Blue Trailz is a fantastic hostel. The staff is super friendly. Before my stay here I asked if they could help me set up my transport from monteverde and back to san jose and they handled all of it for me and added it to my bill. I took 3 private surf lessons here to help with my form and... More

First off, it was such a relief to have a place that had AC. None of the other hostels I stayed at in Costa Rica had it. The owner was awesome. Correspondence before I go there was great. I stayed two days more than I was planning and it wasn't a problem. Awesome location. Met a lot of great people... More

I only stayed here for 2 nights. But before I even gotten there, the staff I corresponded with were super helpful. They even told me about other parts of CR in which I was staying. I felt like I could ask them anything. I was initially reluctant to go there to Tamarindo hearing it was quite "touristy" which it was.... More

Stayed only one night in a private room however the owner helped me my entire stay in Tamarino. First in finding another place for the following night, then I could still use their Wifi for internet calls with a very good connection. Then he offered me to store my luggage while I was surfing and the third hotel, where stayed... More

We stayed at Blue Trailz for 4 nights.. After travelling around costa rica we ended up wanting to come back because we loved it so much. Koen (owner of the hostel) and all staff were fantastic!
