    Super sick spot! Location is mint for surfing, 30 seconds from Playa Santa Teresa!! Vibe is unreal, super chill staff make you feel welcome. Always lots going on and plenty of friendly faces around! Our room was unreal and had A/C (would've been fine without). Kitchen has all the cooking gear you need, plenty of room for multiple people to cook at the same time, lots of fridge space. We were there for a week but I easily could've stayed for months. Counting down the days until I go back!PURAVIDA

    While a bit pricier than other hostels in Costa Rica, this place has an incredible location right by the beach and some of the best surf in Santa Teresa right in front of the hostel. The doors to the rooms are never locked but there are lockers in the rooms you can use and I never felt like it was an issue. Very chill atmosphere with friendly people. Perfect Santa Teresa hostel experience!

    The place is awesome! It’s really close from the beach which is perfect! I’d say that the only two things is that the kitchen smell a little bit and is a bit dirty... I’m a bit picky about that so I want out to eat almost everyday which is really expensive... The other thing is the water is not drinkable so you have to pay to drink water... but other then that is a really cool place! Bedroom are clean. I was in the 6 bedrooms dorm and we had AC, amen 🙏

    I only stayed a short while here, and it had the basics for what I needed. The staff were super friendly, and helpful. Other than that, I didn’t spend enough time to blend with the vibe of the place. Definitely more relaxed surfer hippie vibe.

    Staff was not very welcoming. Most hung out with each other (seemed like a lot of long term people staying). No real security, anyone could walk around hostel and no lock on the dorm room doors.

    The staff was very very nice but the place is just a mess. The toilets and showers are dirty because there are only just a few for wo many people Even the toilet/shower inside the dorm wasn't clean. I didn't see anyone cleaning them during the day or night. The hostel is NOT on the beach. It's 2-3min walk like any other hostel on the road. They pkay very loud music during the day and night,and the dorms are were the share area is, so don't expect to sleep much.
