Great facilities, clean room, nice pool and bar area. The rooftop patio is nice and relaxing with hammocks the hostel is located near the beach and a relatively short walk to the city center. I stayed midweek and it was a very calm, relaxing environment but have heard it can be quite busy on the weekends. I would definitely stay again.

We stayed here as a cheap option in Jaco. The roof area, pool/bar area, beach access and walkability to town are awesome and a great deal for the cost of the rooms. We had the private room with ensuite on the top floor (301) and it was great. It is still just a hostel meaning limited towels, no toiletries or regular things you would expect in a hotel room but overall, excellent option for Jaco. The people are so friendly.

Great location with a short walk to the beach. Great facility, which one could imagine as a swanky hotel, but is a very economical hostel. Great staff that had pleasant personality as well as being pleasant to the eyes. Finally, a competitive price for the area.

I loved my stay here. The staff are lovely, facilities great, there is an (albeit small) kitchen and the views from the roof at sunset are spectacular! Yes, it is a party hostel so it can be loud by the pool during the day. However, the music is turned off at 11pm when people get shuttled into town so you can still have a good sleep here if you want it. Happy hour and the Cantina bar in the city are a win too and are great if you want to socialise. I found it really hard to leave!

I stayed one night as I was passing through Jaco. loved my stay here, it was clean and tidy and large dorm. The pool and bar areas are great and the food in the evening was lovely. They said free coffee from 5am but not correct. The staff turned the coffee on at 7am and by the time it was hot I had left to catch the bus. The location is great as very close to the beach. I would defo stay again. Thanks
