Don jon's is wonderful. Great vibe. Great place. Great location. So glad to have found it here. I had to give it a low score only for value for money cause $20 for a shared dorm is steep. But it's peak season, so I guess that's what's up.


Don Jon's is a cool little lodge. Wife and I stayed 1 night in a private room, no A/C and it was pretty hot, the ceiling fan couldn't really keep up. Had no hot water at all, that was fine for the afternoon but for a morning shower not to good. The area is populated with surfers and we aren't really in that crowd, but if we were it would have been the spot to hang out. Don Jon was great and there are a number of little restaurants near by.


The place is nice. Jon is very helpful and relaxed. He will chill with the clients in the common area. The shower are cold/cool water. Some of the mattresses are better than others so make sure you test them out. It's very close to the beach (la lora) and the supermarket as well as a couple of restaurants. Playa Santa Teresa is quite far away. A car would be your best option of getting there.

Everything is really nice but maybe you'll feel more comfortable if you bring an extra fan.
