Property condition

4/5 Good

Very good value for money. Centrally located near great variety of restaurants & quick access to the beach. Hosts were very helpful and knowledgeable.

Stayed 3 nights in Feb 2019

5/5 Excellent

Surf & Cook

Came to surf and save a little money by cooking. The room was spacious, had good wifi, a balcony, warm water in the shower (not always the case in Tamarindo), and the hostel staff couldn't have been more pleasant. They'd help me when something wasn't working in the room (i.e. the oven needed to be unplugged and re-plugged in), showed me where to get local buses to get to neighboring towns, and were very knowledgeable about the board I should rent and use. It was also nice to have the kitchen inside the room I was staying in.

Stayed 1 night in Nov 2018

4/5 Good

Ideal location

Ideal location, clean and friendly

Stayed 3 nights in Aug 2018


There were cheaper nicer places.

The room was large with small kitchenette. No housekeeping for my three day stay. Not pleasant. Down the street from the beach where young men were selling weed and other young men.

Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2017


Lock up your valuables

The location was amazing, the hostel was in the back of a surf camp. The staff was friendly. This was a great value for the price, and I could not be more pleased. What I am not happy about is having my jewelry and a pair of sunglasses taken out of my room. If you stay here, which I recommend, just lock up anything valuable.
