Although we only stayed for one night, we felt very much at home in Paula's apartment. Paula was a wonderful hosts and gave great recommendations. Would definitely book again!

Like others before me have noted, Paula has a uniquely charming energy, and that's worth the stay alone. She was really communicative in the lead up to my stay, which I found helpful. The location of the apartment is fantastic, as it's a minute's walk away from all the bars and restaurants in the Barrio Escalante neighbourhood, which, for my tastes, was the one I'd most like to hangout in. Highly recommended :)

Paula is amazing, I feel at home there. The best testimony I can give is if I visit San Jose again, I will still choose here. Private and clean room, good resteraunts and a small super market is within 3 minutes walk, easy to move around. Paula also invite me to her yoga class and I loved it.

Paula is a kind and welcoming host. Here home is beautiful, with a lot of well placed and interesting details. At her place you feel like you are at home. You are allowed to use the kitchen, washer and so on and you can also join the yoga classes if you feel like doing something great for your body and mind. The neighborhood is perfect, since it's pretty quiet, but you have all the trendy bars and restaurants in walking distance! I enjoyed my stay at Paulas home and would recommend it to any of my friends!

Paula's place was amazing!! From the moment I arrived she helped me feel right at home, giving me a tour of the house even though I arrived just before her yoga class started. The yoga class was excellent and I was able to meet a lot of lovely people in it. The room was very spacious and comfortable. I slept very well in the bed and I had everything I needed in the room. There was even a hammock and a television, although I didn't watch it. I felt very comfortable there and appreciated having my own private space. There is a door at the entrance to the room and it is a completely independent space above the rest of the house. The studio is beautiful and the yoga classes are excellent. The kitchen has everything you would need and there is a great area next to it for eating and socializing. The bathroom was large and the shower had hot water and everything was easy to use. The location was excellent, in what I think is the best part of San Jose, near parque Francia and close to everything that's good on the east side. Paula is a wonderful host, and was so kind and thoughtful. I had all the privacy I could want, and could easily come and go without disturbing anyone. She was also readily available to help me with any questions I had, and was a pleasure to talk to. I really recommend this space, as it is a great find in San Jose. Thank you Paula for everything!
