    Staff was great, location is close to the beach and everything else, check in was quick and easy, room was basic but we didn't need more. AC worked well. We'll definitely stay there again if we're back in Tamarindo

    Everything was great and everything went smoothly. Staff was accommodating and offered dinner service. Only con is the dustiness that's caused by it being on a main road but location is good!

    The front desk staff were very personable and friendly. They were very helpful answering any questions that I had. This hostel is in a great location, within easy walking distance to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The pool was very nice to cool off any time of the day into the evening. I would definitely return to this place .

    Good location central to town and a great pool and common area. Helpful staff and a great price! Only issue was that our room was not soundproof at all. The hostel was not terribly noisy, all guests were respectful and the nighttime noise curfew respected, but we could hear everything going on. Would recommend if you need a cheap place with lots of amenities but maybe not great for early sleepers.

    Highly recommended La Botella de Leche

    Very good experience. We had the chance to be in the newer area (2nd floor). Very secure. Nico borough. Very friendly and helpful personnel. We were a couple. We had a private room and bathroom with AC. Highly recommended.

    Servicio deficiente

    El lugar está bien, la alberca/piscina está limpia y en general el área compartida si es como se muestra en las fotografías. La habitación es cómoda y limpia, no muy espaciosa pero suficiente. El AC funcionaba perfecto y la ducha todo OK. El personal en general es amable, sin embargo tuvimos un incidente con el auto alquilado, y la manera en que manejaron la situación no fue la ideal, terminamos siendo nosotros “unos mentirosos” porque en sus vídeos de seguridad no se veía que hubiese pasado durante nuestra estadía en el Hostal. Al día siguiente, que era cuando nos íbamos del hostal, el encargado en turno se mostró un poco más empático, con una mejor actitud de servicio y hospitalidad, nos dio una cortesía para desayuno en un lugar a dos puertas, resarciendo un poco el mal rato pasado la noche previa. Pongo 3 estrellas porque aunque el lugar estuvo bien, la actitud del personal fue pésima por parte de unos de ellos, y muy buena por parte de otros.
