  • Great hostel! Perfect location. Far enough from town that you can sleep if you want but a close walk when you feel like partying. Great staff and great atmosphere :) I would definitely return here and I was sad to leave!

  • staff was friendly and helpful... there is no night guard or staff however but there are locked gates. good location, 17 dollars for a hostel in central america is a bit much but its the going rate in town.. i would stay there again if i had to return to tamarindo.
