Flutterby house does a wonderful job of creating a sense of community. The treehouses, cabins, kitchen, bathroom, bar, and hang out areas are comfortable, whimsical and welcoming. This is a clean, organizied, and friendly hostel with a laid back feel. Great prices on food and drinks. Very convenient to the Ballena National Park and beaches. The owners have done an... More

We went twice, once just for drinks and once for a group drink and dinner. Both times we had a great time. Great well priced drinks very well served in a fun atmosphere. Dinner was a set meal of meat or veggie and we sat at a shared table. We had a really great evening with our group, highly recommended.

Went to Uvita for 1 night, stayed at Flutterby by word of mouth. I was so impressed and loved the energy I stayed another 3 nights. Food was great and I loved the different jungle juice for happy hour everyday. Stayed in an open dorm treehouse room. Loved it! All the beds have nets. Made lovely friends and went hiking... More

We inititally booked two nights with Flutterby, but upon having slept there for the two nights, decided to stay for the remaining 1,5 weeks of our 3-week trip. Awesome place, close to both beach and forest, good beds, great (spacious & clean!) kitchen, good food, nice bar; and the fact of sleeping in a treehouse alone, of course, is a... More

I felt at home at the Flutterby. The hostel workers and guests were friendly and genuine. The place felt secure and comfortable. Someone is always on watch and they keep the gate closed at night. There are lockers for rent and also bikes and surfboards. Not only is there a communal kitchen but there is a chef's kitchen open for... More

Overall a good experience. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, and the bar was lively. A great place to relax and meet people traveling costa rica. There are activities through each day of the week, surf boards to rent, food to eat (suprisingly good), and alcohol to drink. The back has many hammocks which are a delight to... More

We went for 2 nights as a couple. We had our own little cabin which was nice and quite private. Clean and comfy bed plus little balcony with hammock. Fun vibrant vibe. Great decor & v organised. Downside is everyone sharing bathrooms and it felt a little crammed with people.

Flutterby House is a lovely and well-run place. It is located in Uvita. You must understand that Uvita is not a town. It is a collection of heighborhoods/hamlets spread over a large area. The bus I arrived on stopped on the highway, and I had to walk a long, long, long, long way, with my luggage, to find Flutterby House.... More

Excellent place for young people to stay, just go take a look and you'll see. Bar, restaurant, kitchen, ping pong, and other stuff. The location is just next to national park Uvita, a highlight of my trip to Costa Rica. I highly recommend this place to stay
