Internet was down for the weekend but I'm assuming that was an anomaly. It was a beautiful old building with a pool and hammocks to hang out in, as well as a free breakfast. There are some shops close by but it's not in the heart of San Jose, which might be better depending on what you're looking for .

So if you are passing through for a night or two and you want to spend your time in Jacó staying up late partying and making friends, this is a great place. The staff are generally nice and fun too. But, don't expect to get any sleep at night! Extremely loud music is played far into -every- night. And they don't do refunds no matter what, so be cautious if you want to book here, maybe do a night or two at the time. It's certainly not for everyone.

The hostel was in a great location but the building was going through some renovations which made the stay a little different . There was also no AC in the rooms so be careful when you book to select the right option for you.

Friendly staff and good security. Next door to a bar w/ loud music. Jaco is a party town, so expect noise anywhere. Neg. is construction w/ workers hammering, digging, laying cement etc. This was going on most of the day, all 3 days I was there. Also lacks a certain ambiance:no real place to gather and hang out, besides scattered hammocks. Poor kitchen upkeep-the only spatula was broken n had to track down a lighter to ignite stove when cooking. No sun. Go Han next door--pool, big kitchen etc

Good place to stay, right by the beach. Great location for chilling by the beach and surfing. The staff were pretty awesome for the most part - almost all of them were super friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was fine, but it wasn't amazing. They have a bar, but it goes from 0 to 100 (there's like nothing going on to the music is super loud and you can't hear a thing). It's fine if you want to just get drunk with strangers, but it would be cool if you could hang out a bit first

Absolutely loved it at Beds on Bohio. It's centrally located, close to the beach. Rented a private room with a/c. it was a large room. The staff are super friendly! The vibes there are very laid back and friendly. We made lots of new friends while we were there. Also they have really good French fries at the restaurant.

Overall great place to stay. 1 min walk to beautiful beach and surf. 1 min walk into town. With the beach so close it is difficult to keep clean however. Major downside is how many people share 1 single bathroom. But great staff and great times for sure

Kitchen was so discusting. There was no soap for a whole day while people were cooking chicken. Went to start cooking our dinner and every single thing I grabbed was dirty. Music was extremely loud all night. Not ideal for couples. Workers getting high all day infront of customers. Rooms were SO HOT. I suggest you pay more money to go else where. The atmosphere in the evening attracts many local drug dealers and you feel SO UNSAFE.

Awesome hostel experience. Staff was very informative and knowledgeable about surroundings, hot spots and how to get in and out of town. Also had a bar and restaurant right next door which was very convenient!

Awesome hostel! The staff is super friendly. Prime location, right on the beach and central on the main street so it's really close to everything else (places to eat, tour info, shops, etc). The restaurant is good and the bar is always live, a lot of people go there every night so there's always something to do and people to meet. ONLY COMPLAINTS: Can be loud at night because of the bar, if you need to sleep early a lot, maybe consider somewhere else. AND no hot water to shower with :(
