I stayed 3 nights at Buddha House and met a great group of people there! It´s in an excellent location, right beside the bars and restaurants and 2 minutes walk from the beach. Yet it feels very calm and safe behind gates that close at night and with security. The staff were really friendly, helpdul and relaxed. The place is nicely decorated with lots of colours, has clean rooms and a chillout area with a little pool, table and chairs and hammocks. It feels like a big house. Thanks for a great stay!

I spent 4 nights at this place in the dorm room and it was the best hostel I have ever been to in Centralamerica. Clean facilities, rooms, showers, kitchen...The colorful ambience, the very friendly and funny but still professional staff and the central location made my stay unforgettable. I can highly recommend this place. I have been to two other places in Jaco before and I never felt that comfortable as at Buddha Hostel.

I stayed four nights in one of the private rooms and was impressed by what a great place it is. Good downtown location near all the shops and restaurants and only a 3 min walk to the beach. The property is a perfect place to relax and hangout with a nice layout, beautiful garden and amazing decor. The best thing about this place is the friendly staff that really went out of their way to be helpful and make our stay enjoyable. Definitely recommended and I will stay there again next time I'm in Jaco.

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!!
