Humility, Order and clean in the house, smoke in your room or outside if was the case, and smile. Open mind
clean room, cold shower, big delicious breakfast (it was free for me, but at first she wanted $6.. it was confusing), gregarious host (friendly but overwhelmingly loud :)), very close to bus stop for the city center (location is not great, unless you like big expensive malls with only western shops and food). overall, worthwhile place to stay for two quick nights in San Jose.
The room although without a fan was secure with a decent bed and private bath with a suicide shower. Linens and towels were clean and so was the room. The host was extremely helpful, pleasant and kind. I needed a place in an emergency since my flight had gotten in so late. Without Lucrecia, I would have been truly lost! She made me the BEST breakfast I had during my entire stay in Costa Rica! Thank God I knew Spanish!
Our stay at Lucrecia's was absolutely wonderful. She was by far the best host we have ever had. Her and her daughter were so kind and assisted my boyfriend and I in everything. I highly recommend staying at their lovely home. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom is large and towels are provided. The kitchen is lovely, clean, and we were able to cook all our meals comfortably. The neighbourhood is safe and located close to the grocery store. The bus is also near by so it is easy to access downtown San Jose and we took a day trip to the Poas Volcano with little difficulty. Lucrecia is always willing to help and assist you in any way you need, as well as give you suggestions to do in the city. Overall it was a comfortable stay and Lucrecia definitely made our trip extra special.
Lucrecia is a wonderful host! She made us feel like home and enjoyed sharing her house with us. A super friendly woman and a great cook, she made us the best breakfast we had in Costa Rica. Staying in her house was a great experience. Would most definitely come back to that room next time I visit Costa Rica.
Thank you for your hospitality Lucrecia!
Estamos muy agradecidos con Lucrecia, la atención de ella a los viajeros es realmente agradable, ella se esfuerza por ayudarte en todo lo que puede. Las indicaciones que nos dio para llegar fueron muy útiles y precisas, la casa esta bien en todo sentido, ubicación, tamaño, aseo. Gracias Lucrecia, volveremos. Luis y Claudia
An amazing host! Lucrecia reminded me so much of my grandma. She was so loving, so caring, so warm, and very compassionate. Her food was so so delicious! Her daughters are great! Such an extraordinary family. I will definitely recommend Lucrecia's home to anyone. Very quiet and safe neighborhood. Lucrecia walked everywhere with me, and showed me around. I really enjoyed my stay at Lucrecia's!
Our Host took about 20 minutes to come to the door because she was not well from some allergy. Another tennant tried to wake her up. We weren't even sure we had the right address as it was hard to find and we thought she forgot about us arriving. However, ALL of San Jose is hard to drive around as they have no signs - This is not the safest feeling area I've been too. The host was a lovely person and made us a nice coffee - if you don't like dogs you won't like these ones as they are not groomed very well and there was cat food morsels on the table so it's not as clean as I would keep a place if I were to rent. We never actually stayed because she uses bleach to clean and the odour was so overpowering we both felt quite sick so when we reached our destination for that evening the hosts there asked us if we wanted to stay with them and then had some wine and then we did not go back but sent her a message. I suggest getting GPS if you are driving! This would be a very very last option place for us in a tight squeeze but windows open and it doesn't feel too safe! No parking inside either so you're vehicle is at risk.

About the Host, Lucrecia Y Silvia
Mi nombre es Lucrecia, soy costarricense de nacimiento, pero viví muchos años en Guatemala donde forme una familia hace ya mas de 15 años. Puedo decir que me encanta conocer gente nueva, durante mucho tiempo conocí no solo Guatemala, si no que también estuve por varios lugares de Europa y casi todo América, lo que me dejo demasiadas hermosas experiencias y por supuesto mente abierta para conocer nuevas culturas y visiones de mundo.
Soy un espiritu libre y sincero, me encantan los paseos y pasarla bien con amistades y familia, tengo que aceptar que ya desde hace varios años comencé una adicción al karaoke, por lo que no se asusten de recibir una invitación mía a animarse a cantar.
Mi hija Silvia, que también vive en la casa, actualmente estudia antropología en la Universidad de Costa Rica, es una persona muy amable y le encanta conocer nuevas personas. Ademas, frecuentemente le gusta dar paseos al rededor del país, tan solo con una peque;a mochila de viaje, por lo que es buena dando consejos de lugares.
Ademas, en la casa también vive Toño y otra hija (Mariajose)
