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

Such a cool place, I've never stayed in tree house like accomidations. love that there are mosquito nets, but really wish they had extra fans, I roasted. As per location its totally walkable to the beach and in a nice quiet area. Its a little bit of a walk if you are talking the tracopa bus and don't catch the... More

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
