Great place and friendly staff! It was clean, had a nice pool, pool table, and felt very safe inside the compound. I'd definitely stay here again my next time in San Jose. Lots of buses pass outside the front doors and you are in walking distance of a lot of cool places in the city. However, I personally didn't feel safe going outside the compound at night alone. But I think that the entire city is like that and not necessarily the place where the hostel is.
