Description - Hostel

First backpackers hostel in Costa Rica. We are independent and locally run, and as such you will get the personal touch not found in big chain hostels. We opened our doors in 2001, and have been the number one meeting spot in the San Jose ever since. A real slice of paradise in the heart of San Jose. Meet travelers from all over the world. We are located in Downtown San Jose near bus terminals and nightlife's activities.

D all day long. Huge beautiful gardens makes this place like 'a little slice of paradise ' in the busy San Jose...
