    CR Guesthouse is a gem. It's a straight 12-block walk to the market, it's near lots of sodas, restaurants and bars, and a 20-minute walk to Hospital Clìnica Bìblica which gives you rapid Covid19 results with in a few hours for the most affordable price you'll find 24/7. The rooms are large, bed comfortable. Coffee and a nice selection of tea in the lobby. Guests are generally quiet and respectful. Staff excels at being helpful. All rooms are named after CR landmarks which is sweet.

    Not a hostel, no kitchen or vibe. But cheap for splitting a private room, beds were decent, staff helpful with any questions. Liked the area.

    I had a private room and bath that was very clean. I stayed here for one night after my arrival in San Jose and left early the following morning. Overall, it was a safe place to sleep for the night, which is all I needed.

    We needed a last minute hostel so most were booked up. This hostel had a bed, good security, and was close to some good restaurants. Overall, it was nice, but nothing spectacular. I’d still recommend it for a nights sleep. Not too social.

    It offers good value for money if you need to lay over in San Jose - decent size room, huge bed (but a bit lumpy) and private bathroom. It’s conveniently located for the Tracopia bus station and is easy to walk into central San Jose. It doesn’t have any atmosphere - but if all you need is a bed for the night (as we did) then it works. Staff aren’t all particularly helpful - especially if you’ve booked your own onward transportation.
