We have stayed at Nosara Beach Hostel several times. The staff is super friendly, always there to help. The kitchen has been recently renewed, so there is a lot of space for everyone. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, there are many activities for the kids and the beach is just a few minutes away walking. When the tide is...

Very close to the beach. Next to a surf shop. 10 minute walk from businesses. Far from the downtown area, but a cab cost eight colones so it's no too bad. Very big kitchen to store and cook food. We stayed the private room, which was a good choice.

I needed to take a trip alone, and I 100% recommend not only Nosara as the perfect spot in Costa Rica to relax and connect but also stay at this hostel! Dee is amazing and everyone at the hostel becomes family. 1 minute away from the beach, multiple smoothie and juice bars, surfing, and yoga classes $10-$15, and seeing monkeys...

Stayed here with a buddy. Our week long trip was just dedicated to surfing. The location to the beach is hard to beat. A short walk to the southern part of town and restaurants. Would stay here again for sure.

My friends and I had an amazing time at the hostel. Great waves, 3 minute walk to the beach. Surf school and board rental is next door. Make sure you bring cash (dollars or colones), food, drinks, guitars, and sunscreen and you are guaranteed to have a good time. I wouldn't recommend it for families or people who have problems...

I choose to stay here due to being adjacent to Agua Tibia Surf School, and proximity to beach. Very peaceful, and calming place to relax on porch or hammock in yard after a days surf. Simple clean hostel. One of the managers, Di, was super friendly to me and everyone else I saw there. One minute walk to surf break....

Even though Nosara is an expensive place to stay, i stayed here for a week cause its just beautiful and chill and this hotel is super nice. With good dorm, bathrooms and common areas, this hostel makes you feel like at home. Specially when Di welcomes you... There're other missing manners though Also, I think nosara is the best place...
