    Chill hostel in downtown Tamarindo across the street from the beach. Amazing location that is close to the beach but also restaurants, bars, grocery store and laundry. I took surf lessons through the hostel which were awesome but they also have boards for rental. Overall great place and chill vibe.

    I loved Blue Trailz. It is a small hostel, so you will meet everyone you're staying with. It is in the perfect location and the staff were amazing. Outdoor kitchen access was pretty nice too, not huge, but there is plenty of food near by.

    LOVE this hostel. The staff are so nice. The location is great, right across the street from the beach. They have a great selections of surf boards. It's a smaller hostel so you get to know everyone staying there which is so cool, it's very social but in a laid back way. Very fast wifi. No pool so you would want to be someone who surfs or likes to go in the ocean if you stay there.

    Cozy little hostel right on Tama’s surf spot. Beach is just across the street. Facilities could be improved like phone charger by the beds and a lobby toilet. Hard to rate atmosphere during COVID but the common area was ok.
