This is one of the best, if not THE best hostel I have stayed in. The owners (Carole and Marc) are friendly, and helpful. Specifically, I was impressed by the overall cleanliness and aesthetics of this hostel. The other guests were also great because I think this hostel attracts a more mature and respectful crowd. I stayed here for almost... More

I stayed at 4 you for 3 months and I will say it was the best experience I've ever had at a hostel. Carole and Marco are the most gracious and caring hostel owners I have ever met. They take care of all your needs and are so friendly. They truly care about their guests and have equipped the hostel... More

Carole and her partner were great. The cost here's very low considering the close proximity to the beach and public bus, restaurants etc. The facility is clean and efficient. I stayed in A semiprivate room in the dorm. Its noisy like most of Costa Rica so bring earplugs. Otherwise the shared kitchen and bath were clean and convient. A seasonal... More

My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer. Such a laid back atmosphere that fits perfectly with the area it is in, quiet, calm and relaxing. the most beautiful beach is just down the road, there are tons of food options around and Marco and Carole have thought of everything to run one of the best hostels in Costa...

4You hostel formed a big and special part of mine and my girlfriend's 6 week stay in Nosara. Firstly it's certainly the cleanest and most beautifully designed hostel I have ever stayed in. During our time we stayed in two of the four private bungalows, and one of the smaller dorm rooms, each of which was perfect. It has a... More

I've been travelling for almost 9 months with my boyfriend through the Americas, and this is by far our favourite place to stay and the best hostel we've ever seen! Marc and Carole, the Swiss couple who own the hostel, live on the property, so they're always around to make sure everything's clean and that everyone's happy. I can't say... More
