My brother and me visited Kangaroo hotel last week and we got a lot fun there, we met people from everywhere, Australia, South Africa, USA, France, etc., the attention of Bryan couldn't be better, music was awesome (by the way, I would love if you can give me the track list). Highly recommended.

Some friends and I were visiting Jaco for the weekend and we settled on some random hostel near the beach. What a good, random choice! This was the most welcoming, fun, (clean), and best hostel we've stayed at so far in our Costa Rican travels. The staff really made us all feel welcome and even sat around with us and... More

This hostel has a very laid back, comfortable feeling. Everyone is very welcoming including other visitors. The accommodations met the necessities and then some. Highly recommended. Quote from a fellow hostel visitor, "I love the hostel life".

If you are traveling thru Jaco there is not a better place that you can stay. Located in the south end of town, and about a three minute walk from the beach this hostel offers it all. You're close enough to be able to walk into town in ten minutes but far enough away to be able to hang out... More

Hotel Kangaroo is run by a great crew of bilingual folk that make your experience their priority. I went for a 3 night stay at the beginning of my trip and returned later with my girlfriend because I'd enjoyed it so much. There is a small 4-bed dorm and many beautiful private rooms upstairs with aircon and warm showers. They... More

I am one of Ben T´s buddies so not gona repeat all the stuff he said. One thing I found really cool was that the dogs would come with us to the beach and watch our stuff while we hit the waves. Should´ve brought one home.
