After spending 11 days at the hostel I can honestly say I love every staff member i met and the location couldn't be better! Waves everyday and great people to spend time with when your not in the water. It was said leaving, and I can't wait to return!

I love this place! I booked it for a few nights on a whim, and ended up staying for 2 1/2 weeks, and returning two more times during my trip to Central America. The staff are welcoming and fun, and the people that seem to end up there are all incredible - great atmosphere. The location is perfect - crawling...

I cannot praise the hostel enough. I stayed in one of the private rooms with my young family for many weeks and could not have wished for anything more. I didn't want to leave. So close to the beach, and with its own beautiful garden. The staff are very friendly and helpful and I always felt very safe and looked...

We stayed at Nosara Beach Hostel for a little over a week and it was excellent. The staff was really helpful, friendly, and easy going. It felt like home to be there. Everyone hung out together, laughed and enjoyed each other's company, and made dinners at night. The owner took us all out to dinner and a night on the...

I just stayed here for four nights. It's a great spot to hang out when you're not surfing. There's a big kitchen, which you'll want to use once you realize how expensive the restaurants are in town. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are clean. Oh, and there are three awesome caramel-colored dogs.

I was at the hostel for a great week and a half. I met tons of fun people, the surf was just a few minutes away, and there is a big deck with lots of hammocks. The hostel staff were great, and everything was clean and safe. I definitely plan to go back.

I blindly booked this place after coming down to Nosara from noisy Tamarindo and instantly fell in love with the tranquility of this place. The hostel is just steps away from Guiones beach, so you may rent a surfboard for the length of your stay and go catch waves first thing in the morning without hustle and bustle of lineups...

The hostel is only a few steps away from the beach and the waves making surfing very convinient. The atmosphere is super relaxing with plenty of hammoks around the large garden. Super friendly staff, as soon as we walked in Dee welcomed us with hugs and good vibes and through our stay everyone was super friendly. Really nice large kitchen...

It is just the place you want to stay. Near the beach, the most friendly peoplo and the best vibes. I stayed there for a week looking for good surfing and a relaxing and chill enviroment. I did found it in the Beach Hostel. It is only you with the nature. Only you with the animal singing, the sea sounds....

This was my first time staying in a hostel and I must say it was the best experience yet! It's literally in walking distance to the beach, shops/markets and bars. Nosora Beach Hostel's staff was amazing..D is the sweetest host! The rooms, kitchen and common area remained cleaned at all times.... no complaints! Love the back yard, cool and relaxing...
