Aldea Hostel San Jose

Aldea Hostel is a premier meeting point for travellers from all over the world who are looking to get the best out of this great Latin city. Housed in a historic, Caribbean-style wooden Victorian mansion in San José, this is the perfect mid-point and rest stop on your journey through the land of the 'Pura Vida.'

Our prime location, in the most secure and exclusive zone of San Jose, is just across from the famous Sala Carbo and 100 meters from Paseo Colon. We are situated close to the capital’s main attractions including Parque Sabana, and just meters from the bus terminals, from where you can take buses to the Caribbean and Pacific beaches as well as the Ticabus terminals, the gateway to the rest of Central America.

When you’re ravenous and in the mood for the best in local cuisine, just metres away from our doorstep are some of the best restaurants the city has to offer, where you can try Tico dishes such as gallo pinto, arroz con pollo, casados and tamales. If you’re in the mood for foreign food, there’s a host of international restaurants and cafes, including Brazilian barbecue, Lebanese, Argentinean and Chinese in immediate the vicinity. Aldea Hostel is also close to the exclusive neighborhoods of Escazu and Barrio Amon. Our proximity to La Sabana offers quick and easy access to the brand new national soccer stadium. Some of the major embassies, such as those of the UK and the United States, are also nearby.

If you want to feel like you’re at home and between friends, come to Aldea Hostel. We’re waiting for you
