Pura Vida MINI Hostel –Santa Teresa – is a sister property to famous Pura Vida MINI Hostel in Tamarindo. Our newly acquired sister hostel in Santa Teresa is getting a new makeover. With fresh paint and many fantastic updates to fit everyone’s needs and styles...

We have fully stacked and always CLEAN communal kitchen, 2 large fridges, plenty of work space, some spices are included, and a stove to cook on... not to mention fantastic swimming pool to cool off during your surfing break!

We have many different styles of private rooms, with private bath or shared bath, private rustic bungalows, some rooms have safes and lockers. The dorm rooms we have 2 types to fit your budget – you can choose a dorm room with AC or a smaller one, or just a basic dorm room depending on your budget. Rooms are being cleaned daily and we are very particular and meticulous about the cleanliness of our hostel, the common areas and the rooms.

We have excellent location in the heart of Santa Teresa, only 150 meters from the surf break and the beautiful beach. 30 seconds walking distance to the nearest super market, shops, bars, restaurants, and nightlife. But away from all the dust and hassle and bustle of this little town in our own private sanctuary with the swimming pool and a bar!

We have excellent, happy and always smiling, bi-lingual staff that has incredible and waste knowledge of the local area, tours, shuttles, and of Costa Rica. We can help you arrange all your activities, your next hostel stays, recommend off the beaten track attractions like the ATVs back road trip to Montezuma (…shhh)

Come to stay with us if you want to meet great people from all over the world, have fun, party and experience the real Pura Vida Atmosphere, clean hostel and fantastic staff.

Located Near

We are in Santa Teresa right across the street from the BEST SURF Break - on the side street between restaurant called 'Soda La Amistad' and Supermarket 'Rony I' on this side street come up 50 meters and we are on the right side.
