Really good - quite and out of the noisy traffic of San Jose, but close enough to walk to downtown (15-20mins) - just... more...

-200 mts north from \"La Sede Lechera\".


-From Arenas San Pedro four blocks South (go past a bridge) and turn right, then straight ahead three blocks, corner house in the right hand of the street.


-From Veritas University three hundred meters East, then exit to the right (North) and advance two hundred meters, you will see a corner house in front of you, that's the hostel.


Exit the airport and get to the bus stop that is in the main street. Once there, take a bus (TUASA and STATION WAGON are the two bus companies that you should be looking for) to San José, it should cost you around US$1,00.
Once you reach the bus station in front of a park and a church (Parque de la Merced) in San Jose, you should get off and can either:

a) Get a taxi to the hostel, which should cost between US$4,00 and US$6,00. We recommend that you keep the hostel's addresses handy just in case the driver doesn't know where it is.

b) Start walking East in 2nd Avenue until you reach the Caja Costarricense del Seguro Social building (approximately a one kilometer walk) in the right hand of the street. Once there you should look for the buses that head to Zapote. Ask for the Zapote buses that stop near Veritas University and take those. Make sure to tell the driver that you want to get off at Veritas. Once there, you should walk three hundred meters East, then exit to the left (North) and advance two hundred meters, you will see a corner house in front of you, that's the hostel.

Located Near

Stolas is located in Los Yoses, a safe and calm neighborhood just outside downtown San Jose. Once mainly residential, in the past years a lot of people have left Los Yoses, giving way to an array of business such as law firms, restaurants and bars.

Stolas's central location makes it easy for you to reach the following places:
Bus, train, and taxi stops
Downtown San Jose
