“Awesome hostel !”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

I stayed at the hostel 3 nights and I wish I had stayed longer. I love this hostel. The staff is really friendly. Clean rooms, cheap, good location .. just few minutes walk from the beach. I would highly recommend this hostel for everyone. A big 10/10 !

Super nice and generous owner and staff. Very hospitable and kind. Beautiful town and killer location. If you're in the mood for sick surf and gorgeous sunsets, this is the place for you. The people there are hella kind and very helpful for finding whatever you should need on your trip. Very safe and close to everything you need, I was there with my wife and kids and felt very comfortable and safe. I highly recommend anyone to stay here. Thanks again Andres and staff, pura vida

I only stayed at the hostel for a week over spring break, but it felt like a home away from home. The staff were really awesome and very accommodating. Everybody staying at the hostel was really nice too. It felt like a little community. The hostel is probably a one minute walk from Playa Guiones and a 10 minute walk from town, an ideal location for anybody on a surf trip. The rooms were kept very clean and the staff did a great job maintaing the kitchen and living room. Super comfortable and friendly (plus free wifi). Definitely recommend staying at the Nosara Beach Hostel.

I had a great time at this hostel, I stayed for 2 weeks. It was $20 a night for a dorm bed, but if you're going to the language school it's only 15! The facility is really secure, with cameras around the entrance and a staff member there 24/7. D is the best!! :) They are all great, they help you practice your Spanish and are very friendly.

There are shower/bathrooms attached to each room with 2 bunkbeds and a normal bed. There are also seperate shower/bathrooms. Lots of surfboard storage, locking wood lockers in the room, hammocks outside that were AWESOME and it's like 2 minutes to the beach.
I would highly recommend!! The only thing that would be better in my book is hot water lol. The showers are all cold water.

This is truly amazing place. I never felt as safe in a hostel. You could literally leave a mobile phone on the charger in the lounge, come back to it in an hour and it'll still be there.
Rooms are basic, but cleaned daily. Massive lounge, big kitchen, big and clean cooker&oven. Fridge probably needs a bit more attention, cause it smelt a bit.
Terrace with hammocks, rocking chairs and tables are perfect place to enjoy a freshly brewed costa rican coffee. Made by the boss :)
Location is probably the best out of all the establishments..
Shame there is not more private rooms.

This was one of the cleanest, friendliest and best-located hostels I've ever stayed at. There's a giant kitchen/communal dining area that makes meeting the other guests very easy. There's lots of outdoor porch & garden space (including hammocks!) to lounge around on. Staff is super-friendly and helpful. The beach is 30 seconds away. I absolutely loved this hostel and, if I hadn't had people I had to meet in other parts of Costa Rica, I would have happily stayed a few more days. Sooooo chill.

Stayed a couple weeks in January, and felt incredibly welcomed and comfortable. Owner is accessible for any issues, hostel is moments away from a world-class surf beach, rooms are spacious and clean, and prices were more than reasonable considering other local hostels' rates. Check it out!
