“The best place to stay in Santa Teresa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013 via mobile

We want to give a warm recommendation of Hostel seven in Santa Teresa. The original plan was to stay two nights, and we end up staying over a week , thanks to the good atmosphere and worm feeling we resived from the staff. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. the shared kitchen is clean and fully equipped. the staff is very friendly and always willing to help with anything ,with a smile and good will. The location is great -close to the beach and to the center. Gingi,the owner of the place, has an extensive knowledge and always ready to give advice and help. Gingi also has new upgraded luxury apartments (close to the hostel ) with a privet upgraded fully equipped kitchen which we stayed in for a few nights and had the best time. Shortly-go to hostel seven!!!

Stayed March 2013, travelled as a couple

My friend and I came to Santa Teresa only planning on staying a couple of days. We liked this Hostel so much that we kept extending our stay. We were given the nickname "One more Night" because we kept adding another day to our trip. We stayed 12 days mainly because we felt safe and secure at Hostel 7. The staff was warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. If you wanted to go on a tour they would set it up for you. If you needed a good place to eat they were always there to recommend. Gingi (the owner) went out of his way to help you and get to know you, make sure there weren't ever any problems. I have never felt so content and relaxed on a vacation! My only complaint is I'm a light sleeper so I woke up to everything, people staying up late talking or getting up early to surf. I would recommend a private room if you sleep light.

Stayed here for 6 nights just, cool hostel, good kitchen, 2 big fridges for food and beer, pool table, hammocks, dorms, cheap privates and expensive privates, good bathrooms, outside shower to rinse off after surf, parking, close to shops and beach. Just a really good well rounded place to stay. But the staff member who lives in the dorm slams that door all day every day!! Should have said something but didn't!.

We came into Santa Teresa without having anything booked :( We stopped at Zula for lunch and asked if they knew of any budget places. The owner mentioned Hostel7 which was right around the corner from Zula restaurant. We got a double private for $35/night which was simple, clean and in an isolated corner of the main building. I loved that because it allowed our room to be nice and quiet. The kitchen has two fridges which REALLY makes a difference. The yard is huge and has tonnes of hammocks and allows the ability to camp. Hot water showers as well!! The best part of Hostel7 though... Gingi actually goes around meeting everyone, encouraging everyone to hang out together and to meet everyone else staying in the hostel! I actually met so many great people and we wished we could have stayed longer. Every night Gingi invited people together to visit and that was the only time I have seen that in a hostel owner ever!

Room Tip: There is something for everyone's budget!

Just a very organized and friendly hostel. Reasonable price, good kitchen, nice yard, and Gingi's a rad guy. It was pretty clean, had everything a traveler could want, and felt secure. Also organized cheaper-than-usual surf lessons for us. Only downside was that sometimes the AC and/or internet wouldn't work, but I think it's cuz so many people are using them and Santa Teresa's a pretty remote place in Costa Rica. Also, if Gingi's not there, and he isn't always, there's not really anybody there to help you. Otherwise, totally perfect.

I came to Casa Di Gingi planning only to stay 3 nights but ended up there for a week. Gingi the owner became a friend during my stay. He's a great guy, very informative, and helpful with anything you may need during your stay. He went out of his way to show me property for sale in the area.

I had a private room, it was very clean and comfortable. Everyone staying at the hostel forms as a group. It makes for a great travel experience, meeting new friends, and making new memories.

I will definitely be returning to Casa Di Gingi!!
