Property Description

Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are rather remote beach towns, and that is what makes them so special! Thankfully, even though we are a little off the beaten path, there are still quite a few services available to visitors. This is a excellent area to relax practicing of Yoga and Surf.

On the first floor, we have six private rooms, ideal for single travelers, couples or pairs of friends. The rooms have either a double bed or two single beds. We also have two larger private rooms on the first floor, each with beds for three people. Scroll down for photos and prices for our private rooms. Upstairs you will find the apartment plus three additional rooms with varying capacities, featuring exterior doors as well as interior doors connecting to the apartment. An abundance of shared bathrooms are also located on the first floor (there are many to choose from and they are always clean!).

We also have two well-equipped communal kitchens, including our signature chef’s kitchen, complete with a professional quality stove, microwave, blenders, and a giant stainless steel refrigerator. We offer a amazing Yoga deck with every day class. Our helpful, bilingual staff is always ready to help plan other tours and activities in the area, including surf lessons, canopy tours, stand up paddleboarding (SUP), visits to nearby waterfalls, fishing, sailing, snorkeling, horseback riding, ATV rentals and more. We can also assist you with restaurant recommendations, reservations and travel planning, so your trip can be totally relaxing and worry-free!

I really really enjoyed this hostel. It’s right by the beach and has a market across the street. Everyone was super friendly and the hangout areas/kitchen made it easy to start convos or just chill. The bathrooms and showers were clean & beds were comfortable. Only thing is no ac but that’s common here.

I loved my time at Casa Zen! Having read the reviews about heat in rooms I was nervous but had a room with A/C which was glorious. The yoga deck was incredible and like a fancy retreat vs hostel. Location is perfect and all the amenities are fab. Yes there are mosquitos outside but you’re in the jungle/beaches of Costa Rica it’s like this everywhere so just wear repellent! I would stay here again in a heartbeat ❤️ thanks team!

Casa Zen was a really lovely place to stay in ST. Extremely close to the beach, practically on its doorstep! Clean space and a nice quiet vibe which attracts lovely people. Not a party hostel but still friendly. Quiet time is respected in the evenings which was a plus! Only problem was rooms got very hot and there is no AC. It’s manageable but not the most comfortable heat levels. Other than that, great place and would recommend especially money wise vs other places in the area!!
