You don't go to this hostile because it's clean or because there are good facilities you go here because it is the best social atmosphere in tamarindo and it's cheap. People are really friendly and it's easy to make new friends.

This hostel offered the kind of atmosphere that is the reason to travel. This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at and it's strictly due to the owner, Tomas, and his choice of staff. They have created a relaxed oasis away from the tourist frenzy of Tamarindo where you will find 'lifers' - expats who live amongst the local culture and a band of wandering misfits that offer an inclusive, caring community. Pick-up football matches, flamenco performances and relaxing in a hammock, the best

I hate to leave this review. I've stayed here several times in the past, but this time it was so cheap and stinky, my girlfriend refused to stay there. So we left and stayed somewhere else. I hate to even say this because the owners are a couple of nice guys and the employees seam okay. Common area is nice. Honestly thought, there are a lot nicer places for not much more money in Tamarindo.

Really good price ! 5$US/night. The ambiance was nice. Kitchen, pool table, ping pong table, hammock, games . The staff helped us find transportation for our next destination. They were very chill ! Well located about 400m from the beach.

I have to admit that my friend and I were not totally impressed upon arrival. The place was basic and the room felt serviceable at best. However, the common area is nice and friendly, and the owner, Tomas, more than made up for the other areas with his great service. He oriented us to the town, advised us on where to go and how to get good deals, and was always there for anything we needed.
