    Great ownership. Don and his family made me feel at home. Can't wait to head back and spend time at this hostel again. Good place for a surfer or non surfer! Great yoga instructors too!

    Don Jon's is super chill! I highly recommend their private rooms. The owner Jon is extremely friendly and chill. People here are nice. Get a little non-tourisy hippie vibe here in ST!

    Wonderful place to stay in Santa Teresa. Two minute walk from the Santa Teresa access to the beach. Atmosphere was amazing - very social, very relaxed, and super fun! They do DJ nights and also just make you feel part of the family! We rented a cabana, which was delightful! Didn't have AC but multiple fans and your own deck/hammock. We absolutely loved our stay and ended up extending it! We miss the Don Jon's family 😍

    Functional place, a bit overcrowded. The room located at the bottom of the property is quiet, but lacks of ventilation. The shower could be more separated than the rest of the room. Really curteous and helpfuk staff.

    Had the best time while in Costa Rica here. A great atmosphere , great breakfasts and smoothies and also close to the beach and good restaurants . I could have easily stayed here for much longer as it and Santa Teresa as a whole has an island vibe about it. Would definitely stay again.

    We stayed both in dorm and in a private room. The dorm was not very clean, but the people staying in our room were very nice. Our private room did not have AC and was SUPER hot. Other than that it was cosy and nice.

    Although we had a good time in Santa Teresa and met some cool people to hang out with, the actual hostel itself was quite mediocre. It is located next to a a big drain, and you could smell it the whole time we were there (dry season). In addition, the kitchen facilities and supplies were pretty average. The only thing you could cook with was a portable 4 burner gas cooker. Bathrooms in dorms are small not ventilated well. Thought it was over-priced for two people some private AirBnbs are cheaper

    Don Jon's was very disappointing compared to its reviews. The room was dirty and smelled and the doors didn't close properly. Whilst trying to sleep, the hostel's dog tried to climb into bed with everyone on bottom bunks repeatedly, which whilst funny the morning after, was not great at 2am. The pictures are not representative of where you actually sleep. The only positive I have is that the staff let us cancel our stay 1 night early without any hassle.
