I stayed with a group of friends in on of the private rooms, accommodation was nice and really good value with two doubles, bunk bed, kitchen and bathroom. My only comment would be the safe is not actually attached to anything so in theory someone could just pick it up and walk off with all your goodies! Not that the place was at all insecure.
Hostel is in prime location for the beach and walking to each end of town.
We had the surf package which included 7 lessons (these worked out to be quite expensive overall compared to the cheap accommodation and board rental) with Shaggy who was a really cool chilled out instructor. He took us to some quieter spots so we could hone a skills by ourselves!
Highlight has to be the friendly staff and guests, we met a really good bunch of people in my two weeks even if most of them only stayed a couple of days, and it was sweet to hangout and go partying with everyone.
If I come back to tamarindo I'll definitely pick blue trailz again.
