It was only suppose to be for 1 night......I ended up staying 5 nights! The rooms are impecably clean, beautifully decorated and spacious. The staff are super friendly and sweet...what dolls! Maricela and Manuela assisted me with everything that I needed. The social area is kitted out well with everything at your disposal for cooking and lounging. I even enjoyed...

This place has the best hospitality with great pricing. I would recommend the Buddha House to anyone that comes to Jaco. The rooms are very very clean and the staff goes out of their way to make sure your stay as pleasant as possible!

We were pleasantly surprised. Location is great. Surprisingly quiet for being on the main street in the middle of everything. Air conditioning worked fine. (You really want A/C in Jaco, and I couldn't find many "budget" options with A/C. Maricela and staff were excellent. Great value for the price. Recommended.

We started and ended our vacation at the Budda House. We felt safe and completely relaxed. Maricela and Manuela welcomed us with open arms making us feel at home immediately. We found the hotel clean and quiet with respectful guests. Maricela provided suggestions for traveling, dining, and navigating our departure from Costa Rica. The hammocks, bean bag chairs, and pool...

I was only planning on staying for two nights and I ended up staying for 8, in no small part due to the incredibly warm and friendly service I received from Maricela. This lady is an absolute gem - make sure you hold onto her! I really enjoyed my stay in room 3, having my own hammock on the balcony...

Great hostel in the heart of Jaco, one block away from the beach and easy to walk everywhere from there. At night things can get a bit crazy in Jaco, but when you are in the hostel, feels like you are in a different place, very calm and relaxing environment. Decoration is lovely, and staff are very welcoming. Hostel has...

Best place we stayed in Costa Rica. We drove here straight from the airport and the staff welcomed us and got us set up. The main drag in Jaco is relatively chaotic, but as soon as you enter the hostel, it feels like an oasis. Super comfortable, nice rooms, great ambiance, cute little pool. We loved it. We constantly wished...

We stayed here for two nights during our Pacific coast tour. The staff were really lovely and friendly, the communal area was great with a lovely very clean kitchen, outside eating area and very refreshing pool. Fresh coffee in the morning was amazing. This Hostel is very central to Jaco's lively Main Street and the beach, so perfect for surfers...
