I had a really great stay here. It's right by the beach, the kitchen was very clean and organized and my bed was comfortable. The woman running the place named "D" is like a cool older sister. She goes out of her way to help guests and keeps the place clean, safe and organized, while still maintaining a warm hearted...

Such a lovely hostel to relax and be a beach bum at. The owner Dee is so lovely, and helpful. The hostel is a 2 minute walk from hostel, and 15 minute walk into 'town'. So hiring a bike is ideal for Nosara ($10 for 24hrs at the hostel) . The surf shop is next door where you can hire...

We have stayed at Nosara Beach Hostel several times. The staff is super friendly, always there to help. The kitchen has been recently renewed, so there is a lot of space for everyone. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, there are many activities for the kids and the beach is just a few minutes away walking. When the tide is...

Very close to the beach. Next to a surf shop. 10 minute walk from businesses. Far from the downtown area, but a cab cost eight colones so it's no too bad. Very big kitchen to store and cook food. We stayed the private room, which was a good choice.

I needed to take a trip alone, and I 100% recommend not only Nosara as the perfect spot in Costa Rica to relax and connect but also stay at this hostel! Dee is amazing and everyone at the hostel becomes family. 1 minute away from the beach, multiple smoothie and juice bars, surfing, and yoga classes $10-$15, and seeing monkeys...

The place is nice for young people/ surfers. Good value for money. + Very close to beach. Hammocks in garden. Big kitchen and fridges. Nice and helpful staff and guests were fun too. Walking distance to town and yoga schools - Water scarcity made toilets clogged up but staff tried to fix it immediately Rather noisy as no glas windows...

Stayed here with a buddy. Our week long trip was just dedicated to surfing. The location to the beach is hard to beat. A short walk to the southern part of town and restaurants. Would stay here again for sure.
