This is way far the best experience I ever had staying at a hostel. Though they should change the description to be more accurate and say this a home for the traveler 'cos you do feel very much at home, place is clean, modern, well-put, staff is great!! I couldn't be more thankful with my stay. Thank you all !!!

Absolutely loved staying at The Garden! I was able to get to know the city better and found people to continue traveling with. Andrea and Juan were great hosts who genuinely wanted the guests to connect with each other and have a good time. Would highly recommend!

Andrea's place is the best hostal I have ever been. At this place you will enjoy a great environment, like if you were at home. The bed was super comfy, the breakfast delicious and the staff super friendly and helpful. The hostal location was beautiful and secure, if you walk some blocks you will find many restaurants, transportation and mini markets. If you like vegan food, visit Luv Burger, just like 3-4 blocks away and if you are a coffee lover visit Cafeoteca; which style was beautiful and the coffee delicious. I will definetely stay again if I ever come back to Costa Rica. Best regards and great work to all the staff!

The most valuable thing about the Garden CR were definitely its hosts. Everyone was very friendly and they went out of their way to make me feel welcomed and also provided all of the information needed to explore CR. This was a thousand times better than staying at a hotel or a house. I made amazing friends in the couple of nights I stayed. The place itself was always clean and located within walking distance of downtown SJ, additionally the neighborhood is very safe and quiet. Beautiful experience.
