    Great place to stay in Tamarindo that is budget friendly and super close to the beach! Staff was friendly and helpful, pool was great and the grounds were pretty. Would definitely stay there again.

    This was my favourite location on my trip - the pool gives for a great location to meet people, rooms were what you needed, bathroom worked with a hot shower ( you’d be surprised how little you end up seeing that) honestly I could have stayed at this hostel for a month, I loved it.

    This place was situated in the perfect location. It felt very safe and the room was nice and clean. The bed was too firm for my liking but others may not mind it. I’d recommend this place to anyone. The private room was $60 USD and had a safe for your belongings as well, a huge plus for me.

    Really nice stay! Its very reasonably priced for the location and what you get. Its also nice and quiet so when you wanted a break from all the excitement of Tamarindo, it was really pleasantly peaceful. That said, its not a very social place - but it was pretty easy to meet people in Tamarindo so that wasnt too much of an issue. The staff was super helpful and friendly, hammocks were comfy, and bathroom (private ensuite) was fabulous.

    We had a great stay! Perfect location in Tamarindo, literally steps away from great restaurants and two blocks from the beach. I felt very safe, as the hotel is gated and locked at all times. The security guard at night was super nice and always helped us get back in. Basic, but comfortable rooms with AC and fresh towels daily. Pool was refreshing and clean! Overall, such a great hotel for the price.

    For the money spent this was more than what I expected. Air conditioning, hammock outside room, pool, great customer service, close to main street but not to close so noise was non existent. Owner helped get my SIM card up and running and other staff helped with personal drivers to take us to Conchal. No complaints at all !

    Lovely hostel staffed by excellent people. The rooms were very basic but passable. Cleanliness a mild issue as it doesn't feel like there had been a deep clean of the room in a very very long time.

    Very Good

    Room was fairly nice and good size with AC and comfy beds. Bathroom was clean and good hot shower. Lady at reception was amazing! So so helpful. Downsides are there is sooooo many mosquitos, ants and bugs around so you can't enjoy laying outside in the hammock or using the pool. We were eaten alive. There is also no water refils which is disappointing having to buy single use plastic. Overall not great value for money as we just used the room as couldn't sit outside. No atmosphere also.

    Huge disappointment. Awful view, tiny room, cold showers. Not what we booked! Room was nothing like the photos of a Standard Double shown on the hotel's website.. Rather than having a view of the garden/pool as shown, we were in the car park looking out over cars. No hot water for three days, bathroom incredibly tired. Pool water was murky, area around the pool mainly bare soil, so sunbeds are muddy (and the hotel staff didn't clean them). It was cheap and location was good, but room horrible
