Property Description

From sleepy fishing village to booming beach town, Tamarindo has become one of Costa Rica’s most popular destinations. Even as specialty cafés, chic boutiques, and global fusion restaurants fill its streets, it has managed to maintain its relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Just 30 miles from the Liberia international airport, it offers easy access to beautiful beaches and unique tropical ecosystems.

Selina Tamarindo continues our tradition of sustainable properties that blend naturally with their environment. We seek to build community here, and daily activities like morning yoga, salsa lessons, and surfing classes do just that. Our common areas, like the swimming pool, kitchen, and playground with live music and DJ sets on the weekends are perfect for socializing and making friends. Make sure you try the delicious concoctions of our restaurant & bar.

From ocean activities to tours of the jungle, Tamarindo has no shortage of things to do. Learn how to surf, go horseback riding on the beach, or put on a snorkel and mask to head below the water’s surface. You can also go sports fishing and even take a canoe tour through the waters of the Tamarindo Wildlife Refuge. The town, filled with travelers, expats, and locals, has tons of options for eating, drinking, and shopping; no matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll certainly experience “pura vida” in Tamarindo.

    Selina Tamarindo was easily one of the nicest hostels we have stayed in! The rooms were huge, the facilities were excellent and the breakfast was the best! They have a great pool and bar Area with a good atmosphere, it is quite easy just to stay at the hostel and not even venture further!

    We had so much fun at Selina Tamarindo. The atmosphere was really cool and we were able to rent good quality boards for 10$ a day compared to 15-20$ everywhere else. The staff was super friendly and our room was clean. Not much to complain about.

    Best place to stay/surf/ hangout in Tamarindo! Staff here are AMAZING! Daniella went the extra mile to plan excursions. Javi is the nicest and so helpful for surfing lessons. Juan Pablo personally helped me book a flight and set up a taxi for me. Jon is super chill filming the surf lessons and selling his t shirts! Beautiful hostel with perfect location to the each and downtown (wild panda for food and sharkys for drinks). Dorm houses are spacious but get sandy/dirty quick. Will come back!!

    Pool is really nice. Enjoyed the outdoor common areas, lots of space for everyone to sit around in the sun or shade. Every time I stay at a Selina I always think that the vibe is really strange, but at least you know what you’re going to get in terms of facilities.

    Was a cool place to meet people and chill. Wouldn't recommend renting a board from here, better to get one cheaper from the beach and you won't have to carry it to the beach and back. Kitchen was good, had the basics. Great location, I would stay again.

    We stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm and no1 cleaned our bathroom or empty our bin next to the toilet till the 4th day when we had to go ask for it and for them to clean the mound around the taps which I could clean off with a finger. I didn’t understand why they didn’t clean it sooner it had been there for months by the look of it. The bathrooms are the worse things about Selina’s. Please fix them or clean them.

    The water was muddy and never on so all 8 of us couldn't shower, the drinking games on Saturday at 9pm never happened and the music was dull there was no vibe to the hostel. Liked the design and location though and the people at reception did try to help

    I wouldn't recommend staying here. The shower would flood, meaning the whole bathroom was dirty, and the toilet stank of p**s. The main light in the room didn't work. They gave us a key to the shared bathroom due to the shower, this had an ants nest in, hadn't been cleaned, no hot water. The staff were friendly and helpful, but didn't solve any issues. Beds were comfy. The hostel seemed to big too manage.
