HEART OF SAN JOSE CITY - BUT QUIET
This is literally in the very center of San Jose, walk no more than 8 blocks to best museums, galleries, nightlife and groceries. You will NOT hear the usual neighbors, cars or construction noises of an urban area. You will hear students and yoga classes at a reasonable level - never before 8 a.m or after 10p.
$12 overnight parking is available in a guarded lot, daytime street parking available.
This is a 25 - 45 minute drive to airport depending on traffic, buses within 10 blocks also run nearby to airport and many locations in Costa Rica.
I have a tour business and can have our driver pick you up or take you to the airport for $30. This is $5 less than the regular rate.
I operate a city walking tour business so this is definitely the best place to stay to get great activity referrals. If you are interested in a city tour visit - toursanjosecostarica to see options and book in advance.

This stay was incredible. The studio is close enough to the heart of San Jose that you can walk everywhere but it's far enough that you get peace and quiet at night. I did two yoga classes which were fun because I was working my body and mind as I was learning the pose names in Spanish! If you're looking for somewhere cute to relax this is the place to stay. However, during the rainy season the Internet is extremely spotty. If you need to work or need a strong connection of wifi summertime isn't the best... But! There is a delicious cafe right across the street called Cafe Meil that has great internet if you just need it to communicate back home for a while. Try the Cookie Monster cafe frio! Stacey is a doll and full of information. Worth every penny (and it isn't even expensive!)
Stacey's room is basic but comfortable. We wished the bathroom was cleaner, as it is shared and with many users from the Yoga sessions. The location of the house is the best part and communication with Stacey was fluent and efficient.
My boyfriend and I were only in San Jose for one night while passing through, but we enjoyed our stay very much. We had recently flown in from America and joining in during a night yoga class felt amazing after being on a plane for so long. She gave very clear and direct directions to her place and how to maintain security during our stay. If ever in San Jose again we would definitely enjoy staying in this location!
Stacey's instructions and how to get to the place were great. Beautiful old house converted into yoga studio. We also joined in and did some yoga while we were there (classes are in Spanish but it was not too hard to follow along). Definitely will be returning!
Good location, near Avenida Central, a soda, across from a delicious coffee shop. Easy walking distance to parks and downtown San Jose. Nice yoga class if you're comfortable understanding a minimal amount of Spanish. A good location for independent travelers.
My stay at Stacey's private downtown yoga retreat was short and sweet. I stayed here on my last night in Costa Rica after a long weekend in Playa Santa Teresa. Stacey greeted us upon arrival, walked us to our room and helped us find a safe place to park. She was very kind and allowed me to join in on a yoga class even though it had already started. We all very exhausted from our journey, so having warm water (with excellent water pressure) and a comfy bed in a quiet environment was all we could ask for. I hope to visit again someday!
Stacey's Private, Downtown, Free Yoga #1, is a nice place in the San Jose Down town area everything can just be reached in a few minutes.
Yoga can be taken for free - awesome. Just perfect.

About the Host, Stacey
Expat yoguini living in Costa Rica. - I am a San Jose fanatic. It's a great small-town kind of city with museums, parks, restaurants and friends waiting at the doorstep.
I love to eat, practice yoga, go to local concerts, garden, hike and explore!
After being here for 6 years I could never live without Salsa Lizano, Gallo Pinto, walkable streets, my street pets or all of my fabulous Costa Rican friends!
If this room is booked, please write me to see if second room at same space is available.
