    The beds were so comfy, they had blankets and a sheet to! In so many places we haven't had space to put stuff when we sleep but these beds had a whole shelf per bed in the dorm. Everything was so clean as well, really impressed. The top floor was an open common room with a kitchen area and seating, a pool table, unlimited popcorn after 6, a TV which had Netflix, youtube etc, football table, endless free tea/coffee and a tour desk. We only stayed for 2 nights as San Jose was a stop off point for us but they made us feel really welcome and there was a lot of information about tours you could do from San Jose as well as stuff to do within the city like the free walking tour. Downtown was about 25 mins walk and there was a nice park which had pop up street food stalls and sports on the days that we were there.

    The kitchen area was very small so you really had to pick your timing right to start cooking. However there is a little restaurant on the floor below that is super super cheap! The breakfast that is included is simplistic: cereals, toast, coffee etc but we managed and there are a few nice coffee shops opposite if you did want something more.

    very clean, modern hostel, with exceptionally friendly and welcoming staff shared space is large and contains table tennis, table football and pool table. free coffee and tea

    I would have preferred a curtain around the dorm bed and for the size of the facility the kitchen is very small.

    Clean, good breakfast

    The water in shower room is blocked super easily. To be honest one shower and toilet together is a bit not enough for 10 ppl in the dorm
