We made San Jose our last stop just to have a place to stay before our flight out to the States the next morning. When we arrived in the evening, we knew at first glance that we didn't want to stay there. However, since it was cheap and late at night, we decided to just stay since it was only for a few hours.
Was it the worst experience of our WHOLE trip in Costa Rica. Once we stepped in, the people who stayed there and the employees look like they were on something that made their eyes all glazed. The whole hostel looked dirty from the bathrooms to the computers to the beds. We didn't even want to sleep there so we attempted to stay up. However, failed to do so. We ended up sleeping for 2-3 hours, got up right away, and zoomed out of the place. We didn't bother getting ready there since the bathrooms looked disgusting. Instead, we got ready at the airport bathroom.
What turned me off the most was some of the employees were extremely RUDE. All of them are kids from USA which was odd. One kept ragging on where we live (NYC) and another accused my friend of hitting on one of her coworkers. It was bizarre. I would not recommend staying there. All throughout Costa Rica we stayed at hostels and this was the worst. In fact, I've stayed at plenty in Europe and Japan, and this is definitely at the BOTTOM of the list.
