Iv'e been to alot of hostels, and nothing came close to this in terms of hospitality, service and vibe. Its the difference between feeling like a tourist and feeling like a local. Highly recommended!!!!!! Also 5 min from the best surf spot in santa and costa rica

SOOO. after being kicked out of my last hostel for lack of beds (even though I reserved ugh) I walked about 100 meters down the road to Cabinas Playa. They had a bed for me AND for another person that also got kicked out of the other hostel. Right away the vibe is incredibly friendly and reassuring for the person... More

You have to check out Cabinas Playa in Santa Teresa! Great atmosphere and right across from the beach and two of the biggest night life spots in the town. Also located in between the two grocery stores and near several great restaurants and surf board rentals. I have stayed at several hostels throughout the world and Cabinas Playa is definitely...

Very good vibe - you meet a lot of friendly people - staff is looking after you and have loads of cold beers ready for you after a long day surfing. But also... More

I'm gonna write this review from the bottom of my heart, because this is the place where the team of Cabinas Playa and everyone I met there, belong.

For a hostel is a nice and comfortable place. The owners are friendly and the stay is fun for the party people and also for the surfers as the hostel is in front of the best surf point! Can't wait to come back with my Brazilian girlfriends to have the perfect party blend: brazil + pura vida! ;-)
