Property Description

Hola Ola is a traveler-owned and traveler-inspired hostel located in the idyllic and booming beach town of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. At Hola Ola, we have the simple yet powerful mission of connecting great people with each other, great experiences, San Juan del Sur, and Nicaragua. We’re not simply a place to stay — the positive impact that a hostel can and should have on its guests is at the heart of everything we do.

We’re a spacious 44-bed, two house and two pool hostel with equal affinity for both beach barbecue parties and live music nights. Hola Ola’s balance between fun and tranquility makes it the ideal atmosphere for whatever you’re looking to do.

Hola Ola is located a breezy 10 minutes beach-walk from the heart of town — close enough that everything that San Juan has to offer is at your fingertips, yet far enough to escape the noise of the town if you’d like. At night, we provide free shuttles to and from town, so you never have to worry about the logistics.

    Great hostel on the outskirts of town means you get tranquillity with everything in walking distance. Facilities are good with 2 pools. Warm water showers only. You can always go party at the party hostels but much nicer to sleep here

    The best thing about the hostel was the staff! When I arrived at the hostel, everyone was super friendly and polite. They even asked me if I wanted to work there and be a part of the team. I felt very included from the minute I walked into the hostel, so kudos for creating such a amiable atmosphere! The only downside was the location: you have to walk by a crocodile pond to get into town from the hostel. It felt unsafe, specially late at night when walking alone and the path is not well-lit...

    Great hostel for the price, location and vibe! Unfortunately, I didn’t find the girl at the front desk super helpful at our arrival. She didn’t really know how to get to places around town and couldn’t answer some of our questions. We were also staying in an AC room, with the AC directly on my feet on the top bunk bed. I had to sleep with a sweater, pants and socks while everyone else in the room was hot. The hostel in itself is super clean, but the washroom in our room was very dirty.

    The staff are completely useless, they were all hungover and grumpy and didn’t know anything about the town, or even which way to hike up to the Christ statue! The location made walking home after dark intimidating and our room was tiny with 4 people, very basic and ridiculously hot They also really pushed the sunset party they do on you which is in competition with Sunday funday and made us feel bad/ lame for not going
