Youth must have its fling. ~ Pirates of Penzance, Gilbert & Sullivan, 1879These dormitory-style accommodations, segregated by sex, with shared baths, are a low-cost alternative to private rooms in hotels or B&Bs and a great way to network with fellow travelers.
The Hostels on this website have a Hostel after the listing.
Not just for “youth,” these inexpensive hostels offer card-carrying travelers of any age, secure, clean and relatively comfortable lodgings. You’ll find a number of senior travelers mixed with baby-boomers and collegeaged backpackers from around the globe. Costa Rica boasts some 14 hostels from San José to Limón and places in between.
Toruma Youth Hostel (Av Central East, across from KFC, 506/224-4085) has a congenial European quality. It’s located in San José, not far from Los Yoses, San Pedro, and the U of C campus. The sprawling old building houses the largest hostel in the country, with 95 beds, segregated by sex. Each dormitory room has four to six beds and a large, high-ceiling central lounge that makes a nice place to relax and meet with fellow hostellers. If you need a membership card, get one here for US $12 (a passport photo is needed).
