In fact, you can find rooms that vary from hostel beds with a shared bathroom to a furnished apartment. Of course the rate will vary according to the type of room. The hotel is sort of rambling and...

Prior to arriving at Kaps we had a fabulous 3 weeks touring Central America, staying in some great accommodation as organised by our tour group. Such had been the quality of the accommodation throughout the tour we didn't hesitate to book an additional night at Kaps (without analysing reviews) after the tour had ended. When booking the additional night post...

I initially stay at Kaps Place on the 5th when I arrived in San Jose. I was tired and the room they provide was excellent. I did not interact much because I had to head out the next day. However, I did come back on the 12th. That evening I grabbed a bite at the Cafe, and talked with the...

Lovely little hotel with nice communal area and free tea and coffee. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. Rooms are clean enough although slightly see through bathroom door is a bit strange! The only criticism I have is they wanted to charge $20 to get a small load of laundry done, at which point I decided to go elsewhere. Good...

I was delighted with my stay here. $45/night was a great price to pay for a hot shower, a cozy bed (not just comfortable- actually cozy), delicious and healthy complementary breakfast, and very kind and helpful service.
