This is the perfect place to stay if you want to relax right next to the beach. The house is set back from the main road by about 200m, making it very private, and much safer. However, it's only a few blocks away from downtown, making it easy to get to all e fun spots
Also, it's about 250m from the beach, so my girlfriend and I would make the 2 minute walk over to Playa Negra every day. Playa negra, being just outside of the true downtown, has fewer people on it, which is great
While it's a little bit more money than staying at a place like Rockin Js, it's so much quieter. My girlfriend and I loved it because we could head to the bars (or even Rockin Js one night to meet up with friends and experience the party over there) but we could then leave it all behind and come back to our nice, quiet, house.
Having a full kitchen is awesome, it left us more money to go explore in town, since we ate so many meals at the house
Lisa, the owner, is very on top of things, and always available to help and answer questions, but she definitely has her way of doing things
Our only complaint was that when the house was full, everyone was living on top of each other, because the walls are so thin, that you can hear conversations that are going on upstairs. Also, if any housemates dont get along, that could be awkward. However, if you are going with a group of friends, this would not be a problem, and, regardless, is is our one and only (small) complaint!
If you are going to Puerto Viejo, which you should if you're going to costa rica, then Hidden Jungle is a great place to stay
