The guide book describes this as a hacienda and it is exactly this. Go surfing in the morning and then chill in the afternoon to tunes and beers by the pool in the sun: perfecto.
OK, so there's a little walk to get here but we're talking 10 minutes here so it's nothing any of us haven't don't before. But your reward is a safe, friendly and well above average hostel.
If you need another reason to choose here then the staff are the real gems. They will look after you and help you with anything you want - beer; surf instruction, doctor, fishing, restaurant recommendations - they could not have been more friendly or accommodating.
I'll be coming back here when I hit Tamarindo again.

Its a super friendly and fun atmosphere. We are the Lonely Planet Guide recommended hostel in Tamarindo for several years running! Here's what Lonely Planet has to say about us: "Our favorite hostel in Tamarindo, this intimate, all-star backpacker spot, in a gorgeous yellow hacienda is big enough to make new friends . . . small enough to feel more like home. The common kitchen area has a large, full-stocked shared Kitchen, cable TV and FREE coffee. Dorm and private rooms are clean and comfy. Outside, you will find lovely tropical gardens, small pool and hammocks, all surrounded by woods where you'll hear howler monkeys every morning".- By Lonely Planet 2011.
