I spent a night in Jaco on a Saturday night while not finding any other option. The dorm was OK, although the cleanliness could really improve!
There was a leech in the shower and a few other insects dead on the floor in corners of the room.
So Yes, we are in a tropical place, but still...
The lady of the front was particularly cold, and almost unwelcoming, it's only after speaking spanish that she got a bit more opened. A warm welcome to the clients would definitely make a difference and make them feel "welcome".
The night was full of mosquitos, so thanks to my insect repellent otherwise you just get eaten.
The morning was maybe the worst, as we got awakened by the TV of main room, the kid of the family who runs it...i believe, just decided to put it loud. (not a damn idea that at 6:30 am the clients may want to sleep a bit more). And finally the kitchen smoke invaded the room, so it was impossible to sleep more.
Location is good, that's for sure. But I think you'd rather pay a bit more and go to Hostel Buddha which is next door, I haven't had the chance to sleep there, but it seemed to fullfill all qualitative points.
