This was by far the best place to stay for a solo traveler in Santa Teresa. They have private rooms and also dorm rooms available. The dorm rooms were very affordable. I extended my stay by 2 nights. I stayed in a six person dorm and it was very comfortable, there is plenty of space for everybody's belongings and even... More

We stayed at Casa Zen 'Yoga Retreat/Guest House' in May 2016. We were looking forward to our stay, a chance to relax in a chilled place, with a nice communal vibe. The welcome wasn't quite what we expected, the first things we were told were being asked for a deposit for towels (first time in 3 months we'd been asked),... More

The hostel was average, I don't really understand all the hype around this place. The rooms were clean but there could have been more of a hangout common area. Lacking in hammocks and it's kinda weird waking up to a random lounging in the hammock outside your room. The power went out 2 of the 3 nights I spent there... More

I seriously can't say enough good things about my experience here at Casazen! I was booked in for a 7 day yoga retreat with them as this was my main reason for my trip, and I ended up staying 16 days! The yoga retreats are so affordable when coupled with the accommodation, you can't find a better deal in a... More

We booked the retreat package for 7 days which was a good deal for the room and unlimited yoga. The place is a nice set up with good yoga instructors. Classes can get crowded at times so good to get a spot early. We are very social hostel orientated people so that Casa Zen was not our style. The staff... More

Beautiful hostel, loved that yoga was offered. The rooms were very well kept and clean. The lounge area was extremely cute as well and relaxing. Casa zen is very close to the beach which was beautiful! However, not having air conditioning was difficult for me (it is so hot), and I didn't like not having a bathroom in my room... More

This place is amazing. Highly recommended the best place in Santa Teresa to stay. Breakfast is a bonus and not offered in other places rooms are super cosy. Yoga space is amazing. Short walk to beach like 1 min. The only negative is it needs more kitchen stuff for cooking.

On my first solo trip around Costa Rica, I started off in Santa Teresa. I chose Casa Zen because they had daily yoga classes and the space was so beautiful. I'd say is one of the best places to stay in the area. Not the cheapest one, but it's worth every penny. I made good friends in this hostel, and... More

As a three time visitor to Santa Teresa, I was hesitant to stay in a hostel. The idea of shared bathrooms for a group of females over 50 years old from the states was on the surface scary. The cleanliness of the bathrooms, polite staff and considerate guests made this a wonderful experience. The check in was positive as I... More

Casa Zen is a very relaxed hostel. It has a lot of rooms / beds but you don't have the feeling that is that busy. There are 2 good kitchens. The rooms a very clean, the location is perfect (close to beach, supermarket and restaurants). The boss, Joe, is a great guy and so is the staff. The hammocks around... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are rather remote beach towns, and that is what makes them so special! Thankfully, even though we are a little off the beaten path, there are still quite a few services available to visitors. This is a excellent area to relax practicing of Yoga and Surf.On the first floor, we have six private rooms, ideal for single travelers, couples or pairs of friends. The rooms have either a double bed or two single beds. We also have two larger private rooms on the first floor, each with beds for three people. Scroll down for photos and prices for our private rooms. Upstairs you will find the apartment plus three additional rooms with varying capacities, featuring exterior doors as well as interior doors connecting to the apartment. An abundance of shared bathrooms are also located on the first floor (there are many to choose from and they are always clean!).We also have two well-equipped communal kitchens, including our signature chef’s kitchen, complete with a professional quality stove, microwave, blenders, and a giant stainless steel refrigerator. We offer a amazing Yoga deck with every day class. Our helpful, bilingual staff is always ready to help plan other tours and activities in the area, including surf lessons, canopy tours, stand up paddleboarding (SUP), visits to nearby waterfalls, fishing, sailing, snorkeling, horseback riding, ATV rentals and more. We can also assist you with restaurant recommendations, reservations and travel planning, so your trip can be totally relaxing and worry-free! ... more   less
