My husband and I who are middle aged stayed here during their slow season. There were only a few people there and we enjoyed it very much! Orietta and Luis are very helpful. They speak English which was quite helpful to us as our Spanish is not good. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast of toast, fruit and coffee was...

I stayed here for just two nights. I did not have my alarm clock and needed to catch a bus to Nicaragua. The very friendly staff called all of the bus companies for me and woke me up in the morning so I would not miss my bus. Plus the breakfast was great. Need more people here though so bring...

My one night reservation turned into a 5 night stay in a private room at Green House Hostel. As it is the rainy season, there are not many tourists so the hostel was pretty quiet most of the time. Of course there’s some noise from the street and you can hear babies and the dogs next door, but that’s just...

Arrived late at night in San Jose with a school group of 16 and was met by the owner at the airport who shuttled us back to the hostel...drove through some rather "choice" parts of San Jose on the way back. The hostel was big and the rooms were basic but fine, could've done with a lick of paint though....

Dear reader, if you're going to travel through Costa Rica and you must spend some days in the capital, this is surely one of the best places where to stay. Situated very close the city center, at about fifteen minutes from the main road, the Green House guarantees you a very good service, comfortable rooms with much space and an...

I stayed here 3 nights, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in mid-October. Out of the 53 beds here, only 3 or so have been full during my stay. That's because this is the low time of season. I paid $20 for my own private room that includes shower and toilet. My private room - like all rooms it is centered...

I stayed at Green Hostel with friends from the USA where i used to live. We all felt like home, the owner, Orietta was absolutely wonderful. She is very open to special requests and willing to go beyond the regular service. The location is great if you want to stay close to downtown and other nice attractions in the area....

We have stayed here a few times since our arrival in Costa Rica. The rooms are big and clean and all look out onto the main courtyard which is enclosed. Orietta ,the owner, was amazing in helping us plan our stay and to organise good, cheap accommodation around the country. Also the ability to have breakfast whenever we wanted was...
