The owner, Filipe was SO friendly and accommodating. You could tell he was very well liked in the community and genuinely wanted his guests to enjoy their stay. Honestly, so far he's been our warmest welcome in all of Costa Rica. We thought the concrete tubes were so neat, they turn into glorious little ice boxes with the the A/C which was a welcome repreive from the heat but perhaps not everyone would appreciate the tight quarters. The communal kitchen and outdoor living space was perfect for us, kitchen was well stocked. The bathrooms were clean and had a modern flare. The only downside we noticed were that the beds were not very comfortable, the thin mattresses were sagged in the middle on top of wood slats. This place is a hidden gem quite a ways from the main road so I'drecommend having a car to get here as it also isn't very close to amenities.

During our 30 days trip we stayed two nights at the Pipe House and never experienced something alike. In other words: the ultimative highlight of our trip.
What to expect:
50m to the beach (surf spot inc.) Mangotrees, Monkeys, very few tourists, AC in every pipe and an awesome host named Felipe.
Thanks to Felipe we were able to experience the feeling of Pura Vida!
Keep up the good work!

Simply the best vacation I've had thus far! This place was the ying and yang of vacations. perfect for adventure and sublime yfor relaxing. Very welcoming host who truly took the time to show us what playa grande had to offer. Costa Rica is a rich coast indeed! Will be coming back!
I was stranded in Playa Grande after the boat taxi's stopped running to Tamarindo. I stumbled upon this hostel and they were the NICEST people ever. The hostel looks so amazing. I could not get over how cool it was, how nice they were, how accommodating they were. Go to this hostel immediately, they are the best. Cannot wait to go back.
If you are looking for a good priced, comfortable, cool place, YOU HAVE FOUND IT !!
The rooms keep fresh due to the tube design.
THIS PLACE ROCKS!!
No doubt it is one of a kind !!
