The Jungle House is a great place to stay really close to the beach and in dorms for 2 people who have nice-running ACs. The area surounding it is really nice and in the center of town. Hermit krabs can be seen in the backyard which are awesome

After travelling to many beaches and staying in hostels, this is a breath of fresh air. Unlike other hostels in the area this one is made of stone which keeps it much cooler during the day and into the night. The common area has a beautiful design and the kitchen is the best I have seen in a hostel to... More

When you factor in all the benefits this house offers, you're going to come up short looking for a better place. Its centrally located in arguably the best part of town because you are but a couple minute walk to anything you need. Supermarket, restaurants and bakeries, surf shops, vehicle rentals, tourism center, beaches, yoga studios... basically anything you could... More

The most perfect costa rican house! Lots of space to lounge around. We were a group of 7 and could easily find time alone or group all of us together to share a meal. The 5 downstairs rooms with AC made sleeping incredibly comfortable and the outdoor yoga hut and pool were ideal for the INSANELY hot afternoons. Less than... More

The Jungle House is perfectly located in Santa Teresa! Its in the middle of town but noise levels were never an issue for our stay as everything is sort of protected by the Jungle surroundings. We did not get to meet Joe, but he was very helpful in setting up our whole experience. The Jungle house is a beautiful complex!... More

I just went to the jungle house with a group of friends and we all really enjoyed our stay. The jungle house has many options to accommodate groups of different sizes and the location is convenient and centrally located. Its across the street from restaurants and grocery and mere minutes from the beach. It is a great place for small... More

Really cool house with a variety of rooms and accommodation options in a great location in Santa Teresa just a few minutes from the beach. The manager (Joe) is a great guy and will help you out with whatever you need (restaurant recommendations, surf lessons, ordering fresh fish, etc!!!). Well maintained, spacious and well designed.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week in late April; the entire experience was AWESOME! We were picked up at the Airport by Carlos and Antonio and made the drive from Liberia to Santa Teresa. Carlos expanded on the drive by adding local knowledge and a great personality; we stopped for mangos, cashews, a local "tree wine", and... More
