I initially booked to stay here for two weeks, but ended up staying for a month, and then coming back again after being in south america. Absolutely loved staying at the hostel, it felt like home. I want to go back!

As a group of girls studying abroad here in Costa Rica, Mini Camas was the perfect place for us during our weekend stay in Jacó. It is affordable, welcoming, clean, and groovy. It's a very short walk (3 min) from the excitement of el centro but removed enough from it to relax. The rasta colored gates and the hammock at...

I roamed around Costa Rica for about a month and stayed at a few different hostels (Montezuma, La Fortuna, San Jose...). This place was most definitely my favorite.
