"In all of my travels, never have I found a hostel that I am actually happy to hang out in all day long. What a beautiful energy you have created...I will return some day."

“The best hostel I've ever stayed at, this place has a good soul.”

"The Flutterby House is an amazing enchanting place. Just seconds away from a beautiful beach and to town. Besides the amazing location and the super cool architecture of the place, the people that stop by are worth meeting. During my stay I met some of the most amazing people of my life and had the time of my life. When you go, ask Pam to tell you about the Epic Swim. I miss the Flutterby House. I hope to go back there soon."

"I've stayed at the Flutterby House about a dozen times and it's always a great time. I'd recommend it to any low-maintenance traveler who likes to have fun. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and there is always a great group of people just hanging out. I like sleeping in the tree houses, but I'd recommend bugspray (not so much for the beds, as they all come equipped with nets, but" for just hanging out). The kitchen is a great place to make your own food, so stock up at the BM on the costanera and enjoy!"

"First impression of this place was, 'WOW! this looks perfect!' And you know what? This place is perfect! Forget about high class 5 star hotels, this one is much nicer. There is a great crew, lovely cabinas, an amazing atmosphere, great food and lots of positive energy. Thanks a lot! This was a one-of-a-kind finale of our fantastic 3 weeks in Costa Rica!"
