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.

Stacey provided excellent information to make it easy to find the location. I do not speak Spanish and am traveling solo so was a bit nervous about that, but her info was so thorough I found it right away!
Location is excellent. Within walking distance to most things you'll want to see and do in San Jose. Many great restaurants close by as well.
I took advantage of the complementary yoga classes while here. All were excellent! What a unique experience to practice in an all Spanish class! I loved it!
Not a luxurious place, but clean, safe and very adequate. If looking for a unique and reasonable stay in San Jose, this is the spot for you!
Great location in the heart of the city. Close to the jade museum and about 7 blocks to the central market. Felt very secure! Clean and well kept.
Although I never met Stacey while we stayed in San Jose, the instructions to get in and out of our room were pretty straight forward. It was a little awkward when we had to stop by the room for a minute in the late afternoon and a yoga class was still in session, but everyone seemed chill about it.
The building itself is beautiful. It's located in a very convenient part of the city, with restaurants and bars, parks, and museums all in walking distance.
Stacey is a very friendly host and we had a lovely, but brief, stay in San Jose. The neighbourhood is great for exploring and we dropped into a yoga class too.
Great, simple room. Stacey was very responsive and helpful. You will hear the Yoga class going on if you are in your room during classes. It didn't bother us, but just keep that in mind :)
Would stay again!
We were so glad that Stacey accepted our request in last minute, just a day before we arrived. There was no one when we arrived, but we got inside easily following Stacey's instructions. The room was nice & everything was great, just like Stacey. :)
Stacey's Yoga Studio was very well located in a central part of San Jose. We enjoyed our two nights there a lot. Since the floor was just being repainted, we actually stayed in the other room. But it didn't make a big difference for us. We didn't actually meet Stacey herself, since we were just there over the weekend, but the contact with her was very friendly. I can recommend this place to anyone.

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.
