It is pretty simple. You are allowed to use all the apartment areas (except my room), I only ask you clean after yourself, specially washing your dishes. Also I will not provide you with food, but if you need to use anything from the kitchen, you are welcome as long as you have the courtesy of asking in advance. You can smoke in the property, but not inside the house.

Staying at JC you get a friendly host, a very nice place (the photos don't do it justice) in a hip location full of excellent high end restaurants

Really great for a budget stay, good location. Juan Carlos was super kind and helpful. Only issue is the train is very loud and can wake you up. If you're a hard sleeper it's totally okay.

The best part about this Airbnb is the host, Juan. He's extremely knowledgeable about Costa Rica--all of it, not just San Jose. He's also very responsive and answered my messages almost immediately. He has a washing machine, which added convenience. The neighborhood is hipster, with many trendy restaurants. There weren't any street food options but you can walk to the train station and take the bus nearby to Mercado Central. The main issue with this location is the train. It passes by regularly, including at 5am(!). At the same time, it's within walking distance, so I got to see Alajuela, Cartago, and Heredia easily. (May 2017)

Juan Carlos was awesome! Very helpful with suggestions about where to go in the city and what to eat. The place is very safe. The location was perfect just a 10-15 min walk to downtown and it's surrounded by a lot of cute restaurants.

Juan Carlos is friendly and super intelligent! He was totally there for me when I needed him. His place is nice and clean and the room I had was very comfortable and has a big, bright window. The neighborhood is alive with people!
