    A bit dirty, but ok for a hippies hostel, price ok and good location. It's nice to chill at the beach area and not far to walk into town. They just should do something with their gates sistem, maybe just a code instead of keys......More

    We stayed in Rocking J's for 4 nights on a backpacking trip with friends. This hostel is really something else! Awesome (psychedelic) design and style, great community vibe. There is something for every price range: dorms, camping and even hammocks. Of course it's no luxury,...More

    I really enjoyed Rocking J's. It is cheap compared to the overly expensive hostels in Puerto Viejo and it has a lot of space, besides a beach-front view. It's suitable for young people - it's a party hostel - so I don't recommend it much...More

    This is a visually engaging place that has tiny details everywhere you look. The communal vibe is great and the prices are insane cheap. It has a hippy feeling to it that makes you feel like going back to the 60’s until you see all...More
