The Beach House was the only hostel on the beach. The location and view couldn't have been any better. They provided breakfast and coffee which was awesome. What really made our stay memorable was the staff and the other people who were staying at the hostel. Very laid back, a ton of fun, and super friendly.

I stayed at the Beach House for about 2 weeks. It was class. The whole vibe of the place and the attitude of the staff was awesome. You're perfectly placed to get out surfing with a few breaks to choose from nearby. I can't comment on rooms as I was staying in a hammock but in terms of value for...

Best location in Tamarindo, especially if you surf. You walk out the back door, through the garden, and there's the surf break. Very chill atmosphere and really cool people running the place, feels more like a home than a hostel.

It´s located right at the beggining of the beach, it has everything pretty close and the atmosphere is great. Very friendly, clean, and nice. The beach is the backyard, what else do you need? If you come to surf, you can chek the tide all the time and you don´t miss a minute. If you come to party, the town...

I cannot say enough great things about this hostel. I don't even know where to start. The facilities are very clean, nice and right on the beach at the end of town. The view from the hostel is literally deserted beach. This is the kind of place that, as I stayed, compelled me to stay put and enjoy a very...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Beach House is a small hostel located just outside the center of Tamarindo. Close enough to have everything in walking distance - it takes 5 min to get to the shops, bars, restaurants, banks and anything else you need, but far enough to get a good night’s sleep with the sound of the ocean in the background. It is the perfect place if you’re here to surf. Just in front of the hostel you will find the best breaks in Tamarindo. Wake up, grab your board and get in the water. And after a long day of surfing it’s time to relax, have a cold beer and watch the sunset in our big tropical garden, where monkeys, parrots, hummingbirds and iguanas make their occasional visits. Our friendly staff is always more than happy to help you organize your surfing trips, excursions into one of the many national parks or just to show you around town. Of course we have all the good stuff like free wifi, free breakfast, private beach access, safe parking area, cable TV, big balcony on the 2nd floor, next to Baulas National Park, laundry room, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. ... more   less
