  • Description

    Description

    At our hostel, we endeavor you to have authentic, creative and engaging travel experiences. Here the staff are travelers' connection to the city. We are here to present you with different ways to enjoy it. It is a social hostel, but not a party one. There is some writing on the entrance wall which explains our preference for tolerance: We are not able to tolerate any kind of behavior consisting of religious, sexual, or ethnic discrimination. This is for the comfort of any individual staying with us. Enjoy being here.

    We are conveniently located in San Jose, Costa Rica between the bus stations, the largest park in the city, and the downtown cultural attractions. The hostel is just outside the noisy hustle and bustle but still close enough to be only a 10-minute walk to the central avenue. Travelers love that within 5 minutes you can walk to most of the long-haul bus stops which can take you across all of Costa Rica.

    The exchange consists of making art or performing at the hostel. We offer free night stay to artistic travelers who will make art or performance at the hostel.

    There is always tea, coffee and mineral water offered in common areas for free. There is a common kitchen.

    Enjoy being here with us.
