San Jose

As a first-timer in Costa Rica, I was a bit overwhelmed when I arrived in San Jose. Because our bus arrived late at night, we had no choice but to check into a hotel near the bus terminal.

Located about a 10 minute walk from the main bus terminal, the Classic Hotel is a good budget hotel for the traveling backpacker.

The Hotel/Bed and Breakfast offers private rooms and a private bathroom with amenities such as free internet, breakfast, and hot water.

They also had a dorm room option for $10 a night per person. Breakfast is not included, but the rooms and bathrooms were clean. The houselady provided clean linen sheets. Fortunately, because it was October, (Off-season) we had the entire dorm room to ourselves. Not too shabby.

And although breakfast is not included in the price, you can get it for an extra $2. A nice hearty breakfast plate of rice, beans, and eggs. Plus orange juice and coffee. Not a bad deal, if you ask me.

If you are looking for a place that is simple, economic, and clean, then Classic Hotel might just be the best option.
