancelled flights, and was made to feel at home straight away. Gabriel couldn't do enough to help me get organised for the next leg of my trip, which was a huge relief. It was a great stopover in San Jose thanks to Nomadas - an airy and relaxed home from home :-)

Comfortable dorm beds.....lovely lounge area, staff fine.....decent downtown location.....however....
This is just a functional place to stop as it's close to the bus station and if you have to spend the night it will do the trick. It's a big place and clean.

Beds and pillows were comfy and the location was really good. The guy was pretty helpful although in the morning when I was leaving he was busy making breakfast so was not as available.
The hostel is beautiful, and David was amazing! Went totally out of his way to make our stay a pleasant one. Breakfast was also great, had a lovely nights sleep.

Third time here. Colonial house. Interesting. Fun. Friendly. Relaxed. Slightly eccentric, inc the plumbing, but all works. I've always taken a private room with bathroom - all absolutely adequate. Nice mix of guests, mixed nationalities, some Costa Rican, travellers & others. 10 minute walk to centre of San Jose. Owner extremely friendly, helpful, English speaking if that matters. Pleasant staff. Bonus this time is a small attached restaurant, 'The Corner'. It's a separate business from the Hostal, but in the same building, & works with the hostal. Very simple menu but I swear the empanadas (baked in pizza dough) with salsas, & the pizzas, are amongst the best & freshest I've ever eaten. Long may that continue. Good traveller's choice.
Very nice hostel which has a really good connection if you plan to head to Nicaragua or other further destinations in the country - it is really close to the bus terminals. The dorm beds are comfy and the big locker is definitely a thing you cannot find everywhere. The house itself is very old and build in colonial style - really nice interieur as well. The owner has been super friendly and cared a lot.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, they made me really feel welcome and at home. The hostel's rabbit was also super cute. I also liked the culture and nightlife tipps. I would always come back when I'm staying in San Jose.
Brian,the owner is always on site and has an excellent staff. Karen was so helpful with directions and suggestions for destinations. Gaby was helpful getting us to our next city with phone calls to obtain information. The pancake, fruit and coffee breakfast was delicious. The entire staff was so friendly, I cannot wait for two weeks to return to renew friendships and tell of our adventures, they are really interested in you as a person and your safety is of great concern. The neighborhood is very safe, and your personal belongings are safe in the hostel. We are two women in our 60's who don't need the expense or frills of a hotel. The younger crowd was very respectful and rules were without question.

We chose Costa Rica Guesthouse because the tour guide we were meeting next day recommended it, AND because they offered secure auto storage while we went away for a night. I was sure I had asked for 2 beds but we were given a room with one double, apparently the only one available, and told there were none with 2, although the website says there were. Our checked bage didn't arrive in Liberia with us, so we left this address to have them brought to. They weren't there when we returned, and Carlos went far above and beyond to help us track them down. He made many phone calls and helped keep us in the right direction to recover them, staying calming and positive the whole time. He was terrific!!
At low cost we had a very clean, large room with private bathroom and everything you need in it! Good WiFi, a Tourist Desk with good information, breakfast included and the whole day coffee and tea free. What do you want more?

The tourman Justin is really nice. The tours we did were sooo cool. Thanks a lot for all your help, Justin!!!!
I had such a great time at Costa Rica Backpackers!! The staff there are SUPER friendly/accomodating and were willing to help me with everything that I needed. It is a true backpackers hostel, so its really easy to meet fellow travelers here. I would describe the overall atmosphere as relaxed, friendly, and social. They have a great hangout area around the pool with lots of hammocks and lounge areas for relaxing/taking a mid-day siesta. The property is also beautiful with lots of tropical plants and even a restaurant and bar on site. (The bar runs great Happy Hour prices from 4-7!) The restaurant had super tasty local dishes and others like curry and burgers and pasta. My favorite was the thai green curry.... seriously Yummmmy! The dorm room I stayed in was only $12/night. The room was really clean and the bed was comfortable. No complaints about the rooms. The bathrooms/showers were also super clean and the shower had hot water! Actually the whole place looked really clean. It seemed like there were cleaning staff working around the clock to keep everything looking great. Overall, I had a GREAT stay at Cost Rica Backpackers. The room was good and affordable, staff were excellent, and I met a bunch of really cool people there. I will defintiely stay there again the next time I am in San Jose!
