Hostel is in Great City Location
The hostel is in a great location of San Jose in the middle of everything. Rooms could use some improvements and maybe more services and a better breakfast in the morning. Overall it is in a great location and a good place if you're on a budget.

Fair4.0
Not good if you want to sleep
Personally I didn't enjoy my stay here. There was a lot of young people there on tours who partied late into the night or started singing and drinking at 6am. There was no plug sockets in the rooms and the wifi was unreliable. They gave you ear plugs for the extremely noisy train near by but they hardly helped. Nobody locked the rooms either. The person who organises tours was helpful and I went on some good trips but I wouldn't stay there again or recommend it to anyone.

Decent hostel, great staff.
A decent hostel, good staff. The actual hostel....bathrooms were dirty, bedroom fumigated recently. Not my first choice, but a great place for the money and even better if you have traveling friends.

Fun backpackers Hostel
I had a great time. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a bar with Happy Hour to meet other travelers and private rooms if you don't feel like bunking up with 6 other people!
