We really enjoyed our 8 day stay at the hostel. Rodolfo and Molly were the friendliest and most personable hotel owners we met in the DR. Talking to them was a treat and and they took good care of us --picked us up, gave us good info., even helped us with laundry one day. The house, the outside patio, the... More

Jarabacoa Mountain Hostel is the best hostel that I have stayed at. The location is great as it is located close to the city and a ranch where you can participate in a lot of activities such as river rafting. The owners, Molly and Rodolfo, were also very helpfull! They made it very easy for me to stay in Jarabacoa... More

This was perfect for us. If you need a fancy, all inclusive hotel then this is not the place. It was exactly what we needed- warm bed, clean kitchen, very close to a company that does river rafting, canyoning and other tours. Molly and Rudolfo are incredibly friendly, helpful and easy going. The only issue we had was the shower-... More

This place was great! It is a really nice house just far enough outside of town to enjoy the quietness of the countryside but close enough to walk in to town to take advantage of everything in Jarabacoa. The house is great- really clean, comfortable, colorful, and homey. They also had a bike that was great for getting around and... More

After reading many glowing reviews I thought I had stumbled on a real find. The price for the night, though low ($28/room), was to include internet, which we were informed wasn't working. We were told just to come down to the house two doors down to use theirs. The place was dirty, the shower liner was torn, the coffee pot... More

This place is awesome. They essentially give you your own little house to stay in with full kitchen and living room movies/ games. Colorful rooms and mosquito nets add just what you need for simple comfort. Felt like going home after our trekking. They also provide you with bikes to use as well as locks to tour the city by...

We found the hostel, which is actually a very pleasant house, to be very clean with excellent and comfortable beds. There is a good, fully equipped kitchen and nice bathroom facilities. Molly's instructions on how to find it were perfect and she was a wonderful source of information about the region. The hostel isn't 'manned', so it's very important to... More

Very cozy and price-worthy option if you ever go to Jarabacoa! We stayed at the Jarabacoa Mountain Hostel for two weeks. At the time of our stay we were the only ones staying at the hostel. This basically meant we had a whole house to ourselves! Fully equipped and all! We used the kitchen every day. No problems whatsoever. The... More

I spent ten days here last month and really felt at home. The hostel is a VERY clean house with several rooms. It is very comfortable and homey. It is about a 17 minute walk from the city center. As mentioned by other reviewers, that is about a $2.50 taxi ride. The beds are super comfortable. It was stocked with... More
