My friend and I moved to this hostel after staying at another for the prior two evenings. We left the other because it was noisy and messy, and found this one much better. We chose a room that was 12 dollars a night, and since it was the rainy season, we had it all to ourselves. It was basic -... More

Located in the middle of the main street and good access to the beach. But for the price the rooms were very hot and the fan did not help. Shower was broken, with very little water pressure directed down. Italian owner was very helpful. Found the town overly expensive for what you get.

The hostel was very dirty. The rooms and no blinds, just scratched off white paint on the window. Everybody can see into the rooms. The bathrooms were gross and their was very little room to move around in the rooms.

We stayed here for 5 nights, couldnt have asked for a better place, atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Nice sunsets from chill area, hammocks, tv, and music. The breakfast is great here, coffee free all day, and the Pizza is delicious. After a 14 hour bus/ferry ride up from Jaco, we were enthusiastically greeted by the owner Ryan, showed to... More

We checked in here and basically checked straight out again. For the price this hostel charged it was woefully inadequate, and makes me question all the previous reviewers - have they stayed anywhere else ever? We have been travelling for over a year and stayed in hundreds of hostels and this was way overpriced for what it was. The hostel... More

We showed up with three 20 year old girls, and met Ryan and within minutes had a place to stay with air conditioning, wi-fi, and breakfast in the morning. All in the most accessible location, and all for 15$ a night. We made lots of friends and felt completely comfortable and 100% safe. I accidentally left my phone on the... More

Bahia Paraiso is a wonderful place to stay if you're visiting Tamarindo. The location of Bahia Paraiso is perfect, right in the middle of town, close to the beach and any shopping or restaurants you may want to visit. If you feel like staying in the hostel for the night there is a great balcony area where you can kick... More

Uh how do I sum this up... Probably the best place on Earth. We showed up with 5 guys from Colorado and met Ryan, the owner, met us upon arrival.
