Thank you, Roberto for being so kind and accommodating to us during our stay! Roberto was able to help us with a very late (1 am) checkin from the airport, and upgraded our room when fixing the AC in another. He also allowed us to use the hostels bikes to get around Jaco. The hostel is beautiful, immaculately kept, and...

We got the late bus into Jaco and went to 4-5 different hostels that were all full (well actually two of them were nasty and overpriced). After wondering around downtown Jaco for over 3 hours we finally found the Hostel Beach House. They had one room left and we were glad to pay the 50$ to have a big clean...

The hostel is ok, but not worth the price in my opinion. We were located in the tree-hut, which has a shared bathroom, shared kitchen, and two separate rooms. The hut becomes almost like a sauna during the daytime due to the wood material, so the A/C is necessary. It has a fine kitchen, but because the hut is located...

Clean, consistent hot water, relaxing atmosphere, pool was clean and refreshing. Roberto an excellent host, Maria a superb cleaning woman. The two beds (different rooms) were brand new. Linens were in excellent condition. Towels good size and in decent condition. Short walk to the Jaco strip, far enough away for no night noise to bother us. Close to a great...

Private room was small but clean, well maintained and it had an A/C. Bathroom was shared, clean and had a nice massage shower option! This hostel also has a pool and a small shared kitchen with fridge. 5 min walk from the beach and bars. Located in a quite street, so no noise at night! #sleeplikeababy

Visited for a couple of nights this month. The owner was brilliant and very happy. Didn't speak English but was always chatting away to us. Nice little pool, very clean apartments. Little walking distance from beach but a short walk doesn't hurt anyway. Thank you very much!!

Small hostel, even i think it's an hotel. No dorms. Will be perfect for couples or singles. Quiet and peaceful. Nice small pool. Clean and big rooms. Welcoming stuff. 5 minutes from center town strip. Awesome!

It was a good place to spent some nights, nice pool, good service from the reception. The shared kitchen was not very inviting but the fridge with freezer worked well. Also the airco in the room worked perfect and it was needed. We stayed in the upper room of the shared wooden cabin.The stairs to it is very steep and...
