“AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is a very beautiful place
The staff is very cool, the room features a pool, you can rent a surfboard or bike. You have access to a small kitchen. The room is clean, beautiful. The hostel is located close to the beach and several gift shops.
It was my favorite place in Jaco.

The hostel is very nice, cheap, and well located in downtown, 100 m from the beach, which is nice. People working there are very nice too and gave important tips for enjoying our stay in Jaco. Rooms and bathroom are clean. I strongly recommend this hostel

I have stayed here three times in two months.....I keep on coming back because it is such a nice place to stay.
It is clean, it has beautiful rooms, a nice pool, friendly staff and it's right in the center. They are flexible with bookings and changing rooms and it is also affordable.

Really cool and peaceful hostel. I felt at home,... what more can I say? Just stay here!

Room Tip: Dorm with lockers, safe and cheap!

Clean rooms and kitchen. The staff was friendly and helpful. Nice area to relax with small pool. However, the curtains seemed to be semi-see-through. Easy access to all amenities and beach. During the night it was a bit noisy but overall for the price it is a good accommodation.

My sister and I came here while travelling through Costa Rica. We made a search on TripAdvisor, and decided to come check it out. The staff here was unreal - they were so helpful with everything and anything that we asked.
We stayed in a more private room, with two beds - but opted for the no A/C. There were still two fans in the room, which made it a bit cooler.
The bathroom (shared) was cleaned about twice a day, and had great water pressure.
The outdoor showers, the outdoor pool, the nice kitchen, and the beautiful decor just made this a lil peace of paradise!
We paid approx. $40 for a double occupancy room, so we couldn't complain on that!
Would recommend this place to anyone!

I really enjoyed the Buddha house hostel as it had everything you need to stay in Jaco. It's on the strip but tucked behind a little bit so you're never bothered by what's going on outside of the hostel (except for maybe when the clubs are loud on a Saturday night- and still we didn't notice.) The staff is very friendly and helpful in setting up some things we needed to for the following day of travelling to Montezuma. I believe it was 70$ for the room we stayed in which was very well kept. Air conditioning, tv, wifi, hot shower with great pressure, large bathroom, kitchen, a bigger pool for the area, etc...) The only thing I could do without was the loud and obnoxious house music playing constantly until the evening- that was a little annoying unless you're a techno person- then it's great!
