Best option in Nosara
Such a unique hostel! Beautiful property and staff were amazing. More of a party atmosphere than others but with how large the property is, it’s easy to find space to relax if that’s your vibe

Katya, ca8 night trip with friends
Very good 8,0
Place was beautiful, and comfortable. The only problem is that the co-working place was not as they sell it, the place was really small and close with not much ventilation from the outdoor; if someone was on meeting the All room was loud. (Not much recommended to co-work for the price of $12 per day)

The shower head was broken. I was placed in a room where you could hear all the traffic from the main room. Walls were thin and people loud. It was once a nice property, but it’s pretty rundown now.

I liked the staff, very friendly even remembered my name. I had problems with my key card several times and I did not like the loud traffic right outside my window at 5:30 am.
George, us2 night trip
Fair 4,0
Disappointing and noisy
Stayed for 5 days. Staff were nice, nice having a kitchen, spacious room and decor. Customer service lacking - 3 front desk guys spent most of the morning/afternoon chatting, at night some were cooking and partying with guests. Check in took 15 mins, poor directions to rooms, no pool towels, dirty dishes and cups left for hours in pool area, cobwebs in the room, 1 set of towels for 2 guests which had dust and cobwebs on them. Next to a busy very noisy road, so if you're noise sensitive, it'll be a struggle.
