The Experience

Our establishment is located at downtown San Jose where is surrounded by great variety of fine restaurants and nightlife, also we are very closed to all mayor bus stations to beaches and touristic spots, we have volunteers from different places around the world so the volunteers will be able to practice Spanish and English with our staff and also to exchange experiences and knowledge with them.

El hostal está dirigido por una agradable familia venezolana, el dueño César, es muy comprensible con el horario siempre y cuando seas responsable y hagas bien tu trabajo. La ubicación del hostal es lo mejor porque está muy cerca del centro y es muy fácil y rápido llegar a todos los lugares. Muy recomendado! Espero disfrutes tu experiencia tanto como yo!

I am in this hostel now, this hostel is managed by a friendly Venezuelian family. The hostel is located in the centre of San Jose, everything is close to the hostel (museums, market, bus station). Every day I meet intersting people from all over the world, it is a really international place with a chance to know more about different cultures. I will stay in August here too )))
