Helpful staff, clean and safe Feb 22, 2010
If you are looking for a safe and cheap place to stay, the Kabata Hostel is your first choice.

We, a group of three, stayed there twice, once for 2 nights, and once for one night.

The owners family is really nice and helpful. We where able to store our diving gear in a locked room while we went exploring costa rica and picked it up a week later do go diving in Panama. He also took the time to explain in lenght, what our choices where in transportation around Costa Rica. He also organizes trekking and climbing excursions and offers a lot of rental gear.

We where in low season, so there was not a lot of people there and we had ample space. The hostel features single rooms as well as shared rooms with bunk beds. The beds are comfortable and clean. There is a small computer room with 3-4 computers that can be used for free.

Drinks and snacks are sold at the reception, and a small kitchen is available if you like to cook your own meals. A light breakfast (Toast, Butter and Jam) is included in the price.

affordable & simple Jun 01, 2009
i had planned on staying at tranquilo backpackers, but they overbooked so i ended up going across the street to Kabata Hostel. i stayed in a private room with a friend for one night.

pro: free breakfast, the person at the desk was very helpful, close to the bus station, i felt very safe there, free internet, free travel books you can check out.

con: a bit too quiet for my liking, bathrooms were a bit smelly.

conclusion: if you're looking for a place to actually get some rest, and not be annoyed by loud, crazy, drunk, people this hostel is for you.
this was the private room i stayed…
