Tranquilo Backpackers REVIEW San Jose Costa Rica Tranquilo Backpackers run 2 hostels in Costa Rica, this REVIEW is for the one in San Jose, the other being on the Nicoya Peninsula around the Malpais Teresa area (I’m sure we’ll get there soon). Tranquilo Backpackers starts at $10. for a dorm style room but also has more privacy for $17 and $28, but is it worth it? How far EXACTLY does $10 go at Tranquilo Backpackers? It is conveniently located to just about anything you want to do in San Jose, but is that enough? Is this a run-of-the-mill hostel or a step-up from the rest? Check out this review and see if Tranquilo Backpackers is worth the price of admission. You might be surprised at what we have to say. ENjoY.
