The hosts Evan and Francesca are superb. Best hot showers in CR. Beds are comfortable, great sleeps. Stay here!.
Great hostel with great staff, always nice, felt like part of a big happy family! This place attracts great people! :) A bit outside town, but only a 3-4 min bikeride and bikes are rented for free at the hostel. Perfekt place to chill, but still has everything nearby. Supermarket, gym, great advice on trips, surfing lessons etc. Kitchen is ok equipped and the bar next door has cheap local food if you dont feel like cooking!
map shows hostel in town but it is out of town , we chose to stay here based on location which was not correct website needs to explain this
We had a blast. The staff was great, made us feel at home and part of a family. We stayed a few extra nights because we just didn't want to leave. I would recommend this as a great place to stay, the beach is just around the corner with surf and stunning sunsets. We will be going back if there is space.
Very friendly with exceptional service. The owners and staff are really fun to hang out with.

This hostel was the best. The atmosphere was awesome, the people were welcoming, and the location was prime. Francesca and her husband were so helpful. They would tell us the best places to go and even booked us surfing lessons which were awesome. The hostel vibe is chill, whether you want to go out and party or stay in and hang out. Truly felt like a home away from home. Definitely making it a point to come back here next time :)
Overall a positive stay. Francesca was helpful and very eager to help us with whatever we needed. There was a good amount of information on the town and things to do around the area posted at the hotel. There were a couple cats and four dogs living at the hotel, which were all well behaved and a pleasure to be around. The pool was well kept and a definite bonus to have. The location was excellent for people who want to be near the surf. Garbage cans were full for a couple days before emptied.
Kangaroo Hostel is really a great place to stay when you're in Jaco. The staff is great and the pool is nice. The beach is just on the corner and there are bikes to go to downtown Jaco. It's really nice!
The hotel was great, the staff even better
