Quiet hostel with lovely people. Family stay. The location of the hostel is not very central but a bus station is close by. The breakfast is included, simple but good.

I really liked the location of this hostel because it was in a very safe neighborhood west of town. There is a large park with running trails nearby which was great because San Jose is a very big city. The owner is very knowledgeable about safe walking routes, bus routes, etc. The coffee was the best hostel coffee I have had and the breakfast is toast and jam. My recommendation for the hostel is to have keys for the front gate. I did not like having to ring the bell to be let in each time.
