    Best hostel in tamarindo hands down. A pretty quick walk to anywhere in town and the hostel is really safe. Multiple nights people left their phones or chargers or speakers or whatever outside overnight and nothing ever went missing. The staff is incredible and are happy to help with absolutely anything, especially Andrés. He knows basically everything there is to know about the area and will immediately go out of his way to answer any questions he didn’t know.

    This Hostel was absolutely amazing. First time in a hostel, but the environment, amenities, and the people were all amazing. Stayed in the 6 person room, AC worked great, beds were very comfortable and shower was clean. Outside environment very fun and easy for making friends. Proximity to beach is perfect and board rental prices are hard to beat. Definitely recommend.

    Place is awesome, location couldn't be better for surfing and the boards they have available are great for starters or people with experience. There was 2 6 person dorms and the upstairs had two privates which I believe they convert into 2 more dorms during high season so could be a little on the lonely side if the place isn't full but my entire stay had at least 10 people so I had a blast. Would definitely stay here again. AC was awesome and the rooms were well maintained daily.

    A wonderful, small hostel right in the center of town and across the street from the beach. It was great for solo travelers and has a nice outdoor space for everyone to hang out together at night. The staff was great and went above and beyond to help out!

    Solid hostel with a good location to the beach. I enjoyed the common area. It was a pretty relaxed vibe. The rooms were simple, but sufficient, cleaned daily, which was nice because showers got gross from the sand from the beach (not their problem). I had a good experience, would stay again.

    Overall I had a great time! The staff/host's went above and beyond every night I was there. The only real down side (with the hostel) is how much the surf lessons cost $45USD for 2 hours). The actual area (Tamarindo, Costa Rica), I think is overrated. The beach was good for surfing, but it was smaller than I thought it would be. Also there are a lot of shady characters in town. So be careful and never walk alone at night. But again overall great time!

    Everyone here is REALLY nice and helpful. Great location—good restaurants literally right next door & right across the street from the beach. I would stay here again for the social aspect, but the rooms were lacking in my opinion. There weren’t enough electrical outlets & the pillows were kinda moldy. Obviously it’s difficult to maintain cleanliness when people are constantly coming from the beach with sand & wet clothes. Luckily, the rooms had A/C & I made tons of friends here. Great for solos!
