If you want to enjoy the untapped excitement of San Jose, Aldea Hostel is sure to lead you in the right direction. Like Aldea in Cordoba, Argentina we are the meeting point for travelers from all over the world who are looking to get the best out of these great cities. Right in the sweet spot where all the best happenings of San Jose take place. Standing in front of the famous Sala Garbo theater, known for its showings of intellectual foreign films. You will be no more than 100 meters from Paseo Colon, the street where most national celebrations take place such as Festival de la Luz and El Desfile de Carrozas which start off the New Years party! Most importantly Aldea is just a walking distance away from the main bus terminals that take you all around the country including the Caribbean and Pacific beaches. Aldea Hostel, is a beautifully renovated historic, Caribbean-style wooden Victorian mansion, that's the perfect rest stop on your journey through the land of 'Pura Vida'.

With our unique dcor and ambiance, Aldea is like no other place. We pride ourselves in having a chill out environment with a touch of sophistication. The Main Room allows you to socialize over a game of billiards or while sharing a film on movie night with the fellow guests on our big screen TV. We offer several state of the art computers for your convenience and free WiFi for your laptops. Our ample backyard has ping-pong table and a grill dying to be lit, and our large eat-in kitchen is great for watching passersby. If eating out is your thing then take a walk in any direction and you will find exactly what youre looking for. At night you can enjoy a drink with your new friends at our bar-style counter-tops.

At Aldea wev got all it takes to offer the best and we deliver. Great team, full of fun young, enthusiastic people, who are all bilingual. Always attentive to your personal needs to make sure your stay in San Jose is unforgettable. We can say from experience that where you lay your head must be immaculate. Our rooms of 4,6, and 8 follow this idea. Starting with bunk-beds that contain great quality, thick mattresses. Personal bathrooms for each room that have hot water unlike many Hostels. Well circulated cool fresh air thanks to the tall spacious rooms and of course for those couples that want privacy we can accommodate them as well with private bedrooms.

All thats left is for you to check-out our website and check-in to a room because we guarantee you that Aldea is like no other Hostel out there. Well maybe the aldea in Argentina.
