    Great hostel! Location is about a 5 minute walk from most things (other than cool workout park across the street), and was only about 1/3-1/2 filled… but that’s way more popular than other hostels in San Jose right now! Kitchen is a little small & only 2 stove burners work, but everyone is super friendly & such a great value for the price. Very clean, easy to find, and nice social areas, with a pretty solid free coffee + breakfast for the price. Will definitely come again!

    Great hostel. Your typical, quality hostel environment. I wish that the breakfast was more than just day-old watermelon, white bread, and coffee. Maybe I didn't get up early enough. I'll stay here again next time I'm in San Jose.

    Pretty cool place near lots of good restaurants and a nice supermarket this is a nice part of town overall. It's is an open house which I suppose means people live there to? The hostel has a young male party vibe if your in a dorm you may be woken up all night by people coming and going.While I stayed there, after 3am was quiet time to put it in perspective. But the only issue I really had was the 2 dogs that stay there they bark, alot, and whine, alot.They have a nice guitar I'd stay again.

    Not bad. No running sink water in my dorm but very cheap rooms with private beds and close to lots of good food and groceries.

    Such a great hostel, dorms are great with curtains so you have a lot of privacy compared to other hostels, also a little shelf with a lamp and a plug socket in the cubby hole. A few older men who are long term stays gave it a slightly weird vibe at times but didn’t effect overall stay as were all friendly. Met great people and felt really safe, in such a nice neighbourhood with great bars and restaurants that feels really safe if you don’t want to go into central San José.

    Great hostel for a night. Bathrooms are bad and dirty, beds are decent and there are good sized lockers. The free breakfast was just a pineapple. The transport service from the hostel was very good and they were on time.

    The host was super nice but OH MY GOD. There is as loud music and partying until 3am. It was horrendous. I couldn’t sleep at all after a long trip. There were spiders on the corner of the beds too.

    When I arrived there were 4 people sitting around without masks on. The lady checked me into a six bed when I paid for a five bed. in the room she offered me a bed with dirty sheets on it that she was going to give me new sheets for… So I said something to her. The room I ended up and had no lock on the door only a locker. This was quite a dirty hostel in the pictures make it look much nicer than it is.
