Pretty rough place. Posada is cheaper and much better


We booked a private room months in advance and the man working insisted there were none available upon our arrival (only dorm beds). Once I showed him a printed copy of our reservation, he reluctantly gave in and had a private room for us. The place was pretty deserted, so I suppose he didn't want to go through the trouble. The room itself was suitable for sleeping, but that's about it. Facilities are lackluster, though the location is decent. I'd recommend staying elsewhere.


Place is simple, it's only good to stay a couple nights.

The hostel was clean and we had everything we needed (towels). The guy working there was really nice and helpful. We couldn't get the wifi in our room. The atmosphere was really bad, do not expect to meet people in there, everyone is pretty isolated. Overall it was fine for 2 nights.


the manager speaks only Spanish. however he does is his best to explain everything to you as food as he can. the Kitchen is dirty and in usable in my opinion, but the rooms are super clean and air-conditioned. the beds are really comfortable as well. the location is perfect. Shower are a bit on the cooler side, but doable. this is a good place to stay if you're staying for a few nights.!!


Many reviewers complain that the guy running this hostel does not speak English, but hey... you're in Puerto Rico. You better learn some Spanish. It's a great hostel, cheap and clean. Great restaurants and bars nearby.
