    Charisma is a little paradise for any traveller. It is exactly how you imagine the Philippines to be! Private stretch of beach with great views of the sunset, a swimming pool, lovely staff and dining area, with a well kept pool table. The location is also excellent. Would definitely still recommend hiring a motorbike but it’s not essential. The dorm does gets pretty hot. We upgraded to a private room in the end. Lockers were provided but there was no way of locking the dorm room

    One of my favourite hostels in the Philippines. A pool, facing a beach, with a bar inbetween - what's not to like? Hammocks, decent food, and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Great place.

    We loved our stay, good location not far from San Juan and right on the beach. Really lovely pool and staff were so friendly and helpful. Spotlessly clean with good WiFi and filtered water available. Really quiet place a nice place to chill out. Was a nice break from crazy party hostels. Charisma isn’t a hostel it’s a beach resort with a dorm room so if you’re wanting to stay at a hostel it won’t be for you but we loved it here

    Lovely place with pool, bar and restaurant right on the beach. The staff are very friendly and there’s bike rental right outside. The only downside is that the dorm felt like they had a spare space and shoved some bunk beds in it. There’s not enough plug sockets and wires draping all over the place to plug fans in. There’s no air con and it’s extremely hot at night. There are lockers big enough to fit your backpack in (bring your own padlock).

    The only dorms on the beach in San Juan! Salt water pool is lovely but closes early at 8 pm. Beachfront view is spectacular with hammocks and sunset should not be missed! Lounge chairs on beach but some broken. WiFi is great in dorm but mediocre in common area. Restaurant is well-priced and food is hit and miss. Some towels and linens are old and shabby but dorm is clean and well maintained (fans only). Staff are very sweet but not highly knowledgeable about travel info. Best dorm in San Juan!

    When you arrive, you definitely understand why it's called Resort and not Hostel, this place has a pool and access to the beach, with hammocks and lounge chairs, mango shakes aplenty. Food here is also really good and facilities are great No hot showers, but why would you need one anyway. Great place to stay !

    This is a hotel with 1 dorm room. Right on the beach with hammocks to relax. I wish they took better care of the animals. They had a kitten that was clearly sick and don't even notice :( I had to tell the staff that he needed a vet and they seemed shocked when it was obviously sick.

    Everything was okay, but the rest of the resort seems to be pretty good. But the dorm hostel has no AC.
