    Good place 5seconds from the beach. Good value for money and neat everything. It's calm. A lot of families and kids aswell. Not a party place but close to the party. I would stay here again.

    Simple. Basic. I felt like I was at home after staying there for a week the staff is very friendly and I had everything I needed. You can’t beat the location and the view for the price. I recommend staying here if you’re on a budget with great views and close to everything.

    Stayed here (solo traveler) & loved my stay! San Juan Del Sur is a ghost town right now because of all the political stuff going on in the country. However, San Juan is VERY safe both day and night! Perfect for anyone who wants to come chill by the beach, surf or learn Spanish. The hostel is in the perfect location, near the beach and bars. Breakfast is great and staff is super nice! Only a couple of other people in the hostel, but that’s why I encourage everyone to come. Things are safe here!

    The location of this hostel is perfect. Right across from the beach and beautiful sunsets and close to all restaurants and bars in town. The breakfast looked delicious (I didn't eat any). I'm not sure how the dorm rooms were, we stayed in a private room. No air-conditioning (not surprising for Nicaragua), but the ceiling fan worked well and the room never got direct sunlight (thank goodness). Overall a great home base in San Juan!

    We got a family room for a group of us so it was good value for money. It’s a good hostel but there’s no insulation in the tin roof so you are basically in a hot box and not enough fans, so sleeping is pretty hard. Free breakfast is good but a suggestion of some salsa and it would be great.

    Our bed in our private room was directly under a window where a local man kept walking by and yelling loudly throughout the night. I didn’t feel very safe in this hostel. The beds were comfortable and everything worked well but the safety thing was large for me

    Overall reasonable hostel, good breakfast! Stayed in the dorm and it was incredibly hot and crowded, some beds didn’t have fans. Wifi wasn’t fantastic but it worked. The place was in a good location, although the rooms were always open and anyone could enter. Someone stole my headphones during the stay.

    Dorm room had decent fans and lockers, beds were comfy. Bathroom had two showers and toilets that were reasonably clean. Staff were not super welcoming. Biggest problem for me was security, I could have walked in straight from the street and into a dorm where everyone's gear was lying around. Also the free breakfast was pretty bad, just an egg with beans and rice. But the coffee was awesome, free refills until the container was empty.
