The rooms are spacious and clean. There are common areas on almost all floors and foosball, pool table, TV room on the 5th floor for entertainment. There is also a travel desk on the 5th floor. Though i didn't use their services, would imagine they arrange tours etc. Wifi connectivity was good throughout the hostel. Staff were quite friendly and helpful. They managed to get me a super fast laundry service. Location wise, central avenue is about 10-15 minutes walking distance. Close to TICA bus station.

An unbelievable stay at Hostel Del Paseo, some of the most accommodating staff I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and the rooms are 10/10. Pool table, ping pong and more on the top floor makes it feel like a game room and the facilities are some of the cleanest I’ve used. Highly recommend Hostel Del Paseo! Easily the Best Hostel I’ve ever stayed at.

I stayed here for 6 days during my trip to San Jose. They offered me a bed in the air-conditioned room and it was one of the most comfortable that I had in my 6 months of continuous travel. It felt more like a hotel than a hostel. The toilet is always clean, and they also provided a clean towel. It is also centrally located, just 10-15mins walk to Central Park, and it is also surrounded by lots of convenience stores. Special kudos to Claudia the receptionist. She has been awesome and provided me with all the information I needed on my tour in SJ.
