    This is a super-clean hotel less than 15 minutes walk from the museums in San Jose. Not a party hostel, which is what I wanted. Rooms were clean and the dorm was spacious enough for all of us...lockers under bunks were great to have. The owner is a wealth of information, and I ended up talking with her for over an hour about the possibilities CR has to offer. The kitchen is nice and managed to fit five people cooking in there...additional indoor and outdoor eating areas. Breakfast was very tasty

    Extremely well located and super chill vibes hostel. In the best neighborhood of san jose, supermarket is less than 1min walk and there are heaps of cafes, bars and restaurants within 5mins plus a shopping mall. Delicious pancakes and fruit for breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff. Fast internet. Great common areas including a pool table and netflix tv area and the most well equipped kitchen. Private room could use a clothes hanger rail. Also need a washing line outside. Thanks we will return!

    Nice staff, lots of common areas, free pancakes and fruit in the morning, large lockable storage under the bed, great garden area and view of the city. Not too far from the main street with groceries and restaurants, and about a 20min walk to downtown. I ended up extending my stay.

    Stayed here for a night during the off-season - wasn’t much going on, but to be expected. The rooms were comfy and clean, the facilities were nice. The staff was incredibly helpful in arranging transportation for me and waiting for me despite a plane delay. Very friendly overall.

    Great hostel, felt very safe. Despite being a bit farther from city center, it’s an easy 20-25 minute walk. It was a bit quiet but that’s given we were visiting during off season
