The capital city of Costa Rica is located in the Central Valley and is a great place to start or end your visit to this magical land. Stray Cat Hostel is located within 5 minutes of many bus terminals that can take you all across the country and Central America. Also 5 minutes from our front door is the central avenue of San José called Paseo Colón which connects you to the largest park in the city and several pedestrian avenues with many cultural attractions.
We take great pride in providing our guests with delicious breakfast to start the day off right, friendly advice about local life, and connections with real people and places that matter. Our goal is to provide an experience for every traveler that completely satisfies their unique way of exploring local culture, at Stray Cat there is no "one size fits all" hospitality.
Everything at Stray Cat is designed to extend your experience in the wild jungle into the relaxing calm of a hostel atmosphere. We think nature knows best, after all, she has quite a few years of experience designing beautiful spaces. All of our spaces have been curated with integral sustainability in mind.
