Bed and pillows were comfy, sheets were fresh and clean. Mano comes from the hospitality industry and it's easy to tell since he...

This is the most fun hostel in Tamarindo and we are recommending it to all our friends. Manu and his family were such welcoming and gracious hosts. La Botella has the nicest staff ever and we had so much fun. The fantastic four took us surfing and snorkelling and they made sure everyone at the hostel had the best time....

Although we were here for only one night we would absolutely recommend this hostel to other budget travellers. We were in a 4 person private room with ensuite. Amazing. It had a King bed, with memory foam mattress and plump pillows. Such a treat! And a bunkbed. The 4 of us were very comfortable. The place has a nice large...
