$12 for a dorm with bathroom and AC is pretty good going in Tamarindo espcially when the beds/bedding are of a decent quality like the ones in La Botella. The place has got a good vibe due to the cow theme and its kept very clean. There are spaces to socialise and the kitchen is well equipped too. The location... More

While it is out of the way from the main road, the hostel was worth the walk. Quaint, clean, and well kept. The owner was a very nice woman who let us check in early. Free coffee, wifi, and AC. The owner's son teaches surf lessons, but you can find them for much cheaper on the beach. Also, the owner's... More

I was excited when my friend said to meet him at La Botella De Leche due to my love of cows, and the place was no disappointment. The staff were lovely & helpful, and due to low season & staying a while we got a few dollars off a dorm room. It was clean and tidy, with a refreshing shower... More

Place definitely showed potential for a good stay however I think I got screwed. I assume they put a lot less effort into slow season. Arrived late the other night looking for a cheap bed and beer. It was reasonably priced however the bed had no sheet and I had to walk 100mts up the road to another hostel to... More

The staff were very friendly here, although one night the guy had all his mates around and took over the common area, but they were not loud and left at a reasonable time. Good a/c at night, decent sized kitchen, may be lacking in a few pots though, they do board rental and there is a resident dog. We would... More

Soo...this review is quite overdue, but I still do remember well staying here for a few nights during a long stay in Costa Rica...what a great hostel! Very welcoming to an international crowd, and friendly service...you don't feel like they are trying to get paid but more taking care of you...and as two young ladies travelling alone have learned, this...

My dad and brother have been traveling to Tamarindo for surf trips, for several years now. They have always ranted and raved about staying at La Botella de Leche. This past May, I finally got to experience it for myself. The place is great. A short walk from the beach and town, but far enough down the street to be... More

I very much liked this hostel. It almost felt like a little hotel as me and my friend had a private room. The bed was super comfortable, with a private bathroom and a little terrace with balcony and table. The pool is also very nice and it's located close to town and the beach. I would have given at 5...

I loved this place, the staff was really nice. It's quite small and all the rooms were built around the pool, which created a great atmosphere. One of the few cheaper places with AC. Rooms were kept clean.

Great hostel with AC that you can use between the hours of 7pm to 10AM and there is even a small swimming pool. The only problem I had (since I'm allergic to cigarette smoke) is everyone there was smoking (in the pool, out of the pool, in their rooms, outside of their rooms). Nice kitchen/dining area and a couple of... More
