Me and a friend had been traveling for 30h straight when we arrived at Don Jon's. Not only did Jon (the hostel owner) go up from bed and greeted us (although we booked on our way there), he also served us with some ice cold beer which tasted like liquified paradise at the hour.
We stayed in a private room with, roof fan, fridge, a nice clean bathroom (refreshing cold water shower) and 3 good beds. Outside the room there was a small terrace with a hammock. On the third and top floor of the cabins there is also some hammocks one can relax in.
The place is as close to the beach as practically possible if not beach front. Restaurants, surf shops and grocery store next door.
For those who cook there is a small kitchen but we enjoyed the best burritos in Santa Teresa instead. Jon had also composed a nice ceviche that I now try to cook at home!
We aimed to just stay a few nights and try to find a surf camp. Due to the relaxed atmosphere (still open for good night out), the authentic service, and local knowledge we stayed our whole time here - something I'm really happy for.
I'm going back!
