We stayed in the treehouse for 3 days of our Costa Rica holiday, simply the best place to stay in Santa Teresa, staff are so lovely, and have even got up early to do our breakfast this morning before our early shuttle out, I cannot...More
I stayed at three other hostels in Malpais - this was certainly my favorite. The dorms are clean and comfortable and they have AC. Don Jon's has a welcoming atmosphere. There also have beautiful private rooms in a newly built tree house. The front desk...More
This place I think you love it or hate it. If you don't surf don't come. Absolutely nothing to do. When checking in there was a cat on my bed. There are cats and dogs running about all throughout the hostel. No hot water. If...More

Response from Jonathan P, Owner at Don Jon's Lodge and Restaurante
YES this is the jungle and I guess its full of animals and nature and amazing beach and the grand pacific ocean, and most of all NOTHING TO DO which is exactly how we like it and why our guests love it here so much!...More
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.

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.
