“I didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was one of the cleanest, friendliest and best-located hostels I've ever stayed at. There's a giant kitchen/communal dining area that makes meeting the other guests very easy. There's lots of outdoor porch & garden space (including hammocks!) to lounge around on. Staff is super-friendly and helpful. The beach is 30 seconds away. I absolutely loved this hostel and, if I hadn't had people I had to meet in other parts of Costa Rica, I would have happily stayed a few more days. Sooooo chill.

Stayed a couple weeks in January, and felt incredibly welcomed and comfortable. Owner is accessible for any issues, hostel is moments away from a world-class surf beach, rooms are spacious and clean, and prices were more than reasonable considering other local hostels' rates. Check it out!

A terrific location, great rates, nice big kitchen, communal hang out area, and killer outdoor hangout.

The staff is Sooo kind and willing to help, the owner is often around and also very kind.
If tour looming for a party hostel this isn't the spot, if tour looking for a chill environment to surf and live out if this is the spot!

Ps good surf board storage

Im from NYC and wanted to go on vacay alone to get out of the winter weather on a budget. This hostel was perfect for me because of the price and how close is it to the beach- literally 2 minutes, the other hostels and hotels are farther. It was easy to rent a board and just as easy to take classes at the Nosara Yoga Institute. The rooms and kitchen are clean and theres hammocks for you to chill out on at night. It was truly a perfect vacation if you are traveling alone and want convenience for surfing and yoga =) I will be going back again!

Room Tip: Choose the back room away from the kitchen and living areas.

I really recommend this hostel, it has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The staff make you feel like one of the family and are really helpful. The rooms are nice and clean and it is less than a minute to the most amazing surf beach. Chilled out and relaxed in the evenings. Really enjoyed my stay there.

As a traveler I value a good matress and pillow, and a good shower. And as a mosquito freak, I value mosquito nets on the windows. If this is there, I am happy. If you add a 2 minute walk to probably the most friendly surf beach I ever visited, helpful people, a nice kitchen, and spontaneous staff bbqs, then I found something neat to paradise. Thanks Nosara Beach Hostel for an unforgettable experience, and I´ll definitely be back one day.

Room Tip: If you are by foot, try negotiating a bike on the price of your room. You will enjoy a lot more all...
