We were staying at a nearby hostel, and their front desk referred us to Hostel Casa Colon for dinner, so we walked over. It's a nice Spanish colonial type building, with a restaurant and bar downstairs. We thought the food was delicious and the prices were quite reasonable for the city. Friendly, great service. Try the Aztec soup...mmmm!!!!!

Decent place, friendly and helpful staff. It's San Jose so expect it to be noisy, but with earplugs I slept fine. Stayed in a dorm room just for a night on my way in between the south and the north and had no problems, but also didn't get all that much of a feel for it. The bed was surprisingly firm and even, without the sagging middle that's almost ubiquitous in hostel beds. The Terminal 7/10 bus station, where the Monteverde bus goes from, is about a 15 minute walk away, so it's a convenient location (the only other closer ones are pretty shady looking and not listed on TA).

We only went to the restaurant, which had a good selection of Costa Rican food - something we found hard to find in San Jose as all the Western chains are there in abundance. I guess Ticos want something other than their typical food when they eat out. We were also shown around the hostel by our enthusiastic server, she is clearly proud of the hostel and the common areas are certainly delightful. But even if you don't stay, try the food!

Thank you for this review! We actually try to have typical options in our menu to compliment the Costa Rican experience for all our guests and visitors.
Is really good to know you enjoyed our food.

We stayed in a dorm while we were there and it was very clean and the staff were very informative. Plus the restaurant has good food. Would stay definitely stay here again if we were back in the city!

The hostel has a restaurant attached to it. I ate quiet a few meals there and enjoyed the meals and the company! You must try the nutella desert with strawberries! It is delicious with champagne and I must admit I had it more than on time! The hostel is an easy block from the main blvd with outdoor and indoor dining.
