“Great space, excellent hospitality”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

Although I only stayed in Cabinas Back Packer for one night, it was a great experience. 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, with a great kitchen and common area and very comfy hammocks. Frederico will even do your laundry for a small price - afterwards my clothes were cleaner than they've ever been. If you're stopping through PJ, this place will provide a really great home base for all the amazing surroundings!

Stayed November 2013, traveled with friends

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. And only just a tiny bit more expensive then the ugly places next door.
You can negotiate better prices if you don't want to use the kitchen.

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 all our clothes were damp. The owner was lovely and couldn't do enough for you. We arrived at lunchtime and promptly handed over 5kg of washing to him that arrived back clean, dry and neatly folded by 7pm for $3 a kg. The room was clean and even had cable TV. The shower like many places was cold water only but this was not an issue for us.

There was a great kitchen for making your own meals and fast, stable wifi.

Would recommend if you are spending time in PJ.
