alistairgh the hotel is very clean and the staff are helpful - they arranged me a taxi in the morning very promptly. the location is quiet but also a little further away from the main part of downtown so a little extra walk to there. i think it's possible to get a better value for money accommodation in san jose but this was fine. the bathroom facilities were nice and clean and the room is large! there's no TV in the room and this was a bonus for me.

Paul17 This place has all what you need to feel more than welcome.The owners can help you for local tours or planning your journey.I really had a good time here as the showers are hot ones and there is a local shopping center only 5mins walk. This hostel is really clean. As a guest you can also enjoy the little balcony that gives on a private garden or if it is rainy, enjoy one of their numerous movies available for free, play x-box or simply chill on their giant sofa in front of the flat screen. Only one word (two actually) comes to me to describe this hostel "Pura Vida"

carol1966 It is very easy to get from Casa Oshun into downtown San Jose. It's nice to be in a quiet residential area in a lovely home and not in a crowded, loud hostel. Manual is very friendly, helpful with all my questions, and he makes a great breakfast. The dining area is lovely and completely open to the outside and there were lovely breezes. The cats were very welcoming too. There is a supermarket, bank, and restaurants within easy walking distance. A taxi from the airport was $18.

mapinto Great location, very friendly staff who helped me book my trips around the country. Thank you Iola and Robin, and Federico! If you stay there, make sure you have time to go to the restaurant located just outside the main door (Jardin del Parque) - delicious organic vegetarian food!

mariaeb 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).

Sam I Am It's been a while since I stayed here but it was a nice hostel. The pool especially makes this place on a hot day! It was within walking distance of El Pueblo, but I don't remember the location being that fantastic compared to earlier stays in San Jose.

skulljuice1 John, the owner, was more than helpful with everything, and a great host. Price and location were great, and the hostel was surprisingly quiet at night. My only real complaint about the place was much of it seemed unfinished, or under construction. Lots of half finished areas in the place. That, to me, seems like a temporary condition which will only improve over time. Not anything that would keep me from staying there, if I'm ever in San Jose again. The helpful and friendly host and staff more than made up for the work in progress. Overall, a strong recommendation.
