Hostel has a pool, upstairs bar and restaurant, great patio overlooking the city, and clean rooms/bathrooms. It is in a very sketchy part of town, but a convenient walk to a bus terminal. (Most people just get in and get out of San Jose anyway.) We stayed there for a night coming in and a night heading out of the...

This hostel was so much fun! My friends and I only stayed for one night but it was an incredible night! We played billiards, swam in the pool, played card games, got to know other travelers, and drank some good drinks! The people who come through this hostel are a blast! Go to party, have a good time, and get...

Quite a cheap airport shuttle at $11 as long as there are other people taking it as well. Walking distance from some of the main bus stops as well. Rooms aren’t great – some of the bunk beds don’t have ladders so you just have to jump up. No power outlets either so you have to wait in the communal...

I've stayed at a few hostels in San Jose and this one is my favorite for a few reasons. Number one is the location. You can walk to several good bars and restaurants in the area. Great shopping in the area too. Plus it's not far from bus statins, so getting away is easy. I also like that they have...
