Hostelz.com's Review
Hostel Nomadas Backpackers is located just two kilometers away from the city center of San Jose, in a quiet but very safe area of the city -- really near the Parque Savana and the National Stadium. This is an oasis in the city and the small garden in the backyard is perfect for relaxing. Don't expect a party hostel, as the sympathetic family that runs the hostel prefer to keep things quiet and relaxed for everyone, and they will help you to plan your trip in Costa Rica according to your budget and schedule. Usually the breakfast is included and has coffee, tea, toasts, butter, and jam -- basic, but enough for everybody.

The Location

The hostel is not located in the city centre, but the area is really quiet and safe. You'll find nice restaurants, cafes, and supermarkets just two or three minutes' walking distance. It isn't easy to find the hostel, but with the directions online, you can get a taxi -- if you give the taxi driver the phone number, there's a big probability he'll call the hostel to be sure he knows where it is. If you arrive by car, there will be enough spots to park a car near the hostel for free. The owners of the hostel can provide you all the information you need about how to get from the hostel to any place you want to explore in the city.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Nomadas has two floors and a few rooms. The dorms are enough for the number of beds and people. The bunks are comfortable enough and the shared bathrooms are really clean. Only one of the bathrooms will have hot water in the shower, but usually you don't have to wait a long time to have a hot shower.

Common Spaces

The living rooms is really nice, with sofas, television, and a computer with free access to the internet. There is also free Wi-Fi in most places of the building. The kitchen has all the utensils you will need and is big enough for the amount of guests. There is laundry available if you need it. There isn't a travel agency, but the owners will help you to plan your trip in Costa Rica according to your budget and schedule.

Summary

This is a nice hostel that has all the things you will need in San Jose. The owners speak very good English and are very friendly and helpful with everything you will need during your stay in Costa Rica. It's definitely good value for money in San Jose.

5   Excellent Hostel This hostel has everything you need to feel comfortable in San Jose. A little bit outside the city center but in a safe and peaceful area. The family that runs the hostel is very friendly and can help you plan your journey through Costa Rica. The rooms and the bathrooms are very clean and nice. The garden with hammocks completes the "landscape." It is really a hostel where you feel welcome and relaxed. Really recommended!  , Portugal ()
