Flutterby House is just about the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The dorms, kitchen, and bathrooms were impeccably clean and well-equipped. What make this place special are all the extras--sofas, library, games, ping pong, slackline, bike rentals, in-house bar with well-priced drinks, and best of all, towels are free to borrow! The hostel is less than five minutes walking from the beach, perfectly situated for exploring the Whale Tail sandbar. The staff was also exceptional--super knowledgable, helpful and friendly. Mike and Holly treated us like family, and everyone genuinely cared that we had a great stay. I recommend this place to everyone looking for a safe and comfortable place to stay in Uvita.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Flutterby House, Hostel by the Sea is a hostel located 18km south of Dominical, Costa Rica at the edge of Marino Ballena National Park. Treehouses, cabins and dorm rooms are spread over our property giving it the feel of The Swiss Family Robinson Movie meets The Ewok Village. We are 5 minutes walking from the beach and are sustainable and eco-friendly. The Flutterby House is so named because we believe people need and appreciate a home away from home. Long-term travelers and short-term vacationers alike come here and feel safe and comfortable and are able to rejuvenate while also exploring all our beautiful slice of the planet has to offer. Hammocks suspended between mango trees, indoor and outdoor lounge spaces, a well-stocked and open kitchen, bouldering wall, and slack line are all available on site. As well as edible gardens, surfboard rentals and lessons, bicycle rentals and our new Flutterbar!! Hope to see you soon! ... more less
