This place has a great location right in the middle of everything. It's not on the beach, but it's literally a two minute walk away. Clean rooms, but what really sets this place apart is Mari, who went out of her way to organize tours. She even let me borrow her bike to ride down and purchase my bus ticket....

We stayed in Jaco one night in preparation for the speed boat to Montezuma early the next morning. The facility was very bright and vibrant and clean. There was a nice pool. We got a private room with AC which was very nice. It's right on the main strip in Jaco so within quick walking distance of many restaurants and...

Then moved into a private with air con for the next 6 days. Room was stellar. Great facilities, hot water, comfy beds everything. The...

The room was clean, with Wi Fi, outside private courtyard with table, chairs, and hammock. Pool and kitchen near our room. Private bath, wall safe, and queen size bed. Felt very comfortable, felt...

2 days prior to arriving to Jaco, we didn't have any room booked and decided to chance it. We looked at other hotels in Jaco which is either very pricy & some not a very nice place or a family friendly accommodation. We spoke to one of the concierge who manages Buddha House Boutique hostel so we decided to see...

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...
