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... More

The place is nice for young people/ surfers. Good value for money. + Very close to beach. Hammocks in garden. Big kitchen and fridges. Nice and helpful staff and guests were fun too. Walking distance to town and yoga schools - Water scarcity made toilets clogged up but staff tried to fix it immediately Rather noisy as no glas windows... More

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.... More

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...

I cannot say one bad thing about this fantastic hostel. All staff was lovely and very helpful. The hostel is very close to the beach, which is one of the best beaches I have seen in Costa Rica. The rooms are spacious and clean and and the big and well equipped kitchen is an asset. Most people staying in Nosara... More

It's an inexpensive way to stay in Nosara but the accommodations feel more like jail cells than bedrooms. The first night I was in with a couple and baby. The baby of course woke up during the night and more annoyingly the couple whispered all night long. I finally asked them to stop and they did, but really a couple... More
