    Second time back, definitely won’t be the last. The best hostel in Santa Teresa without a doubt. Super clean, super chilled, super comfortable and a two-minute walk from Playa Santa Teresa, but set back off the main road so not to get any traffic noise. I love it here!

    My wife and I had a wonderful time staying here. The vibe is very relaxed and it’s location is central so you can conveniently walk both ways to the nearby beaches and restaurants. The staff is super welcoming and kind. Definitely would recommend and will return one day. Pura Vida!

    I cannot say better things about this hostel and the hosts. I initially planned on staying at wavetrotters for 6 days and quickly decided to cancel all plans and extend for the rest of my trip. The home is a paradise - filled with genuine interesting people, awesome music, and just great all around energy. If you are a surfer you couldn’t ask for a more ideal spot - they have awesome surf rentals and are located right across from the best beach break entrance. Much love for the wavetrotter team!

    The hostel was honestly the highlight of my stay in Santa Teresa. Everything was so relaxing! And the owners are amazing. They recycle, compost, and even grow their own turmeric and ginger! That being said, it is mostly a surf hostel, so expect a lot of discussions about swells, boards, etc. All in all though, one of the best experience I ever had in a hostel!

    This was such a great spot to stay in. We even extended. Pepe and the team were super welcoming and always checked in on us to make sure we were happy. This is smack in the middle of everywhere you want to be. Walking distance to everything as well. You cannot go wrong staying here

    Only stayed one night to check out Santa Teresa but vibes seemed good and everyone was hanging out & going out together that night. Large kitchen area and spacious room with small lockers for valuables. Everything's within 10-15 minutes walk (beach, supermarket, restaurants, bars). Unrelated to the hostel: Don't count on the buses to connect when trying to catch the ferry and plan that you'll need to catch a taxi from Cóbano to Paquera (or wait for a couple of hours in Cóbano).
