This is an amazing accommodation. We stayed here for three nights in January and it was such a great escape coming from Santo Domingo. The hostel is very clean, kitchen is very well equipped and the whole ambient is very nice and cozy. The Jarabacoa town is within walking distance (20 minutes) and a small but well stocked village store...

We were there last december. From the booking was not very clear that we had to share all even the bathroom with other guest. Having kids is not easy and Inbelieve it should be clarified.

I stayed here with 3 friends and 4 mountain bikes. Everything about this place is good, from facilities, aesthetics, friendliness and good advice. Comfortable beds, no mosquitos, great self catering. THis latter is critical as we ride hard and eat good. Being able to prepare expansive breakfast and nutritious evening meal is easy here. And the coffee and tea are...

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Jarabacoa Mountain Hostel and enjoyed every minute of my stay. From the moment you walk in, it is obvious that Molly and Rodolfo have put a great deal of thought into the hostel details and the comfort of their guests. This is definitely high value for your money.

Jarabacao Mountain Hostel is unbelievably modern, with every luxury you could wish for (large beds, spacious living areas, super fast wifi--even when all 25 of us were on it, and amazing outdoor living.) Not to mention, very accommodating staff. If you decide to leave the hostel (which is harder than you think due to the homey-feel) the staff will go...

A great place to use as a base for your Dominical Republic adventures. Not far from Parasailing, white water rafting, horse riding and lots of other great stuff.

One of the most modern and beautiful hostels I've seen even by traveling almost 30 countries around the globe. Really new, nice architecture, a little outside the center so you might need a taxi/moto at least for the first arrival. The single/couple rooms are large with nice comfortable beds (and about like a thousand pillows). The fan was a little...
