TravelPod Member ReviewsCastle Tam Hostel San Pedro
A good hostel, with a nice atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. The city was deserted and closed over easter, and the staff made an effort to still make our stay in San Jose a good one. Two kitchens, good wifi, and a good breakfast!

... look #56. Tomorrow- more Spanish, dancing, cooking class, and watching 'the fault in our stars'- with Spanish subtitles to keep it educational ;) half price for movies on Wednesday, therefore, we go.

After a week it was unfortunately time to leave so that I could squeeze in ...
... down the stone stepped path to the majestic water fall. Which I got to tell ya, is not an easy thing on crutches, but with mother goose Alan by my side I was safe as a baby kanga in his mommies pouch. Kelly was splishing and splashing in the river as Bob, Micheala, Bryce, Heather, and Kaylee braved the cold waters and went for a swim. I myself tried to join but was stopped by the boss (AKA the wife). Melissa thought ...
... there were tropical plants all around us, there were flashlights....haha only things missing were dinosaurs. The tour guides were awesome and really knew their stuff. We got back to our hotel late that night, and the power was out, of course. Haha but it made for a fun night of trying to eat dinner and get dry in pitch black rooms. The next morning we got picked up by the guides again and then headed to a natural hot spring river!! It was ...
