La Bruja Verde is located on a road leading out of town, so if you are looking for something close to the beach, this isn't your hostel. However, we arrived late afternoon looking for a private room, but they were all booked up (having rented out the entire main house to a troupe of travelling fire dancers) with only dorm rooms to spare. The owner offered us an entire dorm room for $30 which is pricey in the grand scheme of hostel rooms, but not so pricey for Tamarindo ($$$$). The dorm room was small (I can't even imagine stuffing 4 people into the space) but equipped with air conditioning which was a blessing since opening the windows wasn't an option with all the 'nature' flying around at night. Bunks were new construction and quite comfy. Keep in mind, that you are in the tropics: howler monkeys make their home in the trees above, and the insects are larger than life. Kitchen was clean enough, but the bathrooms could use a little TLC and a good cleaning.
