We stayed at Casa Mazeta for four nights in August of 2014 enjoyed it thoroughly. The place is clean and orderly, the building itself is quite charming, location is very good, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Also, showers are hot (or cold if you so desire, of course). The common areas include a big area for watching movies... More

It's a great hostel and highly recommended. Friendly stuff, clean, excellent location, and an excellent deal. They have everything you like. I like to give them the highest rating for a hostel, and the standards are higher than most of the Choice hotels in the US. I certainly will stay there again.

My husband and I recently stayed 3 wonderful days in Casa Mazeta. Darren was very helpful with our travel plans. He helped us with the tour to Santa Ana, Apenaca Zip line and private transfer to the airport. We also enjoyed our many chats with him in the beautiful garden. The hostel was very clean and the staff super friendly.... More

This hostel is great. Friendly staff and guests, beautiful garden, hot water showers, nice private rooms, good price and the free welcome beer upon arrival is a great idea. Good for people of all ages, Spanish-engilsh flash cards, games, books, tv, kitchen. Couldn't ask for more.

Darren has done an amazing job with this hostel to make it your home for however long you stay. The dorm bunk beds are huge and really comfy and everything is so clean. There is one bathroom for 8 people (6 in dorm and 2 in private room), which didn't cause us any issues but you do have to wait... More

Casa Mazeta is a funky, clean hostel in Juayua. You can buy beer and coffee on the honor system. The main building is homey and Darren, the owner, is great to talk to. There is a courtyard full of plants and statues. We stayed in "La Pina," which is a small room with its own patio. It's worth staying in... More

Thanks for the funky review guys. So glad you liked our newest room. An outdoor shower and toilet may not be to everyone`s liking, but here in the tropics, we think it`s perfect! Shame about the mosquitoes, but why didn`t you use that mosquito net supplied? Also, we always stock a variety of coils and plug-ins to combat this problemita.... More

I think everything has been said before on here, I can't be original, it is an absolute must stop on Ruta de Flores, we planned two nights and stayed seven. The openness and friendliness of Darren and his staff just makes it difficult to leave even for the day. You must do the waterfall tour, it's so much fun and... More

Mil gracias chicos! Thank you very much for your review. We loved having you here for so long, especially watching the World Cup 3 times a day with you and all the rest of the crowd. Sometimes a group just come together and gel and are fantastic. You were that group. As a hostel owner, there is no better feeling... More

La Casa Mazeta was the most welcoming and comfortable hostel environment we've ever been to. Darren is an excellent host and his house is lovely. The staff there is top-notch and one if them is the best waterfall tour guide ever. The waterfall tour was one of our favorite parts about staying at La Casa Mazeata, but we'd like to... More
