Friendly staff... i dont know if I'd recommend San Jose in general, but this place is clean and quiet with some good communal areas. Probably a good place to start off. About a 20-25 minute walk to the city center strip/bus stations.
Very friendly staff that were very helpful and honest! I had a blast in Turriabla. Mostly couples staying in Hostel Del Lis, so its great if you're traveling in a pair or a group...you still have a chance to meet some folks though! Very nice terrace and back yard. Safe area.
Great first place for a solo traveler to meet some folks. Its in a good/safe part of town near university area. Supposedly this is a good area to go to a bar or two as well as a solo traveler and remain safe compared to other parts of san jose. very friendly staff. I made friends with other guests... good pool table, I used the kitchen and theres a nice back yard.
couldn't ask for anything more. great location, friendly sociable environment, and a reasonable price for HK.
