The author’s choice from all the hostels in Tamarindo. Hidden down a quiet cul-de-sac in a wooded, residential neighborhood, you will find our favorite hostel in Tamarindo. Part of the Costa Rica Hostel Network, this intimate, all-star backpacker spot in a gorgeous yellow hacienda is big enough to make new friends, but small enough to feel more like a home. The common area has a large full-stocked shared Kitchen , TV , computers and free coffee all day. Dorm and private rooms are clean and comfy, with plenty of storage place ( the private rooms upstairs is the nicest for couples). Outside you will find lovely tropical gardens , a small pool and hammocks, all surrounded by woods where you’ll hear howler monkeys every morning.
