“PERFECT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Cabinas Playa was totally perfect, the crew, the place, the atmosphere, the service, everything! We had the best time there. We met some really nice people and we love the relax and cool atmosphere. We always had a place to chill and enjoy la pura vida de costa rica. Moreover, the access to the beach is just in front of the hostel. The nicest place in Santa Teresa!!!! Thank you for everything!!!

Cabinas playa was a really awesome place to stay! First of all it is right next to the beach entrance and a bar! Also the crew and relaxed atmosphere were really fun, we met a bunch of cool people. I highly recommend this hostel and i'm going back for sure next year :D

Iv'e been to alot of hostels, and nothing came close to this in terms of hospitality, service and vibe. Its the difference between feeling like a tourist and feeling like a local. Highly recommended!!!!!! Also 5 min from the best surf spot in santa and costa rica

Perfect, amazing atmosphere, after once this place you can not go back to Santa and go to another hotel! Warm people who always want to help! Second walk from the beach!
Never boring!
amir and idan always happy and doing fun and good atmosphere!
In short who comes to Santa and comes cabinas playa can not experience that Costa Rica is!
Love you to hope to return soon

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.
