    I had the most amazing time here! The hostel was cleaned daily, the staff were super friendly and the chill areas were inviting and catalysed a wholesome vibe! I would go again tomorrow!!! If you're conflicted about where to go, this is the place to be! The other travellers were very cool and accessible too, making it really easy if you're travelling solo! Also the yoga and surfing offered where all you could ask for!

    I loved this hostel so much I came back a second time! The atmosphere is great, and that’s really down to the staff there who are very helpful and friendly! It was really easy to make friends due to the super social communal spaces. Also, the surf school goes from the hostel so that’s great. They also offer lots of offer activities. I would definitely come back if I were ever in Costa Rica again.

    I loved my stay here! This was my first international solo trip and the staff and community were very friendly and inviting. The hostel offers surfing, scuba diving, yoga, salsa classes, etc… and a lot of us did additional excursions through a tour company called Natives Way. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    Great few days in Tamarindo. Great vibes and chill staff. Good location and value for money. AC was a welcomed surprise in 10-12 person dorm. Had one issue with my bed (first time in my whole trip) and the staff immediately remedied the issue. Good job and shout outs to the hostel crew :)

    For the price, you would have hoped for more. Virtually no security as the dorms are left unlocked. For it being so far off the main strip, one would think it would be less noisy but not the case. The Selina is a better option for quiet atmosphere.
