This place is amazing: excellent staff, great location, and superb amenities. It is by far the best bang for your buck in Nosara. It attracts good people as a result. I stayed in a group room with a private bathroom, and a private locker. I felt secure, and very relaxed there. The hostel is spacious and very close to the...

This hostel is unlike any other that I have ever stayed in. It's more like a community than a bed to sleep in. The staff is welcoming and energetic. Ask for Dee and show her love!! Coolest Tica you will ever meet. Great rates for any budget. On one of the most amazing beaches on the planet. Great surf. Great...

I wish I could've stayed longer! The staff was very welcoming and quickly became family. A incredible blend of fun, sun, and relaxation made the Nosara Beach Hostel the perfect spot. A 2-minute stroll to the beach was just icing on the cake!

After reading positive reviews, I stayed at this place for a few days toward the beginning of my time in Nosara. The great things I can say about the hostel are: Dinia (staff member) is wonderful--friendly, open, generous with her time and advice! (Thank you!!) The location of the hostel is just steps from the beach--perfect. The cost is reasonable....

Felt at home! Safe and sound, and only steps from the beach. I used to live in Nosara and was stoked to find a place to rest my head and store my belongings while I was travelling through. Rooms have about 5 bunks, and some of the nicest people. Hammocks also surrounding the property for a chillin' afternoon. And of...

For a first time solo traveler from New Zealand this was my first time in Costa Rica. I blindly booked in to this place for a week to check out the surf and chill for a bit. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay so much I booked an extra week. It's got a great backpacker vibe and is friendly, safe and...

The staff is nothing short of amazing, the common area and kitchen are great too, and although the dorm rooms are not so spacious they're are airy and cool at night. The best thing, though, is that the place is owned and ran by Costa Ricans, something you don't see often on the Pacific coast.

If you're looking for a chill place to stay after your surfing at Playa Guiones, this is probably the best place you can find! Dinia is definitely the best host in town. Excellent service and great value!
