Our location is perfect for visitors to San Jose, because we are within walking distance of seven of the major bus companies' terminals. This is useful both coming and going to other places in Costa Rica! Downtown San Jose is one of the safest places in Central America, and we are so close to the central district and all the major bus terminals that you don't even need a taxi! The best way to get here is using the Waze app. You'll find us in no time, 3 blocks from the Ticabus terminal, 7 blocks from the Transnica bus stop, where most busses from the north arrive, and a 10 minute walk from San Carlos Station for anyone who has come from the south. Waze will get you to us in no time.

While San Jose is one of the safest cities in Central America, Aldea Hostel would like to remind you that tourists are sometimes the victims of predatory taxi drivers. Some of our guests have had problems with dramatic fare overcharges and dishonest drivers who pretend our hostel is full and take you somewhere else because they receive bribes from other hostels in our area. Just like how you would protect your valuables in a crowded market, you should protect your wallet from scammer taxi drivers. Always negotiate your fare before you get into the taxi, or insist on using the taxi driver's meter. Remember official taxis are red and have a meter in them. Be safe!Read more »
