The most convenient hostel for travelers

We have designed this place thinking about what you want and what you need and we know that's why we are the number one hostel in San José. We also hear customers call Pangea "A backpackers paradise" and this is why we get such high reviews in all the guidebooks but we think there is always room for improvement, if there is anything else that you think we could do for you please let us know !!

Check out all the facilities we have for you !!

Our Party deck: We have a balcony facing the swimming pool designed just for parties with a stripper pole , yes you heard right a STRIPPER POLE !! a stage with a variety of club lights this is the spot to party, if you want to celebrate your, birthday ,your anniversary or have any excuse to party just let us know. It will be a pleasure to organize something for the night.

Our food and drinks: We love to eat and drink and this is why we take this two very serious and let us explain you how:

Our Food:

We have real chef in our kitchen with experience cooking all over the world and he is the one in charge to go on the search for only fresh, organic ingredients and we know our food is one of the top reasons people love to come back to Pangea and we have won high rewards for it. Just to give you a quick example : lonely planet latest edition says we have the tastiest burger from the city and lip smacking quesadillas.

Our Drinks:

When it comes to drinks check what the press says about our bar:

The bar is fully stocked with every drink imaginable and boasts "the coldest Imperial in San José." Tico times January 2011.

It is very simple we are professional drinkers and we know that when you are in a warm country you want your beer cold !! Other than that the bar manager know's exactly what is he doing with a happy hour every night for more than 3 hours and willing to make you any drink you could imagine.

Of course there are other hostels that don't want to spend the money and time to provide a safer atmosphere, and they will try to make you think that their hostel is better because you don't have to wear a wristband. The truth is, well you know it, their place is lacking of security and amenities desired by all travelers.

Also we offer at no charge
