Great atmosphere and great facilities. Super close to everything.


This hostel had the best ambiance and the staff were super chill and friendly. The owner was a really cool guy. Had a great time there!


Oveja negra is a great beach hostel to get to know people and have a nice party. The bar features great bears for good price and the owners are really nice. The showers and stalls get proper cleaning but they'll naturally get somewhat dirty, but nothing to complain about. Great place to stay. Awesome people. Best option to stay in Tamarindo.


Great location and atmosphere ! Very close to the beach and everything in Tamarindo and the hostel has an awesome surf vibe. It was great to hang out at night and even has a surf shop attached and offers lessons/rentals. Staff was friendly and helpful, too. one of the cooler hostels I've been to. Just be warned its quite loud in the rooms next to the bar- music was blaring until at least 1 am on the weekends . The bathrooms weren't super clean, but about what you'd expevt for a beach hostel.
