“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

A very relaxing hostel on the beach with a restaurant and a bar that draws in nightlife. You have a wide variety of choice in leisure here... You could, for instance, relax all day on the beach and then grab a hammock to spend the night reading and chatting. Or you could catch some massive surf before popping over to the bar next door to start a (very) long night in town. The staff is awesome and generally on top of things as well.

Some of the staff is very friendly, mostly from the restaurant. Good location. But, they are a couple negative thinks, why we will never go back to the hostel. First it was, bed in our room it did n;'t have changed cover and it was full of sand.We were complain on the reception, they promised to change, but never happened it.
The wi-fi does n't work well. Nearly every night was there some party and strong smell of marihuana.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our 14 day journey throughout Costa Rica.
I must say that for the same price or lower we had stayed in much more satisfying places throughout our trip.

The Good points:
- Super friendly and helpful staff - we had a little problem with someone who had pounded their fist several times into the hood of our rental car while it was parked on the street and the manager helped us by telling us exactly who to contact, let us use their phone and directed us to the "good" police station
- Location - approx 1/2 minute walk to the beach and 1/2 minute walk to great shops/restaurants
- The restaurant has decent food for a decent price
- Every evening the bar in the front had great promotions running (usually girls drink free) which attracted a lot of people to the hotel and created a nightlife

The Bad points:
- The bed was pretty uncomfortable
- Our room had no A/C so it was very humid and I've never seen mold in a room before but i'm pretty sure there was some growing under the sink area
- The bathroom had obviously not been cleaned very well

I was here for Jungle Jam in January and stayed in one of the private rooms. It was a huge room with a kitchenette and its own bathroom which was awesome. Everything seemed a bit pricey but thats probably because I was coming from Honduras. The staff was helpful most of the time but could have been a bit better at times. Rooms were decently clean but the bathroom left a lot to be desired. The vibe is cool and the location is good, real close to the beach.

Beds on Bohio is not the most luxury, most comfortable, cleanest place where yo've ever been but it's definitely the best deal for your stay in Jaco ! The atmosphere is perfect ; relaxing with hammocks outside, small but useful, more than friendly and helpful staff. Beds on Bohio is made for the guests to be together, maty. Another option is private room, with less fun...

Room Tip: Air conditioning dorm is a good choice during warm seasons...

I left Beds on Bohio with a heavy heart, wishing I could have stayed longer. Sure, the mattresses were paper thin, someone stole my dress from my room, and the bathroom was disgusting. But the location was great (I could spit on the beach from the hostel) and the local personalities were friendly and entertaining. I honestly didn't spend any time in the hostel itself, because there was so much to do around town. It was totally worth the price just to a have a surface to crash on after hanging out on the beach or in one of the many restaurants. I really enjoyed getting to know everyone here, Papas and Burgers made great comfort food after an exhausting day of sea kayaking, and the free drinks at the bar next door certainly didn't hurt.

Traveled with a friend, February 2014.

Unless you like 2 inch mattresses, no air conditioning, tiny cramped bathrooms, barely any lighting, no towels for showering, and just overall dirty rooms. I am so glad we only stayed one night. It was a transitional night for us as we were on our way to a friends home in Punta Leona. The reception area was nice and the folks that checked us in were friendly and nice and called us a taxi the next morning. I was really disappointed in this place considering we had been backpacking it and hosteling it for 7 days prior all over CR and had cheaper and WAY better hostels than this one. The only perk was that ladies received a wristband to drink for free next door at Swell (a bar). This was something new as the bar had only been open for a few weeks. Other than that, I would never stay here again.
