My friend and I travelled around Costa Rica for 1 month and we can safely say this is the worst hostel in Costa Rica. Firstly, there is no hot water. I don't mean the water is lukewarm, I mean ice cold. So having a shower was not a pleasant experience. Secondly, the toilet paper is not regularly replaced and neither... More

We spent 5 nights in this hostel.. Amazing location (2 minutes walk to the Jãco North beach), friendly staffs, and near to numerous restaurants and bars. We also had the chance to meet many international friends with who we spent great times! Jãco Inn is still an hostel but it remains a great choice regarding its low price. :)

This hostel was clean, simple and right in the centre of town. The rooms are spacious and quiet. The outdoor areas, kitchen and lounge were large and comfortable, with plenty of shade and loads of parking.

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

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
