Stayed here with a friend for 3 nights in January 2015. This is a really great hostel right in the middle of Playa del Carmen on the south end of Santa Teresa. Chris, the owner, is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We had a stupid situation with our car rental that required a tow truck to arrive at midnight to... More

One of the best hostel/hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica. Excellent location(right near the beach entrance, beside a supermarket) you get a good night's rest, a room with 2 fans which is great! The bathroom is very spacious, we can actually say the shower was bigger than the one we have at home, it was fantastic! One of the... More

Stayed here for five nights (extended from two) and could not have been happier. Cooked, ate out, surfed, swam in the ocean, and went to fabulous morning yoga classes just up the hill. Chris' suggestions were very helpful, and we enjoyed everything about our stay at Calocita. Would highly recommend.

Calocita is in a great location near a supermarket and lots of great restaurants. It's also close to one of the beach accesses for Playa del Carmen and you can rent great surf boards from Chris and walk the 150 meters (or less) to the beach. When I felt like surfing at Playa Hermosa for a change, Chris called me... More

Cabinas is just perfect, great beds, private bathrooms, super clean, short walk from the beach yet "secretly" located and, the best part, totally affordable. Christian, the host, will do everything and anything to make his guests feel at home. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Santa Teresa.

First we stayed at Tranquilobackpackers and thought this place was great, but then there was no more space for us and we had to move... so we came to Chris' place and it's WAY better!!!! Rooms are clean, big and with nice private bathrooms - and the beds are real beds - and very calm! Located next to the supermarket,... More

Calocita was great! Chris the owner is very accomadating, laid back, and all around nice guy. The location is good, as its close to everything. I recomend renting a bike or ATV if you dont have a car or be prepaered to do a lot of walking. Everyone I met staying here was very nice and we all went out... More

I really enjoyed everything about these cabinas, stayed for nearly a couple weeks and will certainly come back. The owner Christian really makes the place run smoothly and has everything you need for a great trip. The rooms are clean and comfortable and are cleaned every two or three days. A shared kitchen has all the cooking tools to make... More

This place is GREAT. Christian is a fantastic host, and Calocita is a very nice, well-kept establishment situated perfectly between Playa Carmen and Playa Santa Teresa (closer to Playa Carmen). Beach access is a short 75m walk, the grocery store is just down the street, and the best restaurants in Santa Teresa are a short walk away. I'd say that... More
