My friend and I traveled for our first time in Costa Rica and fell upon Jaco Inn through Air BnB. We stayed three nights in the hangar and returned again for another two night stay in their shared quarters. The staff at Jaco Inn were very accommodating and beyond friendly. The premises were very clean and well kept. Restaurants and...

I stumbled upon this place on a short trip to Costa Rica and it was everything I could imagine and more! A humble little spot with a chill vibe and welcoming staff to make you feel right at home. Super close to the beach- about a 2 min walk, and great surf lessons offered through the hostel. Loads of good...

I had a short but really great stay at Jaco Inn. Everyone was more than welcoming, gave me great recommendations, and made me feel right at home. Especially travelling alone, I didn't feel unsafe for a moment. The hangar was clean and cosy, it was in the heart of Jaco and very close to the beach. Would definitely recommend staying...

The staff and owner are super nice, welcoming, and accommodating with anything needed. They also have great recommendations for things to do in the area. Cute hostel with shared and private rooms, great community area where it's easy to meet other travelers and people to go on adventures with. Highly recommended!!!

Located conveniently in the center of town, but nestled cozily amongst a beautiful landscape. Whether you are looking for a relaxed stay, or a party, or both, this place delivers. Make yourself at home, and become part of the family.

I stumbled across Jaco Inn when looking for a place and I am very happy I found it. The owner Juan and his team, Brian and Estaban, are super professional and friendly. The hostel is tucked away down a driveway right in the center of Jaco, so you can literally walk anywhere you need. The dorms were very big and...

I stayed here for almost a month and considered staying forever. This hostel makes you feel like you're at home. There is a shared kitchen and living room, and a courtyard to hangout with during the day to escape the sun. I made lifelong friends in Bryan who works there and Juan whos family owns the place. Esteban will also...

Our time in Jaco was our favorite part of our trip. Juan and Bryan made our time there so much fun. The old hangar is insanely cool. The room was spacious, we had our own bathroom, and everything was clean. The shared areas were nice and clean as well. Juan and Bryan helped us plan adventures like ziplining, a crocodile...
