Best Hostel in Santa Teresa. Amazing atmosphere. Just in between of the best two surf spots in Santa Teresa. Both less than 5 minuts walking from Casa del Mar Hostel. Perfect location. I will come back for sure.

This is my second time staying in casa del mar. The reason I came back is super relaxed atmosphere, perfect location and the value you get for the money. Casa del mar gets better and better all the time. Everything is well taken care off, clean and you can feel safe here also. Just in the front it has two... More

The BBQ was the best in town we were so full but couldn't stop eating. The sirloin and baby back ribs were to die for the best food during our whole trip and we ate in town every night. Santa Teresa is one of kind soooo amazing! The salad also and dressing was to die for as well

They offer great food and cold beer. Ate there with a friend for under $12 in total. After you eat you can walk down the road across the street to the beach. The owners and staff seemed very attentive and always had a smile.

We stumbled upon this place while we were looking for Casa Zen. This hostel has everything you need, full equipped kitchen with blender and freezer, restaurant and juice bar. Huge shady trees, plenty of hammock space. We were here for surfing so going to bed early, never heard the noise of the bar or restaurant. We found all staff helpful... More

We arrived in santa teresa and found casa del mar. As nice as it looked and as welcome as we were received by the hostess, it did not feel good staying here. The shower in the dorm room we stayed in was not working. The shower was not clean at all and the water kept running all night. Besides the... More

This review is for the bar portion. Aside from the hostel, they have an outdoors bar & restaurant. We walked in as we had seen a "live music" sign earlier in the day. There were locals and visitors mixed in the bar in a friendly, laid back athmosphere. The owner Cesar, came to greet us, made us feel welcomed and... More

I'd like to start by saying I never had a chance to eat any of the food so this is based just on the hostel room: It felt like I was in a sauna while staying in our prison like cell of a room. Beds were terrible, room was dirty with tons of holes in the bathroom window. We had... More
