Description

Nice hostel and very friendly manager Warren let us park-up in the car-park and sleep in our truck. This is the only place we found in San Jose that we could fit into. There are wires across the gate. We are 3.3m high and we only just got under them by lifting them up with a stick. Any taller won't fit in. Once you're in, there's plenty of space in the car park for up to med/large sized rigs (not for very big rigs). Good bathrooms/hot showers in the hostel. Small chill-out area out the back with hammocks in trees. Good wifi most of the time (bit slow at peak times). Electric plug-in available but we didn't need it (good solar). Peaceful place. Great location in nice part of town, close to nice cafés bars & restaurants. $15pn for 2 people & truck.

Latest Check-Ins

Came for two nights, stayed five!
Two in a campervan was $20US per night, showers sometimes cold, sometimes lukewarm, sometimes almost hot, probably depends on the time of day. Free breakfast every morning 7am to 9am, very chill atmosphere, super nice inside.

Warning: A guest staying inside the hostel had his phone stolen while we were there. A woman walked right in, snatched it from where it was sitting, unsupervised, then walked right out.

Fun fact: The hostel building was the home of the Costa Rican president in the 1940s!

Only good vibes at this place. Superh friendly and welcoming staff. Full of travelers almost everyday. I went there for just one night and spent three. Two nights sleeping in my camper and one more in a private room with private bathroom. 10$ 2 people sleeping in your camper and you can use bathroom, showers , power , water and kitchen. Also free coffee and free breakfast. You can’t beat that. Only con is the parking lot is too small. Only regular cars. No big rigs definitely . 10$ pp if you want to sleep in dorms , 35$ in a room with shared bathroom and 50$ room with private bathroom. I waited until late afternoon to ask if they have a room. I took a private one down from 50$ to 30$. Use your bargain skills. Also they have a restaurant next door with great tacos.

Second time here. Still reliably comfortable, friendly and welcoming. The driveway is a tight fit (width and height) but they will help and cars will be moved. Once in, stay and enjoy the hospitality and the neighborhood. Lots of Uber’s circle the area. Easy trip to downtown, shopping, malls and hospitals. Paid $15 per night. Also good laundry.
