When my buddy and i got to Tamarindo we asked around which hostel we should check into. The first answer we got was Tamarindo backpackers. As soon as we got to this place, we were greeted by amazing staff and friendly travelers. Within days we were well in our comfort zone, having close friendly relationships with all the staff members and other guests. I have not needed anything during my stay but any want/need/question a guest might have is immediately seen to by smiling faces. The vibe here is like no other, walk 5 minutes to the beach, or lounge around all day listening to music of your choice in the comfy hammocks or by the pool. I couldn't ask for better service and when i did experience some personal issues, the staff members took me as one of their own and made sure they did everything they could to help me out. Anne (the owner) and Chris are some of the most genuine people i have ever met. If you're lucky you will meet Daniel, a cool Venezuelan dude who works at the hostel and brings nothing but smiles to everyone. Not to mention his cooking, if you buy the ingredients he will make you a meal unlike any other food you've tasted. I haven't seen a single insect in the sleeping quarters, and the place is cleaned top to bottom daily by friendly cleaning ladies. Everything is within a short walk and you can expect to see monkeys playing in the trees above every morning. Weather you're staying for a night or a month, you can't beat this place. We will be returning for sure. Pura Vida!
