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

We had our first trip to CR and had a few nights at the Flutterby. What a great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Awesome food. We aren't really the hostel type so 2 nights was a great experience. Our only complaint was that we could smell the compost from our tree house. The tree house was amazing though. Thank you Flutterby for... More

I came down to Uvita after hiking Cerro Chirripo and was really looking forward to being able to relax for a few days. This was the perfect spot. A wonderfully positive and inviting environment and the most unique place I have ever stayed at over the course of ten trips in Costa Rica. I guess I don't have much to... More

We stayed in the tree house and had a blast. It was well built and was very private for a hostel. I would caution anyone that had trouble with stairs. I thought they were fine but my friend struggled. Bring the appropriate clothing as it is very humid and warm. The bar is fun and everyone is friendly. Young crowd,... More

Best stay in our time in Costa Rica! We enjoyed the great atmosphere, delicious food and really nice staff! The whole surroundings are so nice, it's just a 5 minute walk to the beach. You can order breakfast, lunch & dinner in the Flutterby which I really recommend! If you visit Uvita, stay there! We will be back!

As my two week vacation from the 9-5 grind got closer, I found myself bored with the idea of staying at a resort. I knew I wasn’t quite up for bunking in a dorm, but I also knew that I didn’t want to sit among hundreds of other people on plastic tanning chairs lined along a beach. I found Flutterby... More

I spent a night here with my fiancé on a mini road trip through Costa Rica. This is definitely one of the nicer hostels I've been to. Its the perfect low key place to stay, it has great value options, and private rooms as well which are still super affordable. I stayed in one of the private cabins and I... More
