I stayed in Don Jons for a week in august 2012 and the hostel is fantastic. Really friendly and helpful staff, great food. The Cabinas are a must if you stay here, really unique. also only about 200 meters from the Santa Teresa beach as well

I ended up staying at Don Jon's for two weeks in July 2012 and it was great. The dorm room was nice, great a/c (you could make it a fridge in there if you want), clean room and clean bathroom that is right there in the room. The owner Jon is really cool but he was only there a few days when I was there so I got to know Ruth better who works there each day. She is awesome. So friendly and thoughful and helpful. There are bikes on site to rent and as mentioned in the title the breakfast is great. The Papas Burrito had perfectly seasoned potatoes, eggs, avocado, cheese, with awesome sauces on the side and fresh fruit. All around good place.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon. The accomodations were comfortable and very safe. The surf was only 2-3 min walk away. Every thing you need is with in a few minutes walking distance. The food cooked at the hostel was good and not too pricey. There is also a kitchen if you like to cook and a mini fridge in each room. Best of all the surf was pumping....

From the moment my travel partner arrived at this hostel we were warmly welcomed. The owner, Jon,had waited for us as we arrived late from the bus ride from San Jose. We stayed in the dormitorio which again exceeded expectations. The beds were comfortable and were equipped with fresh sheets and pillow cases however you must supply your own towel. Rooms were cleaned daily. The grounds were well kept even including tree house teraces where anyone can go to relax in a hammock, read a book, or see a monkey. Restaurant served breakfast and lunch, buen comida, y toda la gente que trabaja aqui son amables y profesionales. Beach SO close. Overall highly recommended.

A MUST if you're staying in ST, stopping by to hang out with some kick-a** folks, or if you're in the mood for the best burrito of your life. Pick a hammock and veg, feel at home and fall in super love with the vibe. Very clean rooms (either dorms or cabins) and common areas to brush shoulders with fellow travelers and locals. Jon is the coolest most laid back brother you'll meet (his dogs and cat will reflect that energy) and I'm sure you'll be able to whiff his surfboard if you ask nicely! (It smells like coconut heaven from the daily wax job he gives it).
All in all, I had the perfect time here, a moment's walk from the perfect beach. Get over there, enjoy it as much as everyone else does, and become part of the Don Jon family.
