I absolutely love this place. Everything about it is perfect. This is my 5th trip to Costa Rica and by far this is one of my favorite places. Perfect location ... Directly across the street from the beach... Right in the center of downtown area of jaco. Everything is in walking distance. The atmosphere is very relaxing... Very clean place...even... More

After our less than stellar stay in La Fortuna this was the perfect place to land. Secure parking for "Jimmy" and a very clean and comfortable room. We had only planned to stay one night but may extend to two if avail. Particularly love the covered patio with hammock and was able to enjoy the rain without getting wet.

The place is highly invested. The room is beautiful and the owner is nice. And then came the night. Without any warning before we closed for a night, we discovered that right next to the hotel, there's a dance bar that plays music very loudly. We couldnt get any sleep at all! When we tried to go to the desk,... More

I stayed here one night in a room with a shared bathroom. There was no hot water but it was freezing, just refreshing. The bed was comfortable. The air worked great. I actually woke up to turn it down. It was quiet even though it's right in the middle of the Main Street. The grounds are beautiful, colorful and serene.... More

This place is nice, really nice and at $80 a night it better be. The room was clean, water was warm in the shower, and the staff was very helpful. Be warned, laundry is price by piece instead of per kilo. One load cost us $40 which was a surprise. Nice pool as well!

My girlfriend and I planned to lay over in Jaco for 2 nights..we rented a private room which was perfect, and ended up staying an additional 2 nights! The private room (10) was great, and served us perfectly. Jaco was very central for all our day trips and excursions, and it was always nice to come back to the hostel... More

Simply one of the best hotels we have stayed at. The staff are incredibly friendly and are always available for advice in regards to where to go and what to see. The decor of the place matches its name - very chill, laid back and relaxed. There is a great big pool which is perfect for cooling off after a... More

This is a great place! I imagined it completely different (because of it being a hostel and all) but NO! It passed all my expectations! The attention is great and it's a really cozy place, close to everything and everywhere.
