    Absolutely top notch. Easily one of the nicest hostels I’ve been to. The owners make you feel like you’re at home. I will definitely stay again next time I’m in Costa Rica!

    It is a really nice place where to stay. It's cozy and it even welcomes whole families with children. It can be an upside or a downside depending on how you see it, but we enjoyed our stay in one of the most beautiful hostels in town.

    Enjoyed our stay. Staff was very nice. No breakfast provided, but a full kitchen and great lobby area. Very cool setup with the rooms wrapped around the perimeter and the pool and lobby in the middle. Creates a community feel that can get lively. Comfortable rooms, too.

    Not a bad place... It is clean and safe, and the staff is super and helpful! The atmosphere is a tad on the dull side, not the place if looking to mingle a lot. But overall I had a good stay!

    The hostel is good located, close to the beach and the staff was very helpfull. The biggest problem I had with my stay was the cleaning. The dorm it self had dead cockroaches under the bed, and alive one as well.. it didn’t look like the bathroom on the dorm has ever been cleaned. And the kitchen we could use was really gross as well. I guess I am a little picky, more then usual, but other then that it was a great stay

    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
