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

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

This place is like a surf secret spot: not to be shared by too many, so it won't lose of its authenticity. Owned and ruled by locals, this is the unique place to experience genuine Tica Pura Vida! Don't miss it, and beware, 'cause as soon as you've tasted it, it's hard to prevent yourself from getting addicted! We've spent... More

I stayed here for two weeks and had an amazing experience. As for the basics, it's clean & comfortable enough, the location is great, especially for surfing (just a super short walk to the beach), there's an outdoor shower for rinsing off afterward, wifi, kitchen, large common area, the grounds are lush, there's a wrap around porch with hammocks, tables...

Very relaxed atmosphere with amazing staff and great people staying. Perfectly located with a 30 second walk to the beach and surf shops a short walk away. If you... More

You'll feel at home here. You'll feel like family here. You'll never want to leave, so make sure you are prepared to ditch all your other plans and stay at the nosara beach hostel for 2 months like I did.
