I stayed at Don Jon's for 1 week, May 2012.
The place was everything I wanted and much more.
The location is right next to the beach where most people go out surfing from.
I stayed at the dormitories which were spacious, clean and comfortable.
The room has AC which is good if you just started travelling in CR and still not used to the heat. The room had also a fridge and a microwave oven which was great since I used to cook at the communal kitchen at night and had the leftovers the following day.
The food at the restaurant was really good. I usually don't care much for burritos, but the ones they serve here were really good. The fruit shakes are also great.
But the best thing about the place was the staff.
Ruth and Jon did a great job and it was a great pleasure to meet them.
Luna and Rambo made sure everybody is safe and relaxed.
Jon even suggested to loan me some beer money when the ATMs broke and I was stranded without money.
I would definitely stay here again if I would go the Santa Teresa.
