Coll place, Young vibe. Once you get to cabinas playa you get to fell the real atmosphere off a family in a hostel. The owners, Amir and Idan, are tow fun and young guys thet are willing to help in everything at any time.
the staying in cabinas is like long lasting party combain with beautiful beaches and amazing surf spots just 50m oway.
The best place to be in senta Teresa! You wouldn't know until you try! ;) thank you cabinas until next time...

I went to cabinas playas for 2 weeks and had an awesome time there. This place is managed by Amir and Idan and they will always give you the right advice about the best surf spots, place to eat or to go out ! After 2 days we all went friend and go surfing and cooking together. Every night they play funny and surf movies and organize pool or chess session. I stay on the room number 4 , and it was cleaned every day. I enjoyed the outside wood showers after been in the ocean. The pool is good to refresh and you have one of the best beach break of Central America right across the street !

This is legit the best dorms I stayed in during my trip in Costa Rica. Had a blast here! The hostel is located at like 2 minutes of the beast break in Santa Theresa: the surfing of the beach in front is amazing!! Idan and Amir are two great hosts, always ready to accomodate. There's everything you need ine the place. Kitchen (guys, please buy some new pan though!), mini convenient store in reception, pool, pool table, chilling lounge, surf racks, and a super cool maid that cleans perfectly all the place every day.

SOOO. after being kicked out of my last hostel for lack of beds (even though I reserved ugh) I walked about 100 meters down the road to Cabinas Playa. They had a bed for me AND for another person that also got kicked out of the other hostel. Right away the vibe is incredibly friendly and reassuring for the person staying there- they are relaxed but not devoid of customer service in the slightest... Something experienced in my last hostel. So yea. Thank god.
Also music is playing all day, I like that. Just a stones throw away from entrance to beach. And these dudes are willing to help you for your travels. Woohoooo.

You have to check out Cabinas Playa in Santa Teresa! Great atmosphere and right across from the beach and two of the biggest night life spots in the town. Also located in between the two grocery stores and near several great restaurants and surf board rentals. I have stayed at several hostels throughout the world and Cabinas Playa is definitely my favorite. The owners are very friendly, knowledgeable and fun to hang with. Hammocks every where, a pool to refresh yourself after a day in the salt water and sand, pool table, and large communal area to chill in by day and party at night. Kitchen with refrigerator to cook but they also sell a good variety of delicious food at a fair price. Also have bike rentals. It's clean, friendly, and outgoing, with great vibes. They provide dorms, private rooms, camping, or hammocks at some of the best prices in town. I highly recommend you check out the best spot to chill in Santa Teresa! Pura Vida <3

The location is perfect to get to the best beach break of the area,as its in front of the hostel,you only just have to cross the street.
Very good vibe - you meet a lot of friendly people - staff is looking after you and have loads of cold beers ready for you after a long day surfing. But also the food they make is great.

We first spent 2 nights there and then went travelling across the country but we decided to come back and finish our trip at cabinas playa because you feel just great when you are there.

I'll be back for sure.

I'm gonna write this review from the bottom of my heart, because this is the place where the team of Cabinas Playa and everyone I met there, belong.

Me and my friend arrived to Sta Teresa to spend a few days and ended up staying muuuuuuuuuch more than expected. It was just what where expecting for our holidays, we felt like ¨home¨since the day we arrived, sweaty and tired of looking for an accommodation. They got us the best room and treat us both like part of the group since minute one.

Location is perfect, i truly recommend the sunsets at the beach, just across the street, the movie nights, the food that Antoine cooks with love and and the laughs at the pool with a cool beer.

There is nothing much to add to a place runned by people who love what they do and, day by day, make the effort to make your stay in Sta Teresa, a place to remember.

Keep doing what you do, this is what make Cabinas such a special place :)

we love you guys! big kiss from home in Spain! xx

PURA VIDA!
