Stayed at La Botella de Leche for three nights as a group of three. PROS - Room - Good size. Beds comfortable. Clean. Only had one light though so bit difficult to see at times. Had bag shelves. Rooms has AC which worked well. - Wifi - Worked well - Security - Doors locked. They had CCTV throughout the property including on the car park outside. - Car parking available on the street. - Pool was clean - Location - within walking distance to everything. The beach. Bars. Restaurants. There was a supermercado not too far away. - Staff were friendly CONS - Hot Water - There was no hot water in the room which was surprising given the price point. The shower also went from no pressure to a blast in the face. - Busy/crowded - This place is popular and has entries in travel books like lonely planet. Thus its full most of the time. The problem with this is the common spaces. The 2 fridges were packed to the gills to the point where you couldn’t keep more than one days food. The kitchen was often full of dirty dishes and pans (although the staff did their best to clean this). There wasn’t a lot of spaces to eat. Despite this the entire second floor has been converted into a yoga studio which might have been better used as a common space. - Renovations - while we were there they were undergoing renovations. This meant that someone was scraping paint off our window while we were inside the room. Overall a reasonable option. I wouldn’t exactly call it a budget option but the price point reflects Tamarindo, which seems to be a bit more expensive overall than other places

We were supposed to stay 1 day, we spent 4 more there because we felt in love with this place. La botella de Leche is the best hostel of Tamarindo, we appreciated so much its atmosphere. There is everything to feel good : a swimming pool, sport area, big open kitchen, surf lessons,… The owner and its team are so kind and welcoming, always there to help or just to tchat about everything. Being a backpacker for the first time, we came in Costa Rica to connect with people and create memories, and this is clearly what happened in La Botella de Leche.

I spend a week at Botella de Leche as a solo traveler and it was completely beyond my expectations! The atmosphere was amazing and everyone was so welcoming and inviting! Especially the staff and managers Leo and Beelu who were such lovely people! I would definitely recommend Botella de Leche to everyone!!

The price per night was fine based on this being a hostel. However, couple of things can be improved. Please have hand and body soap in the bathroom. At least, if you do not want to include that, please say so in the description of the place to be aware before arrival. Second, I think it is great that you take care of the security in the place, but it is the first time that I stay in a hostel where there is no cleaning at all during the stay. Other than that, I would say this hostel is fine if you're staying for a few days with friends because of the price.

The first 3 stars that we receive in a long time! We offer soap but maybe the guy who made your check in forgot to give it to you. The maids offer to clean the room not everyday, as you said we are a hoStel, not a Hotel. Hope to find you well and give us another chance in the future :) Leo

We spent 6 nights at la botella de leche having originally booked 3 nights but prolonging the stay because of how much we loved it! Perfect hostel for socialising as it has lots of communal spaces and is not too big so easy to get to know everyone. A great community vibe among guests but also staff and we all went for dinners, beach, surfing and nights out! Marcus and the team of surf instructors were great, I had never surfed before, but had such a fun time. All staff were friendly and professional, and Leo the manager made us feel relaxed and welcome. He was happy for us to extend our stays each night and ensured we made the most out of our time in Tamarindo! My favourite hostel I’ve stayed in, would highly recommend!

This hostel is by far the best in Tamarindo. The staff is absolutely incredible. If you ever get to book there, you have to take surf lessons with Marcos and the other surf instructors. Very cool guys ! It is such a great place to meet new people and party as well. Nice vibe and nice pool to enjoy ! Thank you for having me, I will surely be back !

I stayed 20 days at la botella de leche and felt really safe. The hostel is very centrally located and is very good value for money. Everything was clean and the staff was really friendly and helpfully. I would stay there every time again. It‘s also nice that they have a swimmingpool. - Selina Bäumler
