    I really enjoyed my stay at Zeneida's surf garden. It was very spacious with 2 kitchens, kept clean throughout my stay and the overall vibe was just perfect. I will definitely come back here and stay for longer :)

    Great vibe! Right next to the beach, surf lessons/board rentals and yoga available every day. The Aura Bar on site is amazing and the staff is super nice. We didn't use the kitchen, but the toilets and our room were clean.

    Not sure if there was security 24/7, but we did not have a key to the room so it was open all day/night. The location was AMAZING... literally right on the beach! There were cute dogs & puppies all around (I wanted to take them all home!). The staff was great & ordered my shuttle. There are bikes & surfboards for rent. The guests are chill & friendly. The only thing that needed attention were the kitchens, as the refrigerators all were extremely nasty with ants & dirt. Best price/location!

    Great for surfing non stop. Located right on the beach. Really cool hang out area. Could do with some new pans for the kitchen and accepting card as payment at reception (closest ATM is 3 km away).

    A nice hostel right by the beach! Great places to hang out - tons of hammocks, two kitchens, and a lot of tables and games and places to chill. Since it's on the beach, naturally, sand gets everywhere but they cleaned regularly. Can get a bit hot but it was totally fine for me. They charge for drinking water, there are no towels, and only two bathrooms for a lot of beds meant waiting sometimes.

    Great place right on the beach. Very laid back surfer vibe with lots of open space to relax in hammocks or walk down into the beach

    Cool hostel with a chill vibe! Located on the beach just 100m from what people were saying is best surf break in Santa Teresa! Stayed in 4 person dorm and was a bit squished when full and had no AC in my room so it was hot (others had AC so it might have been a booking fault on my half). Cool hang out area with 2 kitchens! Dont know if it was just when i was there but it was all argentinians staying there so not being able to speak spanish made for not the best social scene!

    Very Good

    This place is probably the best located hostel in Santa Teresa. It’s on the best beach with great waves, clean sand and beautiful sunsets. However...! For an English speaker, there is literally no vibe. There are large groups of Spanish speakers who seem to have been living there for ages. They are all nice enough but virtually impossible to have any vibe. I moved to Dos Monos. At least 5-6 other travellers from NOR, DEU, USA and UK had done the same for the same reason. Good vibes in Dos Monos

    Nice location, very close to the beautiful beach. There was no room key and the reception wasn't always occupied. I would definitely suggest to bring a lock. The kitchen was well equipped with all amenities.
