    Robert is one of the greatest hosts I've ever stayed with. He is running a turtle saving project at the Atlantic Coast of Costa Rica ( and uses the hostel in San Jose to connect with more people from overseas - at a very affordable price. The hostel itself is in a residential area, right next to a road packed with great restaurants, bars and especially cafés. Before and after our stay Robert already sent us a ton of valuable recommendations for travel in Costa Rica

    The Hostel is really nice and clean. The area around is nice and safe. There are supermarkets and restaurants around the corner. Robert is a fantastic host who can assist with lots of travel recommendations and helps wherever he can. Can absolutely recommend the Turtle Saving Hostel.

    Der Host Robert ist super nett und hilft einem bei jedem Problem. Das Frühstück ist sehr lecker und frisch zubereitet. Der Schlafsaal, die Betten und Bäder sind super sauber. Der einzige kleine Wermutstropfen ist, dass die Küche nicht frei zugänglich ist. Auf Nachfrage bekommt man aber Teller und was man sonst noch braucht. Ich kann das Hostel nur empfehlen.

    Robert was a helpful guy, who immediately helped us plan our trip through costa rica and gave us some helpful tipps. The hostel is located in a very safe area of the city and we had a very nice breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay there.

    Really good place to stay in San José. Quiet, safe and clean. The host is very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast, strong coffee. The most important aspect however is the fact that 20% of the revenue go to a local turtle saving project that the host is supporting. 100% recommandation!

    The Host (Robert) was friendly and helpful. He gave us a lot of insider tipps for our trip through Costa Rica. The hostel, its athmosphere and the stuff made us feel like being at home. The hostel is located 15 minute walk from the center and has a lot of restaurants and supermarkets near by. We absolutely recommend to stay here during your stay in San Jose.
