Great place, but the wifi wasn't very good and it was a bit uncomfortable to share only one bathroom with everyone

Good location, and fun place to meet people. However, roms and washrooms were very filthy and beds were very uncomfortable. Definitely a party hostel.

WOW! what a hostel. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay from start to finish. The place was very clean and was set up to host sociable guests. They have a great restaurant and bar attached to the hostel and it is situated only 50 meters from the beach. Best hostel in central America..... couldn´t recommend it more!

Pretty much everything you need at a hostel.. The location is so sick!! 2min walk from the beach and right in the middle of town. It has a sweet bar and restaurant all connected which are both pretty cheap. Dorms are what you'd expect. There's some with A/C and some without. Staff were awesome, really helpful with changing rooms and finding stuff. Great place, pura vida!

Great atmosphere, especially at night with the Swell bar right next door that the hostel operates. The restaruant also serves a great hamburger and the fries are amazing. I left early in the morning and had to leave my key and the staff sent me the key deposit via PayPal after I contacted them about it. Very helpful! The only negative would be that the dorms' bathroom get dirty really quick (1 for 4 rooms of 4 beds) but for a one or two night stay, not bad.

Great location and amazing atmosphere but the rooms get like a sauna in the day time if you don't have AC.

Pretty nice environment. Beds were not the most comfortable things ever but it was a hostel so whatever. Pretty safe with the keys and what not. Rooms were a little hot.

The people who worked there were very friendly and accommodating. The location was perfect; in the middle of town and right by the beach.

It´s a hostel. Very laid back and relaxed ... the bar at the reception serves awesome snacks!! :) Wireless was not that good and it was also an old equipment in the rooms ... very used. But I guess thats just Costa Rica style ;)

This is the worst hostel in the world. Only perk is that you can freely toke there.

Had a really fun time at beds on boio worth it for the people but jaco is kind of sleazy and security at night isn't very on point. Lockers are available which is nice and the staff was amazing!

Honestly this place was good for atmosphere. The chilling spot was great and it was probably mostly because of the people. The kitchen isn't that well equipped and as everyone says, the shower is dirty. The outdoor shower is ok though. The rooms are fine. The staff is great but a little unorganized. But so nice! And it's a 30 second walk to the beach so ya.

The hostel is in a great location being only a few minutes from both the beach and Main Street shops. The restaurant attached has great food and fruit smoothies. Sharing one washroom to many guests as well as poor and thin mattresses was one of the downsides. Otherwise, it was a good time with good people.

Good atmosphere and layout, amazing food at Papas. Only complaints are it was quite dirty, the shower and bathroom and the public kitchen. A few staff were amazing, majority of staff was absolutely rude/creepy.
