          I shared a lovely private room with a travel friend and it was so nice to be in a good place for a change. The rooms are great, the place is nice and quiet and it's generally just a good place to stay

          Best hostel ever! So clean, so friendly, made you feel right at home. Dorms are lovely and they are air conned (v.rare in Santa Teresa). Tree house private rooms are stunning. 2mins away from beach. Beautiful! Morning yoga classes in treehouse! Incredible.

          Hello, Thank you! The Don Jon*s team quickly took care of the bed bug situation replacing mattreses and fumigating the room. Unfortuantely this is something we do not have control over as it was travelers who brought us the little bed bug friends. As for the victim of the bugs, we of course apoligized and again we are sorry and wish it would have never happened. We are in the jungle a super natural setting full of life and with this brings all sorts of blood sucking animals which we all have to live with weather we like it or not. Also warning to all travelers, there are plenty of mosquitos, ticks, fleas, spiders, scorpions, bees, snakes, etc. so beware before you decide to come to the jungle. PURA VIDA

          My husband and I are looking to stay in the area. Do you have a private room? Does that room have AC? What is the cost? Do you have openings either Dec. 22nd-24th or 15-17th? Can you drive from Cocobeach on the road and not take the ferry? How long is the drive?
