This was by far the best hostel we saw in the area of Santa Teresa! Colourful, safe, friendly and fun! Breakfast included, helpful staff, great for meeting people and for organizing activities in the area. Close to the beach and across the road from fantastic restaurants. We loved our apartment room and would highly recommend it to couples. The yoga... More

I was staying in a rental house down the road in Santa Teresa with a few friends and attended a couple yoga classes on Casa Zen's lovely covered outdoor yoga deck. The managers, Jenny & Julio (I think!), were so friendly and the space was so lovely that i decided to book a private apartment for 2 nights as a... More

After working in Costa Rica for a few weeks this place was exactly what I was looking for. Quiet, relaxing, laid back with fantastic yoga classes and delicious fresh fruit for breakfast. No hot water but thus was not a problem given the weather. The rooms were ok but it's the atmosphere and the yoga on the wooden deck and... More

Casa Zen is amazing! It is incredibly clean and the staff feel like family. I extended my stay by two months here -as it was amazing to have Yoga just steps from my doorway and a beautiful beach about a 100 meters away. It consistently draws a great group of people -most practice yoga and surf -all are friendly and... More

Very nice and clean hostel! Very friendly and helpful staff that serves good breakfast every morning. Yoga classes were good both for beginners and experienced. Right at the beach, just have to walk a few hundred meter to the side to reach good surf spots. They rent bikes and surfboards and wash your clothes. A good place to meet people!... More

Casa Zen was a great experience, given the town is small and spread out without a vehicle, it can be hard to get around. This made casa zen a great place to chill. Yoga twice a day if u need, bikes and surfboards for rent. (Caution surf is NOT for beginners as huge cross winds and rocks everywhere). The staff... More

The Hostel has nice shared rooms, for instance you have: - yoga deck where you can also chill in a hammock - place to eat - place to read or play and have your lunch The bedrooms are pretty dark and we recommend to ask for an other fan, because it´s kind of hot in the night. But it´s clean... More

If your into yoga, then this is the most affordable yoga place in Santa Teresa. It feels more like a hotel than a hostel, but with hostel prices for the dorm rooms. There are private rooms available also. All night security keeps the riff raff out. They definitely live up to their name. The vibe is super zen, including the... More

Beautiful Guest house 2 mins walk from the ocean. Very nice ambient & there's a deck upstair for yoga class in nature and the class are just perfect. The place is very clean and the breakfast included (Cafe, tostadas y frutas). Otherwise you can cook in the huge, amazing kitchen. The only negative for me was that there's no private... More

I was new to staying in hostels and had a few bad experiences before I found Casa Zen. It is the best hostel I have stayed at. When i first got there the owner really did not seem very friendly but he was okay in the end. The room was clean, comfortable and the location is absolutely ideal! Close to... More
