“My second home in Jaco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

I've stayed here last year and then again this year for 3 nights. The rooms are reasonable, $12 pp/night for the dorms. The parking lot has a locking gate if you are worried about getting your rental car broken into. There are a few different caretakers, and only one that I've met doesn't speak much English, but I saw other guests who didn't speak any Spanish able to communicate with him and get help with their calling cards, etc. Rooms are clean, bathrooms are too. It's a short walk to the beach (2 blocks approx.) and is located in the middle of the main street in Jaco, so you can walk to souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, surf shops, etc.

I stayed there for one night with a friend in a dorm, which was comfortable and quite. It´s just a 3 min walk away from the beach and located in the centre of Jaco which makes it even more difficult to be a quite location. Next to the hostel is the Tabacon, where you could have real good coffee in the morning. I also saw the private rooms, they are also very comfortable and have a nice design. Nice staff. You just feel like somebody is sharing his home with you.

Cleaning staff wanted to kick us out at 9 am because someone else was coming, when check out wasn't till 12. Not very welcoming! Private room very loud with no privacy because the room is all windows and the shades are broke
