Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

I truely love the stay at this place. It is brand spanking new with all the trims of a classy hotel with hostel prices. Kev and Brian truely look after us and I cant wait to get back there asap. Was good to both relax and have a few drinks at the pool or on the sea view rooftop. Thankyou so much

This hostel was a great place to stay. The Staff created a great atmosphere and made you feel at home. The building architecture is amazing and the lay out is great with lots of room options and 2 bars one by the pool and one on the roof to watch the sunset, and the bathrooms were amazing. I really enjoyed my stay with Room 2 Board.

Fantastic set up, attention to detail is unmatchable.
Good location for beach and town access. Great roof terrace with ocean views. Would highly reccomend if you're going to jaco, are a surfer or just want some luxury on your travels.
Friendly and helpful staff, only downside is we had to leave.

Brand new hostel with great rooms and bathrooms. I missed having a kitchen, but this was almost done before I left. Straff is great, Kevin can help you with everything you need. Hostel is about 10 minutes from the centre of Jaco, but super close to the beach. Surfboards are cheap to rent as well. Room2Board is the best hostel I've ever stayed at, would definitely stay here if I'm back in Jaco.

This place was phenomenal. Definitely the best hostel I have ever been to. I stayed one night with a friend and we met some great people both staying and working there. The guy who was working showed us a great time. Best weekend I've had in a while.

Fantastic newly built hostel, great attention to detail all over the hostel from light up floors to immaculately clean and modern bathrooms.
Big roof terrace bar where you can watch the sunset, great pool and easy access to the beach.
Staff are all helpful and good fun
I've stayed in many hostels and this is easily the nicest. Would recommend highly

After staying in hostels across the US and Europe, I can confidently say this is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Room2Board has been built with the backpacker in mind, from the smallest details in the rooms (there are plug sockets in the lockers!!) to the services and activities that they provide. The facilities are beautiful and modern, and the customer service is amazing. The owners and workers made us feel so welcome with lunches, a wonderful dinner (paella!!) and drinks on the terrace during the sunset. We spent our days by the pool, went surfing in the afternoon (Room2Board works with a great surf company too), and had some great nights out in Jaco. And we always returned to a clean hostel and friendly staff. I am already planning my next trip back to Room2Board!
