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 30-bed 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.

    Stayed here for 4 nights over new years and had an amazing time. Wonderful place and location easy to walk to beach/town. Rooms were clean with nice bathroom. Best part of the stay were the hosts. Horacio and his staff were most welcoming and very accommodating. There is a “family” feel to this hostel and they were able to include everyone on daily activities and meals. If you are looking to meeting great people and stay at a fantastic location Hola Ola is for you. Shout out to Ainhoa!

    Hola Ola is a fun and inclusive hostel. It is not in the main part of town but a ten minute walk over the beach. The atmosphere of the hostel was great and Horacio organized trips to the beaches & had different events running at the hostel each night. Everyone who works there are lovely and a big shoutout to Clare and Lottie for making the last few days of our stay there amazing. Each day there was a different breakfast for $2. Would 100% stay there again.
