Hostels in San Jose

by ec3-globetrotter

Hi,

I was trying to find some hostels in San Jose but did not have any luck so far. I tried Google as wellas hostelword.com but did not find any. Are there actually hostels in San Jose? And if yes does anyone have some informations?

thanks

Do you have to actually stay in San Jose proper?
The closest I could find is in Palo Alto, which is about a 15-20 minute train ride into Downtown San Jose. Palo Alto is a beautiful town with a lot going on in its Downtown. $2.25 one-way on Caltrain. http://www.caltrain.org/
Or, you could stay at the one in Santa Cruz. It's a really cool little beach town, but it's something like an hour bus ride into San Jose.

So, there is not a single hostel in San Jose? That's strange for a city with nearly a million inhabitants.

San Jose really isn't a tourist destination at all. I find it kind of strange as well that there are no hostels at all, but there are other cities that are like this. For instance, the Inland east of LA (San Bernardino, Riverside, etc.) doesn't seem to have any hostels despite having a metro population of well over 1 million, but there are hostels in nearby cities.
This is what I typically use for hostels though. I've found it to be the most reliable and comprehensive:

Travel Tips for San Jose

San Jose Sharks

by Shaft28

My absolute favorite past time in San Jose is going to a Sharks game. Get parking downtown, grab a beer and dinner any any of the places downtown and walk to the game.
The crown may not be technically hocky savvy as other towns, but they make up for it with enthusiasm. Dressing up as Elvis for Halloween at a Sharks game. Had the whole upper deck chanting for me as I drunkly gave the trademark karate kicks and passed out red scarves to the ladies.

Kayaking in Lexington Resevoir

by Anthro

There are several lakes and county parks where you can bring in non-motorized boats, canoes, or kayaks. Recently, I went kayaking in Lexington Resevoir. Surrounded by the Santa Cruz Mountains, this was a very quiet and isolated spot to cruise around. There were a few people fishing, but that was about it. The water was a clear greenish-blue, and it is a good size place to kayak around for hours. There are no parking or lake-use fees currently, but with budget cuts, that might change in the future. There is a boat launch area when the water levels aren't too low, otherwise, you'll have to carry your vessel for a little ways. Bring plenty of water as there are only portable toilets.

Little Saigon or Vietnamtown

by Ewingjr98

About 90,000 people of Vietnamese decent live in San Jose... that 9 percent of the city's total population. This is said to be the largest population of Vietnamese outside of Vietnam anywhere in the world.

The heaviest concentration of Vietnamese businesses in San Jose is located south of downtown along Story Road between Kelley Park and McLaughlin Ave. Another large cluster of Vietnamese businesses is nearby on Tully Road. The Viet Museum is located in Kelly Park just off Sentry Road near the city's Municipal Stadium. Here you will find numerous little restaurants packing small shopping centers.

I first heard of this neighborhood when a big fight erupted over naming the neighborhood "Little Saigon" or a potentially less confrontational name like Vietnamtown. I have been to Vietnam and enjoyed the food and culture, so I wanted to visit the area and see what all the buzz was about. When we attended an event in nearby Municipal Stadium, I had to make a small detour and check out this unique neighborhood. I was amazed at the huge number of restaurants here, but I didn't get a chance to do anything other than eat a light dinner.

Drive-To Bookstore

by nomadig about Barnes & Noble

Barnes & Noble bookstore in San Jose seems to be in middle of nothing, at least from an European perspective. It is located next to car dealers and other semi-industrial stores.

The best way to get to the store is take a car. You can also walk from Santana Row, if you are not afraid of walking more than a mile.

The bookstore is quite typical Barnes & Noble store; well stocked and comparatively inexpensive (at least with the current currency rates). My personal favourite section is photography technique that has far more books than in my local shops.

Transportation Options

by cwest03

When traveling around San Jose you have a few options. Your best bet is to get around by car but if you don't have that luxury you still have a few choices. San Jose and the South Bay Area has a pretty decent system of busses, trains and light rail. This system doesn't match that of bigger east coast or European cities but it will get you where you're going. The public transportation is affordable, clean and safe. For more information on routes and schedules see the Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority (VTA) home page.
