Great Cheap Place To Stay In Costa Rica Apr 11, 2008
Anyone going to Costa Rica and looking for real cheap spot to rest or collect some plans Costa Rica Backpackers is the place to go. It is a hostel but it is decorated well secure the staff are helpful and the price is great. Last time i went it was like 9 USD for a night in a private room with shared bath. They have all types of rooms of your typical hostel setup. They also have this whiteboard where people in the hostel post their travel plans and invites are usually open to anyone just go knock on the room number they provided. They have pool free internet, free coffee, towel service (with deposit), and connections with most of the tour companies. The only bad part is its kinda out of the way from the center of things. However, if you are just laying over to rest from the flight for the night or just plan to stay only a day or two to get your bearings then its perfect. Especialy if you travel like me with absolutely no plans after landing, you can get swept up into the tide of enthusiastic cool, cool travelers here. And in my experience the ride will be nothing short of grand.

Great hostel in San Jose Dec 17, 2007
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Free coffee, free internet, snack bar, swimming pool, hammocks, big kitchen... great place to meet other travellers.

At first we stayed in a 4-bed dorm, which was big enough and clean, with lockers. After that we moved to a twin room, really spacious. Nothing fancy but good value for the price.

They showed a movie every evening in the snack bar but, if you are not up for movies, you can always chill out in one of the hammocks by the swimming-pool or go to the tv lounge... many places to relax!

The location is pretty good too, abour 15-20 minutes walk from downtown.

It's definately a great place to stay and meet other travellers. We met some interesting people here and had a great time.

This place is cool. It has a bar/restaurant with reasonable food and nightly films (although we were unlucky enough to see Spiderman 2 twice two weeks apart). It also has a pool and free Internet, free coffee and lots of places to chill. Watch out for the cats. I had one munching on a dead rat under my hammock. The rooms next to the pool can be a bit noisy as Americans shout that "it ainĀ“t pronouced Jaco, but yer say Haco" into the wee hours. God bless America.

This is the place to be if your staying in San Jose, its very clean, cheap, and has a good atomsphere, plus the staff are helpful. There is a brilliant size kitchen with everything you would need to cook up a dinner, cooking not your thing, well then visit the restaurant where they cook up fresh nachos and other dishes. its only 600colones for a beer, and 500colones for a coca cola. Did i mention that there is a pool!!! and also internet access whenever you want, a decent book exchange, and films everynight in the restaurant, or just lounge in front of the tv!!! If your english and love football, then dont worry they do show matches here!!!! just tune the tv into FOXSPORTS!! i use this hostel as my stay point everytime i am in San Jose..
