  • The 10 Best Hostels in San José, Costa Rica

Budget travellers know that there is no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a bit more.

Hostels that guests love in San José
  • More of a hotel than a hostel, which is great! Nice colonial building. Price was good and brekky was nice. Free coffee all day is super!

  • Nice hostel hidden in a very nice neighborhood of San Jose. Great place to meet other backpackers, the facilities are nice although showers & toilets could have been better. The staff was very friendly & allow late check-in. Also the breakfast was good, couple of options to choose from. I really enjoyed the garden & swimming pool.

  • An ordinary backpacker hostel it has a quiet very nice spacious room with a bath upstairs which is a bargain. Hostel is located in quiet, safe upscale neighbor with some of the cities best restaurants. Staff helpful.

  • The owner of Hotel Kekoldi was extremely helpful and charming. He was very accommodating and made us feel at home. The garden area is amazing! It was a great value and a nice location to Central Avenue. I strongly recommend backpackers and travellers to consider this hotel over the hostels in the area. It was an awesome experience and very fairly priced.
