As a group of girls studying abroad here in Costa Rica, Mini Camas was the perfect place for us during our weekend stay in Jacó. It is affordable, welcoming, clean, and groovy. It's a very short walk (3 min) from the excitement of el centro but removed enough from it to relax. The rasta colored gates and the hammock at... More

We first met Jesse who was extremely helpful and very nice. Our room was clean and comfortable. Nice to have our space but also... More

I roamed around Costa Rica for about a month and stayed at a few different hostels (Montezuma, La Fortuna, San Jose...). This place was most definitely my favorite. We had one of the rooms in the house around the corner, but because of timing I guess, we had the whole house to ourselves. The house was pretty clean, the beds... More

My buddy's and I stayed there for 2 nights. Joe, who is helping the owners out, was extremely friendly and gave us great reccomendations for restaurants and was some good info for the rest of our trip. The place is cozy as we stayed in the dorm rooms which is part of the main house and they have a pool... More

The guys who own and run this hostel are so friendly and easy going. It's more like staying in a community than hostel. They make sure you are comfortable, they introduce you to the place its self and Jaco. They will take you out and tell you where to go, great recommendations and they are in touch with some really...

This place, is cheap, clean, has a pool and air con in every room, super nice common areas also. But what really makes this place absolutely awesome is the owner, He's the coolest guy i have met on my trip and he made our experience in costa rica amazing. So happy i stumbled across this little gem.

I’ve traveled all over the world and Las Camas is by far my favorite; I never write reviews. I planned on staying there for a couple of days and ended up staying a few months. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. There is no other place I would want to go. Ryan, Matt and Jesse will make... More
