    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.

    On Monday, June 11th we had orientation at Maximo Nivel, which is the cultural center that sets up our homestays and volunteer experiences. I was feeling a little overwhelmed that day with all of the new faces, information, and all of the unknowns. (Happy to say I'm feeling much better now!) I learned a few new cultural nuances--like" don't slam doors, anywhere" and "when greeting someone, go for the kiss on their right cheek", so lean ...
