This hostel is the nicest hostel I have stayed at so far in Costa Rica. Beautiful gardens, very clean, and very friendly staff (and dogs). I would recommend this hostel and also say it's great value for money. Try the Beach Dog restaurant just down the road for food (great for breakfast, lunch and dinner!) Forgot to mention - this...

I ended up at Nosara Beach Hostel by myself as I was traveling around Costa Rica. However, I stayed for three weeks because I feel in love with an amazing new eclectic group of friends. The accommodations were your basic bunks, but the community kitchen and dining area was wonderful. We made many meals together. Dee was a wonderful hostess!... More

The owners and people who run the place are so friendly! They even gave us a small discount for staying as many nights as we did. They had laundry done for us and the place was always kept very clean. 24/7 somebody is there to watch over the place and everyone involved in taking care of the hostel are committed... More

This hostel is amazing. Andre and staff are SO friendly and the guests feel right at home. There's a great big kitchen and nice porch to nap on after the long morning surf sessions. I highly recommend this hostel. There are monkeys every morning and the beach is steps away. What more do you want?

I traveled to Nosara Beach Hostel with three girls and we had the best time there. It was so close to the beach that we just walked right out of the door and had a splendid time. There is also a beautiful garden with hammocks and foosball tables to keep us entertained and give us a peaceful place for journaling... More

I stayed for two weeks Feb.- March 2013, it was a 5 minute walk to the beach & free internet if you had you own computer. Staff was there 24 hour a day. I saw monkeys in the trees from the back porch. It was lovely. Nosara Beach is a surf town, you have to drive 1/2 to 1 hour... More

The couple that own this place live next door and take care of the property. They are very helpful and sweet. The location is a far walk to the beach, but the hostel provides bikes that you can take out which is very helpful. There is a market nearby and the community kitchen is newly renovated and everyone ate only... More

I found this hostel to be one of the best I've stayed at. The staff is local and friendly. The rooms and beds are what you'd expect in a warm climate, screened in windows and comfortable enough. If you're in Nosara you're not there to hang out in the room anyway. They have a rack for surfboards, and a full... More
