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

    Wipeout is one of my favorite hostels! It's such a friendly, chill and fun environment. It feels like you're staying at a friend's house rather than a hostel. It's not in downtown Jaco and that's exactly why I chose this place; it's quiet, safe, yet still a walking distance from the beach. Playa Hermosa is lovely, very popular for surfing and there are several great restaurants along the beach. A great yoga studio is just down the road as well! Max is great and takes good care of his guests!

    Would absolutely recommend this hostel for a quiet place to relax only a 2 minute drive from Playa Hermosa and about a 10 min drive from Jaco. On the way out, my car battery died and the hostel owners went above and beyond to help out; getting new jumper cables and running their car to charge mine - overall over an hour of their time. The rooms were clean and private w/AC and pancakes each morning were great as well. Would recommend for a small group of friends.

    Very quiet, lovely stay. Maxi, el jeffe, was a fine host. The place was clean, everything functioned well, super AC, gorgeous pool, LEAF-CUTTER ANTS!!!! outside of course, I did some David Attenborough filming to amaze my pals back in NY. Delicious coffee and a fine breakfast by the lovely Maria. Maxi went out of his way to be helpful, sending Australians to rescue me when I forgot my passport, but was helpful throughout my stay. The black sand beach was amazing. 5 min. away by loaner bike.

    Lovely hostel, with nice relaxed feel to it. A pancake breakfast was included which was delicious. The hostel owner was really helpful with giving us lifts to the bus stop as it’s a little far to walk, which was great. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, and nice hot water showers.

    Great family atmosphere, relaxed vibe, clean,... the pool area is really nice, the kitchen provides everything you need to cook and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff was so nice and very helpful. Great place if you like surf, because is near to great surf spot Playa Hermosa. My favourite Hostel I stayed on my trip in Costa Rica was here. I absolutely loved this place and would recommend it a 100 times over.

    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!

    They need to review their customer service because we had to ask for everything, the towel, the key for the room, breakfast hours, lockers, they just assume you know it when you chek in.. I don’t know They told us breakfast was included, so we chose scrambled eggs with toasts from the menu & they gave us two white pieces of bread with butter because the eggs wasn’t included with the room we took ... there is no really atmosphere we were about 5 people in the entire hostel. Location is good if y
