Great place for single travellers

This is a great place for single travelers as the dormitories are sociable and the shared bathrooms are great. However for couples, there are nicer places to stay that are also better value for money. Best things about my stay were the views from the rooftop balcony where I had breakfast each morning and the bar which was perfect for meeting other travelers.

Super Friendly Staff

the staff is incredibly friendly and super helpful with the bus situation and how to get out of san jose. They even helped us a day we weren't staying there and were just passing through. The only crappy part is our airport shuttle out that we booked through them was 30 minutes late which made for a stressful morning.

Easy check-in, nice separate dorm rooms. Great outdoor bar/lounge. Only complaint is that the pillows were pretty bad, even for a hostel

Hochsicherheitstrakt ohne Fenster und zu hohen Preisen

Der Eingang ist eine riesige Stahltür, wo ein kleines Fensterchen drin ist was aufgeschoben werden kann und nach einem Check mit dem Walkie Talkie wird man dann reingelassen. Die Preise im Hostel für Verpflegung und Getränke sind sehr hoch, es gibt eigentlich keine Fenster und das Hostel ist viel zu groß. Das Hostel ist komplett von Stacheldraht auf den Stahlmauern umgeben und durch den ziemlich unfreundlichen Staff, wirkt das ganze einfach uneinladend und ungemütlich. Eine Küche gibt es auch nicht wenn ich mich richtig erinnere.
