Dear friend, We are sorry you didn’t like our hostel, some times people mistake hostels with hotels and come here with the wrong idea, thinking that for $50 they can get AC and all luxury’s bathroom with hot tab, as they get in big hotel firms they are use to visit. Nosara is one of the most expensive areas in... More

I have been coming to Nosara since 2006, working as a surf instructor for a few weeks each year. I always make sure to stay at least a few nights upon my arrival at Nosara Beach Hostel. It is family owned and operated. Andre and his sister (and their friendly chocolate labradors) are always nice and make you feel welcome... More

Nosara Beach Hostel is one of the nicest places Ive ever been. For me its really important to stay near at the beach, that i can check-up the surf everytime. The hostel is perfectly located for that, just a 3min walk to Playa Guilones! When you stay there, you feel like to be in a big family. Many young open... More

The owners were wonderful. The grounds were well kept. The cost was affordable. The other occupants were fun-loving, beach-going, kids (20-30 yrs old). Excellent location. I tried surfing for the first time at 50-years old. It was a kick. There are great mountain bike rides around the Guiones area too. I went in November and stayed for Christmas. The location... More

Nosara Beach hostel is a warm and inviting place. The staff is very welcoming and makes you feel completely at home. The hostel is literally seconds from the beach and has an amazing array of hammocks in which to nap. It is a great place for surfers and backpackers alike. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to meet great... More
