In my nearly 2 months of travel I´ve come back to this place 3 times and stayed close to 3 weeks total. very relaxed place. Nice kitchen and common areas. Owners are super helpful and friendly along with the staff. I slept well each night. The surf is located across the road another 150 yards and your on a beautiful pristine beach with consistent beach break with good vibes. My favortie hostel so far in my travels.

Super clean, spacious rooms and bathrooms, incredibly friendly hosts (helping you with really everything!!!), very close beach access, restaurants/bars/shops nearby, great surf...THE location to stay at while visting Santa Teresa!!! Lonely Planet is definitly right naming the place "our pick"...it's really the best and most friendly place I stayed at in Costa Rica! I stayed there for four nights and planned to go on travelling...but I did change my mind after only two days and returned for another five nights. The place just rocks and you might get stuck there!!! :)

I had an amazing stay at Cuesta Arriba Hotel. I was planning on staying only one night but ended up with six! Excellent kitchen, swimming pool, common areas, rooms and bathrooms. Superb location and great surf. Super affordable prices.

This place is perfect for surfers. You can grab your board and walk about 100m down to the beach. The beach is beautiful! The hostel pool is great to cool off. Dorms have 'handluggage-size' lockers, If I remember correctly, my dorm bed was 13$/night. WIFI works well.
The kitchen provides all you need for cooking, incl a big fridge - it's the cleanest hostel-kitchen i have seen during my 3 month trip. big supermarket is max 5min walking distance away. coffee, toast & jelly for breakfast is included. otherwise there are few restaurants and a soda in walking distance. If you like to explore further, take a left down the street and rent bicycles.
Righ after I left, the hostel closed for a certain time for maintanance..

I have been to Cuesta Arriba twice in the last few months. In fact, I was there once in august, and definitely had to go back a second time (and travelled all the way from the Carribean Coast just to do so!) For me, this hostel and Santa Teresa in general was a highlight in our trip and definitely a favorite. I have stayed in 4-bed dorms (first time) and in a private room (2nd time). Everything was clean and nice! The hostel is situated a little away from the main "city center" (so a 10-minute drive from ATM for example, which is definitely fine by car though) but there is a grocery store and a great soda (typical restaurant) next door. Many restaurants are walking distance. A simple breakfast is served (toast and coffee). It is situated just across the street from an amazing beach and is a great place for experiences surfers. The kitchen is nice and clean, with a large fridge and is well furnished and the pool area is great! You can also rent surf boards directly from the hostel, which is great for beginners! The hosts were nice and helpful with everything. We met really nice people there and it was relaxing and a lot of fun at the same time! Would definitely recommend to anyone and will go back one day!
