Cecile was lovely and the hostel room and common area were spotless! It had everything you needed - beach towels, AC, access to the kitchen and a pool. The room was small but had everything we needed, including a small fridge. Highly recommended for backpackers or even business travelers. Wifi was strong.

We really enjoyed our two-night stay. Our check-in process was easy, the hotel is clean, safe, and simple, and it's only a 15 minute walk to the beach and a 5-10 minute walk to the best restaurants and stores in town. The pool is small but perfect for dipping into to cool off. The fresh coffee ready every morning and shared kitchen were a bonus.

We had an amazing stay! The host was very nice and even let us keep our car parked and use the beach towels after we had checked out.

8/10 Very good

Nice little place that has all it needs. Room 1. Is pretty noisy due to being next to the front that’s which bangs on entry. The security light also switches on which is pretty bright. All in all a good place though.

We stayed in the private room. It was very clean and the A/C worked awesome. The walls are pretty thin so beware of excess noise from local restaurants and sports courts nearby, especially late at night. Staff was very helpful and nice, emails were always answered very quickly. If you're looking for a good place in Tamarindo, I'd recommend it!
