Arriving at Coral Reef we were greeted by the super friendly staff at the reception desk who gave us a tour and showed us to our amazing room. The hostel is really clean, there was always someone around to help us find our way around town and gave us info about what to try out in town. The prime location... More

We stayed for 4 nights at Coral Reef and it was fantastic! We had a surf lesson with Miguel on the 2nd day which was great and gave us confidence when we went out the next time! The beds were comfortable and the A/C in the dorm room was perfect! An added extra is the 15% off at Longboard's (the... More

The Coral Reef Hostel was the perfect place to stay at inTamarindo! It was definetly cleaner than any hostel I've seen in Central America and it's right in the central of Tamarindo so you have bars, restaurants and of course the beach right next door. Probably the best thing though were the chicken wings in the longboards restaurant just next... More

The Coral Reef hostel in the center of Tamarindo is an amazing place to stay. The whole staff is really nice and the hostel has cozy hammocks to chill. There is also a skateboard ramp and surfboards to rent. We were suprised by how clean the hostel and especially the bathrooms were. Whenever we had questions about the surf conditions... More

Went to Tamarindo basically alone and this was the way to do it. Plenty of friendly people who will help you with your trip. And if you're just passing through and only need a bed, it's cheap. So hey, can't go wrong. Plus it's located nearby good food and a couple bars. Which makes walking around at night when you... More
