  • This (email hidden) to stay the night before our 6:30am flight home. Johnny (email hidden), and arranged for a taxi to pick us up in the morning. The area wasn't exciting, but I recommend staying here if you get into Costa Rica late or have to leave early the next morning. The room had a bit of dust and cobwebs, but everything was tidy and we slept great!

  • Nice area of the town. Was very close to the airport so was perfect to get to and from it! Very pretty park across from the house where you can watch the planes take off!

  • Johnny was incredibly helpful for my one night stay in San Jose! The room was clean, inexpensive, and had nice amenities like a rotating fan mounted right on the wall, perfect for Costa Rica's hot nights' sleep. He was waiting for me when I got in late at night, and even woke up to call a taxi for me at 5am the next morning when I (email hidden)!

  • A nice hostel with very nice people.. Johnny is very friendly and does everything to comfort his guests. It is not a hostel with 5 stars, but for this price it has just enough comfort.

  • Johnny's place is the perfect budget spot to stay before or after your flight at SJO. It is so close to the airport you really don't even have to take a taxi, unless you don't like crossing one large often busy street (highway). Other than the one busy crossing, the walk to the airport is quite easy and only took us about 10 minutes each way. Johnny is friendly and speaks English well.

  • Johnny (email hidden). My boyfriend and I stayed with him for two nights and had a great (email hidden). El Cacique is a great little place in a quiet and safe neighbourhood and Johnny was friendly and welcoming. He even arranged for our early morning cab to the airport. I would highly recommend Johnny's place to anyone and would happily stay over again. Thanks Johnny! - Virginia and Ryan

  • I'm not a complainer but it turns out "behind the park" means down a dark alley. I found out what it feels like to have a dead roach between my toes. Amid the filth, one bathroom tile was particularly menacing. The shower head did manage to get water on me and had strange exposed wires that did make the water warm. A rooster added color at 3am to the sound of a jet taking off overhead. The bottom sheet was stained and the top was folded on the headboard, presumably a convenience if the room is just rented for an hour. I think I may have accidentally paid the weekly rate.

  • My flight was a little delayed so I arrived to Johnny at 1:30 am. and he came to open me a door. Room was clean and water hot.

San Jose Costa Rica Airport Lodge / El Cacique Hotel
About
I was a licensed general guide in CR registered by The Costarican Tourism Board before I turned my home into a Lodge. These days I just host my place & sometimes share good funny stories of my traveling days! My place sits at a 1000 mts above sea level, giving us fresh evenings all year round! My house is known locally as El Cacique Hotel, simply the most affordable option in the area. I can also help get rent a cars, sometimes give private tours & do transfers to every SJ downtown bus terminals on a daily basis. My place is nicely located next to parque Agricultor, which is home to many different types of birds and trees. Right off my deck the mountain views are very enjoyable!. My house is walking distance to the Santamaria International airport, all rent a cars, casino live music, 5 restaurants, bank, pharmacy, grocery stores. Everything safe & hassle free!!! Johnny
