This hotel was the best I have never been. It's was cheap and the room where amazing. I slept like a baby and the staff was really helpfull and made you feel like if you were at home. I won't say it twice, if you are searching for a real paradise just go there and enjoy your second home.
This place was nice to get off the crazy scene in Jaco . Hotel kangaroo provides a sanctuary for all the crazy stuff that goes on in jaco. one of the things that I liked was the rooms they are very clean and had style to them. all the air conditioners work. I think you can rent surfboards to go surfing but it's a cozy little place that will give you respite from the big city of Jaco
Our experience at Hotel Kangaroo was total fluke - We’re Aussies, so we picked the place because of its name and low price point. But our 3 nights here ended up being the highlight of our trip. From the second we walked in, Bryan and the boys made us feel like we were at home and went out of their way to show us a good time.The property is in a great, safe location and the rooms have everything you need (including great air-con!) Kitchen facilities are fine and the lounge area is where the magic happens - good tunes and good vibes all day-round! Wholeheartedly recommend this place, especially to first time travellers to Costa Rica.
We loved our initial 4 week stay at Hotel Kangaroo. Evan, Sebastian and team were so accommodating and have an awesome set up. Great location near the beach, rooms were spot on and we even decided to return for a second stay
The prices were great at this hostile the management was very friendly and helpful would definitely go back the pool was great clean The kitchen they had to cook your own food was wonderful stove fridge freezer everything very clean friendly dogs all round great place
This hostel is very special. The atmosphere is amazing and you always feel like home. There is a big pool, a good kitchen, and great people that can help you with everything you need, including bicycle and surfboard. Deeply recommended!
Nice hostel with amazing owners. They made us feel so welcomed and assisted us when wanting to venture out. They even did our laundry! Within walking distance to the beach. There were also a few dogs and a cat. Definitely a homey feel.
My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights but could have stayed for so much longer. We arrived late on our first night and immediately felt welcome and inclined to join a group in the common area, and that feeling stayed with us our whole stay. From the owner to the staff to the dogs, everyone was happy to sit and chat or simply let you get on with relaxing. An amazing vibe and place to stay we are already planning our next visit and feel as though we left goos friends behind. Thanks guys for everything
Arriving to five beautiful dogs excited to see who their next visitors would be was the warmest of welcomes. Followed by two of the staff members who gave us a quick tour. The hostel is exactly what a hostel should be. Relaxed, social, and safe. Felt comfortable leaving items out on the side whilst you popped back to the room or went for a dip in the pool or play water volleyball! It was great! The members of staff were very welcoming and genuinely interested to find out about you and getting you involved in anything that was happening. With one a keen surfer, encouraging you to take the surf boards out for a go on the waves (for free!), a mere 100 metres from the entrance. They made some great recommendations on where to eat and bars to go to, we were just sad we had to leave! Would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Jaco but be prepared for some friendly dogs and a chilled out cat, with the occasional scarlet macaw flying overhead whilst in the pool! Bliss!! …
If you want to come to Jaco to surf, chill and generally enjoy pura vida, then stay at Hotel Kangaroo. The rooms are basic but comfortable and very clean, the bathrooms have hot water, the pool is clean and warm, free wifi that actually works really well, the chill out space basic but has everything you need, there is a kitchen and a fridge so you can cook for yourself. The staff here are super friendly and really make you feel at home. So much so that in one trip I came back for a second stay at Hotel Kangaroo and stayed for a week! The location is great for the beach and only a 10 minute walk into town. This place has all the bang for your buck!
