    Simply amazing. I stayed there for 8 nights and everything about the Pipehouse was great. Felipe, the host, is very helpful and nice. He can basically help with anything you need. The Pipehouse itself is located just a few meters from the amazing beach. It's very clean and neat and the kitchen is well equipped for a home cooked meal. The outside gym is a dream for those who like a good workout. My only advice would be to go grocery shopping before getting to the Pipehouse.

    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.

    Fabulous, unique stay in Tamarindo. Purchase food at the supermercado to cook in the open air kitchen, or befriend someone with a care to commute to a Soda for dinner. Lots of couples in their 30's during my stay. Beautiful facilities; felt like a luxury stay compared to other hostels.

    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

    The place is very unique and we enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is really well equipped and they have an amazing outside gym. Also it is like 1min to the beach. However, if you are travelling as a couple with two big bagpacks, the pipe is just too small. The bed is also not the most comfortable.
