DSCVR - The Garden San José

San José

Situated in San José, 2.9 km from National Theatre of Costa Rica, DSCVR - The Garden San José features accommodation with a shared lounge, free private parking, a garden and barbecue facilities. Boasting family rooms, this property also provides guests with a sun terrace. The accommodation provides entertainment staff and a shared kitchen. I was looking for a place to stay that had access to a kitchen and initially made reservations at two different places. One was $900. for 6 days and the other was $600. I read reviews stating that the $600. place had no pots, pans or silverware and the $900. one was not near where I wanted to be. Then I found The Garden, which not only was 1/2 the price of the $600. place, it has a fully equipped kitchen AND a group of fascinating people who run the hostel as well as an equally fascinating group of people (of all ages) staying there. There is no pool but there is a simple, calming, precious courtyard garden, a semi open porch, living room (with a TV with Netflix, CNN, etc.) and dining area. The beds are very comfortable and you can choose from a dormitory style room or private bedroom. I had never stayed at a hostel before and in doing so at the Garden, I realized that the atmosphere is one I much prefer over the anonymity of a typical upscale hotel. Here, the staff of The Garden were friendly and exceptionally helpful, offering their knowledge and connections. The continental breakfast includes delicious fresh fruits, eggs and toast made the way you like them. The home itself is very comfortable, with lots of wood, and it's in an excellent location.
