“A great and beautiful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

During our trip we stayed in Tamarindo for a few days. On our arrival, we had a drink in the Higher Ground Bar and we heared about the hostel in this building.
We decided to stay. This was a very good descision. The service was very good. The rooms were clean and the owners are very, very nice people!!
We can recommend this location. Next time when we come to Costa Rica, we will start and end our stay in this hostel.
We slept very well because the room was Air Conditioned!!

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple
Thank Ralph N

best value ever! the hostel just opened june 2014 so every thing is brand new and clean! 10$ for a dorm with AC with a kitchen! its on top of the supermarket so its practical. the only thing that i didnt like was the bathrooms (very small) and its not directly on the beach (5min walk!)
