Cleanest hostel you would find in San Jose, Couldn't be in a better location near by banks, supermarkets, main street in San Jose, largest park in San Jose, 10 minutes walk to downtown and 2 blocks away from the bus stop to/from the international airport.

Notice: Some taxi drivers say we are full or that they don't know were we are located, they do this as they would try to take you to another hostel where they get commissions form, so if this happens to you just tell him you have a reservation here, we'll hold the room until you show up.
