Our multi-lingual staff is happy to provide recommendations on restaurants, bars, attractions, getting to your next destination and, of course, surfing.

Our “rancho” is the social heart of the hostel with rocking chairs, daybeds, and hammocks for you to enjoy while visiting with other guests and overlooking the lovely tropical garden which enjoys frequent visits from iguanas and howler monkeys. The chill-out atmosphere is enhanced by a great sound system and playlist, good vibes, the fastest wi-fi available in Costa Rica and interesting people from all over the world.

    Super cool and chill atmosphere! The staff were helpful and the $2 breakfast was solid. My only complaints are there are a lack of charging outlets and no communal bathroom. We had a blast at Pura Vida in Tamarindo!
