Stayed for 2 nights after landing in San Jose Airport from Australia, so used the day to rest and plan the trip. Staff were very helpful. Safe neighbourhood in Escazu (out of the city). We weren't interested in going into San Jose city, so the location was good for us. Easy to arrange transport to and from the airport and bus stops. Hostel had great facilities. Pool table, table tennis, bar and kitchen area, swimming pool and lounging areas. Breakfast is really good as well.

Large hostel with a nice feel to it. Good facilities for cooking and some board games to play to pass the time of you just want to chill. Pool table, table tennis and table football too. Stayed for one night in private room. When we opened the doors it smelt really bad of damp. Left the doors open for a while but just couldn’t shift it. Room was massive though and also the bed! WiFi was good in the hostel but signal was not great from the room. Used the roof terrace - We went up at 3pm when we checked in and there was broken glass over the floor and plates with half eaten food there. Went up again at 10am the next day and the mess was still there. Having said that the general state of the place was actually clean and tidy it just seemed to be the roof terrace that wasn’t! Escazú itself is about 20 mins drive from the city so not too much to do near to the hostel itself.

Hubby and I were at Fauna two nights. The owner Jeanine possessed an all too rare combination of professionalism and genuine warmth. The front desk staff, Jamie and Randal, were well informed and gave the kindness needed for weary, slightly cranky travelers (OK just me, not the husband:-). Accommodations were lovely and QUIET. The rooftop view was phenomenal. Highly recommend this lux hostel with budget prices.
