“Clean & Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We stayed here for a couple of nights after spending a night at Beds on Bohio. We really enjoyed the staff and the hostel in general. The kitchen was always clean, bathrooms in good condition, beds were nice and big. It felt very family-like. Everyone at the hostel would go out together & swim together during the day. It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach, just off the main strip. It's located in a safe area as well.

All around nice place to stay and it was good for the price of $11 for a dorm room. I definitely recommend checking this place out if you're in the area and aren't looking for a super fratty experience.

If you looking for a chill place with nice people this is the hostel for you! Feels like you living in a friends house and you meet awesome people. I studied for one semester in Costa Rica, and everytime I went to Jaco for surfing I stayed at Las Camas. Close to the beach, swimmingpool and really cheap!!

Stayed here for 6 nights in Oct. 2013. Ryan, Jesse, and Matt were really cool and laid back. I felt more like I was staying with friends. They gave a lot of good tips on things to do in the area and were very helpful. Couple of the rooms have AC too. It's a 20 something crowd. I would definitely stay here again.

Me and my friend stayed here for 3 nights.. And wish it were more. If you're in your 20's or 30's and came to kick back relax and have a good time then this is the place to be. Its clean and the staff are all really friendly and include you. There's AC, pool, big front and back yard, bikes and boards, come on what else do you really need. Its a few blocks from the beach and stores, but far enough away from the main street that quite and feels safe. Thanks for a good time in Jaco!

I loved this hostel when I first arrived... Family feel. Definitely a 20-something crowd, yet everyone was mature and respectful. The place was clean enough, and they definitely make an effort to keep it that way. Lots of locals hang out there.. I would have rated Las Camas 5 stars but one of the owners, Jesse, only talked to you if he wanted to make money off of you for a surfing lesson. And his girlfriend was EXTREMELY unfriendly and unwelcoming... especially to girls. It made the girls who were staying there feel uncomfortable. But other than those two, it was great!

These guys are super awesome. It is just a really chill environment to be in. It was a great time I spent in this hostel. They were super helpful in telling us places to go out at night. The brother of the owner gives surf lessons if you ask at they are pretty reasonably priced. Surfing was one of the hardest activities I have ever tried but I am so glad I did. It was so much fun. I highly recommend this hostel for anyone, great low prices and a killer atmosphere.

Las Camas was the second hostel I stayed at in Costa Rica and it was so chill I came back for a second stay. Met so many great people and made so many great memories here, can't way to come back and visit again! Such a good vibe at Las Camas, its an awesome place to stay while in Jaco whether you want to chill and surf, party and go out dancing, hike and visit nearby waterfalls and viewpoints, or head a bit south to Manuel Antonio or Playa Hermosa for the day. The owners are way chill, provide a laidback and openminded environment, and are happy to help out in any way they can. Seriously can't say enough good things about this place. Keep holdin' it down and keepin' it real amigos, hasta luego and todo bien!
