A quirky and great value for money spot close to the beach. Great breakfast menu at $5 as well as a well equipped kitchen. Plenty of activities to do with equipment available for hire. Good spot to walk to the whale tail at low tide. Customer service could have been better, particularly when queues were forming at reception but other... More

I traveled 2 months in Nicaragua and this place is awesome! ! Very nice and friendly sisters running a top notch, clean and pretty hostel in the jungle, minutes from the beach. One of the best hostels I've visited hands down. Thanks flutterby!!

Loved this place....could have stayed forever. So fun being around young and old....so much spirit, good info, story sharing and great food. So comfortable and what a fun bar to hand out in the eves. Just a very short walk to the beautiful Pacific and the whales tail....would definitely stay here again....loved the treehouse.

Flutterby hostel is a unique hostel complex that is really close to the beach and has good access to beautiful Marino Ballena national park. We stayed in a clean and comfortable rustic cabin and enjoyed chilling out and chatting to other travellers in the communal area and kitchen. The location is quite far away from local amenities. We had to... More

The women running this place are great. The food is yummy and not too pricey. We loved staying in the Penthouse. It was stifling hot when we were there, but the fan and open windows and private hammock made it tolerable. Sorry that the smoking area was close to our tree house. Beautiful mosaics in the bathrooms!

We were at Flutterby House in December and the food was amazing. The staff very helpful. We were a family of 4, and stayed in Tom's cabin. The cabin was ok. We found that the 3rd bed was not really a bed but a couch that we were to convert to a bed. The cabin lacked siting space to relax... More

Sleeping in a tree house is a dream come true and this makes place is basically the ultimate tree house spot! If you visit Costa Rica you must... More

Ok let's get right to it: the dinner is phenomenal! Reasonably priced, and freshly made by two amazing cooks. You don't order from a menu...they announce what is for dinner (always with a vegetarian option) and you either order that or the "anytime" snacks which are all delicious: ceviche with chips, hummus and chips, sandwiches (omg the falafel! Try it!)... More
