The Experience

The facade of our hostel lacks character, we are looking for an artistic globetrotter interested in creating a mural on one of the walls of the front of the building in exchange of lodging and breakfast. We are located in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in San Jose (Barrio Escalante). Near a trendy gastronomic area and within the university district.

Magnífica experiencia, The Garden es una parada obligatoria si tenés pensado venir a Costa Rica, ya sea como voluntario o como huésped, la energía que se siente es como la de llegar a tu hogar y que te reciba tu familia.
Simplemente gracias ❤
