    Lovely hostel. Host went above and beyond for us. 1 minute walk to the beach. Incredible vibe and really clean. Best place we’ve stayed in Costa Rica. Wish we had time to do surfing lessons, would definitely recommend booking with host. Would go back in a heartbeat

    Pipe house is one of the coolest hostels I’ve ever stayed at. Highly recommend! The host Filipe was absolutely wonderful- very helpful and extremely kind. This hostel is located right on the beach- we caught a breathtaking sunset when we arrived! Tamarindo is easily accessible to walk to during the day from Pipe house. A walk down the beach 5-10 minutes and catch a boat across the river for $2/person. Each pipe has AC too! Very clean units/ bathrooms and the atmosphere was great. Will be back!

    This was such a nice place. The owner was very kind and helpfull. The atmosphere was so relaxing. After having stayed a couple of days in the center of Tamarindo it was amazing to stay somewhere less crowded. We didnt have a car, so we got groceries in Tamarindo and took the boat to the Pipe House. This was very easy! Restaurants and supermarkets are limited at playa grande

    I rarely write reviews but Pipehouse was my favorite accommodation in Costa Rica! The location is amazing - right next to the stunning beach. If you want to go to lively Tamarindo, it's just a ferry hop away. The atmosphere is very relaxing and even as a solo traveler I found company, although there were many couples staying here. Everything is very clean. Also, Felipe, the owner, is fantastic - welcoming, friendly, helpful and always there if you need advice or anything. I’ll be back when in CR

    A must stay during your trip in Costa Rica! Great people, environment, location. Rooms were super cute and the Air conditioning was a life saver. Recommend going to a large supermarket before entering the area as the grocery stores around are very small, expensive and limited.

    What a great place! Awesome stay, especially as solo. The pipe was the perfect size for one person. AC. Facilities are clean, amazing beach only about a minute from the place. Definitely need a car to be in Playa Grande, not much at all in walking distance unless you take the cheap boat over the estuary. Very nice to spend the day in Tamarindo and have a secluded, quiet space to go back to as the boats stopped running between 5-5:45. I was not here to party so it was the perfect mix.

    My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at Pipe House! It was one of the most unique hostels we could have ever stayed in. We were pleasantly surprised with the gym that was included! The AC was such a luxury in the hot sun as well. I would recommend Pipe House to all of my family members and friends, and if I ever return to Costa Rica, I would certainly stay again! Felipe was so kind and a pleasure to work with!
