Property Description

Wipeout is a small hostel located in Playa Hermosa which is 6km out of the craziness of Jaco and within walking distance to Hermosa Beach which is a great Surf break and also offers beachfront restaurants, pubs and minimarts. The Sunrises/Sunsets at Hermosa Beach are truly amazing and the beach is a lot less crowed that Jaco.

Wipeout is a great place to meet people from all over the world and all staff are super friendly and willing to help you with anything you need.
We admit It can be a little noisy on the occasional weekend but normally it’s pretty chilled (This is a hostel after all).
Wipeout is a very clean, safe, modern, beautiful hostel with free air-conditioning in the evenings to help you have good night sleep.
We have a tropical outdoor pool with a BBQ open all year round.
We also free Wi-Fi, cable TV and private parking and have great security.


As for our location being a little out of Jaco there is a bus stop right near the hostel that can take you to Jaco, Quepos or Puntarenas and we have a great deal with some of the taxi drivers View House Rules

    Great hostel for surfing and meeting international people. I had a great stay, met so many interesting and cool people and got plenty of chances to surf with new friends. My only recommendation to the hostel is to have some Nintendo video games to play after a long day of surf! :)

    Great little place near Playa Hermosa which can have really great waves. The beach is within walking distance but they have bikes which you can borrow which is a great touch. Really friendly staff. Enjoyed a few beers with them during my time there. Will hopefully stay again. Cheers!

    Very Good

    Big room, beds were high and difficult to access, proper surf hostel, nice but small kitchen, pool wasn't very clean, staff, owner and guest got drunk one night and kept everyone awake until 3AM, be aware that it's outside of Jacó and the surf at Playa Hermosa is not for beginners.
