This hostel had the perfect combination of a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Also, there's a pool. It's walking distance from anywhere in Tamarindo and has two fantastic hammocks. I would absolutely recommend staying here.

Had a great- and vastly extended stay at Tamarindo backpackers. The staff are super friendly and inclusive- which as a solo traveller was greatly appreciated. The hostel strikes a good balance with a lively atmosphere in the evenings that doesn't interfere with your shut eye if you are tired after a day's surfing or beach time. Fun times, thanks guys!

Big thanks to all the staff at backpackers for the amazing hospitality! The place is clean and comfortable and all the people were super nice! I had an unforgettable 7 day stay in Tamarindo and will definitely be back in the future :)

I stayed at the Tamarindo Backpackers for 1 week with my boyfriend and our best friend in the 10 person dorm. I thought 10 people in 1 room would be crowded and potentially hectic but it was the complete opposite. Everyone was quiet and respectful, not to mention that they were all great people inside and out. Hostels are great for meeting people from all around the world who have similar interests to you. This hostel is very well kept and the staff is AMAZING. We gained so much knowledge and insight from our late night chats with Lucas. Everyone here is so open and friendly, you immediately feel like you're a part of their big happy family. Shout out to Alex, Camille and Pratt for being equally as awesome! Thanks again guys! We'll definitely be back :) xxx

Room tip: All the rooms are great, even in the 10 person dorm you don't feel privacy invasion. Really depends on what you're looking for. :)
