Sunset Hostel Tamarindo




The Review

Sunset Hostel Tamarindo is located in the heart of Tamarindo, Costa Rica, a famous place for spring break where tons of American and Canadian young people gather.

The Location

It is located less than five minutes' walk from both the bus station of the buses coming from Liberia and San Jose. It is very easy to be spotted, as it is on the second and third floor of a building and has a huge sign in the balcony. The area in Tamarindo is safe and it is possible to walk around at nighttime. The beach is also very near, only a few blocks away, and the clubs are right next to the hostel. There is also a supermarket at the ground floor of the building, so it’s convenient to buy food and drinks.

Rooms and Bathrooms

It offers private and dorm rooms. For dorms there are bunk beds of mostly six beds. Each bed has a plug for electricity and the mattresses are larger than a common single bed, making your sleep more comfortable. The room is also spacious and lockers are available, but you need your own padlock. Bathrooms are shared with the rest of the hostel and are mixed for male and female. Toilets are separated from showers and soap is available but not shampoo. Rooms and bathrooms are generally clean, but there seem to be some cockroaches around.

Common Spaces

There is an elevator to go to the third floor, where the reception is, and a nice area with sofas and a TV that shows live sports. The hostel has a lot of flyers from bars, restaurants, and activities to help guests decide what to do. There is also a balcony with some chairs and a hammock that can be used all day and night long. A kitchen free of use for guests is available and the equipment is quite new. The hostel is run by the owner, an Italian guy who helps a lot on providing tips and advices for the rest of the trip. The vibe is relaxed, and it's not a party hostel but a quiet social place where you can chill in the balcony and have some conversations with other travelers or the owner himself.


This place is a great choice for those looking to be in the middle of everything. Bars, clubs, a supermarket, and the beach are all at a maximum five-minute walk. The place is not a party spot, but great for backpackers that prefer a quieter time and want to socialize and chill on the couch.
