    Perfect 10. I have been to over 20 different countries and stayed in hostels in them all, and this was likely the best one of them all. Tons of facilities, great accommodations and AC made the rooms great for sleep. Plenty of activities in a great location. Massages and workouts available which is awesome, as well as a yoga studio. Hostel is amazingly run and made accommodation to have my friend stay at the hostel, even though they were out of beds. Class acts.

    Amazing vibe!! Super chill hostel centrally located in Tamarindo, near a supermarket, a bank & a lot of restaurants. The staff over there was fantastic! Really welcoming and helpful. We will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. A special thank you to Manu at the reception, Nico and Fernando for the beautiful dives & snorkel, to Stephanie for the aerial yoga class and to Pablo for the surf lessons!! :) Justine, Meagan & Janique

    Amazing owners and staff making the whole stay a pleasure. Tamarindo is very small so you're always close to everything you need.

    We really liked staying here! It had a laid back atmosphere and nice hang out areas. I was worried about it being a party hostel but that wasn't the case. 10-15 min walk to the main beach. We liked the metal shelving in the room because it was useful to put all of our wet beach stuff on to dry out. Limited parking, at one point we were blocking a car and they wanted to hold onto our keys to move it if needed which we didn't like because it was a rental but space opened up to move it later.

    Great hostel, great staff, great energy. Spacious kitchen and the pool is awesome! Be sure to take some time to visit the workshops and classes they have in the gym. I took the flow class. I would give this place a 10/10 but there isn’t any hot water. But honestly costa is hot anyways so it isn’t a big deal for me.

    Friendly, helpful staff. Hostel is centrally located. AC works really well! Rooms are basic but have all you need. Bed was not too comfortable as you could feel the springs, but nice pillows and clean accommodations :)

    It was extremely loud, dirty, i was overcharged and the private room was a rip off at 50$. There are way better and cheaper places to stay in Tamarindo
