This alluring 1930?s Caribbean-style wooden Victorian mansion nestled in the exclusive neighborhood of San Jose has recently been remodeled into a soothing abode with the highest standards of quality and reliability. Standing right in front of the famous Sala Garbo Theater, it is no more than 100 meters from Paseo Colon, the street where most national celebrations take place. It is a 10-minute walk from the Salvador Metro Station and 25-minute drive from the Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport in Santiago, Chile. read more
From Coca Cola Bus terminal - Exit Coca Cola from the side that has the Hotel Music on the left. Turn right and walk straight till you see Clinica Orlich, then turn right onto Paseo Colon and head in that direction till you reach Pizza Hut on your right. Head left up the hill till you get to the next corner. Aldea is on the right (big GREY building with yellow trim). Our hostel used to be a famous hotel called 'Hotel Petit Victoria'.
From Tica Bus - Total Car will be across the street from Tica Bus. Head right till you get to Horizantes, then turn left and follow that street up past La Fonda and Lunch Bar. Past Pizza Hut and cross the main road, Aldea will be on the right on the next corner.
From Puntarenas bus terminal - It is a walking distance but the taxi would be the quickest and best way. Taxi fair should be no more than 2,000.
There is a bus stop outside San Jose International Airport. The Alajuela - San José route buses stop there in both directions. It will only cost less than a dollar. We are located on 100 meters south from Pizza Hut at the main street called Paseo Colon.
The building has high ceilings and large windows with an air of sophistication. Aside from being relatively economic, the place is clean, well designed, and well located. All the city buses pass by the area. You get the best deal At Aldea!

I absolutely love Aldea Hostel. We stayed there for a week and we were so happy with our choice. The place is clean, with high ceilings, large windows, and has an atmosphere of total relaxation. The kitchen is stunning with its equipment and even has breakfast. Highly recommended to all!
