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

It was more like staying at a guesthouse than in a hostel. Which to me is a good thing. There was a great room as you walk in with a beautiful long wooden dining table and an open kitchen. Everyone shares the kitchen space and there is very much a feeling of camaraderie or family as people prepare their meals... More

I had the best time at this hostel! Best place to chill and enjoy the beach. Came to this hostel because it was the cheapest I could find in Playa Guiones. But never expecting to feel so at home. The staff really makes sure you feel at home. 3 big and funny dogs try to guard the hostel. Super close... More

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
