We stayed in a private room with our own bathroom and it was perfect for our holiday in Santa Teresa. Luis was extremely helpful and made every effort to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for a week, and if we didn't have plans, we would have stayed longer. We stayed in a private room which was clean and quiet. There is a large common room inside with a TV and couches, and we as the best hammock area and pool table outside. The kitchen is big, with space for more than... More

We stayed at this Hostel after having a nice experience at its sister hostel, Pura Vida mini hostel in Tamarindo. It's a great place to stay if you're in a backpacking mood. It's cheap, dorms are fine but tight and there is plenty of places to hang out. The tenant, Andrew, was laid back and fun, but not a local,... More
