    We read several reviews for San Jose hostels before coming, and this place seemed cool. It was fine for one night, but a very funky place. It wasn't that clean, and the bunk beds were tiny.

    ... walked into the seating area of the theater I was reminded of the old Chief Theater in Colorado Springs. The ornate decorations, the paintings on the ceiling, the multi- levels of box seating all reminded me of the Chief.

    The theater is not only a show-piece for tourists. It is still a functioning theater with many performances each year.

    The level of detailed workmanship was evident in even the most mundane things; the ...
