    Bonga House in Tamarindo is great place to stay. It has a big pool and nice rooms. The location is excellent, the Hostel is very calm and you can walk to the center and the beach. The staff is very kind and helpful. The only thing that you need to consider is that the place does not have a place to cook or prepare your own food.

    Great place , clean facilities and good vibes (don’t rly understand the other negative reviews). Prices in line with other hostels. Pool is nice too. Good if you want somewhere nice to chill and use as a base to go to other hostels or locations to party 👌

    A good place to stay for a couple of nights. It did not have that “hostel vibe” I am used to as it seemed like there were only a couple people there with one dorm room. It was very quiet, the rooms had AC, and it was very clean. Staff was very nice!

    Hostel is in an excellent location right next to downtown Tamarindo. There is no free breakfast but you can get muffins for $2 or $3 at the front desk. The dorms are pretty standard, but the bathrooms are larger and nicer than most other hostel bathrooms. There are some bugs (ants etc.) but that's to be expected near the beach/in a jungle-y country.

    Nice mellow hostel in walking distance to everything. The WiFi was awful in the back hostel and the outlets didn’t work all the time. Other than that it was nice to be able to go back and not have to worry about noise or being distrusted by late night partying.

    Staff is very kind and worked hard to help us in a pinch. It's a little above my desired price range, but if you want hotel feel for less money, this is the place to be! Very tranquil. People keep a little bit more to themselves, but it's small enough that making friends with other guests isn't hard. Location is great as it's just off of the main road. Yard is cute for pictures by the pool.

    Very Good

    We stayed here for one night only. Bonga has a very nice feel when you walk in (big pool and garden area). Room was also very nice and clean, however there was a cockroach in the closet which we understand is what you get when you stay in Costa Rica. The only downside was the extreme lack of kitchen facilities if you are here to self-cater, if not there is a restaurant in the hostel which seems very nice. Lastly, some basic Spanish skills will come in handy as a few staff don’t speak English.
