The bar, one block away from the hostel, is way too loud around 1am. The overall ambiance/atmosphere wasn't that great either (too many kids running all over the place and upset people). It still does offer a place to stay which is clean and looks to be secure.

Casa Yoses, is a really great hostel. The rooms were clean, beds nicely made and clean, staff was great especially the three Lovely ladies, Miriam, Josephine, and Fee Nee, super great help. I recommend Casa Yoses to be a great hostel.

con algunas adaptaciones mínimas puede mejorar la limpieza general del sitio y ser mas eficientes los servicios de baños y regaderas

My favorite hostel in Costa Rica so far. The patio is the perfect place to watch the sunset.

we were told we'd be picked up at the airport, but i dont' think that info got passed to the staff on the shift when we were there. the toilets did not flush, bathrooms smelled kind of gross, but I am biased about that benzene crystal toilet cleaning thing. can't stand the smell.
