If you looking for a place with a kitchen a good safe parking for your car and a good host this is the place for you. The bed wasn't the most confortable and there were some people hanghing around the room until late. The room was nice big and luminous but could have been cleaner

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hostel for 3 nights while travelling around Costa Rica. It definitely wasn't my favourite. We got this private room on the main floor, which looked kinda pretty with the orange curtains. But as others have said, the sheets do not fit the beds at all. Every morning we'd wake up basically sleeping directly... More

The hostel's location was really central, but the staff/service was average (they did not really seem interested in their guests). The common room/kitchen was okay, but small and not really cozy and welcoming. The showers were cold and the bed sheets were pretty dirty.

My friend and I travelled around Costa Rica for 1 month and we can safely say this is the worst hostel in Costa Rica. Firstly, there is no hot water. I don't mean the water is lukewarm, I mean ice cold. So having a shower was not a pleasant experience. Secondly, the toilet paper is not regularly replaced and neither... More

We spent 5 nights in this hostel.. Amazing location (2 minutes walk to the Jãco North beach), friendly staffs, and near to numerous restaurants and bars. We also had the chance to meet many international friends with who we spent great times! Jãco Inn is still an hostel but it remains a great choice regarding its low price. :)

This hostel was clean, simple and right in the centre of town. The rooms are spacious and quiet. The outdoor areas, kitchen and lounge were large and comfortable, with plenty of shade and loads of parking.

We had a double room in the main building with shared bathroom, where the wooden shower frame seems to be rotting away for some time now. People were neither friendly not helpful and seemed to know what they offer. Cleaning staff was just sitting around while the place was definitely in need of their help. Kitchen and bathroom were disgusting... More

Actually, we really liked this hostel. It was sufficiently clean and at first the staff appeared friendly. But then we realized that someone broke our locker and stole us money. We didn't want to accuse anyone from the hostel but a part from us there were hardly any guests and what really made us angry was the fact that the... More

Apparently, there are no rules (or air conditioning) at all in this house. We stayed in a room that looked adorable online, however, there was no air conditioning which meant we had to leave the windows open. The room was situated immediately off the deck where everyone was partying. We felt like we were trying to sleep through a house... More
