Stayed two night camping at the hostel and spent another day just hanging out there with friends. Great space, really fun environment (not party, but fun), feel like Peter Pan land, treehouses and lots of wood around. Felt very safe, big lockers for luggage, great food & smoothies. While staying there we felt a part of the hostel... everyone is... More

The owners of this place have done an amazing job to create something very unique that caters to many travellers. There is an artistic element to its' creation. It has an engaging environment and atmosphere. I saw families there with small children as well as individuals from various age groups who seemed to be content staying here. It is very... More

If ever I imagined what neverland would feel like in the real world, Flutterby has got to be close. It's personality and charm are all products of the owners. They might be the picasso of our time. In a world with Resorts and hustle, they bring you back to the bare necessities of what we need and the magic that... More

We loved Fluttery House so much we extended our stay in Uvita. After camping and eating raw for a week we were thrilled with their amazing kitchen space- top of the line gas grill. Made some yummy meals, but the food from the restaurant looked so incredible ! Great bar area, large outdoor picnic tables and a lot of good... More

As a mature couple, we had a private cabin well away from the bar, kitchen, and communal areas. The communal kitchen is well equipped, the dinner (Friday Fish Fry) we bought was good - tasty and plenty of it. Although the place was full because of the Envision festival with people coming and going at all hours, our part of... More

There is nothing I can find wrong with this place!! Stayed in the howler house dorm, comfy bunk beds and a great opened view of the place. If you like your privacy stay in one of the individual tree houses. Restaurant food was great, good kitchen for cooking and the best backpacker atmosphere. It feels like a whole little community...

This is not a criticism, just disappointment with much of Costa Rica tourism industry, which seems to be geared for travelers who do not want any foreign culture in their foreign travels. Flutterby is a lovely place, but the only person who spoke Spanish was the cleaning lady. If you want local culture, check out Hostel Bamboo down the road.... More

We spent a few days here while visiting the marine national park and wished we could have stayed much longer. The location is a few minutes from the beautiful beach (you have to pay a small fee to enter). We stayed in one of the tree-houses and loved it! The toilets and showers are shared but kept nice and clean.... More

First off, Uvita is a tiny town that is spread out. You either stay within a few minutes of the beach or you are a taxi ride away. We wanted to stay at the beach. Flutterby is less than 10 minutes by foot on a decent dirt road. The whole Flutterby "concept" is great. Some reviews have made it sound... More
