Interaction with Guests
I am new owner Anne. I'm young, fun (I hope!) and work at the hostel every day. I love to meet and interact with our guests. I'll take you to the best surf spots and the best happy hours! We can also recommend the best value tours and surf lessons in town.
Tamarindo is amazing! We are only 5 minutes walk from the beach, which is great for surfing, swimming and getting a tan. We're also only 3 minutes walk to the supermarket. Tamarindo is also a fun party spot, and we're close enough to walk to the bars and clubs in under 10 minutes, but we're back from the main road so you'll sleep like a baby!
You can walk everywhere in Tamarindo, but we can rent you one of our bikes if you'd like to go further afield. We also know the best and cheapest taxi drivers :)
Other Things to Note
This is what Lonely Planet says about us: “Our favorite hostel in Tamarindo, this intimate, all-star backpacker spot, in a gorgeous yellow hacienda is big enough to make new friends . . . small enough to feel more like home. 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.
Anne was there for us all the way. This was the first time we have used Airbnb for a trip and Anne was a big chunk of what makes it work. Thank Anne:) Kind helpful and thoughtful.
I had very warm welcome. The staff on duty helped me to carry my luggage to the room that was very clean and spacious. The atmosphere in the hostel was permeated with the spirit of camaraderie. Good music as well as sporadic Latino dancing in evenings created festive mood. I am definitely planning to return to that wonderful place. Airbnb has to change the name of that hostel in its data base from The BEST hostel in Tamarindo to its real name Tamarindo backpackers - The BEST hostel in Tamarindo. Otherwise the taxi drivers do not know where to drive.
