This was our favorite hostel we stayed at in Costa Rica! The accommodations are perfect for budget travellers, definitely worth the price. The hostel is clean, steps from the beach, has comfortable beds, a kitchen for all to use, an old van they turned into a bar right on the beach, hammocks, volleyball net, tv, xbox, etc. The people that run the hostel are awesome (Jed, Esther, etc) and will take care of any of your needs! They will book shuttles, tours, and give you any information you need to have an excellent stay in Tamarindo. It's a great hostel to meet new people and it attracts a wide variety of travellers! They also offer free coffee in the morning. I'm especially grateful to Jed as the shuttle we organized to take me to the aiport to fly home never showed up. He called the company, talked to a manager, and demanded they either pay for a private taxi to take me and one other person to the airport or they send their own van immediately. Thanks to him, I made it to the airport with 10 minutes left before boarding started! I would definitely recommend this place!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Beach House is a small hostel located just outside the center of Tamarindo. Close enough to have everything in walking distance - it takes 5 min to get to the shops, bars, restaurants, banks and anything else you need, but far enough to get a good night’s sleep with the sound of the ocean in the background. It is the perfect place if you’re here to surf. Just in front of the hostel you will find the best breaks in Tamarindo. Wake up, grab your board and get in the water. And after a long day of surfing it’s time to relax, have a cold beer and watch the sunset in our big tropical garden, where monkeys, parrots, hummingbirds and iguanas make their occasional visits. Our friendly staff is always more than happy to help you organize your surfing trips, excursions into one of the many national parks or just to show you around town. Of course we have all the good stuff like free wifi, free breakfast, private beach access, safe parking area, cable TV, big balcony on the 2nd floor, next to Baulas National Park, laundry room, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. ... more less
