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

Myself and 3 other gals stayed at Casa Zen for 4 nights during our cross country Costa Rica adventure. We stayed in 2 double rooms that were quiet, comfortable, and exceptionally clean. The shared bathroom and shower facilities were also immaculate and the set-up allowed for plenty of privacy. The property was beautiful and set up in a way that... More

Imagine 90 minutes in an open air studio with howler monkeys and birds as the soundtrack for your yoga class. That's how it is at Casa Zen's yoga center. They provide 3 yoga classes a day, 7 days a week, and teach a variety of practices like Ashtanga, Bhakti, Anusara and Vinyasa. All of the teachers are fantastic, unique in... More

My sister and I stayed here for a week in March, and it was the perfect place to base ourselves for the many things to do and see in Santa Teresa. Jennifer and Julio were very welcoming and knowledgable about the area, and their other staff were also very friendly. They helped us set up a surfing lesson (I have... More

This hostel is perfect if you are looking for surfing and yoga- just as the guest house says! Depending on what you want to do in Santa Teresa, this location is a little bit far from some of the other restaurants and shops closer to the main part of town. It really hosts a true surfers vibe. It is secluded... More
