Reviewed 9 August 2016

Absolutely dire! A rather unpleasant front of house greeting from the much mentioned bruiser! Interior design is modelled on a multi layer prison with metal gantries and rooms that are literally like "cells"? The most Costalot in Costa Rica.Noise carries through the entire place. Bypass it in the same way the Staff have had their customer care skills bypassed!

Room Tip: Use very dark glasses to find a good room here!

Watch your credit cards and belongings these folks are about as slick as a whorehouse as they come. Made reservations, showed up they denied having the reservation and then they charged my CC for the night. In addition they are rude, and the hotel itself is a dump,

I ended up staying at Pangea one night in July, and then one night in August and both were quite pleasant experiences.

The rooms are nice and spacious, we weren't crammed in like sardines. The rooms also have fans which work very well and keep the room cool, although they may be a bit loud for some, I like the white noise when sleeping. The food from the bar was pretty good! Didn't find it overly expensive as you can't compare it to cheaper street food. They have vegetarian/vegan options as well (burritos, fajitas, etc). Overall it was quite an enjoyable stay at Hostel Pangea!

Staff wasn't the best. They don't go the extra mile whatsoever but that wasn't a huge deal.
The bar was a nice place to chill with other backpackers. The pool was a perk too! The rooms are average, about what you'd expect for a hostel.

Good common areas for backpackers to meet and hang out.

After being picked up at the airport we enjoyed a warm welcoming at Hostel Pangea. We like the concept with the pool, bar, terrace,.. But the drinks and food were overpriced being a youth/budget hostel. We went out to see San José which wasn't a great city to visit. Anyway the dorms were okay and good to stay a night over when flying into or out San José. (Showers were great!)
