Karol's mother greeted me upon my late arrival and was warm and helpful. A few people in the halls chatting and laughing. I was super tired so just hit the sack after cool shower. No hot water, though it is so hot in Costa Rica, it doesn't matter. Bed was comfy and breakfast was made to order and very good.

The place is in a very nice location. The staff is great and helpful. I could have given a better rate if it wasn't for the fact that my room was by the hallway and I could hear people talking and walking all the time. Overall the place is good. If you are looking for a nice location, good price this is a good place to stay.

We arrived no problem for our reservation the first night. The neighborhood was safe and hostel accessible. It was slow around the city and at the hostel due to the Holy Week holiday. We enjoyed our first night, as it was enough for the slight money. However, by the second day, we learned that there was no hot water and "sometimes there is no water at all". Again, we were able to manage as we were only there for a short time and a little money. The morning breakfasts were worth the price alone. However, on the second night when my brothers' plane from the states was delayed and it took an hour to rent the car, I didn't return with them from the airport until after 11pm. We returned to find that the hostel was completely locked up behind two gates including a padlock. All the lights were turned off, and we were seemingly stranded. Luckily, we had rented a car, so felt like we had a back-up plan. After 30 minutes of ringing the phone (also luckily, I had a SIM card which provided Costa Rican phone service) and ringing the bell, someone came to unlock the gate. However, they hesitated to let my brothers in even though I had already paid for the reservation! In the end, all worked out and we all slept soundly. Needless to say, a potentially stressful and disastrous situation was averted with much luck and perseverance. It should be stated clearly on the airBNB site that the gates will lock at a certain time and that there is no hot water.

Karol's place was very centrally located. It was within 20-30 minutes' walking distance (walks that traversed parks and public areas) of the central market, several museums, and the Spirogyra butterly garden. The decor inside the B&B was culturally relevant and appealing, and our room was clean and neat. The breakfast area and garden at the back of the B&B were lovely and a good place to do some bird watching. Employees were helpful and friendly, setting up taxi service for us and providing information about things to do in San Jose. We very much enjoyed our stay there.

We didn't meet Karol but the staff was very helpful, Thanks Nikki. We had some confusion as to the right place because of the name. Mostly our fault as I did find an email with the right name. The room and other facilities were very nice.

We had a great stay at Hotel Pasado Del Sol - the accomodations were just what we needed and very accessible to downtown San Jose. Marta and Marlon, our on-site hosts, were very friendly and helpful, although there was a bit of a language barrier since my boyfriend and I don't speak fluent Spanish. Still, we got some great practice! Wifi worked very well, which was important since we had a bit of remote work to do, and the complementary breakfast was delicious! Would stay here again if we go back to San Jose. Our only complaint is that, originally, we had planned to stay at Hotel Pasado for the full 8 days of our vacation, but we decided a day or two before arriving that we wanted to shorten our stay to 3 days so we had time to explore other parts of Costa Rica. Though we requested this change in advance from Karol Hidalgo (who manages the Airbnb account from an offsite location), our alteration was not approved online and we ended up paying for the full 8 days even though we checked out sooner. We were not able to speak directly to Karol at any point, and even after we messaged both in English AND Spanish, she claimed to be confused and did not refund our money nor did she give us an explanation. Overall though, a good experience for the price. 5 stars for customer service of on-site staff but only 2 stars for booking and management.
