I love the look and feel of this place. It is surrounded by jungle, with lots of beautiful mosaic tiling and artwork. They give a nice little tour when you arrive, and are doing their best to be good to the environment. They have a great restaurant, bar, and a good communal kitchen. I have stayed here twice, each time... More

This establishment is totally great if you’re backpacking or just want to spend some time with awesome people and eat good food. The kitchen is well organized (i.e. little cubicles for you to put your food in, etc). I’ve made many friends at this place because it attracts very likeminded people, and there are many places to just hang out.

Stayed in Tom's Cabin for 3 nights and then moved to Magic Box for 1 night. The cabin is a great experience, as long as you don't mind ants. The bathroom opens out into the surrounding jungle and the upstairs bedroom is amazing. The magic box was a nice cheap alternative and we really liked the outside porch area. The... More

Pros: location, concept, food,staff, tom's cabin, travelling on advice. We stayed an extra night so that says it all. Cons: you could be anywhere in the world, no Spanish spoken, few tico staff, felt more like California. If you want to stay somewhere Costa Rican run by Costa Ricans then go elsewhere.

Me And my friend spent two night there and it was such a good choice. As soon as you enter the place you feel very welcome and curious to explore that little jungle. They take you around the place to show you how it is and make you feel 'home'. There is a nice social area where to chill and... More

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
