Stayed here with a buddy. Our week long trip was just dedicated to surfing. The location to the beach is hard to beat. A short walk to the southern part of town and restaurants. Would stay here again for sure.

My friends and I had an amazing time at the hostel. Great waves, 3 minute walk to the beach. Surf school and board rental is next door. Make sure you bring cash (dollars or colones), food, drinks, guitars, and sunscreen and you are guaranteed to have a good time. I wouldn't recommend it for families or people who have problems...

I choose to stay here due to being adjacent to Agua Tibia Surf School, and proximity to beach. Very peaceful, and calming place to relax on porch or hammock in yard after a days surf. Simple clean hostel. One of the managers, Di, was super friendly to me and everyone else I saw there. One minute walk to surf break.... More

Even though Nosara is an expensive place to stay, i stayed here for a week cause its just beautiful and chill and this hotel is super nice. With good dorm, bathrooms and common areas, this hostel makes you feel like at home. Specially when Di welcomes you... There're other missing manners though Also, I think nosara is the best place...

I cannot say one bad thing about this fantastic hostel. All staff was lovely and very helpful. The hostel is very close to the beach, which is one of the best beaches I have seen in Costa Rica. The rooms are spacious and clean and and the big and well equipped kitchen is an asset. Most people staying in Nosara... More

It's an inexpensive way to stay in Nosara but the accommodations feel more like jail cells than bedrooms. The first night I was in with a couple and baby. The baby of course woke up during the night and more annoyingly the couple whispered all night long. I finally asked them to stop and they did, but really a couple... More

I stayed at the Hostel for roughly 3 weeks. I arrived without a reservation and was promptly greeted and guided to my bunk. The hostel is amazing, it is clean and located on a large piece of property just minutes from Playa Guiones. The staff is wonderful, D, the head manager is great. She is gracious, kind, and incredibly helpful.... More

This hostel is home to some of the coolest people in Guiones. Right next to the beach, tons of hammocks to occupy, a big kitchen, open space and super fun managers. D is the best and will go out of her way to make sure you have everything you need. I stayed here over a month during my time in... More
