    This was not a hip and happenin' hostel when I was here (like Posada), but it was nice and chill and calming. The dorm was good, facilities were great. Walmart and Walgreens not too far away. This is the place to be if you just wanna chill in a local neighbourhood. Now that I've been to Old San Juan once, I'll be staying here on future visits.
