    I had an extended stay at Hostel de Haan stayed just over two weeks. What an amazing place. The staff is friendly, constantly cleaning the place or making renovations. The location is about as close to the beach as you could ask for. The Wi-Fi here is better than the Wi-Fi I have at home! And you can even get it at any of the restaurants near the hostel(there’s 7!!!) Beautiful space. Lovely pool to hang out by in a hammock or lounging in a chair. Kitchen was well stocked with cookware.

    Really friendly and helpful staff who were available 24/7. Excellent kitchen area, everything was tidy and clean. Perfect location just 30 seconds from the beach and round the corner from the main strip of shops and restaurant in Jaco. Would highly recommend

    Stayed here with some mates for a week and it was an awesome trip. Wilson is super friendly and a fantastic dude! The rooms are pretty basic but there's a nice pool, hammocks to chill out in, and a large clean outdoor kitchen. It's a block to the beach and super close to bars and restaurants. Perfect place to stay for a surf trip.

    I didn’t like this hostel. One of five toilets was clean, the room where the showers are is open- no privacy (it’s gender mixed). The room was “dark”.

    Overall, the hostel is fine, with the outdoor pool and hammock area being the saving grace. The facilities are a bit dingy (the hostel has definitely seen better days) and the nearby area is a bit "sketchy", but if you're looking for a cheap and convenient place to stay in Jaco, this is a good option.

    Stayed here for one night and I wish I hadn’t. I had read the reviews and thought it was going to be okay. Nope. The price of $12 is too expensive for this place. The dorm room had no where to put your big bags and the bathroom attached to is was full of rotten smell and black mold everywhere. Only good thing was the pool. Stay anywhere but here. Also, in the morning I saw one of the male staff members peaking into the dorm while we slept. Such a weird and uncomfortable vibe in there.
