Big garden, entrance to the beach, view from the private room for two.
Not every bathroom was clean, but mostly Yes. Generally the buildings are not visually great.
Liberty, vibe and confidence
Needs drinkable water and a bit of commodities
Pretty cheap, let me check in at 11 pm, with their 24 front desk.
Nice access to the beach
Staff didn't really help, the structure didn't respect the quiet time at night although there were not a lot of people as guest . Bikes available were old and not well functioning.
They have far too many beds for the facilities. The area we were in had one toilet/ shower for 100 people. This meant there was always a queue and they couldn’t keep on top of cleaning. They don’t really clean the tent area, just brush the dust away, so you can see old food and ear buds within the grates the floor is made up of. We spent 3 nights here and got no sleep the whole time. They have terrible music pounding through the hostel even until 4am. The whole place was full of people taking drugs. Even at 2pm we wanted to sit by the beach but felt so uncomfortable with people snorting drugs from the table next to us that we couldn’t. The staff are also really unhelpful and even though they supposedly have a tour desk when we asked the hostel said they didn’t have any tours. We’ve been backpacking for 9 months and this is by far the worst place we’ve stayed.
With a stay at Rocking Js in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, you'll be within a 15-minute drive of Punta Uva Beach and Cahuita National Park. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and a library. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free valet parking is available onsite.
