10/10 Exceptional

Rodolfo was amazing at front desk- and Memo(sp?)as well. Bed was firm and everything clean. Just a great place to stay! Highly recommend! I missed my bus and hadn’t got a SIM card yet and Rodolfo helped me with phone calls etc. And Mia- the hotel pup is so sweet

My First Choice Of Hostel In San Jose
I go to San Jose several times a year and i have been on this hotel/hostel twice now. Their shared room is very clean, beds are comfortable and it is unlike other hostels i have been too. Best thing is their very affordable rate that even includes breakfast. Highly recommended.
View from the 5th floor (Common Room)
The common room which is very spacious by the way.
Love their walls..
You can hang-out and watch TV if you dont want to play games.

6/10 Good

Hostel was cool but the security man tried to Kiss me on the mouth and grabbed me where he should not be grabbing. I was a solo young female traveler and on my first trip. I didn’t know who to tell because he was the only one there. It’s been three days and I still have anxiety about it.

2/10 Poor

It could have been a good stay...
It would have been a good stay except for... I walked in on the housekeeper going through my things. When I walked in she was shocked. She was trying to deny it. Saying she thought I was in a different bed and pointed to a random one with nothing on it. My bed had personal items on it, so it was obvious I was using it. She tried to "make" my bed by pulling up the blanket (extremely badly) over things I had on my bed and nothing else. I yelled at her to get out. Which she did, but she didn't even close the door. I quickly went through my things. I was missing the money I had on my bed. A 10 mil Colones note. On check out, I told the person at the front desk, but all they said was "I'll talk to her. Happy New Rear." A very disappoint response. No apology or attempt to make it better. Aside from the staff, the room was stuffy and smelly with no air flow or air conditioning. But it was clean and the breakfast was fine. I liked the entertainment area. Overall, stay somewhere else.

Good value for money
Really well-located hostel. You can take a public bus directly from an airport and save some money. The hostel doesn't have air-con which can be a problem for some.
