    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:
