About Us

Hostel Urbano is the newest boutique Hostel in San Jose, located in San Pedro. Two blocks from the University of Costa Rica and one block from National Bank, Outlet Mall, groceries, taxis, buses, you name it, since everything is so close!  We have remodeled/redecorated a 60’s big and gorgeous house, adding a clean, fresh and artistic vibe to create a minimalist but yet warm space.


The name Hostel Urbano is because we are located on the heart of San Pedro, so it is as Urban as it can get, but not in the San Jose center way (were you can see travesties, and people living in the streets, also super dirty) so its cleaner, safer, nicer, much more ambience and better located than staying  in the pure center downtown. This house has 8 bedrooms some with private bathrooms, some shared. All rooms have high quality mattresses, pillows and linens and some privates even have balconies that give a view of the neighborhood.


There is a living room with a flat screen TV and tour information desk, as well as a kitchen for everyone to share, with windows to our own herb garden were you can grab from thime to rosemary or basil to cook.


In the mornings, we offer a simple yet satisfying breakfast to start your day free of charge. Hot Costa Rican coffee and fresh fruit, along with our delicious pancakes and syrup!


Students, Teachers, business men/women, backpakers, nomads, all kinds of travelers Hostel Urbano is the place to stay while in San Jose. While you fall in love with our town, and the urban vibe, let us take good care of you. Bring your earplugs because San Pedro can be noisy at times especially during rush hour. Other than that, we will do our best help you have a relaxing, wonderful, safe, and memorable holiday or (extended) vacation.


We will also help you with arrangements for tours, rent a car, taxis, bus schedules, etc. Our staff is dedicated to helping you have a wonderful experience while in San Jose, even if you are just staying the night in between travels from Caribbean to the Pacific coast or in case you want to get to know more about our culture, and hang around San Jose.
