    Waking up to the breathtaking views at the Naked Tiger is something I will never forget. The host, Megan, was awesome! She is always going above and beyond for her guests. The sunsets in Nicaragua are hands the best sunsets I have ever seen and the Naked Tiger is one of the absolute best places to experience them. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for me. Close enough to town if I needed to get things but also far enough away to enjoy some much needed R&R.

    We stayed at the amazing Naked Tiger for the weekend recently. Had the most incredible time! The best staff, clean rooms, views are insane and good vibes all day. Megan went above and beyond and brought us fresh fruit and fish from the local markets. Town is super cute, slow with everything going on. We found that really nice! Still lots to do, great surf, awesome Techno parties in town. All around we had the most incredible time and highly recommend. Thank you Naked Tiger. Will be back soon x

    Esse hostel é um lugar incrível! Super limpo, o staff é atencioso e muito disposto a ajudar. A dona é fantástica e me levou para dar um rolê nos melhores picos da cidade, me indicou os lugares imperdíveis para visitar e curtir a cidade. Foi uma experiência sensacional mesmo durante a pandemia. Recomendo demais! Tenho um carinho extremo por esse lugar!

    We couldn't have asked for a better stay at the Naked Tiger! Traveling in the times of COVID is not easy, but Megan and her crew put us right at ease. The hospitality shown to me and my boyfriend was unparalleled. The rooms were super clean, Megan took us to the market to get supplies, let us put on our own music and watch that beautiful sunset from the best spot in all of SJDS. We will definitely be back!

    I stayed at naked tiger recently with my friends and it was really amazing. We were aware that covid has changed everything, so there wasn’t a big party at the hostel. Just a few of us that wanted to take a break. Everything was vey clean and Megan took us to get food and to the fish market 😊 Town is nice and there are a few activities happening every night. We really had an amazing time!

    I can't speak highly enough of this place. Sure the views are sick and the photos from past travelers are cool but you cannot put a price on the hospitality shown by Megan. In true Canadian form she contacted us a coupla days before our stay to let us know that there wasn't much happening due to covid. When we arrived she picked us up, showed us the town, showed us the place to buy booze. Next day took me to the beach to go surfing and had a beer on the beach.

    Had been a guest at the Tiger before COVID19 happened, and much enjoyed the party and staffs’ enthusiasm to have fun. The hostel never closed when borders closed. A dozen of us stayed at the Tiger (me for 3 months). In addition to safe atmosphere, Tiger always stayed extremely clean, we had family dinners and options to get rides to town, as well as grocery and beach trips. Thank you so much for providing a comfortable home for a solo traveler during times like this. Will come back xx

    A fantastic hostel with a glorious view of town and ocean. I've been staying in Nicaragua during the pandemic and I came to San Juan looking for a safe and social place to stay and I was impressed with Naked Tiger's hospitality. Everyone there was fun and friendly, at the same time it's a big enough villa so I could enjoy my own space or have a dip in the lush pool to cool off during the hot days. Overall 10/10 and I'd recommend as first choice place to anyone visiting San Juan! Many thanks.

    The tigers a place that'll keep you coming back, if you ever leave. Amazing views, always clean and the perfect place to enjoy San Juan. Such a comfy environment full of all the best people, I was fortunate enough to stay before/during the borders all closing and even without the constant flow of travellers the tiger never lost its magic. Awesome kitchen and constant shuttles to get you in and out of town. Dont miss out!
