Property Description

Local is Beautiful

We are in Santurce (San Juan Arts District; downtown area), not a traditional tourist hub like Condado, Old San Juan or Isla Verde (although with easy access to them). Managed by its owner/creator, a local born and raised fellow with passion, respect and understanding of cultures. For the active and independent traveler. A Hostelworld award winner; one of the 5Best hostels of the Caribbean by USA Today. On the other side of the highway from Condado.

Discover the local arts and culture district with restaurants, bars, museums, symphony hall, Conservatory of Music, Heath Care centers, Walmart, genuine Puerto Rican coffee shops, Food truck court, Metro station. Great bus service, much faster than the sporadic bus lines that go past the luxury hotels. Electronic newsletter (tailor made for our guests) available with info that will allow you to move as a local.

A comfortable hostel, (only16 beds) with emphasis on VALUE. Free Broadband Internet + one computer terminal; various spacious communal areas and rooms equipped with 24/7 high-speed air fans, electric sockets by bedsides, mosquito screens and repellent. Complementary fresh linens and towel (bath and beach). We are not a party but a good sleeping hostel.

No fancy decor and amenities you may not need or use. Two full washrooms with toiletry and hot water at showers 24/7. No charge for local coffee; pancake mix, syrup and tea. We provide the ingredients you create the feast. Outdoor terrace, full kitchen with stove, refrigerator and freezer, microwave, toaster, pots and utensil, extra large lockers, free (outgoing only) calls to Puerto Rico and to mainland USA. No hidden fees; price provided by Hostelworld is the Total one.

Latest Review

" easy to get to from the airport (T5 bus). definitely a backpacker kind of place with the laid-back and hippy vibe to it. Good for a couple nights, but not a romantic place to be alone. No queen or king beds either – you're going to find bunkbeds or dorms- a little misleading as we expected to find beds on the ground that we could push together at least. Turns out it was a pretty cramped room with bunkbeds that swayed back-and-forth when either person moved. Breakfast is DIY pancake mix. "
