We had a double room in the main building with shared bathroom, where the wooden shower frame seems to be rotting away for some time now. People were neither friendly not helpful and seemed to know what they offer. Cleaning staff was just sitting around while the place was definitely in need of their help. Kitchen and bathroom were disgusting... More

Actually, we really liked this hostel. It was sufficiently clean and at first the staff appeared friendly. But then we realized that someone broke our locker and stole us money. We didn't want to accuse anyone from the hostel but a part from us there were hardly any guests and what really made us angry was the fact that the... More

Well the place in general is beautiful. In the dorm, in general the room looks very clean but the roof is full of spider's web. There was nobody... More

Apparently, there are no rules (or air conditioning) at all in this house. We stayed in a room that looked adorable online, however, there was no air conditioning which meant we had to leave the windows open. The room was situated immediately off the deck where everyone was partying. We felt like we were trying to sleep through a house... More

I hate to give this hostel a bad review solely because the guy who works up front, Henry, is so sweet. We booked this hostel after waiting till the last minute right before Semana Santa (never good idea and we had less options as a result). We opted for a private room with bathroom and fan. When we first arrived,... More

Stayed here two nights. I'm 22 years old, backpacking and roughing it out through Costa Rica so I can handle a lot of stuff. We arrived with no help at first and some evil glares from some women who help run the place.. Which still continue to the second day. First night we stayed in a cool large room with... More

I have stayed here several times, and it is my first choice when returning to Jaco. Dorms are 10$, private rooms are 30$- cheap and clean. I always think its going to be too hot, but there are ceiling fans, so its not too bad. Showers are shared in the dorm (they have had hot water all the times I... More

It was about 200m from the beach, loads of restaurants close by, bike rental. My bf and I staid in a double room and it was very hot even with the fun. All shower was cold and the toilet broke in the second day. I was pretty cheap by the season, we went between Christmas and NYE. We`d go back... More

It's right in the middle of Jaco. It was the perfect location. Very safe! Only people with keys were able to enter the Inn at night. Friends and I stayed in the dorms. We went to Jaco without any reservations anywhere so it was good to find this place. There was a refrigerator, stove, microwave, and computer. So if you're... More
