Apartments and Residences in San Jose, Costa Rica!

There are a few furnished apartments or rooms in Student Residences available. Apartments are set with basic needs such as oven, pots, pans and linens. The apartments do not always have private telephone lines. The Leņitas Student Residence rooms have T.V., private restroom and a common area with internet, microwave and coffee machine. The school doesn't own any of these apartments so we can't guarantee placement or availability, students must pay directly to the landlord in Costa Rica. If you would like to stay in an apartment we suggest you book 3 to 4 days in a bed & breakfast or youth hostel so you can come and look at available apartment and choose the one that suits your needs and budget. Some apartment landlords might require a deposit in order to be precautious against damages.
