About Us

Feel like at home and become part of our family the instant you walk into our beautiful classical renovated property, which used to be owned by important political leaders of Costa Rica. Located in Barrio Escalante, an outstanding cultural and gastronomical hotspot in the whole country (just 30 min away from the airport and 15 min at a walking distance from San Jose downtown). Seven blocks surrounded by over more than 80 restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, and bars that offer national and international cuisine, this simply makes us the best located hostel in San José. We are also close to supermarkets, bus stations, banks, shopping centers, university areas, galleries, museums and parks.

At Hostel Finca Escalante we are super passionate about our guests, we understand the needs of a traveler, that’s why our friendly and knowledgeable staff is committed in going above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay.

Wake up to the smell of the best coffee in the world (Farmed in San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica), Barrio Escalante used to be a coffee plantation, so it just makes it a bit more special. Enjoy the world famous Costa Rican sunset from our deck, the terrace, or just chill and have a drink or beer in our garden.

 We take very seriously the importance of a good night sleep for our fellow travelers, so we have equipped our beds with high quality mattresses in order to provide comfort and a few other gadgets that will be very useful.
