Liked: The hostel is great for a safe, clean, relaxing stay. The best part of the hostel is Paula, who will take care of everything for the travelers and make sure they have a safe trip in San Jose. She is the most helpful, considerate and knowledgeable hostel owner I had during the trip.

Liked: Comfortable couches in the lounge room. Great if you just want to lay around reading. Staff helpful with bus times ect.

Disliked: Staff always speaking very loudly, playing music loudly 8am-10pm. You have to ring the bell to get in and out so you feel like you are inconviencing them.

Dear Rebecca; The commun areas are for socialize; so sorry if you think that is not allowed to talk, and music is on during regular hours. Its NEVER a problem to open the door to anybody...service is our plan. Is incredible that people think that you are "disturbing" when we actually request to our guest to ring the bell in order to keep the house safe. XXX Cheers! The owner!

Liked: Security

Disliked: The kitchen will be locked from 9:30pm til 8am, meaning everything you put in the fridge you wont be able to get. The free water is also in the kitchen and wont be available during the entire evening. The door is always locked, which is a good thing for security. But everytime you leave they have to unlock and make you feel very uneasy because you 'disturbed' them. This by the way is the overall feeling you have in that hostel. Everything has to be under their control, you can not hang your clothes outside where you want or they get really mad if you use the light switch without asking...?! Wtf, why do you run a hostel if you don't want anyone around you?


The property's response is

Kitchen rules and sharing rules are necessary, specially for certain people that left her underwear in commun areas like chairs or tables..please Be realistic! You didnt read rules, never asked for help, but even so you never disturbed us. If we dont keep doors close you will complain about safety; so swearing is the best weapon for childish behaviour. If you cannot or dont know how to use the lights; why you dont ask for help? We love people, that actually behave as people. X

Liked: Clean, nice staff. It is our of the way for seeing anything in san jose but it is nice if you are just spending one night and don't want to be at a party hostel.

Disliked: exterior door is always locked and you need the lady to come unlock it. This is really annoying if she is not around. You literally cannot get out. They should change the type of lock so you can exit the property without needing a key.
