My two friends and I needed a place to stay very last minute in San Jose and Castle Tam welcomed us with open arms. The rooms were reasonably priced, clean, comfortably sized and quiet. At night there was only a little traffic audible and at times the room can be chilly so I would advice requesting more blankets. In the morning you will be greeted by your host and offered a warm meal to start your day (upon request which keeps things fresh).
The hosts and guests were all very amiable. If we had any questions, concerns or inquiries they were ready to answer any questions with a smile. Internet access was readily available but I rarely needed to look up directions or transportation because that info was readily available in the common room or front desk.
The Hostel is near many attractions or is easily accessible by bus or taxi. Crossing streets are always a little tricky in San Jose but nothing is too far a walk if you're alert. The neighborhood felt pretty safe but for piece of mind there is an in-out locked gate.
My friends and I would love to come back if we ever cross into San Jose again. We would certainly recommend the stay.More
