We stayed in this hostel for a few nights and really enjoyed it a lot. Hostel is surounded by trees and flowers, which makes you feel close to the nature. Staff, who are the Ticos, are very friendly and make you feel at home.

I stayed at Nosara Beach Hostel my first night in Nosara and had a great time. It's pretty clean, affordable, a stones throw from the beach, the staff are friendly and helpful and it seems to attract some pretty cool people. The only downside was that it's pretty far away from any of the shops so you need a bike... More

Definitely, I stayed much longer (3 weeks) than what I've planned (2 nights). This place is full of love, respect and energy. I've stayed in a lot of differents hostels from all over central america and there's no doubt that Nosara Beach Hostel is a special one. In my heart. I left with the strong feeling that I would come... More

I absolutely loved my stay at Nosara Beach Hostel. Like many of the other reviewers on here, I had only planned to stay a couple nights, but ended up being there much longer! The hostel is right next to the beach, and not too far from restaurants and shops. But what makes this place so great is the incredible staff.... More

After spending 11 days at the hostel I can honestly say I love every staff member i met and the location couldn't be better! Waves everyday and great people to spend time with when your not in the water. It was said leaving, and I can't wait to return!

I love this place! I booked it for a few nights on a whim, and ended up staying for 2 1/2 weeks, and returning two more times during my trip to Central America. The staff are welcoming and fun, and the people that seem to end up there are all incredible - great atmosphere. The location is perfect - crawling... More

I cannot praise the hostel enough. I stayed in one of the private rooms with my young family for many weeks and could not have wished for anything more. I didn't want to leave. So close to the beach, and with its own beautiful garden. The staff are very friendly and helpful and I always felt very safe and looked... More

We stayed at Nosara Beach Hostel for a little over a week and it was excellent. The staff was really helpful, friendly, and easy going. It felt like home to be there. Everyone hung out together, laughed and enjoyed each other's company, and made dinners at night. The owner took us all out to dinner and a night on the... More

I just stayed here for four nights. It's a great spot to hang out when you're not surfing. There's a big kitchen, which you'll want to use once you realize how expensive the restaurants are in town. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are clean. Oh, and there are three awesome caramel-colored dogs.
