Casa Hilda
Ranked #76 of 105 San Jose Metro B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 December 2012

My friend and I have read about this pension on Lonely Planet and since it was really close to the Caribe Terminal, we asked the taxi driver to drop us at this place. I have to admit that we didn't have any reservation, but when we arrived, the owner was mad about the taxi blocking the front entrance, he informed us that the price was 10$ more than what was written in my travelling book, there was a sign on the wall indicating that if we have to go out, we had to be back before 11pm, but the owner told us that we had to be back before 10pm... since we arrived around 9h30pm and we haven't eaten yet, I tried to negociate... At the end, the owner told 2 exhausted girls, with big backpacks who were trying very hard to speak spanish, that he didn't want to do nothing with us and showed us the door...

That was our experience to casa Hilda...

This is a good, cheap, and comfortable alternative in Barrio Amon to the many shady hostels in San José (some of which are notorious). The owners are friendly, and there are many great restaurants within walking distance. Most bus terminals are easily accessed from the hotel. We use this hotel as a base from to and from San José.

The main reason I picked this is because I needed to take morning bus at Bus station caribenos. Guidebooks mentioned this as one of few chances to meet Costa Rican family so I thought it would be more personal than hotel. It wasn't. Just our keys, explanation of showers and request to be quiet since other guests were asleep already and they were gone. No help down stairs with luggage or small talk about trip so felt strange. Room itself was nice size with warm shower but no breakfast in morning. Would probably return if had morning bus again but overall not nicest place to start trip.
