Truly a chill hostel, Costa Rica Backpackers is a great stop in San Jose for first time travelers to Costa Rica. The hostel has a very laid back vibe, but is popular and large enough to attract a large and mixed crowd of travelers. Make Costa Rica Backpackers your first stop from the airport and you are sure to meet other travelers with tons of helpful hints and great travel suggestions.

Costa Rica Backpackers appears to have been a mid sized office building at one time, but has had some serious renovations over the last few years. Rooms here host basic bunk beds and personal sized security lockers. Locks are provided to you with a deposit.

Like many other hostels in San Jose, Costa Rica Backpackers offers luggage storage service. So if you realize once you get to Costa Rica that there is no need for your three suitcases, feel free to repack and leave the others behind.

Costa Rica Backpackers has a wealth of hang out spots both inside and out. There is a swimming pool, 8 or so computers, a TV area with satellite and huge flat screen TV, a restaurant with daily movies, and a game room.
