    I could not recommend this hostel enough! Casa Aura was everything my boyfriend and I could have wanted in a place to relax on the beach. It is a short 1 min walk to the beach, there are a ton of restaurants in the area and the staff was so wonderful. We asked for recommendations of where to eat dinner one night and we were given a bunch of different options. The recommendation we went with was incredible (i cannot remember the name of the restaurant but the food was soo good). STAY HERE! :) :)

    This is undoubtedly the B.E.S.T hostel in the Taramindo area. I went through an unexpectedly strange situation at a different hostel in the same area that led me to search for a new hostel at the very last minute, but I luckily reserved a night at this hostel around 9pm and got to the hostel by 9:45pm. Once I entered, I felt so comfortable and the security guard was super friendly. Then what happened the following morning? Excellent views of the beach and breakfast/coffee! Again, the best! 👍🤙

    Perfect hostel. Ideal location, clean and very helpful. On our way out the owner made us a map detailing things to do and see in the surrounding areas and it honestly topped off our trip to costa rica. Again, perfect location can't be exaggerated enough 💯

    Casa Aura was the perfect spot for me while surfing two weeks in Tamarindo. It was well-worth the slightly higher cost, primarily because of the outstanding location - right on the beach and comfortably away from the tourist-y scene in town - and incredible facilities. It’s so nice there. On top of that the staff is top-notch and the breakfast is delicious. The only thing I’d note is that it’s not a super social hostel, so don’t expect to come here to party and meet lots of people (I wasn’t).

    The room stays unlocked and there aren’t lockers, but they always have people at the front desk and out front at night, as well as video cameras. Nothing of mine was taken, but it would’ve been relatively easy for someone to do if they wanted. Other than that, it is a beautiful hostel with a great location! Thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

    This place is great. My only wish is the dorms would have some lockers but they are very clean. The breakfast is also the best with it being buffet style.

    Pros: phenomenal location (right on the beach), very clean, comfortable, great AC, great amenities (hammocks, pool table, workout area, volleyball net) Cons: right next to the main road, poor insulation (lots of noise from traffic and nearby clubs, making it difficult to sleep), there are only 8 dorm beds and they’re the most expensive in town so the hostel wasn’t full and there’s not much atmosphere as a result I ended up moving to find more opportunities to socialize and get better sleep

    The location on the beach was amazing and breakfast great and very clean overall, however I didn't feel the dorm was worth it I expected a bit more with the high price and rating. There's no lockers and only 1 bathroom (not even a toilet in any communal area) people from other hostels got let in on a Saturday evening, which made me feel a bit uneasy with no lockers. I also went to chill and didn't expect a pre night out drinking session inside the hostel

    Mixed feelings regarding the Casa Aura - take your money elsewhere if you’re considering the 8 person doom. There are no lockers in your room, and no bathrooms in the common area. Staff are able to lock valuables in a safe at reception, but you can only access during specific hours. Common areas are great - hammocks and wonderful breakfast. Location on the beach is redeeming, but keep in mind in Tamarindo, everything is near the beach. Beside a club that is insanely loud Fri-Sun.
