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.

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 :-)
Fantastic place to stay in San Jose. Super safe area and easy walk into central area. Really quite residential area, no street noise, close to shops. Staying here changed my opinion of San Jose for the positive. Run by a husband and wife who are so friendly and knowledgable and just hungout and chatted. The most hospitable backpackers I have stayed at!

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.
Location is close to many places to eat, ATMs, and bus terminals. Staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. Whole place is clean and modern with lots of natural light in the common area. Breakfast included is basic, but a nice added extra. Shower has real hot water!

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.

The room we stayed in was very large. It was very private. We felt very safe and secure.
We stayed here after arriving from the UK and wanted to have a nap before hitting the city. Unfortunately it was not a great place to sleep in the day as the noise of the local train was alarmingly loud, not to mention the man that suddenly appeared measuring our bedroom window! I guess it's our own fault for sleeping during the day! Our room was decorated beautifully and we were amazed at the size of the bathroom, it was a lovely layout and we were very happy with it. Having said this, opening the blinds meant that the street had a great view of us which felt very public so we were forced to leave the blinds shut most of the time which was a shame. In terms of location, we struggled to find reasonably priced restaurants to eat in at night which left us wandering the dark streets in search of one, although it seems there are more options during the day. The staff were very friendly and even made us breakfast earlier than they were supposed to. They were always there to answer our queries and made us feel very welcome.

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.

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.
Very helpful and friendly staff made you feel at home right away. Also if you need a relaxin partner there's the house bunny :) cozy and chill atmosphere plus pancakes with pictures on them for breakfast, yum

Beautiful old house, conveniently located. Helpful staff gave us good advice on transportation etc. Beside wifi, there was also a computer that could be used.
