    Great cozy atmosphere and staff. Very clean. Fantastic location - walking distance to parks, and cool bars and restaurants within one of the more metropolitan yet safer neighborhoods on San Jose. Only thing I wasn't 100% happy with - it would be nice if there were locks on the rooms, which there isn't. But the staff will put your belongings in a locked room if you ask.

    No complaints about this hostel. Nice patio area with plants and pool table. Very open and breezy place. Beds are a little wobbly and loud but otherwise everything was great.

    Good location and very helpful staff. I was the only person staying in the dorm room at the time and only 1 other person in the hostel, which is good for a single night but not great if you want to meet other travelers.

    We stayed for one night as a place to sleep before we traveled to the Caribbean coast. We stayed in a dorm which was OK, but there was no lockers. The breakfast served was cereal, coffee and toast.

    A Secure building in the heart of San Jose with a wonderful host(David). This is where the positive comments about this tired establishment ends. This place needs improvements. The beds are extremely uncomfortable and need replacement. Aircon is not provided anywhere in the hostel! The atmosphere in the hostel is dead. A basic Breakfast was provided.
