Great host, good area of San Jose. A block away from restaurants and bars, a few blocks from a supermarket, and walking distance to clubs. Also probably one of the safest areas in San Jose, and a quick Uber ride to the bus terminal for access to other areas of Costa Rica. He even showed me around a little bit. Would def recommend

Juan Carlos is very accommodating, he works close by so came to let me into the apartment when I arrived and was available on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) when I had some questions about the shower. The apartment is a great space, bright and airy, plus the wifi is very good. The location is perfect, walking distance from all of the nice restaurants and bars. My local friend told me it's the most sought after neighbourhood and I can see why. A couple of downsides is it's right by the train line, which is pretty noisy. I only stayed for one night and was out for most of the day but if you're staying longer and hoping to chill or work from home this might be an issue. The other thing is there's not really any hot water. It only gets luke warm but Costa Rica is touch and go for hot water anyway. Overall I think it's a great stay for a couple of nights if you're planning on being out and about but want somewhere nice to crash at night. Just don't expect to lie in with the trains going by ;)

Of easy access to downtown San José, ecatly as seen on pictures. Barrio Escalante is an interesting neighbor, with many resturants, pld houses and graffiti back allets ready to be explored.

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.
