we had an amazing stay at Buddha house! was supposed to be there for two days but ended up staying for five. the atmosphere is so chill and welcoming. front desk staff is super warm and helpful. kitchen and common space area very inviting and beautifully decorated. pool is nice too! we took advantage of bike and surfboard rentals. rooms were big and pretty as well! bathrooms are very clean. located very centrally just a block away from the beach. totally exceeded our expectations. i am already planning a trip back!!

Upon arriving in Jaco, the people at the Buddha Hostel made things very easy to get situated. The staff was easy to chat with, being my Spanish isn't greatest. They were very informative when it came to places to eat, pubs/bars to checkout, tours to check out etc.

There is a pub right next door which can be a bit loud at night on the weekends if you are looking for rest and relaxation.

Overall, a great experience being that I felt very safe at Buddha Hostel and this would be the place that I stay at when again visiting Jaco.

Room Tip: The private room (#6 I believe) had 2 beds which made it good for having 2 people.

Everything about this hostel is really nice- the rooms, the staff who are so lovely and willing to help, the facilities (full kitchen and pool) and the location. It's a little bit pricier than other hostels but worth every cent! Great hostel!

Great place to meet people with a chill safe vibe. Myself and two other great kings rested our crowns at the Buddah hostel in the center of Jaco Beach. We stayed one night and had clean room with good front desk service and local recommendation of things to do.

Since this hostel is fairly new it is still clean and shiny for the most part. The prices are a bit higher than other hostels in Jaco, but you're paying for a central location & the nicer, newer facilities. The communal area with kitchen is super nice with a big refrigerator & everything you need to prepare legit meals. Nice big dining table facing the cute little pool. Security is legit, they lock the gate to the place after 10pm & you need your key to get in. The receptionist was very nice & let me leave my backpack there all day after I checked out. They keep the shared bathrooms really tidy, usually cleaning them multiple times per day. I had a room with a window facing the courtyard/parking area in the center & the curtains on the window were totally sheer, meaning anytime I was changing pretty much anyone walking by could see into my room, not very convenient, but just required better timing on my part. The only downside to the central location is the noise at night from Orange Pub next door. This is one of my favorite bars in Jaco, but if you're looking to get some quality sleep definitely bring some earplugs & an eye mask.
