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.
Located near the southern edge of Barrio México, you’ll be situated just between busy urban life and a friendly neighborhood where many families have lived for generations. Within just a couple blocks you can enjoy a lively park, a fresh juice stand, local restaurants with typical food called sodas, pizzerias, convenience stores, and one of the oldest nightclubs in the city called Castro’s. There is something for everyone here!
Don’t forget to head across the street to try a fresh, cold coconut, too. Pura vida!
