Thank you again for another safe, affordable, clean, and restful stay! If traveling alone, with friends or even with a kid I would recommend Hostel 7. The hostel has beautiful grounds, pool table, bike and surf rentals, a small library as well as basketball and volleyball. I felt very safe knowing there was overnight security and someone at the front... More

Stumbled into this hostel above Super Fresca and met Greg. He made the stay super chill and accommodating, helping us with whatever we needed. Room had working A/C, patio has... More

Talk about a true warming, welcoming, and relaxing atmosphere. Memo's Pura Vida hospitality was truly something that was purely authentic and genuine. I was traveling with a friend of mine and we were the crazy travelers who liked to stay in a different hostel every night in order to get to know more people and gain a greater feel for... More

I was fortunate enough to backpack through Costa Rica and stay at the Santa Teresa Hostel. Immediately, I noticed the relaxed vibe of the hostel and the kind faces of locals willing to help me have the best experience possible. I had planned to stay for only 4 nights but extended my stay to a week because I fell in... More

I recently stayed in the Santa Teresa Hostel and fully regret leaving!! I booked there for 4 nights and stayed for 7 because I could not leave. The hostel is extremely clean and such a good price. The location is ideal being located on top of a supermarket, right across from the beach and nearby everything. The atmosphere of the... More

The hostel is in a great location right above a grocery store. Everything was near by and the staff is really friendly and welcoming. The rooms are nice and clean and they have air conditioning. There is a hot tub, bat, and a pool table that you can use without additional charges. In general Memo and the others make you... More

Came across this place by pure luck, planned on staying for 2 days and ended up staying for 8 days. As a young couple we prefer to stay in a private room and usually have to pay a little bit more to do so but this hostel was very reasonable. Not only were the rooms a very good price but... More

The hostel owners, Barboza and Gregory, have a created a really cool atmosphere that is not only laid back but also friendly. They became friends during my days there while they take me surfing as well as ATV riding. The nights were relaxing and fun while we chilled at the hostel playing pool and listening to music. The kitchen was... More

My friends and I stayed at the Santa Teresa Hostel back in April 2012. We stumbled across it as we got off the bus in Santa Teresa. Memo greeted us as we entered and was willing to show us a room.
