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.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, delicious pancakes, fresh fruit and coffee for breakfast :)

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!

Brilliant hostel, Gabriel and Magdelena are wonderful hosts. Felt so at home here, in a very nice area of San Jose. Will be coming back soon.
Gabriel and Magdalena were the most lovely people! Always happy to help, offer advice, or just have a conversation. The rooms were cool, clean and comfortable and the bathrooms were clean too. The kitchen facilities were fine and the added security of the gate out the front was comforting.

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.

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.

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.
I got a really great room with a big bathroom. Just loved it! The staff was extremely friendly as well! Highly recommended.

It was a very fun place to stay, with a community atmosphere and a great staff. It's the perfect place to begin your journey through Costa Rica.
