The flutterby is a dream come true . Everything about this place is spiced with love and creativity. The treehouses and lofty styled dorms are clean and comfy and I think everyone would be able to find some comfort here. The food at the flutterby was also not to disappoint! A creative mix of home like favourites and costa rican... More

Wood rooms, many different areas for yoga sessions and chilling, a good bar, and helpful staff. We waited over 40 minutes to get our meal by ordering dinner (10$) and breakfast (8$). Quite expensive compared to other places we visited before. A good option if you are staying for a long time and cooking by yourself in the kitchen. Not... More

Awesome place to stay and hang out. Close to the beach, surf boards, amazing staff, clean and cool facilities, good prices for the accommodation, variety of food for dinner (veggie or not). Excellent spot for backpackers. 100 % pura vida !!

I really cannot say enough good things about this place. It is beautifully planned, well thought out and well built. The entire property is covered in trees and vegetation, most of which is edible. There are paths that wind through to all the cabins and tree level dorms. We stayed in a cabin called the Magic Box, and it lived... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Flutterby House for 3 nights and everything about this hostel exceeded our expectations. First off, it's located in the perfect location - almost on the beach and far enough from town to get away from any (annual event) noises, but close enough to walk there easily. The public bus stop was only 10... More

Flutterby House is a nice 'hippie-esk' oasis next to a beautiful beach and the owners have certainly succeeded in creating a unique hostel which let's you choose between different types of accommodation (e.g. cabins or tree houses). We loved the experience of spending two nights in a tree house and we also enjoyed the overall relaxed and friendly atmosphere. However,... More

We had planned to leave earlier but stayed - just because we loved this place sooo much. It is the perfect place to stay with the beach nearby with great surf and snorkelling. You can buy really good food for both breakfast and dinner for a neat price, enjoy good drinks, nice hang-out spots and meet really nice people. Don't... More

The flutterby house really has it all: super friendly team of staff and volunteers, close to the beach, relaxing lounge spots to have their organic diners and meet other people while also offering very cute private cabins which are very quiet. We intended to flutter by for one night, stayed three. A perfect blend of hardcore backpackers, surfers, flaspackers, couples... More

We made friends with some people that were staying at Flutterby and after seeing it we immediately made plans to stay there the next night. Our cabin was perfect and the two dinners they offered while we were there (Falafel and Cobb salad) were absolutely amazing. It is so close to the beach and everyone is so friendly and helpful....
