    Great place to sleep. New looking, clean beds that are spread apart so you’re not all squeezed together. Each dorm had a key pad lock as did the main entrance. The air conditioning got COLD at night would be my only gripe. Everyone was super friendly and I’d stay here again.

    Surf Hostel is a cool place but needs to do to some general investing. Namely in stronger internet speeds, additional outlets for charging devices, better lighting, a real coffee pot lol and just those things alone would really help this place out.

    Only three bathrooms for entire hostel and 2 showers. Good security and nice workers. Close to beach. Far from Old San Juan.

    Close to the airport. It's a basic hostel,no frills. Runnin water was out for a few days (common in PR). Some of the rooms/sleeping spaces share a wall with the bar next door, be advised. The space is actually what used to be a pizza parlor.I did call in advance, twice, to make sure that my flight arriving at 1 AM would not be a problem, yet there still was. Reduced rate was agreed on and Mike the manager spoke to me the next day and was very apologetic and offered surf lessons as consolation.

    It's a place to stay - no lockers, definitely a work in progress. You get what you pay for. Everyone I interacted with was lovely, but the facilities left a good bit to be desired and things were pretty disorganized. It was the other people staying there that really made this place. The free surf lesson was nice!

    There is no signs to the entrance, near impossible to find, I walked up and down the street several times. When I finally found it, the person at the check in desk had NO idea what they were doing, even with my confirmation number she still couldn't find my reservation. I was told there was no rooms. After several minutes she found my name in a notebook. Extremely unorganized way to handle reservations, in this day and age of technology. Other guests had the same experience. Put up signs.

    The staff were really accommodating & you can tell they were trying their best, But the facilities were extremely sub par. Firstly they don't have lockers available, so there's no way to lock up your valuables. the only fridge you have access to, is stuffed to the brim with what looked like old food from travellers who have come & gone. you can't flush toilet paper, so each bathroom cubicle has an overflowing bin with tissues soaked in human waste. the bunk beds were unsafe & rickety

    One of the worst hostels I have ever stayed at and I've stayed at a lot. Slept under my towel because they didn't give me a blanket. Also, in the morning I wandered into the "wrong" area (there was no sign) because usually hostels have areas in them that aren't always obvious. The room don't have numbers on the doors either so finding your room at night after too many beers is an issue. The dude who there with his shirt off and generally looking angry is. Pretty lame and in a terrible location.

    Horrible staff. Staff were absolutely terrible to me. I stayed one night. Asked for a refund and was not given it. The place was dirty and lots of drugs were there. I would never recommend the surf hostel to anyone.

    They overbooked because they list the hostel on three different sites without cross-referencing so they left me out to dry.
