  • The staff at the hostel are all lovely. The whole place has a very relaxed feel, there is not a great deal of private space which makes it a great place to meet other travellers and socialise. It is always very clean and feels very safe. The area is close to lots of local shops and restaurants/cafes, as with everywhere in San Jose I wouldn't walk around at night time unless I was in a big group. I would definitely recommend it as a place to stay and would happily come back here again :-)

  • The hostel owner, David, is really helpful and kind. Great location near by downtown only walking for about 10 minutes to the Mercado Central.

  • We were only here for one night as a place to stay before heading to the airport the next morning. They have airport transfer, but you have to book it 24 hours in advance, which didn't know. And their shuttle is VERY expensive. We saved quite a bit by walking up the street to a take a cab. The hostel itself was very nice, clean for the most part, with a great atmosphere. The beds were not very comfortable and it was VERY loud. But, was affordable and ok for one night.

    First our taxi is very cheap, the rate is $18 US dollars for one person, a normal taxi outside charge between 25-30 US dollars, the problem is the people like this (megan Tippetts) wants everything free! and sorry but extra services are not free
