"All very well organised with special care of the guests!"
The surf instructor was very professional putting safety on first position. Always concerned about his students, explaining all very good. Giving good advises and carrying about how to improve the level of the student.

"Solo Surfer trip - AMAZING experience: I’m a better surfer!"
Location is awesome. The surf lessons, which is the whole reason I came her, were AWESOME. Marcos is patient but pushes you. His goal was to make sure I improved as a surfer, not just to get pretty pictures. He worked on technique with me & helped me admonish bad habits. You’d never know it, since Marcos is so understated & humble - he’s an expert, very well-respected in the community. While I was at the surf camp, the Spain Travel channel came out to tape his surf lessons. He never batted an eye or made a big deal out of it. Amidst it all, my surf lessons continued without missing a single beat. I would HIGHLY recommend Marcos! La Botella De Leche is a very clean hostel, with lots of community space for meeting the others at the Hostel. The Kitchen, eating area, lounging area, pool are all GREAT - I used all of the spaces. The people are super nice - very welcoming and accommodating. Yoga was AWESOME - so needed after many days surfing. The massage - Sandra, is not just a massage therapist, she is a physiotherapist, the only one in town. The massage was amazing, and I also opted for dry-needling, which greatly alleviated my tight shoulders. I met tons of GREAT people at the hostel, and made new friends of the staff and fellow travelers. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

"Live and let live"
Everyone in this hostel follows his own agenda, be it from just hanging around and doing nothing until being busy the whole day and night long with surfing, adventure trips, yoga and nightlife or living as a digital nomad and doing graphic design. Because the overall vibes are so good and the team in itself including the cleaning ladies has a good spirit, you just have to fell welcomed and automatically start to relax (as stressed Western European)...

Botella da leche was the best accomodation i had in Costa Rica. The atmosphere in the hostel was very relaxed and it‘s a really cool place to stay at. The hostel also offers plenty of fun activities to do. The staff and the owner are very friendly and pleasant people and i really enjoyed staying there. The surfcamp was very good and as a beginner i learned a lot. The surfinstructor, Markos, does a great job and gives his best to give you what you‘re looking for. He‘s a very good instructor with a lot of experience and patience. The pictures taken by Sandra are also really cool.
Thank you guys very much!
Best wishes and many greetings

"Best week of my trip"
Really nice atmosphere during the whole stay. The owners, staff and the surfteacher gave their best to give everybody a good experience. The hostel is close to the center (400m) but still far enough so you dont hear the clubs or traffic if you want to sleep. The surf instructor did a really good job, so we were progressing fast in some really nice waves.
