Hostel el Museo
Reviewed 20 August 2010

Hostel El Museo is the place to stay in San Jose! Best thing about it was the fantastic service - the staff was very welcoming and made it a very fun stay. Perfect location and value make this one place you do not want to miss.

This was my first stay in a hostel, so I was unsure of what to expect. The rooms were kept clean & the beds were comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful & friendly, which made my stay very enjoyable. They were quick to offer use of the phones & Internet, as well as advice on where to go out safely for night life. The location was convenient to all in San Jose.
My only one complaint was the lack of hot water for showers.

In terms of value for money this hostel is best we have stayed in. Clean and well maintained, very comfortable beds and a friendly staff. For the price, you cannot find anything better in Costa Rica.

By far the best location, just few steps from everything!! The staff is awesome, the rooms are brand new and really clean, you feel like if you where in an Hotel instead of the typical dirty, ugly hostel.
All the staff are experts on turism, San Jose BEST places to visit and they will answer all the questions you may have, also they have made some partnership with a local café, so if you stay at the hostel they give you special treatment!!
The common area is very relaxing, they have 2 satellite Tv's. and large sofas to take a nap jeje. Its like stay with family!
The internet is really fast! and complementary, if you don't have a laptop they let you use the one at the reception, no charge!
