I have stayed there several times, and I have no complaints. Everyone is really friendly, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. It is also close to Tamarindo downtown and Langosta Beach. My friends liked it as well and as a matter of fact, it is our favorite hostel in Tamarindo. 100% recommended

Great atmosphere, clean rooms. The most comfortable I've been staying in dorms. Great location as well! I suggest an early morning swim in the pool and walk to the beach. If you come out early in the morning you can see monkeys on your way to the beach. The only negative comment I have is that the gentleman at the... More

I stayed in a dorm for 3 nights. The beds have actual blankets rather than just a thin sheet which is nice! The hostel itself was pretty clean and the kitchen was well equipped. (It even had a microwave, which I haven't seen at too many other hostels in CR). The price is fair for being in Tamarindo and having... More

I stayed at La Botella de Leche a couple times this summer and had a really great experience both times!

This is a nice hostel just outside the hub of Tamarindo. The atmosphere is pretty laid back, with backpackers and travellers coming in and out. We stayed with our two young boys, who loved the pool and the board games... Although we were certainly the only family around. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. I would recommend it for... More

Honestly the place wasn't bad. Beautiful pool and awesome common area. There was a tv but usually had kids shows playing as there were tons of little kids. The demographic seemed mostly for families.
