    Had a great time staying here- staff was accommodating and created a great relaxed social atmosphere. Fantastic value for money, especially considering our room had air conditioning, and we were able to buy food in the grocery store downstairs and cook to save money. Only complaint is that the bathroom faucets didn't work very well, and the showers didn't all lock/didn't really have places to put clothes into or change. Otherwise, great stay and value.

    Everything was nice, the building was cool, and had everything you need. Overall the cleaning was a bit neglected but of course its a hostel with tons of people coming in and out. I really enjoyed my stay here and would recommend to anyone who wants to stay a night or two as we did.

    A great little place with super friendly staff and owners! The location is good being close to the main strip but a couple blocks away which is nice when looking for some quiet. The common areas are great for reading and just hanging out. Great A/C in our room which made sleeping at night a lot easier. Our private room and bathroom was decent sized and with lockers for valuables. Water gets shut off or runs out in Tamarindo so time your shower carefully and flush responsibly! ;)

    Keep in mind this place was the cheapest we could find -codes to get in so it’s pretty safe but no safe in the room (we stayed in a private) - no windows in any of the rooms, felt like a closet - mold ALL over the bathroom and room - shower barely worked -Simons pissed on our bed and never cleaned it up, we had to get new sheets in the middle of the stay because our clothes smelled. Kitchen was useable but lots of ants - few blocks from the beach - construction going on outside so very loud

    The Hostel is okay overall, just too many cockroaches in the kitchen & the rooms. I know it's hard to fight them but you saw them on the dishes, sink, in your room. Just a bit too much. Staff is great.

    One of my least favourite hostels I have ever stayed in. Felt gross and dirty in the room, sink was quite dirty, avoided using it entirely. Power went off in the middle of the night and no staff are at reception until late in the morning so it was very dark and the a/c turned off. The staff at the reception was not very helpful and told us that we could book a shuttle with him later in the evening. When we came back they were not able to call through to the service.

    I rented 2 beds in a 6 beds room for only 1 night on this Hostel. My first impression wasn't good. The place looked bad and dirty. Check in was good but later at night when I came back I found that, they gave one of my beds to someone else and I had to sleep on only 1 bed with my friend. Air conditioner was not good enough and reception was closed after 10pm so, no one around to complain. In the morning I had problems on having them paying me back 1 bed I never used. They made me wait hours.
