    I enjoyed the Pura Vida mini hostel. Staff was really helpful with travel plans and letting you know about things going on in Tamarindo. The hostel is just a bit off the beaten path but it's a really quick walk to the main road. The bathroom had some plumbing issues while I was there so it was a bit of a mess, but I think that was out of the ordinary. Had my own fan in the dorm room, which was awesome :) Heads up -- laundry is $12 per load.
