“Great friendly place ”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

Amazing place to stay in tamarindo! Close to the beach and everything you could want! Staff are welcoming and so friendly. The manager is very resourceful and will help you with anything you may need during your stay, from good places to eat to setting up shuttle services. Thanks for experience!

cleanest hostel I've ever been in! They clean your room/dorm every. single. day. The ladies there make your bed, clean your washroom/shower, communal area and the kitchen. I originally planned to stay in Tamarindo only for 3 nights but ended up staying extra 2 more nights because of this place. Plus, Chris and Armando really make you feel like you are at home. Super down to earth and always up for helping you out! Chris even walked out to the bus stop early in the morning to make sure I got on the right bus to my next destination. These two will definitely take care you.

Very nice and clean hostel in the center of Tamagringo! Friendly owner and staff, great facilities with AC so you can get a good rest if you're there to either party, surf or day tours. The hostel is quite big and has a few place where you can hangout or just read a book!

Recommend it all the way for travelers on a budget who dont want to die from the heat of the Pacific Coast!

Tamarindo Hostel was my favorite hostel I stayed in during my 8 weeks of traveling CR. It was clean, friendly, welcoming, safe, affordable, and had a great environment for travelers to hang out and socialize. Not to mention, free wifi and hot water!! Plus a great bar and kitchen for anyone to use. We ended up staying two nights here instead of one because we loved it so much! The front desk and owner were extremely helpful in offering to organize tours and excursions for my group. The hostel was in a perfect location. It was close enough to downtown, restaurants, and everything to easily walk to, yet it was far enough from the nightlife to actually be quiet at night. Beautiful property! We loved this place and definitely plan to go back!!!

Room Tip: Dorm room had a private bathroom and shower which was awesome. Private rooms looked very nice!

Beautiful and clean place hidden in the center of town so your close to all the action while still living in privacy to allow for full relaxation. The staff was so friendly and makes you feel like family. Very chill and upscale hostel for a very cheap price. Don't pass up on these guys!

I stayed here for 3 nights in July, then traveled north to Nicaragua and Honduras and returned back to the Tamarindo Resort for 3 nights at the end of my month long journey ( I was flying home out of Costa Rica, from Liberia Airport.) Both times I stayed in Tamarindo Hostel Resort and had the best experience ever. Christian, the owner was so sweet and helpful - there for anything I needed. The dorms were clean, comfortable, safe and AC equipped. After traveling through Central America for a month and staying at manyyy hostels (including the sister hostels in Monteverde and Arenal) this was by far the best. The staff were so friendly and accommodating - I actually feel as though I made close friends with some! Traveling by yourself is a unique and courageous endeavor - this hostel helped me make friends and feel comfortable the entire time.
Nestled in the heart of the small town of Tamarindo, this hostel is close to everything - the beach, a great food court just across the street and has the most amazing empanada bakery right at it's entrance. I felt safe at all times with the nightly security guard and the warm, friendly international friends I made. There are no lockers but the entire atmosphere is very trusting and safe - I didn't get one thing stolen (including food from the community fridge.) If you're ever in Tamarindo, this hostel is the place to stay.
