The hostel is in a neat old Victorian house with awesome decorations and paintings. It has a large pool table and outdoor kitchen and patio area. Downsides...I thought the dorm room was realllllly dirty and each dorm room has a private bath which I doubt gets cleaned regularly because it was grimy foresure. It's also a bad layout having a small bathroom in close courters with the bunk beds. I thought the staff was pretty unhelpful. They were nice if course, but not helpful. There is a pizza restaurant attached so if you arrive in late at night it's a decent option if you aren't into the fast food chains nearby. Overall, I would not stay here again and would recommend other hostels if staying in San Jose.
