I can't say anything about this hostel but I LOVE IT! Everything is perfect! The rooms are so clean and well-maintained. Bar, kitchen, and the lounge is super huge. There is a free parking lot and it's close to a supermarket! Above all, it's so cheap I wanted to pay more for what I got. I love Fauna Hostel and I will definitely stay here again!

I’d definitely recommend this hostel to anyone I know! The atmosphere is really cool and there’s so much to do. Many different games and activities, views are beautiful and their food and drinks are great. The rooms are perfect size & some have really cool art on the way. Great location as well, and don’t forget to check out the rooftop views!!

We loved our stay at Fauna! We booked their airport shuttle and while it was expensive the driver alone made it worth the trip. Flori, I think is her name, set the tone for our trip by helping us with recommendations and tips for being in Costa Rica. The staff at the hostel is also great, everyone who works reception was awesome. They printed a map for us and explained how to get around in San Jose and also recommended some good bars. The central part of San Jose is like 15-20 minutes away by Uber. Anyway, the bar at the hostel is also nice and the bartenders were friendly. Would definitely stay again! The shared rooms were huge and you get to pick any bed. The bathrooms were fine for a hostel. Thank you a great stay, fauna!

Fauna is my go-to place to stay in Escazu. We stay in the private rooms. Great value for the money, super clean! Excellent customer service. Love the staff. Great location. Just don't plan on swimming in the pool -- it's a little disappointing. Love the art all over by local artists! My third stay and I'll definitely be back.

I spent 4 nights at Fauna and really enjoyed my time there. The room was spotless, the staff particularly Claudia and Randall worked really hard to help set me up with a SIM and various challenges I had as a friends flight in was cancelled so onward travel was hindered. As with all travel we learn to let go of plans and control. The staff helped make everything ok again. I met great travelers in the bar and was inspired by the stories I heard. Clean, comfortable, great rooftop for people watching and yoga. Highly recommended
