Great comfortable hostel in it almost feels like a hotel. Uses the pod system so you have your own personal space. It also has nice bathrooms and storage lockers. Great for extended stay in San Jose.....the problem is there is little to do in the city and this place is located pretty far from both the bus stations and airports. While Escazu is pretty high end and safe, the location can be inconvenient for traditional backpackers. The nonrefundable rates are also a hassle if plans change. Value For Money: ​5/5 ​Security: ​5/5 ​ Location: ​1/5 ​ Facilities: ​4/5 Staff: ​4/5 Cleanliness: ​5/5

I had a great day. The staff was very friendly. The hostel is very clean and organized. It was close to lots of small restaurants and convenience stores. The internet connectivity was great which was awesome because I was doing some work while I was there.

I stayed here with my family of four on the tail end of a backpacking trip through Panama and Costa Rica. This is the nicest hostel we have ever stayed in! When we walked in, I had to check my receipt to make sure that I hadn't misread the price. This hostel is absolutely gorgeous! We played pool and cards and enjoyed a delicious breakfast that was included the next morning. Staff were friendly and helpful. This place seems too good to be true, but it is the real deal. So very happy we found this place!

Found the perfect place in Escazu, Costa Rica. Fresh groceries just down the block, a rooftop view and hang out to see the San Jose lights, easy Uber access and the price is so right. I don't want to tell you how much, it wouldn't be fair, But I had the king bed with tiled shower/toilet, private room for under 30.00 USD! Breakfast very Tico, but requests were honored. Bring your own groceries and prepare the feast. Also a small bar for entertainment. Visit travelers from all over the world, The repurposed grand hotel into a travelers delight.

What was once a boutique hotel has been transformed into a one of a kind luxury hostel. I have been to dozens of hostels over the years, and Fauna Hostel stands alone as the most fantastic, elaborate hostel I have experienced. There are so many good things going for this place that it is difficult to quickly list them all. First of all, the people who run the place are amazing. They are so friendly, welcoming and helpful and do their jobs so well and professionally, making sure that everyone's stay here is enjoyable. The facilities here are second to none. Where do I start? The building itself is a beautiful Spanish style complex which is covered in an array of art in many forms (there is an in house artist who has a small studio on the roof). Around the gorgeous little pool,
