“A lot of fun (and very cheap)”
Reviewed 28 September 2009

This was the first time I stayed in a hostel (I usually stay in hotels but was on a stricter budget this trip). There is a really nice atmosphere as all the guests tend to congregate in the lounge area and garden - I met a lot of travellers, which is the benefit of a hostel rather than a hotel. There aren't TVs in the rooms (there's one in the lounge), but they do have private bathrooms and in every other way it is like a hotel - just half the price and a lot more fun. Breakfast was included in the price (they even made it for me when I was leaving at 5am to go to the airport).
Everything was very clean and a lot of effort had clearly gone into the decorating the building - all the rooms are painted bright colours and there is a city mural in the lounge!

We happened upon this hostel simply because it was across the street from the car rental place, but it turned out to be a great place to stay. Friendly and helpful folks and the place has a really interesting central "hang out" area. The hostel has lots of food options close by and it is on the road to the airport. The rooms are simple but nice with the upstairs rooms having balconies. All in all I enjoyed staying there much more than the other two places I tried in San Jose.
