My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this hostel at random, from the outside it looks very expensive, a lit up at night with hammocks and a nice restaurant attached. Our private double room was very spacious and decorated beautifully. The balcony and hammock area was great to relax and the attached restaurant was fantastic to eat at when we wanted... More

We stayed at several hostels in Santa Teresa, but Casa del mar is definitely the best one you can fins there. Really close to the beach, the supermarket and the restaurant is really good. They have their one kitchen and lots of hammocks. We had a perfect stay

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.

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
