The art district is a block away. Funky trains passing on two sides. The best IPA ever tasted (La Pelona). The atrium right inside his door. Shopping and busses to the downtown mall right there

Juanjo is a fine person and great host. His art house is unique and well decorated. The room is basic, but a decent value. The location is fantastic for travelers seeking a great variety of restaurants and nightlife, not very touristy yet, and an opportunity to experience a youthful, hip Tico urban scene. I will rent again when in San José.

Great space close to Barrio escalate with lots of restaurants and bars. Quick 15-20min walk to city center. Didn't get to meet the host but he was super responsive via messenger and and checking in was easy. Would stay again!

Really lovely house in a great location! Unfortunately Juanjo was not there when we stayed, and that mixed with my limited access to internet made it a bit stressful trying to find the location. I don't think it would be a common problem though! He was very willing to communicate.

I found nice shops around there and really enjoyed it! Plus, a supermarket in this building helped me a lot. The room style reminds me of Brooklyn, NY. Juan is very talented and kind person, thank you :)

Hi! Im Juan, an artist / graphic designer based in San Jose, Costa Rica.

I live in Los Yoses, a neighborhood on the east side of San Jose.
My apartment is nice and bright, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, in a great location, 20 min walking distance from downtown. Nice neighborhood with bars and restaurants.

I love living in the city but in a comfortable and safe yet lively part of town, right in the border between San Jose and San Pedro.
