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

Jaco Inn was the first hostel I stayed in at Jaco Beach and I returned there about 3 times after my first experience. I was pretty happy with my stay and I didn't feel the need to look elsewhere. A lot of people complain about the various hostels at Jaco Beach but I never heard anything bad about Jaco Inn.... More

I felt this was a friendly and clean hostel. It is in the center of Jaco and close to the beach. I stayed here in the dorms with my sister. We stayed for 3 nights. We drank the tap water here and it seemed to be fine. They have a launderette here that you can use and a washing line... More

My first place at Jacó wasn't Jaco Inn, I meet Jaco Inn because my first place was a very big disappointment. Jaco Inn is a hostel, when I was there wasn't weekend and is a place quite and clean, but if you go during holidays maybe isn't the same. The bathroom is share between roomers and this can be a...

Jaco Inn was comfy from the start, with a nice kitchen and shared area. The rooms themselves are beautifully built with nice colors, clean and well-locked! The group of travellers I spent time with there were all terrific. There was an incident while I was there with guests accidentally being allowed in late at night on a Saturday and someone´s... More
