If you need sheets, blankets, covers, bath towel and things for the bedroom I can provide them at not cost, just let me know.
The place is simply but charm and cozy, the people living there respectful, serious, quiet and nice or "pura vida" as Costa Ricans saying. This is a non smoking place, for quiet and calm residents.
Any help you may need about places to visit in the country I will be willing to give you any advice. The room may fit 2 people, using a mattress if one of the bigger rooms are available.
The place is nice as the people too, very well location, safe & clean.

  • This is a great value guest-house for the committed budget traveler. I was only traveler staying there. The others were local Ticos - they were about 1/2 my age. Most were working and there was 1 student. Look for La Puebla, Heredia, CR to find the neighborhood. Hot water shower, kitchen, refrigerators, WiFi, quiet, clean, secure. Met my "comfort" standards. Margoth met me at the University taxi queue and showed me around Heredia before taking me to the guest-house. I enjoyed visiting with 3 of the other occupants that spoke really good English. The guest-house is within easy walking distance (5 - 10 min.) of bus transportation. Plenty of local and "international" restaurants, and shopping close-by. The only "minus" is that there is no outside seating to enjoy the CR weather.

  • Morgoth's house is everything it says in the summary. The house is clean, secure and pleasant. There were four other residents but I didn't see much of them. Margoth appeared once during my week there and gave me helpful advice on local facilities and places of interest to visit. However in her review she said I had an accident in my bed. I would like to qualify that as it could be misunderstood. The bed I was sleeping in was made of wood and quite fragile. While I was sleeping it collapsed and I was cut on the wood splinters. That's not an accident that's a faulty bed.

  • Margoth has been a huge help during our first few weeks living in Heredia. She gave us great directions from San Jose, picked us up from the bus stop and showed us a little bit of town even before taking us to our lovely room that we rented from her. She's very generous with her time, very patient and has even been helping us look for our own place to live long term. The house is well located, is cleared regularly by the lovely Sonia and is filled with a mix of friendly young people. Thanks for everything Margoth!

  • Margoth is the most lovely person! She was always very helpful and so friendly! I even ot to know some of her family and everyone was so nice and welcoming! The other people in the house were all very friendly and quiet. I got to talk to some and they were very helpful with questions as well. Nice and comfortable living! I highly recommend staying at Margoth's house! Thank you for everything!

Property Management, economist.
I like to work with new people everyday, know them, help them and enjoy to show my country. I run my own bussiness which is property management and some real state. I studied economics but I do not work on this anymore, now I dedicated to work less, doing meditation very seriously, taking care of my family. I love to travel so much, love Asia and its culture & foods! I like to read "light" books with nice and inspiring messages! I like to see movies except those with terror, blood or awful crimes, I prefer cartoons than those, I like something that make me laugh and have nice dreams! I like almost any kind of music, except heavy metal. I am an easy living person (do not ask this to my husband, ha, ha!), like to cook, talk, relax, walk in the mountains, have a cup of coffee with a friend. I use to travel in a very cheap way and sharing with people. This is a nice way to really know the culture of a country and enjoy the trip. I like cats very much!, to share with my family and friends, to walk and do light exercise, doing yoga and Tai-Chi, to cook at home, I have been vegetarian for a very long time as well as a Zen meditation practicioner in a Center we have here in my province, Heredia. My saing is: enjoy your life as if it will be your last day on Earth! and I also love this phrase: "To live the experiences that life offer to us is and obligation, to suffer its or enjoy its, is optional!
