        A cozy hotel in the center of San Jose. The room was huge and clean and we love it. The internet signal was poor, we hope they'd improve it. There are too few parking space for those who rent a car.

        Our Downtown Casa!”
        The photo is a little deceiving considering it is missing the lamp post, utility box etc outside the building on the corner. It is also on a very busy intersection in the downtown core. (Something to be aware about if booking for a family). Our stay there, was very pleasant. For being a busy hostel it was relatively quiet, all patrons were respectful of the "quiet zone" signs near and around the dormitory. We stayed in a family dormitory that could hold 6 people. There was bedding, towels and private bathroom with 2 toilets and 2 showers. Like on all busy main roads in Costa Rica & single-paned windows accommodations one could hear the traffic as if it was right next to you. (give it a day or two and one becomes acclimatized to the sounds) However, the traffic seems to come to a halt around 9:30 p.m. and does not start up again until sunrise. The staff both at the front desk and serving food in the kitchen were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was included with your stay and we were definitely fed well. Allowed us to start off the day just right. This is a good place to drop your bags and tour the city. There is public transportation right outside the front door and you are not very far from many attractions. As with every large city one travels to there are also many 'colourful' folk that live and transverse the downtown core, always be aware of your surroundings and you will have a great holiday!

        Location, cleanliness
        Stayed only one night enroute to Nicaragua. We arrived late and checked in relatively quickly (although there was an issue with the room key that needed attending to). Great location very close to bus stations servicing north and south routes, many within walking distance. Breakfast (included in the price we paid) was very poor, probably the worst we've had in nearly six months of travel. Good for a night, however a little overpriced so for that reason I wouldn't stay again

        Great location, not great hotel”
        Location, location, location
        Firstly, the hotel failed to pick-up my family and I from the airport...The two young women at the front desk had the transfer order,While the room was simple, I have never encountered a room so bare. Two paintings of jaguars. Ok, the worst part was the stink of sewage coming from the bathroom, and the cockroaches, lack of hot water, water pressure, and since this was Christmas, Christmas day was a lack-luster breakfast prepared by an unenthusiastic guy...plates with greasy thumbprints... So, while it's a hostel, and the room is for more than 2 people...my son my partner and I were not totally uncomfortable, but whew the smell..oh and no aircon...a ceiling fan that I thought was going to come down in the middle of the night and kill at least one of us. (pricing is way off!) and the hotel...clean your bathrooms in the family rooms, room 202 to be specific...also, change the lightbulbs so you can see whats going on in the rooms, so very dark. Wifi was ok, very basic, but could be cleaner, alot cleaner, and the staff should be careful to understand that foreigners speak spanish too!
