    My sister and I had such an amazing stay here at the Pipe House. What an amazing place to get away or to practice surfing. The accommodations were amazing and the staff was extremely nice! Each pipe has its own AC and there are lots of cooking utensils and fridge space in the shared kitchen. I recommend this place to everyone!

    The Pipe House is easily the most unique place I have ever stayed at - and 1 min walk from Playa Grande - incredibly quiet and beautiful. The vibe was primarily late 20s to 30s couples. Very chill and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful time after staying in Tamarindo. The area is remote, has a couple restaurants and a (teeny) grocery store - stock up on groceries before you come! We had a great surf lesson with the Pipe House’s owner, Felipe! Highly recommend this place!

    Loved my stay here! It’s separate from Tamarindo, but you also have pretty easy access by taking a ferry. Such a great location right by the beach. It was very unique and comfortable Felipe was so helpful. I would stay here again for sure!

    I loved this place! Such a unique experience and Felipe was so kind and always available to help. I had to move hostels half way through my stay in Tamarindo because there was one day I missed the boat over to Playa Grande and needed to take a 40 minute ($30) taxi back to the hostel. If you can make it work, it’s definitely worth the stay

    Really nice place! The pipes are quite small, not really area to put bags (and we only had a backpack each). storage area would have been great. The owner was nice. The gym onsite is amazing! Very quiet area and hostel, mostly couples. My friend and I just wanted a quiet night away from hostel dorms so it was nice to mix it up. However for the price not sure if it was worth it. Only one night was needed, we were kinda bored not much to do.

    Sleeping in a very expensive sewer that you can't even stand up in or store your luggage in is not my idea of fun. The host claims it is all about being eco, yet there were no recycling facilities or any other "eco" considerations. Given the extortionate price, I suspect he his more concerned about lining his back pocket.
