Unbelievable for the price
This was unbelievable for the price! Lovely view for breakfast.Bring a small lock for the cubby that holds your suitcase.

Standards are slipping
We have stayed at Fauna several times before but the last couple of times we have felt that things are getting broken and not getting fixed. We have since found out that the ownership changed hands in September and im afraid that they are cutting corners. On this visit we were told that breakfast coffee has been restricted to 2 cups per person, and while I think this is reasonable , be aware that the penny pinching has not gone unnoticed. I always recommend Fauna to friends and family who need a hotel in San Jose, but I worry that it will no longer be a luxury hostel soon, and we may stop coming.

Definitely a place to stay 👍
First of all I was extremely well greeted as I approached the front desk they took care of me quickly and professionally the room was clean the place is centrally located I would definitely recommend it and I also had a great piña colada underground parking garage so you don’t have to worry about where you’re leaving your vehicle I will be back

Good 6.0
Luxury for hostel standards!!!
I have never stayed in a hostel before, but I chose Fauna because of the reviews. I guess for a hostel it was luxuries, but for a solo traveler who is use to staying in hotels, i would say it was OK. Not a horrible place to lay your head, but not my cup of tea. Good for those people who are on a tighter budget.
