We stopped here a couple of nights before heading to the Caribbean coast. Very pleasant. Our room was comfortable and reasonably clean. The hotel was quiet but friendly. Shared bathrooms were fine. Helpful staff. Would stay again.

Very nice place near the center of San Jose. The people working there are available to help (thanks Daniel and Luis). Not enough bathrooms though (only 2), but the breakfast is included. Good hotel with good prices.

They sent us to another place whicht was a dive. Forgiving this mistake, this time we made reservations about a week ahead. Again for the... More

La Cuesta is an easy-going hotel with a good location. I splurged on a double with a private bathroom - clean, comfortable. There's a good central public area where it's easy to meet other travelers and swap stories. The staff is helpful and accommodating. There are four slow computers to use in addition to wifi. The kitchen is minimal and... More

Good localization, close to the downtown; breakfast is included (coffee, milk, cereal, fruit, juice). I was for 3 night alone at the female dorm - 12US a night. The staff were wonderful - Alvaro knows a lot of things about Costa Rica, and like to help you! For me the biggest problem was that the collective bathroom was not that... More

My stay at the guest house was ok. The first few nights I stayed, there was a middle aged male Costa Rican staff member who was running the place. He really goes above and beyond the call of duty. I thought he was the owner because he was so caring and attentive. It has a nice homely feel and I... More

I have been staying here for 20 years, The first time it was 1993, it was 6$ a night. While the price has gone up its still a good value. Centrally located, you have access to everything. The breakfast is ok, but it does the job. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The last time iwas ther I got... More
