My boyfriend and I stayed our first night in San Jose at Mi Casa Hostel. It was easy to find (just across from the staduim and park), the staff spoke great English and were very helpful with directions and attraction reccomendations. The room was large, clean and comfortable, but our window faced the street so at night we were subjected...

My wife and i had to stay one night in San Jose because of an early flight and we got recommendations about this place. An ok price in a safe neighborhood. The place is close to the airport so that's a bonus for some people. Problem is, room was not clean at all, I think they just didn't clean it.

I have stayed at Mi Casa a couple of times now, and you just can't beat the price, cleanliness and friendly service. It is the perfect place to stay if you are on a budget and prefer to spend your money on activities/ adventures instead of a luxe hotel room. The staff are courteous, the business is obviously organized... the...

This is a very homey hostel really close to a large, beautiful park (La Sabana, I think). Small kitchen, but it´s got a great yard in the middle where you can lounge in the sun or just rest in the shade. Stores for buying food are within walking distance, and there´s a great little living room area for chilling out....

I've stayed here several times over the last couple of years and had a great experience each and every time. Now that the whole place has been remodeled, it's even better. Whether you're staying in San Jose for one day or an extended stay, this is a great option. You're bound to meet good people and I can't say enough...

“The rooms on the second floor balcony are nice. I'd try avoiding the rooms closest to the kitchen for travelers talking late at night or getting up for breakfast early in the morning if you want more sleep.”
