    I’ve been backpacking all over the world. Casa Aura is def on my Top3 Hostel list! Nothing to complain about! The vibe and atmosphere is everything. It’s need and clean. The staff takes really good care of the facilities and the guests. The breakfast is 10/10, all you need, different variation of fresh fruit, cereal, eggs, bread etc. If you need anything such as laundry or recommendations the staff is really helpful. Felt very comfortable, safe and relaxed. Extended my stay here twice:)

    I had booked 2 nights at Casa Aura, leaving myself flexibility to travel to other locations on the coast. I loved it so much I booked 2 more nights, staying a total of 4, and still was not ready to leave. Edwin and the staff are super nice, the breakfast and coffee are really good, the other guests were awesome, and the VIBES at this place are en punto. It’s the perfect relaxed pura vida vibe day and night, plus right on the beach. I can’t wait to come back to Casa Aura!!!

    Great place to stay. A/C too! Beds are super comfy. Felt super secure. Dude on guard 24/7 with flashlights and such, locked doors, wristbands for identification. Helpful finding my way around.This place makes your bed every day like a hotel.Breakfast leaves something to be desired, but the fresh fruit saves it. Great warmup before a proper breakfast downtown. Close enough to be every where, far enough to not hear it. Super awesome spot. Best hostel I have stayed at thus far easily. Way worth it.

    Edwing was literally the best front desk person I have ever experience in my hostel history. He bent over backwards to get stuff done for us. Incredible service at this hostel. Incredible location. Incredibly clean and the beds were the most comfy I’ve had at a hostel.

    Awesome place and staff. Edwin at the front desk was always a great help whenever we needed him. The cleaning staff were always so respectful and polite. Super relaxed setting, everybody is free to roam around and do as they please.

    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.

    Amazing small chill hostel. Great beds, working AC, a nice balcony connected to the dorm. Solid breakfast, Friendly staff who speaks good English. Hostel was unfortunately a little bit empty during my stay, would’ve loved to stay at this hostel when it’s full.

    This hostel is aesthetically pleasing, but really missed the mark during our stay. The location is near the central area of tamarindo, but is honestly at the very edge. When we stayed, there weren’t many people, and the front desk held our ID for over a day because there was no one there to collect payment/information as we arrived and left throughout the day. As others had mentioned, there are no lockers in the room and the room key is left in the door. The wifi was also out for our stay.
