I didn't expect much from Jacob but this Hostel made all the difference. Very relaxed and easy going, excellent facilities that actually get taken care of (like BBQ grill and oven), nice atmosphere with plenty of hammocks and rocking chairs and plants for shadow. The wifi works flawlessly for Costa Rican standards and power outlets are in the rooms and outdoor area if you need them; all things I came to appreciate a lot on my travels.
The staff is fantastic and was pretty much available and helpful night and day but without giving you the feeling of watching you. It right away felt like I stayed over at a friends house.
Thema only thing I didn't like is that my dorm room didn't have a window. Though it didn't smell bad or anything and I was only in there to sleep anyways. This is the first hostel where the pillows actually didn't smell like the last persons feet...
If in Costa Rica again I will definetly stop by! Thank you!
