Well organized, clean, and well designed hostel in a neighborhood away from the center of San Jose.

Very Good8.0
80% of a resort at the price of a hostel
The private room was VERY large and nice for the price ($23 at the time). It did not have a king bed or Wifi in the room as advertised but we were told that was a problem with our room only, which I totally believe because we were the last room on the hall and there was wifi like 10 feet closer to the general area. Also, while they were cleaning the other rooms one day we could see that they did indead have kings so... benifit of the doubt, they were probably just short a king room for some reason. Plus, the general quality of the hostel easily made up for those minor issues; it’s pretty dope. Biggest issue imo was that the jacuzzi was not turned on (jets on but it was cold) and both the nicer downstairs lounge and the bar were not open during our stay. Again though, at that price, for those rooms (think like midrange resort hotel room), 10/10 would stay again.
