I had been really sick with an acute kidney infection and on top of that had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics. Had to stay in the hospital for two days. Mailed Casajungla to ask if we could modify our booking to a later date. I had already paid upfront. They were not understanding at all. They had rooms available... More

I stay there twice. They are super welcoming, helpful for the rest of my trip. They kept my bag for two months, and when I came back they were so happy to see me, and prepared my room quickly. The place is very clean, it's a great hostel, very charming and peacefull in the middle of a little jungle! Closed... More

We stayed 2 nights in Casa Jungla. This place has a nice atmosphere, lots of decorations and fresh flowers in your room. The garden is beautiful, and has good places to relax. Bathrooms and toilets are shared, but there are more than enough. The owners are cleaning and sweeping the place all day long. But because of the rain and... More

This place is close to the beach and a good walk away from the noisy streets of downtown Jacó. Check the map. The rooms have good light. Some with two twin beds and others with queen beds. The feng shui seemed well thought out. My room had little decorations, wooden boxes with a stick of incense and flower vases on... More

We stayed three nights at Casajungla and booked a room with private bathroom. Room was clean, the only thing is that it's a bit small when you have big luggages and 2 weeks of clothes, but in the end it doesn't mince that much as we spent most of the day outside the room. The place is amazing, well decorated,... More

They were expecting us and welcomed us warmly. The place is small but cozy and the rooms are comfortable. Everything was clean including bathrooms and showers. They have bikes that we used free of charge to ride into town (10 min ride) they have an out door kitchen and dining area. This is super handy because the grocery store is... More

Casajungla is a wonderfully amazing hostel run by a very friendly couple. We were "those people" who arrived late at night and left early in the morning and yet we were still greeted with flowers and incense and departed on a positive note. When we were heading to Manuel Antonio they lent us a laminated pamphlet with information about the... More

I'm so happy that i found this hostel. It's really quiet, nice, clean and i could feel like at home. The couple which works there is lovely and really polite. They have WiFi, bikes, coffee, a lot of bathrooms with nice colors. All the house with the sleepingrooms, the garden and the kitchen are nice. I could rent a surf... More

I have been travelling for 5 months now and I have to say that this is one of the best hostels I have stayed in by far. The hostel is cleaned every single day and the hosts even clean your room for you. The kitchen is extremely useful and the fact that you can use the bikes for free is... More

This place is lovely and charming. The owners are artists, and each room is unique. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfortable. The outdoor kitchen is also beautiful and has wooden swings to sit in hanging on one side of the table. The beach is in walking distance, as well as tons of restaurants and nightlife. There's...
