Dodgy outside, lovely inside.
Getting to the location is a bit dodgy and we were told to walk down the main street with more traffic/people to get into the centre. Once inside the place is lovely!! I had a private bathroom, which was nearly as big as the bedroom!!

Some new bedding needed
We have stayed there more than a dozen times and were happy with the accommodation but this time the bed in the 'Rincon de la Vieja' room was terrible ! Please change !

El personal es bastante amable. Muy barato y muy cerca de San Jose. Tenía mis dudas sobre los baños compartidos, pero al llegar los encontré muy limpios. Me gusto que te regalan café o té en el lobby y si quieres comer hay muchas opciones cerca para ir caminando o pedir por Uber. En general muy bien. Volvería a hospedarme aquí definitivamente.
