Welcome Home!

"Life Supports Life in Joy"

At Life for Life Hostel our intention is to hold and support you in the play, fun, rest, and deep relaxation that we believe humans beings need in order to connect deeply with ourselves and nature; and to live in community with the plants and the animals that we co-live with here on earth. We value living in respect and celebration of All Life, and we value and recognize the time and space needed to unwind and come home to this recognition of our shared existence, each in their own unique way. Our space, in this extraordinary environment, is an uncommon and remarkable container created with the intention to support you in exploring yourself and the OSA Peninsula in all of its glory. 


If you are a single, couple, or family looking to adventure and play in the abundance of life, and/or on the lookout for a budget-friendly self-created yoga or meditation retreat - or, if you are a group of any kind on the lookout for such things - this is a special energy and environment to do just that. We look forward to meeting you and living this beautiful life together while you are here!
