We stayed one month and a half in a private house, which is part of Cabinas The Corner. The house was well equipped- excellent kitchen, laundry machine, comfortable beds and ample space. But the best part was the personal treatment and attention- Michelle was very helpful during all our stay, always ready to help and making sure we have a good time and don't miss anything.
We highly recommend this place for tourists in Puerto Jimenez, if you are interested to stay in the private house- just ask them about it in the reception.

Nice hotel and room with hot water. Well located in Puerto Jimenez. Very nice person who is always ready to help you and always has a smile in her face. The price is worth it for the quality of everything. Needless to say I recommend this.

We stayed in the Cabinas by the bus station (Berta's place) which I believe is the cheaper of the two and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Berta is an inspiration to all - in her seventies and working hard to run a guesthouse day in day out! If you make the effort to speak to her in Spanish (as we are in Costa Rica after all!) you will find that she is a lovely woman who wants nothing more than to earn an honest living. I loved staying in a place run by locals where you have a real incentive to speak Spanish.

She cleans the hostel top to bottom every morning and is always on hand for any advice on buses or places to go. It amazed us that she got up with us at 4:30am to see us off and collect the room keys. She clearly takes great pride in running the place and keeps an eye on everything which makes you feel well assured that your belongings are safe.

We would highly recommend Berta's cabinas (by the bus station) as the perfect opportunity to break away from run-of-the-mill backpacker's hostels and get a more authentic experience. Not to mention the fact that we saw two species of beautiful toucans from the window everyday!

At this place you get a clean room with a bed and a fan. That's it. Main selling-point is that it's cheap (for Jimenez standards!!!) and that the family who runs it is really nice and helpful.
Shared or private bathrooms available.

Me and my girlfriend stayed 6 nights at cabinas the corner, and we couldn't ask for a better place.
The owner is one of nicest and hardworking man we ever met. He is very knowledgeable about all the stuff to do and all the animals that can be seen in the area (and he is also a birdwatcher) and will help you plan your stay.
Also the rest of the staff are extremely nice and helpful.
The rooms are very nice and clean with a ceiling fan, the shower has only cold water (but with the heat and humidity in puerto jimenez hot water are not very needed).
The kitchen is very (very) basic but satisfactory .
All in all its an excellent place to stay on budget and if we could we would have stayed more!

The hotel itself is nice and clean but what really amazed me was the friendly owner. He offered us to catch us up at the drake bay, went out with us in the night for spotting some animals, what he was doing really good and even gave us a lift to the ferry the next morning. So if you are looking for a calm and clean place to stay with a really friendly and helpful owner, stay at this place.

the hostel is run by an old lady and I think her granddaughter - both nice women. It doesn't have any luxury at all, but it is safe and clean and really cheap. As you mostly will stay in Puert Jimenez to do some acitivities from there on it is quite perfect, I'd say...

There are actually two hostels in Puerto Jimenez that are called 'Cabinas on the Corner'. I believe they belong to the same family. The first time we stayed there was two years ago and we stayed in the house close to the main bus station. This year we spent two nights in the house on the other side of the main street, above a little grocery store. The rooms are very simple but all have fans. The bathrooms were clean. Since both hostels have to be accessed through a metal gate, we had the feeling that the accommodation is safe. Please be aware that there is quite a lot of crime in Puerto Jimenez. Two years ago, they broke into one of the cabinas we stayed. Never leave valuables in the room!
Note that the hostels are right down town and it can be loud until late at night and the village roosters get up pretty early in the morning (as well as all the birds :-)

I stayed at this hostel on a couple of occasions and both times were Lovely stays. I always received a warm welcome and the staff are so friendly. Rooms are very clean with a great fan perfect for the January jimenez weather! Private rooms are perfect and showers are great. The dorm room is probably one of the best I’ve ever stayed in. No bunk beds. Individual single beds with very clean showers and toilets. You even get a towel too which is rare for dorm rooms!
Thanks for a lovely stay. I’ll sure I’ll be back again one day!
