Great option for a stopover!
Even though I only stayed at Costa Rica Guesthouse for one night, it was a lovely experience and exceeded my expectations. I had one of the private rooms — it was very simple, nothing fancy at all, but it was perfect for my needs and even had access to a little outdoor patio space. Also, everyone there was very friendly and helpful. I'd absolutely recommend this place for quick stopovers in San José!
