Nosara Beach Hostel
Ranked #9 of 25 Specialty Lodging in Nosara
Reviewed January 28, 2012

My friends and I stayed here for 1 night although I wish it would have been longer as I fell in love with Nosara. The hostel has clean, comfortable rooms, extra washrooms and showers and is close to the stunning beach. The owner, Andreas and one of his staff members, Dinia are both wonderful and went way out their way to help us with all we needed. As a guest, you have access to a large kitchen and many hammocks in their beautiful outdoor gardens. They also offer many games, tv, bike rentals, etc. It is well worth the bumpy roads to visit Nosara and to stay at a hostel with such a warm inviting environment.

If you are deciding on where to stay during your visit to Guiones, Nosara, Without a doubt this is the place you need to go to. Not only is Nosara an amazing place with a great vibe, but staying in Nosara Beach Hostel is the option to go for: great prices in you're on a budget, super confortable and friendly staff. It is spacious, super close to the beach and wonderful gardens. It is a place where you'll find yourself hanging out daily, meeting people and having fun. It is run by costa rican locals who have lived there for a long time and will guide you and suggest you to have the best experience you can imagine. Close to Guiones center, supermarkets and stores, and walking distance to main supermarkets and stores. You can either walk or rent a bike and you're set. I totally recommend it! You'll never want to leave!

This place is the perfect combination between location, ambiance and price. Playa Guiones is one of the many hidden treasure beaches in Costa Rica, Nosara Beach Hostel is walking distance from the beach and the town, yet long enough that it is quiet. The owner and staff will go out of their way to make your stay pleasant, and you will meet tons of locals that stop by to spend some time there or just say hello.
Rooms are confortable and each has their own private bathroom. For you personal Belongins you get a locker inside the roo.
Common area is great, hughe fully furnisehd kitchen, foosball table, satellite TV, and even playstation if you are a videogames fan.
Also, if you feel like not being indoors, which is not shoking since you took your time to get here, the property has a huge green area with tables.
Great place to stay in a great town, and many other beaches that you can visit during day trips, this place is fully recomended.

I just stayed at the Nosara Beach Hostel for 15 nights. I've spent many months in guiones over the years always at different places. This Hostel is in such a great location. Its just steps from the south entrance of Guiones beach meaning you can leave your slippers at home and walk the short road to get your swim, surf or beach mediation on without worry of the tide coming in to snatch them. Harbor Reef & Beach Dog are close by for good food if you want to get out of the kitchen for some time. Though I recommend hanging out and meeting other travelers.

The staff is incredibly welcoming. You feel like a gust in someones home. It actually is a home, and the owner is there hanging out often. Dee is also around often sharing her beautiful spirt and positive vibes. There is always someone there adding to the security. Ive never felt more safe in Nosara, and thats important these days.

You get everything you need (including muy bueno cafe ALL DAY) and nothing you don't need.

Bottom Line - stay here for a night, or live there for the month. Keep it low key, enjoy the area and save some money for sure.

Pura Vida!

Excellent hostel very close to the beach of playa Guiones. Friendly, helpful and accommodating staff. Dormitory rooms, with spacious personal padlocked locker for each bed space. Literally 2 minutes walk puts you in the surf, while 10 minutes will get you into town for some food and drink. Has wifi.

By far, the best place to stay in Nosara. If you're looking to be within a two minute walk to the best waves and keep it affordable, this place is perfect for you. Andres was extremely helpful in directing us to all the best spots to eat and drink ( and if you're a single man, he's a great wingman with the ladies) Clean beds and great common area with a foosball table too! Five minute walk to Harbor Reef Restaurant and 15 min walk to La Banana, the best late night bar in town. Security was awesome too, no need to worry about your belongings in this place. I would recommend it to all travelers looking for the best experience while visiting Playa Guiones.

Room Tip: They're all good.
