    The staff and overall management of this hostel are so great! I had some issues that the woman at the front was extremely helpful with. She let me borrow the phone, was very helpful with directions and information. I even accidently overbooked myself two places at once, she allowed a refund even though it was entirely my mistake. This place is run by good people. Great hostel!

    The hostel is set in a great location in Santa Teresa. The yoga classes are amazing! The atmosphere is super chill and the owner is equally chill. Clean hostel overall and there is a security guard during the night. Only thing I would say is the showers need a little upgrade. What I thought was really nice was how each room had its own fridge.

    Super chill with hammocks and beds to lie on after a long day. Great WiFi to work if you have a computer. Dorms and kitchen are a bit basic and there wasn't too much atmosphere in the evenings there but that more depends on who's in the hostel at the time. Host was super chill and would recommend to someone looking for a cheap dorm in Santa

    Very Good

    Great hostel with a good atmosphere and really nice people. The location is perfect, close to the beach and all the restaurants and shops. The amenities could get some improvements however, the bathrooms are a bit old so not very comfortable to share with 7 other people. Except from this issue, I would recommend staying at Don Jon’s.

    Online it doesn’t make it very clear the rooms that you are booking, as we where expecting to be in the all wood lodges and instead was in a dark damp box room. The kitchen wasn’t the cleanest and the location isn’t near the central of town it’s a 45minute walk to where most of the development is. Was close to the beach which was nice

    Good location, if you don’t mind a lot of dust!! Near supermarket and some shops and restaurants. The air conditioning leaked in our room and was barely on, so we slept badly. The shower in our room had no shower head, the shower outside was better. Pretty sure my pillow gave me a bad neck too :(

    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.
