I had organized an airport pickup, and that somehow fell through. Besides that, I found my stay comfortable. I ended up leaving a day early, and they gave me a voucher for a night if I return to San Jose. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, and it was kept very clean. The other guests were the best part of this hostel, and the relaxed atmosphere really facilitated getting to know other people.

Overall, this hostel was good. However, the staff did seem a bit put off by questions we had and some things (like a yogurt parfait) that they advertised, we unavailable. There is not much nearby, and is relatively far from the city center, but it was fine for our 1 night stay before flying home the next day.
This hostel was unclean The staff were very nice however
