Kaps is nicely located in walking distance to downtown San Jose. Karolina made me feel welcome throughout my whole stay. The hostel is very well managed, room was comfortable and clean, the atmosphere is very peaceful and friendly. Wifi is reliable and pretty fast and the breakfast buffet is good too. Good home base to explore the lovely city.
A nice hostel with all kinds of rooms and chill spaces to relax in. I would stay there again if in San Jose. Thanks, Karolina!
I was a bit uncertain I had made the right decision when I arrived at Kap's Place and was assigned one of three rooms adjoining a common area, with a number of college-age girls for neighbors. Mainly, I was concerned it would be noisy when I was ready to sleep ... not the case. Just as I observed the "quiet" rules, so did they. So, I actually enjoyed this funky place with its several food-prep and seating areas, outdoor patio and breezeway. I even asked to see other rooms which I might consider for a longer-term stay in the future. And, the staff were very pleasant and helpful folks.
I have really enjoyed my stay at Kaps Place, "my home in San Jose". I am using it as a base during my travels of Costa Rica. The first night I arrived I stayed in a room next to the reception, I needed an early night after a long and tiring jouney and found that there was a little too much activity going on that close to the reception. This time I am staying in annex 4, just around the corner from the main building. Here it is quiet and has a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. The staff are very helpful and have willingly given me lots of useful information. They speak excellent English, which for a non-Spanish speaking tourist is a great help. I love the colourful tiles and interior! I can strongly recommend this place as a moderately priced, and pleasant place to stay in San Jose! :-)
