Welcome home! Quiet room in nice neighborhood, 10 minutes’ walk downtown. Parks, restaurants, museums, bars and theaters nearby. Private bathroom, shared kitchen, 3MB wifi. I will give you info to visit beaches and volcanoes with public buses.

The space

The room is in a great and quiet loft, full of light. Right downtown San José, the house offers tranquility, privacy and silence. This is a house to relax and feel at home. The room has a great sight; it is easy to get inspired by the green and blue colored mountains seeing from the room window and the balcony.

Guest access

Guests will enjoy the lovely and lightful living room, with rocking chairs and a great couch. Guest are welcome to read all the books there are and to leave them here when they leave. The room and WC are fully equipped: one bed with a really firm mattres, desk, big closet and hot water in the shower. There is wireless internet and a housekeeper comes around twice a week. Guests can use the kitchen and the balcony (balcony recommended for smokers, too). Minimarkets, bakeries, and drugstore are right next door.

Interaction with guests

I am the only person living in the house, so guests always enjoy silence and privacy. Guests will have their own key to the house. I am always happy to give information about touristic spots, buses and cultural issues. I am very fond or sketching maps when needed and even driving guests to the supermarket if I have the time.

Other things to note

This house offers the great pleasure of being right in the middle of the city without suffering of noise or crowded streets!

Gabi is THE BEST Airbnb host I've ever stayed with! She was helpful, kind and always looking to help make my stay in Costa Rica as good as possible. Her place is in a great location too, so you're never too far away from anything. Super recommended!

This was my first time traveling alone. I booked Gabi's place for two main reasons, I wanted somewhere homey and wanted to be with someone who I could be comfortable with because I intended to stay in San Jose for a week -- Gabi was that and more. Her place is in San Jose which is about 30-40 minutes from the airport (the airport is actually in Alajuela, not San Jose). She gives easy to understand directions including how much everything will cost. Upon arrival, Gabi, gave me a map of the neighborhood, a sheet of things to do and see in San Jose, and a draft itinerary of things to do and see in Costa Rica. Most of the country is accessible by bus or shuttle so don't be shy about traveling. Coffee is included with the stay. Gabi provides a shelf in the fridge and on a cabinet to store food for your stay. Another thing I loved about my stay with Gabi is how communicative she is. Four days before arrival, she sent me an email with everything I needed to know. When I had questions, she answered within the hour. If I return to San Jose, will definitely book with Gabi again!

Gabriela has lots of great reviews and after staying I her place I can see why. She was extremely welcoming and went out of her way to help me. She was really a big help at check-in because houses and apartments in Costa Rica are not so easy to find at times. Great internet. Nice hot water and a good location. It was a pleasure to stay with her.

Gabriela is such a beautiful spirit and an amazing host! She went above an beyond to make sure my stay was comfortable and that I was able to move through San Jose on my own. From my ride from the airport to her place to the last day of my stay Gabriela was truly amazing. As a first time solo traveller I was very nervous about my first night in San Jose, when I arrived at the airport Gabriela happily spoke to my taxi driver to make sure I arrived safely. Her warm inviting personality mixed with her knowledge put most of worries at ease. In my room I found a print out of a map of San Jose, some recommendation of restaurants, bars and places I should see around the city which were extremely helpful and appreciated. She lives about 10 minutes away (by foot) from downtown San Jose, very easy to get around. On the first night we had tea while she explained and broke down the map to make sure I understood. Throughout my whole stay Gabriela checked in on me to make sure I was good, whenever I needed help or assistance she was available and even contacted me after I left her place to make sure I had arrived safely in another city. Her hospitality is out of this world. I throughly enjoyed my stay at Gabriela's. Whenever I visit Costa Rica she will be my go to place for San Jose!
