The common kitchen area has a large, full-stocked shared Kitchen, TV, computers and FREE coffee all day. Dorm and private rooms are clean and comfy. Outside, you will find lovely tropical gardens, small pool and hammocks, all surrounded by woods where you’ll hear howler monkeys every morning”.- The author’s choice from ALL hostels in Tamarindo.

I am 33 years old, expecting my first baby in January 2016. I was a corporate lawyer in London and decided I wanted to enjoy life more. So I sold everything, quit my job and moved to paradise to buy Tamarindo Backpackers hostel and I have never been happier! Life by the beach is awesome and I love meeting and getting to know my guests from all over the world.
