I stayed a couple nights at Aldea Hostel in July of 2010 and it was great! The staff/owner was extremely friendly and so helpful. The hostel itself is very nice, clean, and well kept up. There is a large area to hang out in with a huge tv and the kitchen is also nice and well equipped to cook in. If you're looking to travel on a budget it's nice to find a hostel that you can cook your own food in, and you definitely can at Aldea Hostel! Also it was probably the cleanest hostel I stayed in on my trip. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well decorated and comfortable. It's also in a nice part of San Jose. I would recommend this hostel to anyone- you'll save money without giving anything up!
