    Costa Rica Guest House was perfectly suited for our San Jose “pass through”. It is multicultural from Europe and the Americas - and multigenerational- from babies to seniors. Lots of families. Claudia and the staff are great and multilingual and keep everyone happy. Good breakfast and a safe place.

    We spent 2 nights here at the tail end of a 10-day trip to Costa Rica. In short, this place offers outstanding value for money. Our room was large and comfortable, though not plush, w king bed. There was a standing fan that we didn't end up needing to use. It's an easy walk to the museums and attractions we were interested in. Breakfast was fine - nothing fancy, but several options were offered. We booked a ride to SJO ($27 USD for 2 people that worked out great. Overall, a win!

    Good breakfast and cheap enough for a second plate if you enjoy it that much like me. Really helpful staff at the front desk and unlimited free coffee is always a bonus!

    The room was full of ants, flies and giant cockroaches... What is worst was the attitude of the receptionist. The most grumpy lady I have probably ever meet in my life.. This place is the far worse place I stayed during my Central America travels.. don't even consider giving them a chance..
