Great place to stay in a dorm or private room. Warm, welcoming owner that reflects back to the guests that stay for a short or extended time. Very clean. Great open communal kitchen with everything you need to prepare fine meals. Prices are extremely reasonable for what the room or dorm provides. Secure and safe place. Great experience to fill...

We had a great time staying at Caza Olas and recommend it to everyone. Very well kept and clean. There was a cleaning lady there every day and she would also cook food for us if we asked. There is a full kitchen two refrigerators and plenty of fresh clean water which was kept cold for drinking.

Caza Olas has every trimming you could want for a surf trip -- hammocks, a spacious and super well-equipped kitchen, clean rooms with wooden floors and whitewashed walls, a jungle garden, and it's very close to the wave. But that's all superficial. Caza Olas has something more, something you find in very few places around the world. It comes from... More

For the traveling surfer it hits the spot - experience the world class waves only 2-3 minutes walk from the front door, they have a secure bodega for safely storing your quiver in neat racks (you...

I went to Caza Olas and intended to stay a few days. I ended up there for 3 months. This is a great hostel for anyone who wants to experience Pavones. It takes 2 minutes to walk to the wave. The kitchen may be the cleanest I have seen in any hostel, and the same can be said for the... More

I had a fantastic time at Caza Olas and went even back for another week! Staff and owner are very friendly, the hostel is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. Caza Olas feels like home and is a hostel with family flair. It is in the center of Pavones, 2 min walk to the perfect wave of Pavones!... More

Pavones is no secret to the initiated and I am now pleased to be in on it. We stayed a week and Jenny the housekeeper/secretary/guide/all round beautiful person made our time there amazing. She embodies Costa Rican hospitality and made our stay really enjoyable even when we were annoying, mucking around with our booking. The facilities have all you need... More
