I stayed at The Buddha House recently for 8 days and had an awesome experience. The private room I got was beautiful, spacious, had a private washroom and A/C and the beds were really comfortable. I looked around at a bunch of the really nice rooms in Jaco and found the Buddha house to be reasonably priced when looking at...

Staff were very lovely and very helpful. The room was lovely-it had very exotic vibes, as you would expect from somewhere called the Buddha House I guess. I had hired a private room and it came with a private outdoor seating area, hammock and picnic area, with a tropical view of the private garden. Nice dipping pool. All this right...

Maricella, Maricella, Maricella, helpful when booking on the telephone, via email and during our stay. An employee who loves her job and someone who all companies would love to have on their team. The Budda House was a quiet retreat well worth our visit, two blocks to the beach and groceries with shops and restaurants all around. But, the pots...

Passably clean. Bed was at best adequate. Sheets and bed covering were dingy. Toilet seat was broken. Louvered window was missing a pane. Special note re the loud bar directly across the street. Don't know when it stopped but was going strong at midnight. Bery affordable. Staff was absolutely excellent - very helpful. Located in the center of the city....

Love this place. Newly remodeled, clean, fair and honest staff/prices, and very chill with good vibes. Perfect location next to great restaurants and beach. I felt very safe here unlike other hotels I wrote reviews about in Jaco.

The Hostel itself is great, clean, good amenities, decent communal kitchen, relaxing pool. Rooms are nice, especially the ones with air-conditioning. But what sets this Hostel apart is its extremely friendly Management and staff, so welcoming and helpful. Thank you Budda House for making me feel at home!

For $60 for a double room and private bathroom, this is easily the best deal going in Costa Rica. Rooms are air-conditioned and a nice break from the humidity, which is about 95%. Rooms look recently renovated, have funky touches, and everything is spotless. Staff are helpful, knowledgeable, and get you settled and comfortable. I thought I was too old...

We got off of bus at the main stop just outside of town. We mistakenly thought the chain hotels and casino were "in Jaco". A short, less than 2 km walk took us into the lively beach town of Jaco. The Buddha house was a garden paradise. There was a tranquility about this place even with all the liveliness of...

I stayed here on a Monday night with my girlfriend in a private room. The location is brilliant, the decor in the newer rooms is fantastic and the showers are great. However there is one critical issue, the place is located right next to a large bar that blasted music non stop from 9pm to 5am on a MONDAY! Now...

We stayed on a Friday night. Hotel is in very good shape, staff were friendly and helpful. Location is smack in the center of town, so it's easy to get to the bus, restaurants, beach and bars. Hotel has been recently decorated and looks great. Downside however is the noise on a Friday night (it might not be like that...
