  • Description


    Hello, friends!

    We are a group of four, three argentinians and one russian, who are in love with traveling, surf, skate, yoga, good food, conscious living. It happened that we met up in a beautiful garden on the beach in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, fall in love with it, and decided to share the magic of this place with more people by having a hostel!

    We started operating since December 2017, offering shared and private rooms, there is a common space with TV & dining area, two communal kitchens (indoor & outdoor), lots of hammocks, space for yoga, bonfire and BBQ. While the most of the space is ready and we are receiving guests, there are various projects we still want to set up: deck for yoga, skate ramps / bowl, backyard bar, green-house and garden, more comfy places & furnitures to chill etc.

    This place became a comfy home for us between travels, and a lot of guests we had until now changed their tickets to be able to stay for longer =) So, we are looking for committed, life-loving, enthusiastic souls, who can be part of our team, ready to devote their minds & hands to make this place better for more travelers to come.

    We have a lot of guests on daily basis from different parts of the world, so you can practice your language skills, as well as to make lots of friends =)

    The hostel is right on the beach in front of the best surf spot in the village, good for all levels, so not only you can improve your surfing, but have the best time drinking your morning coffee, watching waves, or sipping mate, glazing amazing sunsets over the sea =)
