I didn't stay at Hostel Toruma. I booked it online and paid a $12.00 deposit but received an email the night before I was due to fly advising Hostel Toruma was having remodelling. And that I was now booked into Hostel Pangea. I wasn't happy because I: 1. Didn’t understand why the website took a booking for Toruma when it wasn’t open. 2. Didn’t want to stay at Hostel Pangea-known as a ‘party hostel’ for young people-wasn't given a choice. 3. Have issues with Pangea service/charges

WE were dooped by this one. We booked a room and payed our deposit online but when we arrived we were told that the hostel was closed for renovations and we had to go elsewhere. this was a huge inconvienince for us seeing as we arrived in san jose at night and it was difficult to find a decent place to stay. i have sent emails to the hotel asking about this mix up and have had no response.
