Property Description

Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are rather remote beach towns, and that is what makes them so special! Thankfully, even though we are a little off the beaten path, there are still quite a few services available to visitors. This is a excellent area to relax practicing of Yoga and Surf.

On the first floor, we have six private rooms, ideal for single travelers, couples or pairs of friends. The rooms have either a double bed or two single beds. We also have two larger private rooms on the first floor, each with beds for three people. Scroll down for photos and prices for our private rooms. Upstairs you will find the apartment plus three additional rooms with varying capacities, featuring exterior doors as well as interior doors connecting to the apartment. An abundance of shared bathrooms are also located on the first floor (there are many to choose from and they are always clean!).

We also have two well-equipped communal kitchens, including our signature chef’s kitchen, complete with a professional quality stove, microwave, blenders, and a giant stainless steel refrigerator. We offer a amazing Yoga deck with every day class. Our helpful, bilingual staff is always ready to help plan other tours and activities in the area, including surf lessons, canopy tours, stand up paddleboarding (SUP), visits to nearby waterfalls, fishing, sailing, snorkeling, horseback riding, ATV rentals and more.

    Love this place!! Great vibe, great place to meet other travelers, especially as a solo female traveler. Guests and staff were so lovely, we had music pow wows at night in the common space. Location right on the beach like 2 minute walk. Walking distance to both ends of town. Rooms were kept clean, sheets changed every other day, laundry services and bike rentals offered. Just overall, so lovely, especially if you are a long-term traveler or digital nomad.

    This place is seriously amazing. A lot of places to seat and shared spaces, close to the beach, nice rooms and overall great stay. If you want to meet people it could happen in this hostel. Plus, a cute little puppy🤗

    Lovely hostel, can’t fault it :) obviously not for someone who’s wanting a party - hence ‘zen’ - but super nice for a chilled night with the yoga on offer as well! Free breakfast in the morning was lovely too.. lots of fruit

    Casa zen is a really nice place if you just looking to relax and not partying, there are no parties here, but yoga every day. The people are super kind and sweet, Nice place if you are a female solo traveler like me! The toilets were dirty but the kitchen was fine. I didn’t like the staff, don’t book any trips through them.. The staff booked a trip to the butterfly garden to me, I payed a lot for the shuttle bus but when I arrived the place was close, and he even called them?

    The place is nice and the owner too. But the rest of the stuff aren’t really helpful. Many of them don’t even say hi. My booking was for 3 nights. Otherwise I would have left earlier.

    The staff at this hostel were not very helpful or responsive and overcharged me for my stay; I am still trying to get a refund. The facilities are not clean and the location is right off the main street so it's really loud. The room I stayed in had a door that didn't fit the frame and so it made a horrible noise any time someone was coming in or out. The yoga classes were great, but I would not stay here again.

    Definitely the most unwelcoming hostel I have stayed in. The manager Julio who we saw briefly was lovely, but the other staff were rude and unhelpful. They rented us a broken bike with no lock and expected us to pay $50 after we had to leave it to get back to the hostel. Overall atmosphere is very hostile and we were made to feel like outsiders, especially by a group of unfriendly long term guests who took over most of the hostel. The only positive is the location. The rooms were hot and unclean
