From Downtown San Jose:
Take any bus from downtown San Jose to San Pedro/University District and get off in Los Yoses at the Rio's Bar Bus Stop, then go downhill 100 meters south, next, 50 meters west and we are on the corner!

From SJO Int'l Airport:
The easiest way to come to the hostel from the airport is with us! If you want to be picked up at the airport by one of our drivers, just send us your flight number and the arrival time. The cost is $30 for one or two persons, same price as a regular taxicab.

If you prefer to come by bus, just take any TUASA (Alajuela) bus going to San Jose. From San Jose downtown, take any bus going to San Pedro, and stop at Rio Bar (5 minute ride). From Rio Bar walk one block South (left)… sign will let you know that you've arrived to the best hostel in San Jose!


We accept credit cards for all payments. Cancellation policy 48hrs!
