We did not have the best start to our trip in Tamarindo so we were very pleasantly surprised when we found this place. From the moment we entered we felt very welcome, everyone here was all smiles - staff & guests. When we met the owners it was easy to see why, they are very attentive & hospitable. The pool... More

It is a hostel 10min walking from the beach, with pool, free Milk and coffee run by a really helping owner... It is a familiy concept hostel, so the party is outside. We found it very cheap and it has private bath and A/C. Definitively the best option in town

We weren't keen on Tamarindo but this place was a great find. Slightly outside of the main strip but well within walking distance, we rented a spacious room with a/c and shower en suite for $35. The room had lots of light, something unusual in Costa Rica where most cabinas in this price range were very dark and often with... More

A/C, coffee ready, swimming pool, and a nite place for ~$20 / night. I doubt you'll find a Hostel place like this. Also good opportunity to meet people from around the world. Attended by the owner btw.

We loved this hostel! We stayed in a dorm, it was really spacious with air con and a private bathroom. The hostel is beautifully decorated, and feels very homely. Brilliant kitchen to use and a lovely pool! Cheaper than all the other dorms we asked at in town and the owner was lovely! We didn't want to leave!

I'm almost certain that the sheets were not fresh as I found 1) sand 2) a small bead 3) hair when I pulled back the covers. Very creepy. Ended up sleeping on top of the top sheet which was not a problem as the room was VERY hot. Only one window opens so no cross ventilation and the air conditioner... More

I stayed at la botella twice and got to try out the dorm as well as a private room. Both were amazing! The cleaning staff did an awesome job daily and the bathroom in each room is just the greatest thing to have in a hostel! The rest of the people working there were great, too. The Argentinian guy mostly... More
