    Fabulous

    We enjoyed our stay at this hostel and the price for Tamarindo is good. Location is a short walk down to the beach and there are a selection of nice cafes. Only downside was our room was not particularly clean. There was also a cockroach and a millipede inside. Would still recommend.

    Very Good

    Manager & other guests were all extremely kind & courteous. I stayed in one of the 8-bed dorms. Facilities were rustic and aged, but tidy enough. Sheets were minimal, and clean. I don't know that I would have used the kitchen without washing all my dishes first. Location was excellent, and I was surprised at how courteous the party next door was with their music. You get what you pay for - it was hella cheap!

    Unprofessional/unfriendly staff, our room wasn't ready 2 hours after check in for some mysterious reason . . . When we asked if they provided towels, the host responded, "um, if they're dry..." Ended up staying somewhere else.
