Great atmosphere, clean rooms. The most comfortable I've been staying in dorms. Great location as well! I suggest an early morning swim in the pool and walk to the beach. If you come out early in the morning you can see monkeys on your way to the beach. The only negative comment I have is that the gentleman at the...

I stayed in a dorm for 3 nights. The beds have actual blankets rather than just a thin sheet which is nice! The hostel itself was pretty clean and the kitchen was well equipped. (It even had a microwave, which I haven't seen at too many other hostels in CR). The price is fair for being in Tamarindo and having...

I stayed at La Botella de Leche a couple times this summer and had a really great experience both times! I stayed in a dorm room as well as a private one and each were ideal hostel options (the private room was pretty adorable too). The pool was fantastic, and I agree with what others have said about the hostel...

This is a nice hostel just outside the hub of Tamarindo. The atmosphere is pretty laid back, with backpackers and travellers coming in and out. We stayed with our two young boys, who loved the pool and the board games... Although we were certainly the only family around. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. I would recommend it for...

Honestly the place wasn't bad. Beautiful pool and awesome common area. There was a tv but usually had kids shows playing as there were tons of little kids. The demographic seemed mostly for families. The staff was really helpful and informative, big kitchen and nice bedding. The dorms are crowded and there's nowhere to put your bag so it has...

When traveling in Costa Rica in the summer of 2015, there was a transit strike that affected my ability to get around, being a bus guy. Bus schedules from San Jose to outlying areas of the country were unpredictable at best, certainly unreliable. I waited in San Ramon for almost 4 hours for a bus to Tamarindo that never came....
