  • Karolina Bermúdez gestiona Kaps Place con mano de seda. Si hay una palabra que define este lugar es servicio. Y si hay que añadir alguna más puedo utilizar las palabras confianza, limpieza, proximidad al centro, seguridad, relax, aromas, luces... Excelente desayuno y buen equipo para todo lo que necesita el viajero, con José Luis y Fernando.

    Un lugar mágico por las personas que lo hacen posible: muy recomendable. Gracias Karolina por crear un hogar para el visitante y por tu sonrisa permanente.

  • We stayed a couple of nights and absolutely loved Karolina's hostel. It was in a nice, safe, and quiet neighborhood with a really cosy cafe up the street, and walkable to the city center which can be very noisy. We had our own room, and the staff was really helpful from beginning to end - they're SUPER friendly and helpful with everything you need. The building is a great place with lots of different areas to chill, watch TV, be online or play games. And, the included breakfast you can enjoy in the very nice garden is a heavenly start to your every day. Thank you guys for making the start of our journey!

  • Great place to stay in San Jose. Great location. Excellent hospitality. We really enjoyed the fresh fruits for breakfast and loved squeezing our own fresh juice each morning. The common areas were nice for when it rained.....pool, ping pong, foosball, free internet.
    The only thing we did not like about Kaps Place, was that our room did not have a window. I would definitely recommend making sure to book a room with a window. Everything else was great.

  • This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and I stayed for the month of November at Kaps Place. As a single female traveler, I felt very comfortable and safe in the neighborhood. The room and common areas are VERY clean. Breakfast was plentiful (I am missing the wonderful fresh fruit) and coffee and tea were available all day.

    Karolina is an amazing hostess! She was extremely helpful in booking my day trips, recommending other hotels in CR when I traveled and answered all questions I had.

    Karolina, Dorothe, David, and staff were warm and welcoming. Many nights the guests gathered together to cook, talk, and share their CR experiences together. For Thanksgiving, Karolina surprised us by taking us to the store and purchasing the groceries for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, and invited everyone to join in the fun - a memory that I will always cherish!

    Many friendships were made and I am looking forward to returning! Thank you Karolina!
