The Space

Located in Barrio Escalante, one of the nicest neighborhoods in San Jose. Just 10-15 minutes away walking from San Jose Downtown and also very close to San Pedro, where the University of Costa Rica is located.
Nice restaurants and bars just a couple of blocks from the apartment. Supermarket and shopping centers (stores, fast food, cinemas) are very close.
The apartment has two bedrooms, one for me and the other one for you! shared bathroom, shower with hot water, small kitchen with fridge and stove, living room area.
Wireless internet also available for free.
About me... easygoing, like to cook, read and sleep as well as to party out. I have a little and friendly dog.
You will be expected to buy and cook your own food.
1 hour by taxi from the Airport and 1 hour and a half if you take the bus service (depending on traffic).

Just ask if you want to know more about...

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had a nice stay at Juanca's house. You can walk to the center in half an hour. He had a comfortable room with cupboards which you can lock. Also he and his dog Sammy are very nice hosts, we went out for dinner. He explained me things about San Jose and helped me with my plans where to go to after San Jose. I would recommend this place as a start of a trip to Costa Rica.

  • As expected, nice little room in a nice neighborhood. The room was clean and the place was quiet. Juanca was a nice host. I just needed a little space to transit to the beach and it was fine. Close to 2 nice restaurants. Thumbs up.

  • Juanca realmente es un muy buen chico, una persona muy simpática y de mucha confianza. Me sentí bien en seguridad en su casa y el barrio, la habitación era bastante comoda. Muchas gracias para llevarme al "Irish Pub", monstrarme el centro y coccinar juntos! Estás el bienvenido en mi casa en Alemania en cualquier momento:)

    Juanca is a really good guy and a very likeable and trustful person. I felt pretty safe at his place and the district, the room was really cosy. Thank you very much for taking me out to the Irish Pub, showing me around the centre and the cooking altogether. You are welcomed in Germany at my place at any time:)

  • Great neighborhood with small restaurants and life in the evening, but not noisy. It's perfectly close to San Jose. 2-3dollar with taxi to town. Juanca is a very nice hard working guy. The room is nice and perfect for the price.

  • Juanca is a very nice host. Friendly, welcoming and helpful! The apartment is also very nice and the bath has hot shower which is very dificult to find in Costa Rica. It is very clos to the city, about 10 minutes walk. The surrondings are nice and you feel safe. I can truely recommend to stay at Juancas.

  • Juan Carlos is a nice guy. He respects your privacy and space. On my first night there he offered me dinner so that I could eat with him and his friend but I was so jet lagged I had to turn down the offer.

    This is a perfect location for exploring downtown San Jose. It is about 10 minutes walking to main Avenue. Just following the train tracks. Unfortunately, while I was there most of the shops and places on the street close to the apartment were closed for the holidays.

    A very basic room, pull out sofa bed, great Wifi connection, secure environment. This room is for people on a budget who do not want all the comforts of a hotel or B&B and plan to be out of the room for most of the time.

    Juan Carlos es un buen tipo. Él respeta su privacidad y espacio. En mi primera noche allí me ofrecieron la cena para que yo pudiera comer con él y su amigo, pero yo estaba tan jet lag que tuve que rechazar la oferta.

    Una habitación muy básica, sofá cama, conexión Wifi gran entorno seguro. Esta habitación es para personas con un presupuesto que no quieren todas las comodidades de un hotel o B & B y planea estar fuera de la habitación para la mayoría de las veces.

    Esta es una ubicación perfecta para explorar el centro de San José. Está a unos 10 minutos andando de la avenida principal. Sólo siguiendo las vías del tren. Desafortunadamente, mientras que yo estaba allí la mayoría de las tiendas y lugares en la calle cerca del apartamento estaban cerrados por las vacaciones.

  • Now that I know Juanca I will stay with him again. the place is nice and it is located in a nice location. I will miss him and Sammy his dog. He make me feel like I never left home. Definitely I recommend his place in a heart beat. I will always be grateful for the way the treat me and made me feel. Juanca if you ever going to my city please call me and you will have a place to stay there.
    Thanks a lot
    Pura vida
