Cleanest hostel you would find in San Jose, Couldn't be in a better location near by banks, supermarkets, main street in San Jose, largest park in San Jose, 10 minutes walk to downtown and 2 blocks away from the bus stop to/from the international airport.

Notice: Some taxi drivers say we are full or that they don't know were we are located, they do this as they would try to take you to another hostel where they get commissions form, so if this happens to you just tell him you have a reservation here, we'll hold the room until you show up.

Great arranged hostel, looks more than a homestay than a hostel. We liked it and we would book it again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

hi!

we've been 3 times in Gaudys backpackers hotel and believe it is a good alternative economic and cozy to sleep in san jose.

Rooms are clean, with individual bathroom (which we reserve) and hot water (something that many accommodations in Costa Rica announced but really are few hotels with hot water in the country).

Hotel staff are very friendly and willing to provide all information required of them (the truth is that generally in Costa Rica we were treated very kindly everywhere).

hola!

hemos estado 3 veces en el hotel Gaudys backpackers y creemos que es una buena alternativa económica y acojedora para dormir en san jose. (una muy buena alternativa relación calidad-precio)

las habitaciones son limpias, con baño propio (las que nosotras reservamos) y agua caliente (algo que muchos alojamientos anuncian en costa rica pero que realmente pocos hoteles del país tienen). Los responsables del hotel son muy amables y estan dispuestos en todo momento a facilitarte toda la información que se les requiera (la verdad es que en general en costa rica nos han tratado con mucha amabilidad en todas partes).
