We booked a private room with bathroom. It was clean and the first two nights we had warm water. The last night the water was cold. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The taxi they book for you is more expensive than when you'll arrange it by yourself. But if you arrive after dark, it's nice to have someone... More

We had booked 2 dorm beds in advance online. We turned up with 2 other people and they had overbooked, so we waited 30 minutes for them to get another room ready. This room turned out to be 4 mattresses on a floor in a room. The mattresses were very close together with no space in between. We had to... More

Hostal is o.k., acceptably clean, located in a very quiet and probably safe area - but still in walking distance to the city center, very helpful staff (arranges Taxis to the airport or wherever, give information about the city, good restaurants, etc.), free Internet, very popular with backpackers and good to meet other travellers stayed there just one night

>I been here for less than 12 hours and both taxis arranged by the hostel have charged me more than quoted. From airport was quoted at 15 and I was charged 25. Then a 20L cab this morning was changed en route to be 60L. It´s not the extra dollar, its the principle. Especially coming from a taxi set up... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night while we were enroute to La Ceiba. We had a private room ensuite with AC. The bathroom wasn't very clean and the drain in the shower needed to be plunged; it continued to fill as I showered until I was standing ankle deep in water- yuck! The AC barely worked, we... More

My friend and I stayed here as a "layover" on our way to La Ceiba. You definitely get what you pay for. The $11 price for a nights stay is quite attractive but of course you sacrifice quality. The girl downstairs when you come in did not seem very happy to be there and barely said a word to us... More

My stay at the Tamarindo, in itself, was a pleasant experience. The eight-person dorm room was clean, neat, relatively quiet, and very reasonably priced (at roughly $11 per night) for a solo traveler. Although the building is not near anything special in the city, the hostel is secure and the staff is friendly. There is a decent market nearby. Unfortunately,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tamarindo Hostel, the first backpacker's place in San Pedro Sula. We have dorm rooms, private rooms, hammocks, and enough area where you can have a nice rest after an adventure in San Pedro Sula or places near the city. We have a nice garden, terrace, free use of kitchen, reading area, and a lot more. We can inform you of tours and places to go and have fun at very cheap prices. We are close to Souvenir shops, discos, cinemas, shopping mall, restaurants, markets and supermarkets, Hedman Alas Bus station is near, hospitals and drug stores, so come over and find a good and secure area to stay at with a few bucks. We have wifi free but the use of the computers is for a very low price of $1.00 the half hour. ... more   less
