“A home from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

If you don´t have any family at Costa Rica, stay at Sitting Bull and you have one:)
Great and fun stuff that make your stay to a nice memory.
As a surfer the hostel have a perfect spot, a surfshop to your right and the waves just across the street. Spend the evening just hanging out with the crew and the other travelers, playing with devil sticks, have a beer and just chill out. The rooms have nice space, good AC, clean and comfi beds.

You will not be disappointed!

Had the best days here staying at the Sitting Bull Hostel! We were 3 girls sharing a spacious room with even a kitchen and a nice balcony. The owners and the staff are amazing, service minded and totally " a cachete"! The location is not bad either, just a short walk from one of the most beautiful beaches. And close to supermarkets and the area with ATM's etc.
Warmly recommending Sitting Bull Hostel to other travellers! Love from Sweden and of course...PURA VIDA!

Room Tip: If you are 2-4 persons, the room with a double bed and a bunkbed is a perfect choice.

Had the very great experience of stumbling upon Sitting Bull through a friend and was pleasantly surprised. Not only is the place gorgeous, clean and very centrally located it staffs some of the most incredible people. From the very moment we arrived to even after we left we were treated as friends and felt so comfortable, like a home away from home. Sitting Bull is no doubt the cleanest hostel I have ever seen in all of my travels, but equally as fun as any hostel environment - if not more! We had so much fun with the new friends we made there that instead of frequenting the local haunts during the weekend we opted to chill in SB with the staff and other travelers. Was a "cachete"!! :)

I highly recommend Sitting Bull to you - solo travelers, families, couples, etc. You will not be disappointed. The only thing I regret is having only stayed 2 nights. I could stay in Sitting Bull forever! Will be back soon for sure.

Pura Vida!

Room Tip: Room #202 was amazing! It had a sick balcony overlooking the street and everything, but from what I...

This was by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Not because of the super clean environment, chill atmosphere, and free daily breakfast /coffee. The staff is what makes Sitting Bull truly unique. It also dosent hurt that it is located across the road from the beach. I would recommend this hostel the anyone looking to visit Santa Teresa.

I couldn't have asked for more! Even with the clean rooms, AC, professional business, and chill atmosphere, the incredible staff is what makes the stay here so special. Amazingly helpful, fun, inspiring, laid back, and down to earth. I have no reservations about recommending this place!

The hostel is GREAT and cool, you have everything you need, comfortable bed, AC, internet, breakfast, and the best part super close the waves and really cool people working at Sitting Bull.
They are content to help you in anything you need, hung out with you and resolve any problem or doubt you might have .... is super good located, next to a super market so you can cook there and they have everything you need to do it. Is close to farmacy, ATM, bars, restaurants and SURF!...i cant wait to come back guys!!!
