        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.

        ... Armando spoke with him and figured out that I could not get fuel today. Something about the fuel being contaminated, and the earliest I could get fuel would be tomorrow afternoon.
