Mi Casa Hostel is terrific; convenient to downtown, in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to several restaurants, delightful staff who are extremely helpful, very clean rooms, coffee and pancake breakfast included (save a bit for the 4 resident small turtles that will greet you at the breakfast table), internet access. About a buck or two for a bus to/from the...

Mi Casa hostel is your average hotel with above average customer service. The rooms are basic and kept clean. The hostel offers a community kitchen and lounge area which are also always clean and taken care of. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, often recognizing their patrons by name and going out of their way to accommodate them. This...

This place is a hidden gem. It's in a good location right next to the Sabana. The rooms and pancake breakfast are basic, but what makes this place worth the stay are the warm and friendly people that work there. My wife and I stayed here numerous times during our 2 years in Costa Rica and I cannot recommend this...

Ran into this Hostel my accident, but was a pleasant accident. They had a huge room for the two of us with private bathroom and hot water! was so good to take a hot shower, because apparently in C.R it is hard to get hot water. They gave us parking behind the gate and we felt secure. The breakfast was...

This hostel is in the perfect location, its off the main roads that lead into the center of San Jose so its a quiet place to stay yet its close enough to the center to get busses for further travel or to get to the airport (we paid $20 for an airport run in a taxi). The staff are helpful...

I stayed here for one night before heading out of Costa Rica the next morning. Because I flew out of San Jose International, it was pretty convenient. The taxi was under 30 dollars, and the staff were really helpful about getting me to the airport. The staff was very lovely in general. They are clear about giving directions and making...

Mi Casa Hostel [reservations@micasahostel.com] is a great bargain. I stayed a week in May 2013 and will go back for a longer stay in a few months. Located in a mostly residential neighborhood just north of Sabana Park, it has clean rooms, a restful garden and great staff. The double rooms with bath come in two slightly different sizes. The...

My go to hostel in San Jose for it's convenient location, good prices, and friendly staff. Always clean and comfortable, the people who work there really make you feel at home! They are updating some of the rooms now and the new mattresses are GREAT.

We were there for only one night. But we enjoyed the modern room and the nice bathroom. They have a nice, small garden and breakfast is included. We missed a place to go to in the evening because there is no nice bar around. The supermarket is close by. They have a community kitchen.

“Opt for a private room with a bathroom. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Overall good stay though!”

“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.”
