Stayed at Calocita for a week, rooms,beds and bathrooms all great for 2-3 travelers. Well organized, clean and well stocked communal kitchen. Perfect for surf trips, central location to all breaks,sodas,supers and restaurants. Christian, the owner and host, is an inviting and friendly surfer who is able to unlock all the local secrets including where to go and not to... More

I stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The owner, Chris, did a great job in designing the hotel and included a big, well stocked kitchen for common use. The rooms are big, modern, clean and comfortable. The hotel is located away from the street noise (which is important in Santa Teresa) but not a factor for street and beach... More

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
