Very Good 8.0
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.

Good choice for budget accommodation in San Jose
Reliable hostel conveniently located walking distance from the Tica Bus station with 24/7 check in and check out. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I like the cafeteria on the 3rd floor - good lunch option. Also coffee and tea available 24/7 on the top floor.

Exceptional 10.0
Got a private room and was so much nicer than expected for a hostel. It was bigger than expected that felt like i was in a hotel instead of hostel. It was clean. Only tip is to contact the place in advance especially if your coming late at night as the place is small and reception close early so if your arriving late at night you need to contact them to make sure the security guard is expecting you and have everything prepared for you especially if you dont speak spanish because the guard doesnt speak english.

Good 6.0
Beautiful view but not very clean...
The staff was very helpful, however my sheets, blanket, down comforter, mattress pad and cover smelled very bad. Sweat from the last guest? I don't know if anything was washed but if it was, they didn't use bleach. Anyway, I wasn't able to get to bed until the staff gave me clean sheets, etc. And the blanket was replaced but it had snot on it. It was a bit disgusting so I threw it outside in the hallway. The staff was very friendly but I'd make sure the linens and blankets are sanitized next time, otherwise I couldn't stay there again. Unless the problem is corrected, I'd stay away.

Bit expensive for a hostel but had my own room
When i checked in they asked me for a credit card to pay for my stay, i told them i had already paid through but theysaid they didnt have that, i showed them the receipt and they were still skeptical. Very nice people though, i brought the wrong charger with me and the receptionist let me borrow his for the night. Close to town, shops etc.
