I was all ready to give this hotel a not-so-good review after my first night in this hotel because the room was SO noisy and bright, but after dealing with it for many hours, the staff were nice and let me stay in another room for the night. Most of the staff are friendly, although some are not quite as helpful as others. The hotel is very basic, and to be honest for slightly more money (an extra $20) you can get much nicer accommodation in downtown San Jose. Breakfast is basic, but there is endless tea and coffee and you can buy cheap beer behind reception. Staying in a group was decent value for money, but I wouldn't recommend it if travelling alone. The restaurant across the road though is one of the best I went to in San Jose and is a good selling point for this hotel. Another warning is that there is no air conditioning, which is perfectly fine if you are on your own, but makes the room very stuffy with a group of people. But all in all, a good basic hotel if you are transiting through San Jose, and good value for money if you are on a budget for your holiday.
