    Blue Trailz Surf Hostel was a home away from home! The hostel was small, with only 4 rooms, which made it easy to make fast friends with everyone coming from all over the world. I stayed in Costa Rica for about 1 month and my best memories were through this hostel and the great atmosphere that it offered. The staff is kind and always trying to make your life easier, the hostel is cleaned thoroughly everyday, and the rooms are air conditioned. 100% would recommend, I know I will be back soon:)

    AMAZING experience here!! One of the most friendly and social hostels I've stayed in. Staff was very helpful and friendly, and the surf lessons are great. Only thing was that there were a lot of little ants but I'm not sure they can do much about it. The kitchen facilities and surfing and being so close to the beach and clubs make it completely worth it!!

    This is the place if you want to surf surf surf twice a day everyday. The deal and boards that they have are great, 10$ a day rental right on the beach . The waves were great too but crowded often at certain times of day. That being said it’s small hostel and doesn’t have enough people to guarantee someone else will want to go out on a Friday/Saturday night. The age range is also very mixed. mosquitos in the rooms/ areas but you are on the beach and this is a good value .

    NICE PLACE, BUT RIGHT O A BUSY ROAD. The staff were very helpful, and the beach was a short walk away. Plenty of choices in eateries, from not very cheap to. Fairly expensive, Tamarindo is now a developed beach town with big hotels and more upscale things.
