This place was really popular with families and small children. The service was efficient and friendly. We tried the plate for two with a variety of meats and a sausage. Our favorite was the pork..such a great flavor! It was sooo much food we took it back to our rental and had it for lunch the next day. The waitress... More

The place is clean and the dorm rooms are spacious. A good place to stay for a few nights, but not too long for the following small points: - it's not very lively and a bit boring - there are not enough fans in the dorm rooms - no breakfast is included

Airy 6 bed dorm room is great! Clean facilities and comfortable beds. Amazing value for money. The staff are super friendly and helpful! Only negative is there is no included breakfast, but there is coffee available and a supermarket right next door so no worries anyway.

I found this hostel kind of boring. Not much social life in the shared area. Very poor kitchen facilities for so many people - but a good restaurant. Too hot rooms (doorms for 6)! The people at the reception is kind but do not know much about the trips they are selling. I found other hostels in ST with more... More

Although we did not stay here, we ate at the restaurant while in Costa Rica and it was absolutely phenomenal. We ordered the house special "Parillada" which was all of their meats grilled on an open fire grill with salad and 8 different condiments. Each cut of meat was delicious and tender. This might have been our favorite meal in... More

Casa del Mar is a good option for the budget-conscious traveler. We stayed in a dorm room for 2 nights. The rooms weren't anything special and very hot - just a few fans - but the price was hard to beat. It's only a 3 minute walk to the beach. The restaurant out front is very good and there is...

While staying in Santa Teresa we stumbled upon this place. We are both lunch and dinner here and everything was amazing. Great empanadas, sandwiches, and the pizza at night is delicious! Nice staff, great prices, and we highly recommend it!!

I spent three nights on my own at hostel casa del mar. After a group tour I was looking for a smaller more quiet hostel, and found what I was looking for. Still being slow season, I was the only person in my 8 bed dorm. And at a rate of 10USD a night, that's a great deal! The beds... More
