I stay in a 6 bed dorm, room are small, with 2 inches mattress which makes it hard to have good sleep, overall cleanliness is bad, guess owners care more about the outlook of the restaurant and bar on the front, not a good party place afterall unless u want to get stoned, below average.

The only bad thing about this hostel is you have one bathroom for 18 people and trying to get in and use it is horrible, but other than that the staff is great and very friendly.

Terrible. (1) Owner was extremely rude and staff was inattentive; (2) Paid for but did not receive room with AC (owner shrugged his shoulders); (3) Room was dirty and sheets were stained; (4) Room was infested with mold and insects; (5) No hot water; (6) Overcharged for multiple items due to poor accounting (again, complaint met with a shoulder shrug); (7) Room lacked running water for extended period; (8) Generally unfriendly atmosphere. Good location but would recommend another hostel in area.

Friendly atmosphere, but extremely hot! I wouldn't have lasted more than a day here. The greatest thing about this hostel is that the beach is within walking distance. There is a spacious kitchen for cooking, and there are enough fridge spaces. I didn't use the inside shower as I just didn't feel like it, and felt filthy.

Terrible room, at 40 dollars a night with no air con or tv! Found a room around the corner with cable and lovely air con for an extra 5 dollars a night! Staff are uninterested and not very helpful! The owner only seemed interested when I was leaving and why I was leaving early! Security can be bypassed by moving a fence so anyone can wonder Into the hostel! Only decent thing to say was the beach was at the end of the road and a lovely Canadian girl worked in the bar next door! 1/10 from me!

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights in a private double room and it was very nice. There is no hot water at all but that's not really a problem in Jaco's weather. The kitchen was ok. At night is was VERY noisy, don't go to this hostel if you dont intend to party! We had a problem with the check out, the reservation said 11:30 but it actually was at 11 and when I told him (I guess it was the owner) he said the reservation was wrong and that was it. Not very friendly.

Cockroaches in the bathroom and my room was next to the bathroom ... I'll just stop there.

Very nice hostel, located a half a block from the beach and a half block to the main street with shops, bars, and good eats. All of the workers were very helpful and very friendly. There is no hot water at all in this hostel, which wasn't the end of the world since it's so hot in Costa. Most of the rooms don't have AC unless you book a deluxe room, but there is a huge helicopter propeller of a fan in each room which cooled it down enough. Other then no AC this was a great hostel and great guests

Excellent location! Restaurant was very handy and had great food! Arrangements for surf lessons, water taxi, and other transportation were handled by staff for us which was appreciated. If I was staying here again I would definitely take a room with A/C!

If you are backpacking in a tight very tight budget, and you just need a bed to stay, and you don't mind the noise from the bar next door , then this place will be ok.

Nice staff & location right next to the beach, the shared kitchen did not look good though

I booked the Deluxe room and there was nothing 'deluxe' about it. At all. Besides it was not clean. I wish I could add pictures here. Also there is no hot water in the hostel and I think this should be advertised very clearly!

The Location is very good and the restaurant is really nice. But the Rooms (we had a private double room) are pretty run down and a moldy smell welcomes you... There is a "kitchen" in the room, which is quite useless as it has only a sink and some empty cupboards. At least the room is very spacious and you have a table and two chairs in front of it. But every time you get in the room, the smell says hello again... at least, after a few minutes inside you get used to it. ;) No safe by the way.

Owner is rude to his staff and should lighten up a bit and realize they're probably making $3/hour. Place is basic, but relatively clean. Restaurant staff is inattentive and slow.
