Hubby and I were at Fauna two nights. The owner Jeanine possessed an all too rare combination of professionalism and genuine warmth. The front desk staff, Jamie and Randal, were well informed and gave the kindness needed for weary, slightly cranky travelers (OK just me, not the husband:-).
Accommodations were lovely and QUIET. The rooftop view was phenomenal. Highly recommend this lux hostel with budget prices.

If you want a nice place to chill out and have a relaxing time in San Jose this is the place to stay!! Jeanine (the owner) is wonderful and goes above and beyond to make sure that all your needs are taken care of. 24 hour reception & an amazing staff really make this a great place to stay!

Room tip: Geta private room...they have California King beds in it!!

I was a solos traveler that wanted inexpensive but private accomodations. Fauna was perfect for my needs. The staff is professional, helpful and friendly. My room was clean and simple not any extra tables or chairs which is fine since they have a spacious dining communal area where you can sit, eat, watch tv or do work with complete freedom.
The neighborhood is relatively safe to easily walk to the close grocery store, half a block away. Uber is convenient and the bus to San Jose is just up the street that gets you to the cathedral area in 20 minutes for about 80 cents.
I took a tour to Poas Volcano and the Doka coffee plantation along with stops in Grecia, the metal cathedral, and Sarchi, a regional furniture manufacturing town. Everything was amazing, just know that CR roads are an adventure and not for weak stomachs.
Back at the hostel, the environment is refreshing and open air courtyard ambience, never encountered mosquitoes or any other bugs.
Overall a great five day stay! ❤

Room tip: rooms are sound proofed very well despite the open air courtyard environment

We stayed in the dorms with the pods and they were so nice! Comfiest beds I had the entire time we were in Costa Rica. I loved getting to shut the blinds at night and have privacy... that is hard to find when one is hostel hopping! The staff was so kind, accommodating, and welcoming. Great atmosphere. I would stay here again!
