Great hostel. Not a crowded party hostel but it's clean, and the comfort, beds, showers, wifi and breakfast are of high quality.


The staff were really friendly but spoke very little English, this was only an issue due to a mix up with the name on the booking. The area was very noisy, with trains running just below the window and constantly using their horn to alert drivers to thier presence. The windows do not shut all the way which doesnt help with the noise. The bed was comfortable and the room/bathroom was fairly clean. Breakfast is served in the restaurant down stairs and was really tasty.


Friendly staff and very obliging - brought me extra towels and a hairdryer. However, communal lounge and kitchen are open plan in the middle of the bedrooms, so it's very noisy with people watching movies until late at night and talking loudly. Good facilities, and nice restaurant downstairs - breakfast was included and delicious! Linen could be upgraded. Fine for a night or two in San Jose, but who'd want to stay there longer anyway?
