    We absolutely loved this hostel and would recommend it to anyone visiting SJDS looking for a beautiful relaxing place to stay. We had a comfortable king size bed and a nice bathroom. The room opened up to a beautiful terrace with hammocks and chairs overlooking the bay and the town. As soon as we arrived we extended our stay from 3 to 5 nights as we loved it so much. We were woken most mornings by neighbouring cockerels so maybe bring some earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

    We loved our stay here. The host couldn't have been more welcoming or giving of his time. Very beautiful view and because of the slight elevation from the town, it was much cooler- which made a big difference. Would highly recommend this place. The room and bed were very large, modern and the facilities clean. We appreciated having the use of a kitchen and small touches like a smoothie maker made it easier to be more self contained. Thanks for a great stay+the New Zealand music!

    Amazing view. Our private room and the hostel were both very clean. Awesome, super helpful host. We rented a motorbike from the host and had fun touring other beaches. As a heads up it is a short walk uphill to the hostel from the centre of town. San Juan and Nicaragua were both very safe, we arrived from CR and did the border crossing and taxied from the border.

    In a busy energetic city this was the perfect place to come back to for rest and hanging out. It's a 10 min walk to everything the city has to offer : beach, restaurants, bars, shops. Best view in the city, hamacs ans beers on the roof terrace. The host Baba was super welcoming, always had good recommendations and was happy to chat and hear about our days! Worth every $

    I enjoyed my stay here. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Everything about it was great except it was a bit loud a night. Not because of the party downtown which you could faintly here but because of dogs and roosters.
