    Had a great stay here at casa santurce. Staff was great. It was clean and had a/c. Dinner every night at 8pm. Had bonfire at the beach. Organized bar and club outings. There’s a bar across the street to chill at. Not far at all from all the happenings in San Juan. Owner is super cool. Def recommend. Oh and Walmart is walking distance.

    Nice volunteers running the place. Free dinners nightly, and overall very clean. The location is ok, but the neighborhood is pretty grungy. An upstairs area for smoking would be most welcome. Great Value for the money.

    We really enjoyed this hostel! Everyone was super friendly and they do free family-style dinners every night which is a huge plus! There’s a bar right across the street and you can socialize and go out with people each night! It’s a short walk to the beach and La Placita. Would definitely recommend this hostel!

    Cool spot in a great location with an awesome staff! Had a great time during my four day stay here at Casa Santurce. The hostel is proximate to everything relevant in San Juan and about 10 min walking distance to the nearest beach. It is also conveniently located directly across a local bodega where you can grab a beer and shoot some pool. Good vibes all around - would stay here again.

    Positive was staff were helpful with our large suitcases when we were confronted by two flights of steps. But facilities are poor: no hot water, no shower head, powerpoints in the shower cubicle, a constant pond of water leaking from somewhere and a toilet we could only sit on side saddle because the ensuite was so narrow. Fan and air con in bedroom roaring like a jet engine! No hooks or surfaces. Too soft mattress. Accomm in SJ is pricey and I reccommend paying for something better than this.

    A new and developing hostel. Common space wasn't very friendly but they were working on it, staff didn't seem to knowledgeable about many things in the area.

    Not safe to walk around the area after dark, our car was broken into while parked 20 feet away from the hostel after an employee said it was “safer than parking on the main road”. Check in was brief, the guy showed us our room and that was it. No guidance on things to do, Hostel activities/plans, etc. That check-in was our only interaction with staff, there was no one at the desk for the rest of our stay, even when we were trying to check out. Place is under construction, electric saws at 8am.

    I’ve been to hostels over 40 countries and 45 U.S. states and this is by far the worst hostel! We sent several emails/calls over a 2 wk period about our late arrival and we got no response. Front desk is often unattended and staff ignores MANY phone calls when sitting a few feet away playing phone games. Our private room often didn’t have shower or sink water. When water worked, it was VERY low water pressure that was stop-go and ALWAYS cold water. Very flimsy bunk beds in very barren room......

    Very unclean: mold on pillows, stains on mattress pads (bed bugs?) fungus in shower, bathroom fixtures detaching from walls. The volunteer staff was unable to provide clean pillows and mattress pads when asked, the owner was unavailable. Random person walked into our fully reserved room of 10 bunks and proceeded to take a show in our dedicated bathroom. There is no control of who walks in and out, one a code for a door is known, anyone can access the room.
