This place felt really unclean. We booked for 2 nights but we didn't even stay. We had to leave and book a hotel instead. Jaco in general is disgusting though so I'm not surprised this hostel wasn't nice. The staff however were lovely but the rest was a bit of a nightmare.

Where do I Start, Unbelievable Hostel, owner Will takes time out of his day to make sure you make the most of your stay in Jaco, including being our hike guide and also putting events in which it is incredibly easy to meet people Only second hostel I’ve stayed in, got another 3 and a half months left, if anything beats this then fair play
