I was at the hostel for a great week and a half. I met tons of fun people, the surf was just a few minutes away, and there is a big deck with lots of hammocks. The hostel staff were great, and everything was clean and safe. I definitely plan to go back.

I blindly booked this place after coming down to Nosara from noisy Tamarindo and instantly fell in love with the tranquility of this place. The hostel is just steps away from Guiones beach, so you may rent a surfboard for the length of your stay and go catch waves first thing in the morning without hustle and bustle of lineups... More

The hostel is only a few steps away from the beach and the waves making surfing very convinient. The atmosphere is super relaxing with plenty of hammoks around the large garden. Super friendly staff, as soon as we walked in Dee welcomed us with hugs and good vibes and through our stay everyone was super friendly. Really nice large kitchen... More

This place is amazing: excellent staff, great location, and superb amenities. It is by far the best bang for your buck in Nosara. It attracts good people as a result. I stayed in a group room with a private bathroom, and a private locker. I felt secure, and very relaxed there. The hostel is spacious and very close to the... More

I wish I could've stayed longer! The staff was very welcoming and quickly became family. A incredible blend of fun, sun, and relaxation made the Nosara Beach Hostel the perfect spot. A 2-minute stroll to the beach was just icing on the cake!

After reading positive reviews, I stayed at this place for a few days toward the beginning of my time in Nosara. The great things I can say about the hostel are: Dinia (staff member) is wonderful--friendly, open, generous with her time and advice! (Thank you!!) The location of the hostel is just steps from the beach--perfect. The cost is reasonable.... More
