    I wish our room had a fan but this place was very clean and I felt safe the whole time. The free pancake breakfast looked great! Good location was able to walk around UCR and 2nd Ave.

    Only stayed one night, but location was good. Staff were super friendly and the owner made awesome pancakes for breakfast. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean although it looks like it could do with a bit of an update. Overall really nice stay.

    Relaxed place. Nice and clean and they served pancakes every morning. Definitely not for parties as the hostel shuts down at 10pm. Would have liked the staff to follow covid protocols but no one was wearing masks. Also they were not very helpful with tours.

    The hostel was very chill but not too social. Lights are off at 10 pm sharp. There is also not too much to do in the area. The staff was really nice and the pancakes for breakfast are delicious! Also the artwork around the hostel is beautiful.

    Very Good

    Bathrooms are clean, showers with good pressure and hot water. Delicious pancake in the morning :) The reception wasn’t the best when we arrived after a loong bus ride.. for some reason the receptionist didn’t want to give us the wifi password before we checked in, even though we needed it exactly to check the currency rates and decide how to pay for the hostel. The whole thing was a bit awkward and I thought he was quite rude, but afterwards he turned out to be all right. Wouldn’t stay again.

    I only stayed one day / partial night as I had to be at the airport. The location is San Pedro neighborhood not necessarily downtown San Jose and not walking distance near the downtown San josé sites. The building is old but clean, owner is very nice and helpful. All male staff. Not a good place to meet people if staying longer than 1 day. I had mixed feelings about this location as I would not stay again but for the purpose and the price it was perfect. Taxi service was great!! USE IT!!

    Not a good social environment and the building/beds seem very old. The price was the only upside of this hostel for me.
