We stayed here for 3 nights either side of staying in a rainforest hostel and doing a trip into Corcovado. The owner was a really lovely person who brought us freshly made fruit juices when we arrived, and whenever we looked too hot! He also prepared us a large fruit platter for breakfast on our last day without us even... More

Rooms are fine and clean, but there are other cabinas in the area for the same money where the staff might actually help you out! The staff speak no English, which is no problem, but something to be aware of. The rules of the place are odd and the staff constantly reminded us of them. You aren't allowed to wash... More

Good place to Stay in Puerto Jimenez, just around the corner from the local bus station and from Colectivo to Carate. The best location. There is also a super market just around the corner. Very clean and they take groups! Also, hammocks. rocking chairs makes it a nice place to hang out!

The hostel is located right on the fringe of downtown PJ, a minute walk to main street but just far enough away to escape the noise. Frederico, the landlord is a lovely man with a warm and welcoming heart. The place is very clean,... More

We had a good time staying at this place for two nights. The rooms were clean and well equipped (even some kind of shelf/desk!), good showers. The landlord very nice. He does the laundry as well. You can sit outside in the garden, watch the birds... Wifi reception in the rooms. The kitchen is clean. What else can I say.... More

We stayed one night at the Cabinas Back Packer in Puerto Jimenez before going to Corcovado. Our guide from Surcos Tours made the booking for us as they don't have a website which is a pity. We had a room with a double and 2 singles and air-conditioning which was a blessing after a week on the Pacific Coast as... More
