The Garden Hostel & Guesthouse. San José, Costa Rica

 Hosting your San José Experience!

The Garden Hostel & Guesthouse


Best Location!

Located next to Barrio Escalante, the best restaurants in town just steps away from our hostel. Need recommendations? we know the best places! . The east side of San José is thriving with restaurants, pubs, bars, yoga places, gym, concerts, it´s hard to keep track of all of it! But the best part? We are in one of the last dormitory neighborhoods,  meaning: It is full with nightlife all around but it is really quiet at night, you can actually sleep in this hostel ! The president actually lives two blocks away, so it´s safe to walk everywhere. Super market is four blocks away, convenience store one block away, nearest bar also one block away. 

Great Hosts!

We were born in San José and we love this place.  We are more than happy to share our city with our guests.  If we don´t know something we will figure it out. We are here to help! 

Clean and confortable

 The hostel is very spacious and it is just one of those places were you can feel a great vibe. It is hard not to meet nice people and have a great time when you feel like home. You will feel glad you chose The Garden Hostel, it feels different, it let´s you relax and chill  while enjoying all the craziness and energy San José offers.  For us the cleanliness of the rooms and property is our top priority to make you feel comfortable during your stay. It is hard to find a hostel in Costa Rica with our standards.

Things every hostel should have

Of course we offer everything a hostel should have like high-speed wifi, board games, books, hammocks, awesome mattress, soft linens & towels, a fully equipped kitchen, fridge. What we don´t have? fratboys getting loud until 3 a.m. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, we have FREE COFFEE. If you work and travel this is the spot.
