Yes. I loved it at Casa Zen! Beautiful hostel 1 minute from the beach, set back from the road. Large rooms and spotlessly clean everywhere... Loads of bathrooms and always found in a good, clean state. I'll go on a limb here and say Casa Zen seems to attract a nice, chilled, "zen" crowd... This is not a party hostel... More

The hostel has a nice garden and a patio with a roof and sofa's. This is a good place to relax. There is a kitchen behind the reception with 2 refrigerators, which works well. The bad here is that there are not a lot of tools and pans to cook with and most are old and not really usable. Would... More

If you're looking for a low cost yoga centric vacation on the beach, this place is for you. Rooms: I booked a triple room for myself and was still less than 1/2 the price I'd pay at a hotel. There are no rooms with private bathrooms as far as I could tell. The room decor was a little old, but... More

We enjoyed 3 peaceful nights at Casa Zen mid-December. We stayed in the apartment, which was well worth the small additional price as it included a private bathroom and a well-equiped kitchen. The guesthouse site is beautiful and "zen", there are hammocks, a gazebo, a small garden area and an outdoor yoga studio. Lots of great services available on-site including... More

We stayed in Casa Zen in October and it took a lot to drag ourselves away from this perfect little haven! The bedrooms and dorms are simple, but clean and have everything you need. The communal areas are lovely, a place for everyone, whether you want a quiet spot to read, or a place to natter with other guests. The... More

I've stayed at Casa Zen on and off since 2008. The new management has taken the place to the next level. Julio and Jen are excellent hosts and the staff retains some of the best of the old employees and some great new ones. The staff makes for a family feel. If you want to just get wasted and party...

I actually spend almost 2 or three weeks at this place including a stop on my way back on my Central America trip. It s a special place with special People. How could I describe it: it s a chill vibe but also possible that you end up drinking beer with other ( mostly surfer and /or yoga) people. I... More

This place has a wonderfully relaxing vibe. The design and facilities are excellent. It's a really nice place to just hang out. They don't have hot water, but you don't really need it. The one downside is that it's a bit of a hike to the surf-able beach. It'll take you 15 minutes to walk there. I guess that's not... More

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
