Nothing to complain about! Great people, great country, great guests. You are near downtown and also near the beach. It's perfect to go on a trip with friends or with your couple! Don't miss it. Always clean and you have an awesome pool to chill before going to the beach. 5 stars. Always recommended!

My stay was wonderful! Super affordable, the staff which I guess is the owner and the guard at night were incredibly sweet and treated me like a daughter. I bought my own groceries and cooked everyday, so it made my experience even cheaper. Which is always nice. My co hostel people were really nice, very friendly, I love meeting people... More

I will first state the positives - the lady on the phone was kind (perhaps the owner?) and the guard at night was super cool. That's about it. The other guests apparently could not read Spanish OR English. The place was vile because of how little respect the guests had. Garbage all over the floor...filthy kitchen. Noisy until the wee...

It s not bad, it s not excellent, it is very average. Location nothing but okay, nice pool, restaurants nearby, but I found the hostel quite noisy (depends on people, of course). For the price it is okay, but i really believe that the bathroom could be cleaner.

I loved this hostel, it is just a short walk to the center of Tamarindo, but far enough away that you are not bothered by a lot of noise. They have a nice pool, and large kitchen for cooking. The location is right near a supermarket, so cooking your own food is easy, a must for me when I'm trying... More

A very nice and cozy hostel just outside the busiest area at Tamarindo. The rooms are tidy and spacy. A lot of backpackers, so good oppertunities to meet new people. During low season there was no problem with overbooking. During high season, I've heart its very popular - book in advance. Thumbs up for a small and clean pool.

$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
