Costa Rica Guesthouse, San Jose
Average rooms, good breakfast
This place was average. I was excited and had higher expectations based on the reviews. Staff were not very friendly. We stayed in a private room, nothing special. The room was also right next to the train that made lots of noise which made it hard to rest. The bathroom also had s really bad smell, must be the pipes. Breakfast was fantastic! They make a good gallo pinto here. Overall average stay. Cheap if you just need a place to sleep, but not so much rest.

Great place for me !!!
There computers had issues / meaning not running the day I was leaving - but I had my own access - no printer for boarding passes. Used my iPhone to check-In my flight. The TV room for eating breakfast was great -- I am not a smoker - I was happy smokers went outside but poor ventilation in their atrium to remove that smoke. Love the hotel being on hte corner because taxies and Uber could always find. I shoud have asked about laundry service. I don't know if sheets were changed - I guess you would have to ask - but I was at my friends house a lot. Great for an address to put down on the customs forms when from out of the country because many homes have no triditional address like the USA.
