Tamarindo Backpackers

Tamarindo Backpackers is a beautiful boutique hostel in a gorgeous yellow hacienda. It is next to a national park so you can see and hear howler monkeys in the trees while you relax in our Jacuzzi pool. We are Lonely Planet's top choice for a hostel in Tamarindo.

Aside from the beautiful pool, we have lots of hammocks and sun chairs, a kitchen for guests to use and a big lounge room where you can meet guests from all over the world. We also have a night security guard so the hostel is very safe.

We have surfboards to rent and our own private surf instructor Elias, who offers lessons for much less than the shops. He can also arrange trips for you to surf other beaches, even Witch's Rock and Ollie's Point! Our friendly bilingual reception staff can recommend and help you book any other activities you would like to do here in Tamarindo.

Tamarindo Backpackers is located in the heart of Tamarindo. We are just a 3 minute walk to one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica. In Tamarindo town you can find tons of restaurants and loads of fun bars for whatever kind of party you are looking for.

The hostel has 2 mixed air conditioned dorms, one with 8 beds and one with 10 beds. Each dorm has air conditioning, a private bathroom with shower and large single beds with real spring mattresses. The dorms are cleaned daily.

We have 2 private rooms, each with shared bathroom. The double private room has a queen bed, air conditioning and cable TV. Our deluxe room has a queen bed, 2 single beds, A/C and cable TV. Both rooms have high ceilings and freshly painted walls with custom artwork.
