Where to Stay in San Jose
For those who havn't had the pleasure of staying at a backpacker's hostel, they typically are filled with young people from all over the world. More popular hostels can feel like an eternal party. If you don't mind the noise of people returning late at night and talking way too loudly, then you may want to check out the Bed and Breakfast scene.
Hostels can cost as little as $10 per night for a private room. Many people stay in shared dorm style rooms for $5 - $7 per night. Many hostels have shared kitchens and/or a restaurant attached. Some have internet connections which seem to be popular.
We have looked at Costa Rica Backpackers, Tranquilo Backpackers and the Quaker hostel, Casa Ridgeway C 15, Av 6/8, Tel +506 221-8288. As part of our trip is to visit a Quaker school in Monteverde, (more on this later) we will certainly stop in at Casa Ridgeway.
Does anyone have experience with these places? Others to recommend? What would you do if you had just a few days in San Jose CR?
