    It was my first time staying in Nicaragua. I’m from the United States. The staff was phenomenal. The atmosphere is very chill and relaxing. While in town we heard nothing but great feedback about our place. They shared the owner is very passionate about customer service and the environment. I learned he’s very respected within the community. It was within walking distance to beach and right downtown. I felt very safe and had a great time!

    Stayed two nights, think San Juan is a bit out of season as the hostel wasn’t so busy. The rooms are really nice - great having curtains for a bit of privacy and the locker spaces under the bed are ideal. The rest of the hostel is super cool, loved the paintings. Because it wasn’t too busy it did feel a little empty and because there’s no main common area it was a bit harder to meet people. Shuttles are a good addition and great location in centre of town

    Very Good

    Casa Oro was a nice enough hostel - clean and secure. The staff were polite, but didn’t really make much of an impression - my surf instructor Miguel was awesome and very welcoming. There is no kitchen here, which sucks! Especially when you’re in town and wanting to save a few bucks (dining out was pricey). I found the atmosphere to be pretty quiet and boring. I wasn’t looking to party, but staying in a hostel you hope to at least socialize with others and that was rare. It seemed empty.

    This isn't a hostel, it's a booking agency and a restaurant with some reasonably priced accommodation attached. The communal area is set up to sell food rather than meet people, there's no kitchen to prepare your own food, and there are zero hostel vibes. That being said, the 4 bed dorm was spacious and comfortable and the property is well located. If you're looking for a cheap hotel stay here, if you're looking for a hostel experience stay elsewhere

    Hostel is empty no atmosphere, rooms have aircon but they want double the price to turn them on, cant hang out in the common areas or eat breakfast without locals wandering threw trying to sell you usless stuff all the time, end up just going back up to your room..

    After 10 countries and nearly 100 hostels, this is the worst hostel experience I’ve had. - WiFi did not work 90% of my stay. - Staff was incredibly rude + lied extensively. - I booked an AC room due to a scooter injury. I had some deep cuts on my legs & arms. AC did not work and I had to walk to the lobby and back (3 floors) nearly 5 times before they moved my room. Receptionist was on Facebook while I was trying to get help. In the morning, management lied about the AC working and blamed me.
