    Everyone here super LAID back. I dig the vibe and got to know a couple of the guys working the hostel. They were super helpful when it came time to plan my bus ride back to the capitol. Always had some good tips on where to go for food, a swim or surf. Hammocks abound so you can kick back and put the feet up. There is two restaurants right out front and a super to the left and a soda to the right, the beach strip right in front. Honestly perfect locale. Would stay again.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Casa del Mar. Originally we had only booked 2 nights and ended up staying 8 days! The staff are very friendly and helpful, the price with free breakfast couldn't be beat, and the location was top notch for hitting the beach and town. The dorms were pretty standard, and the shower had good pressure and was a good height. I would definitely recommend staying here and saving yourself a lot of time and money while in Santa Teresa. Thanks Augustine and everyone else!

    my only complaints are (1) that there weren't any hooks for me to hang my towels or bathing suits on to dry and (2) they didn't clean the room the whole time we were there, just wish we had a broom in the room or something so we could sweep up the sand and dust we tracked inside

    Great hostel for surfers and backpackers alike. You can see the beach from the hostel (5 minute walk), store right next door. Kitchen was a little dirty but nothing disgusting, ATMs are far and normally out of money on weekends FYI. Water shut off twice in the week I stayed there, but only for a half hour tops. Staff is fun and helpful for any question you may have. Definitely for the younger crowd and people who are looking to have a fun experience. Awesome breakfast. Would stay again

    I stayed two nights, first booked 8 bed dorm, but payed the difference to switch to 6 bed dorm upstairs after I saw the room. Upstairs rooms worth the money difference if you insist on staying here. The hostel is close to the beach, sort of in the middle of Santa Teresa, but far from the center where the ATMs and such are located. In Santa Teresa, dust from dirt road seems to get everywhere. If you are not into surfing, I think there are better beaches in Costa Rica, but that is my 2 cents :)

    The best staff! However the room was too tight, no space for the bags. No area to socialize except the kitchen.

    Great staff, satisfying breakfast! The hostel is conveniently located near the beach and a supermarket. It’s a comfortable place to hang out! The dorms are a bit outdated compared to the rest of the venue and some bathrooms feel old/dirty and are in need of repairs. Overall, it’s been a pleasant stay!

    Emiliano was a rockstar host! The facilities were ok for the price. The location is a 10-12min walk to the good beach surf break.
