    I stayed at La Botella for over a week. The staff were some of the nicest I have ever met. Shoutouts to Paula and David- ya'll are the best!! I met some of the best humans of life there, travellers and workers alike. Everyone was so down to earth, and I had probably way too much fun in Tamarindo truthfully. I was able to get lots of work done there, and the workout studio was amazing for workouts. It is close enough to everything!! Solid value for sure! I will return for sure!!

    I had an amazing time here! Great place with awesome staff who always made me feel welcome and part of the family. There is a perfect balance between relaxing and partying here. Great place all around and easy to get to anywhere in Tamarindo. David was a great staff member who made sure that everyone had what they needed and had a great time! I would come back to this hostel 100%

    This hostel was such a great place to meet people. Everyone was super friendly and easy to talk to. It’s very central and honestly so much better than the Selina hostel. The pool is nice (although could be cleaner) the staff were lovely and it was such a good atmosphere. It was my first stop in Costa Rica and I met people to travel onwards with almost instantly

    The staff where very friendly, it’s a little set back from the main strip of Tamarindo, which was nice being away from all the noise. Had a gym studio space which was great for doing any exercise. At night there seemed to be drinking games going on so more party in the evening but still a chill atmosphere

    Incredible staff! Super friendly and helpful! (Deserve an 11 here.) Went during pandemic so maybe atmosphere is different during other times, but everything basically shuts down by 10ish pm. The water went out a few times, only the upstairs rooms seem to have hot water.

    Got me + gf a private room here. The room itself was spacious, but the floors/shower/etc all were a bit dirty. The location is kinda far from surf breaks, though reaching the beach doesn't take long. The staff here are all so amazing, and the vibe is super relaxed. Wifi/internet is okay but inconsistent, so I'd recommend working from Selina. Not the hostels fault, but the water company shut off water for 2 of the days we stayed, so be aware that could happen.

    Lovely looking hostel with a great, open and big kitchen. Pool is nice and rooms are clean. However the vibes aren’t really it as the security guard shuts everything down at 11pm and takes his job VERY seriously- as in you have to have lights off and if you’re loud he peers through the window with a torch and then knocks on the door. Big getting told off by a teacher on a school trip vibe. Other than that great 😂

    In my opinion, I think this hostel is a little dirty and run down and the dorm bathrooms were not clean. There was a fitness studio that guests can use which was the highlight of my stay. There is a great kitchen, its very big and well maintained. Lots of restaurants and a grocery store a short walk away which was convenient but the dorm rooms were just not up to standard for me.
