Cabinas Calocita is one of the most amazing places I've stayed traveling Central America. The rooms are big and really clean, the mattresses comfy and the private bathrooms have warm water. The shared kitchen is a place you can easily hang around with people. The rental surfboards are one of the best rental boards that I ever had. You can... More

Great place to stay and very well priced for a budget traveler! It's tucked away from the main road, flanked with hammocks, provides a well-stocked kitchen and clean rooms. I was very impressed with the design and layout of the building. I hadn't seen such solid construction in any of the towns I passed through. The owner, Chris, looks after... More

My wife and I stayed there for a night this Jan. Would have stayed longer if we didnt already have plans to move one.

We walked down the main rode in search for a nice but not costly hostel to stay in. Chris was very friendly and offered us a private room with bathroom for cheaper than what the sign initially said. Room was very clean with new mattresses too. Hot water! Shared kitchen on premises and all in all its a very nice... More

Cabinas Calocita is great for travelers looking for a simple, clean and well kept accommodation. My daughter and I stayed there for just a week and we explored the local sufing spots (we had a car). Our room was cleaned regularly and the bathroom was immaculate. There is no A/C, but fans are provided and the WIFI works. It is... More

We came here for 2 days on a recommendation from another traveller, and we would definitely recommend. Catherine met us and gave us some really great tips. We aren't surfers, and she gave us so many alternative activities including sunset yoga which was a trip highlight for us. The rooms are a really good size, the bathrooms were lovely and... More

Stayed at calocita for 3 nights. My room was large with a fantastic bathroom including the loveliest (hot water) shower in Costa Rica. Kitchen and other facilities were spotless. Just set back from the main road which eliminates a bit of traffic noise. A stones throw from bars and restaurants as well as 5 min walk to the beach. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cabinas Calocita offers rooms with private bath and hot water. There are 5 double rooms, one triple room and one single room. We are a small quiet hotel which stands for quality even for the budget traveller. Modern, clean and comfortable beds are waiting for you here at Cabinas Calocita.Part of Cabinas Calocita is a nice common area and a well equipped shared kitchen. Precisely the shared kitchen is typical in Costa Rica for small hotels and the people love to be able to cook their own meals or just leave drinks in the fridge. The location couldn’t be better. Quiet and calm (secluded) but still central. Just 150m walking distance to the ocean and surf break, but still (50m) off the main road what helps you sleep better. And the grocery store is also just 100m away and several restaurants are in close walking distance. ... more   less

“Request a room on the second floor or further from the communal kitchen. There isn't a ton of communal space and people tend to gather in the kitchen. Many folks get up early to surf and because the windows are only screens, noise and cigarette smoke carries inside easily.”
