    About Us:

    Located in a former Hacienda in Tamarindo, we are a traveler's hostel promoting a fun, relaxed vibe with a social atmosphere. We get many backpackers, but also a wide variety of ages, nationalities, solo, group and family travelers. We operate a surf school out of the hostel for beginner-to-intermediate surfers with daily group and private lessons. We also offer custom surf trips along Guanacaste’s coastline.

    We are located less than a five-minute walk from the beach and town center, with two mixed dorms, one staff dorm and five private guest rooms (all air-conditioned). We are known for having a relaxed, chill vibe at hostel but mostly for our amazing and outgoing staff.

    We routinely host hostel BBQs for volunteers and guests to get to know each other. We are looking for sociable, fun-loving volunteers with a curiosity in those they meet on the road and learning from one another’s experiences.

    Please do not be offended if you do not get a response! We do our best!
