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...

Buddha House is amazing. The photos are accurate. Our room (private room) was well decorated and well appointed with TV, air conditioning, room safe and nice bathroom. The staff, Marcella and Miguel, were extremely nice and helpful. It is located right in the middle of Jaco with a fun dance club and other great bars nearby as well as a...

I originally booked Buddha House hotel for 2 nights but ended up staying on another night I loved it so much. I had a private room with bathroom and it was huge with a king sized bed! Great value for money. It is fantastically located in the centre of Jaco a short walk from the beach. Mainly I just loved...

My 'one night' in Jaco kept extending due to the charm of this hostel. Set back from the busy road, our air conditioned room in the main house was peaceful, tastefully decorated and a sanctuary to come back to after a busy day exploring the local area. After travelling for a few months this hostel is a dream - a...
