Fully equipped with stoves, fridges, microwave, blender, hot water kettle, tons of pots and pans to cook in...did we mention it’s always neat and clean?

Over the years we have established a valuable business relations with other business owners and this is the reason why our guests enjoy special discounts and perks. Such as discounted surf lessons and surfboard rentals (We have a surf instructor on site).

*** Staff ***
Many people book one night and say a week or more...why? Well not only because the hostel is super chilled and comfy but also because our bilingual staff will go the extra mile for you to feel welcomed and comfortable, to the point that you will not want to leave!

Many clients return and send their friends or family to stay with us because of our staff. Just as we promote the chilled and comfy atmosphere we are also very chilled, welcoming, positive and actually happy. We simply love our job, what we do and the hostel. It shows in our attitude, openness, wanting to help, and to go the extra mile so you can feel at home. Not to mention we are very knowledgeable about Tamarindo and its secrets spots to explore but about Costa Rica in general.


*** Value ***
We understand you are traveling on a budget and we price our rooms accordingly. We offer quality, comfort, cleanliness and the best location. We can assure you that in Tamarindo you will not find a better valued place for your money with so many amenities, quality, cleanliness and superb location. In our Pura Vida MINI hostel Tamarindo we have several options to choose from: Dorms with a fan, dorms with AC, female dorms, private room with a share bathroom or private bathroom and family suite.

We have many options to choose from according to your budget. Private rooms that can sleep up to 5 people, with orthopedic mattresses, clean pillows, fresh sheets. Dorm rooms come with either AC or fan, orthopedic mattresses, lockers for your personal items, shared bathrooms, fresh and clean sheets and pillows.

We are very mindful of the nature and our environment. For this reason we have recycling bins throughout the facility, we use eco friendly cleaning products, we reuse scrap materials to build, we encourage to save water and natural resources...just to mention a few… These are few of the reasons Tripadvisor gave us a “Green leader batch!” as the only hostel in Tamarindo - Costa Rica.


*** Location ***
We have one of the best location in town out of all hostels in Tamarindo. We are on a quiet side street only 20 seconds or 200 meters from the beach, 300 meters from the nearest supermarket and the center of the town with all the bars, shops and restaurants. So basically you can just roll out of your bed and be surfing or doing yoga on the beach!

When our guests are happy and comfy we are happy, for that reason it is our priority to keep our hostel super clean, neat and organized at all times. We offer a cleaning service every day, we keep the grounds clean and neat and we perform deep cleaning regularly of all the rooms and common areas.


*** Or hear what this guest had to say: ***
“This hostel really is THE BEST for meeting people. The huge lounge area and allow for easy conversation with other guests. There is a rad social area that included a pool table, foosball, or ping pong.

Its a super chilled hostel with friendly staff, safe, good vibe, in walking distance to different surf-spots and main Street. The staff were super personable, they were always willing to help you get around and find things to do.

It was clean, cool, comfortable. The bathrooms were cleaned every day, and the kitchen was constantly being cleaned up. It was perfect to chill out in the hammocks after a day surfing, and adventuring around the area. One of the best hostels I have gone to.”


*** So why you should choose us? Its that simple: ***
Super hostel with an array of amenities, the best value for your money in whole Tamarindo, great location, super cleanliness, amazing staff, best and fully equipped kitchen, free coffee in the morning, swimming pool, discounted surf board rentals and classes surf, meet amazing people from all over the world, chilled wibe, 2 strong Wi-Fi’s on the whole property, safes and lockers, multiple security cameras, free pictures from Fred the iguana...All set in a beautiful tropical garden with frequent visits from monkeys, iguanas and other native animals.

    Would highly recommend! Great social atmosphere, pool was a nice addition and staff were helpful. Not fancy, but perfect for a few nights in Tamarindo if you want to have a lively time. I lucked out and had a double bed in the dorm, which was amazing. No lockers for bags, but rooms lock up easily enough. Good location, just off the Main Street and the beach. One of my favourite hostels in Costa Rica thus far.

    Very Good

    Location was great, and made some good friends for sure, but not really our vibe. We had a private room facing the common area, where loud music was played everyday from 8am to 11 pm and was overbearing. The bathroom we shared with 4 other rooms was pretty gross, and the kitchen wasn't much better (hostelers' fault). Has lots of amenities, but they are in ruins so totally overpriced for what we got. Don't stay here if you want some peace and quite (even if you like to party).

    Somewhat noisy. Staff not particularly friendly are helpful. Good location and value for the money. I’d look for something quieter, and where the staff seemed more interested in their guests.

    Weirdly everything looks dirty but actually isn’t. It just looks pretty run down. Pool had a lot of tree rubbish in it. There was a fight outside the hostel when we were there. It was alright just felt dirty even though it wasn’t. Pretty cheap though and defo a good option because tamarindo is so expensive.

    Good location and kitchen. Not much of a vibe and staff aren’t friendly. Dorms very old, not the best security and staff aren’t very friendly. Considering the price, not worth it but there aren’t that many cheaper options.

    Staff didn’t make us feel welcome at all. Which definitely had a negative impact on my stay. Also loud music all day.

    Unfriendly & unhelpful staff. Asked a simple question about the bus & got told we’re closed now come back at 7am. Whole place needs a major deep clean & when asked to strip the bedding in the morning I’d rather not have seen my pillow without a case. They had a decent chill zone but the pool cue, triangle & foosball table were broken. Just needs someone in charge to give a s***. It’s cheap in relation to other places but actually overpriced for what you get.

    Taking into account the cheap price of the hostel this might be fair but all in all i have been in cheaper hostels with better service in comparable places. The dorms don't have ac and the door didn't properly close so that everyone could get inside, there were crabs in the room and a friend of mine saw a mouse. In the kitchen, multiple people told me that their food was stolen. The staff is nice but not very keen to help out.
