    You won't come across a better hostel than Hola Ola in San Juan. I came solo for a week and connected with so many amazing people it was a sad day when I had to leave. Each day they put on multiple different events for people to take part in and its a great way to do different things and meet the other individuals. Just a short walk into town, free nightly transport, and super clean facilities. When I return no doubt i'll be coming back to Hola Ola.

    A great hostel, with a chilled, friendly atmosphere. Horacio the owner and his staff go above and beyond to make guests feel welcome. The daily activities and family-style dinners are great, too :)

    Amazing hostel booked 4 nights probs stayed 2 weeks in total. I only left when they got full as just extended my stay every 3 days. Lovely staff, free shuttles in to town and a great communal chill out spot. I was also working and had my place in the corner. 4 people to a room is nice and each room has an en-suite. One thing which I really rate in hostels is ours of hooks to hang stuff makes your stay there cleaner and more organised. Loads of nice events I loved the sunset bbq at the beach

    I LOVE HOLA OLA!!!! This was my second time back to this hostel and, again, had an amazing time. It doesn’t look as fancy as maybe the Selinas hostels but you’ll find the best people and most friendly staff anywhere in San Juan. It really feels like you’re part of a little family. Annika, Hilca, Davey, and the rest of the staff are SO great. The beach trips are the best part and you’ll get to see the best parts of the Rivas area! THANK YOU AGAIN HOLA OLA!!!
