Great hostel. Located very close to the beach and a supermarket is just across the street. yoga classes are great and other tours can be booked too. nice breakfast: toast butter jam and fruits. Would definitely stay again at this hostel. Rooms, Showers and toilettes were cleaned daily.


A couple of things that would've made our stay better: 1) better fan or an extra fan in our room... or a screen that wasn't broken because our room never cooled down, even when it was cool outside. 2) one of the staff members was rude at all times of the day... Loved that we were a couple of minutes to the beach and across the street was a good restaurant with amazing empanadas.


This place has a wonderfully relaxing vibe. The design and facilities are excellent. They don't have hot water, but you don't really need it. The one downside is that it's a bit of a hike to the surf-able beach. It'll take you 15 minutes to walk there. I guess that's not really that bad except there are other places much closer.


We had a very good stay. Good mood in general. Clean hostel, good kitchen and friendly staff. Location is good for ex. surfing. Restaurants nearby. Yoga is nice! I recommend strongly.

I spent fantastic 3 days in Casa Zen. Everything was brilliant mainly due to yoga classes and overall atmosphere of the place. The hostel is nicely located close to the beach and close to a bus stop and a supermarket which was very convenient. The facilities are good but I would change the matrasses in the dorm room as the springs were poking a bit. Breakfast was fantastic too.


By far the best hostel I have ever stayed in from years of traveling! The front desk was awesome! Laundry done in one day and rooms cleaned daily. Very clean, great communal space, hammock heaven, delicious breakfast included, awesome yoga and exercise classes, 1 min to the gorgeous beach, delicious food in town and nearby beaches were beautiful. The town is very spread out so rent a bike or quad. Everything at Casa zen makes up for the lack of ac and hot water (which you don't want anyway)


I think this is one of the better hostels in Santa Teresa. It's outside of town so it's quieter and close to the beach but a bit of a trek into town. Staff wasn't particularly friendly or helpful, just kinda there because they had to be. Dorms were nice with lockers and the place is constantly being kept clean. Bathrooms and showers we also a trek so go before bed. Nice breakfast included and great little lounge area.
