This is a true gem for those who seek a place with good vibrations. A lot of effort is made to make the guests feel safe and surrounded by friendly faces. I loved the fact that there were just one wall in the dorm, moscito nets covered each bed. Super in this climate, where concrete wall rooms gets too hot.... More

Very big and lush garden with all kinds of dorms and private-huts, everything looks amazing and the owners are doing a great job for the environment. Beach is very nearby (everything else is quite far, but the hostel serves good food and drinks), you can rent bikes and everything is clean (a few cockroaches in our bedroom though). The owners...

The Flutterby House is the best hostel I've had the privilege of staying at! Pam and Kim have built an awesome environment for travelers and surrounded themselves with an excellent staff to support their next-level hostel. There's tons of activities and lots of great people to make your stay incredible. Also, if you get a chance, take a surf lesson... More

Cascada Verde was a weird one for us. The great reviews inspired us to visit this hostel in the middle of nowhere for some tranquility. The volunteers are really sweet but they have a click forming where they socialize together away from all the backpackers, partying the night away on their private deck. The grounds are beautiful, and are close... More

If you're looking for a place to stay in Costa Rica, this is the place! All of the staff are extremely friendly and all speak English, so there is no worry if your Spanish is a bit rusty! Although it is a bit hot, this place is the best bang for your buck!

I stayed here for three nights in one of the treehouses. I thought the design for the hostel was wonderfully unique. The room had a lovely breeze in the warm pacific climate. The location was great because it was so close to the beach that you could walk there with only your sandals and a towel. All of the lounge... More

Taking a needed break from Nebraska's weather. I stayed 8 nights . I found the atmosphere relaxed. .Everything I want to do is here like the great beach. Corcovado tour and snorkeling off Cano island., Whale and Dolphins. Great onsite Restaurant. The Best Bartenders and helpful staff! I had a great time.

I showed up with no reservation and although they were full the staff allowed me to use their internet to look for another hostel and made me a delicious smoothie with fresh fruits and veggies. I ended up staying just down the road in a cabina where the staff did not speak english and were not very helpful. I returned... More

My friends had come and stayed at Flutterby house several times and seemed to enjoy it, said the vibe was cool, so iI was pretty disappointed when it was a below average tree-house style hostel. They were pretty full that weekend so we split up, i stayed in a private room with some friends. It costs $16 per person, there... More

We read about Flutterby on Tripadvisor and initially booked a room for a night. We ended up staying three nights (we would've stayed for longer if we could) and had a really good time there. The tree houses and the cabinas are cute and basic. The atmosphere at Flutterby is very relaxed and friendly. It's very easy to get to... More
