-Payment only in cash.
-Airport Shuttle: Some Taxis in Costa Rica are very tricky (especially at the airport and in San Jose) They will try to convince you to take you somewhere else by saying all kinds of stories like The hostel is full or, the road is closed because of a protest! The new trick they have is to tell you they will call the hostel for you( while they are calling a friend or relative ) they will pass you the phone and this person will lie to you by saying the hostel is full !!

DO NOT BELIEVE THEM THEY ARE LYING TO YOU and they just WANT TO RIP YOU OFF BIG TIME !! They will also say the road is going to be closed the next morning so they will have to take you all the way to Alajuela so they can overcharge you for a very expensive ride that is completely false and unnecessary! Things get worse because these taxis work on commission with shady hotels and these hotels pay them a commission to take you there but that commission is going to come out of your pocket because they are going to overcharge you for a shitty room so they can give the taxi driver his commission.

    We actually love this place! It is in the center of San José, so it’s easy to get food and everything. The rooms are nice and clean, the beds are comfortable and you feel good there. The staff is super friendly and helps you in every situation. Right from the beginning you arrive, you feel welcomed by the great atmosphere which surrounds this place!

    Das Hostel an sich ist sauber, jedoch herrscht eine spezielle Stimmung, da die meisten Gäste nur eine Nacht da verbringen, um dann anderwo in Costa Rica hinzugehen. Die Bar, die in der Beschreibung steht, ist geschlossen.

    Knastfeeling pur. Währen die Korridore nicht bunt bemalt währe es wirklich unheimlich. Dazu lärmt es sehr oft. Die Zimmer haben eigentlich keine Schalldämmung zum Korridor. Lärmstop ist angesagt. Der Pool und die obere Terrasse sind eigentlich ganz nett. Es gibt Tischtennis und eine Baar.

    Good location and okay for 1-2 nights. The receptionist was very helpful, but overall it is not the greatest vibe and atmosphere in this place.

    the hostel gave me a weird vibe to be honest. it’s not a place to get to know people bc everybody stays there only for a night. i guess that’s not the fault of the hostel. san jose is just not the place where you wanna spend more than one day! pool was dirty, kitchen didn’t had much to offer. rooftop was nice ! bar/restaurant was closed the whole time i stayed there. i left 2 days earlier

    altes schmutziger Wasser im Pool, wird leider auch nicht gereinigt. Die Lage des Hostels ist wirklich sehr gut, Busstationen/Sodas/Geschäfte in ein wenigen Minuten erreichbar. Allerdings ist das Staff nicht besonders freundlich und absolut nicht hilfsbereit. Das Hostel kann ich daher nur sehr bedingt empfehlen.

    we were staying here for 2 nights. area was shady, but I guess that’s San Jose. Staff was super unfriendly & weird - said we didn’t give back the room card, tho we did. rooms stank, no guests allowed, rooftop bar was closed. all in all a clean place with a lot of space tho.
