    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.

    We got “stranded here during the Corona Pandemic and couldn’t have landed in a better place. The host is doing everything she can to help in any way possible, incredible view and a huge terrace with giant pool. Sunsets are mind blowing every evening again. Note that the guest kitchen is closed from Friday to Tuesday and you can only buy food from the restaurant during that time - which is delicious but also quite pricey by Nicaraguan standards. Still 10/10 for everything else, thank you!

    I arrived at The Tiger start of March, was lucky enough to experience a couple of Sunday Fundays before Covid set in. So much crazy fun and great atmosphere. Amazingly for the backpackers The Naked Tiger stayed open for the long termers sticking it out. Felt like a big family, we cooked together, did trips to the beach together and helped keep some of the locals employed throughout the pandemic. The hostel was also involved in helping local families during the tough recent times. Amazing!!

    Naked tiger was amazing for me. The staff are super involving and friendly. The hostel is super clean and during the week was surprisingly relaxing! The weekend was an absolute blast and tiger provided an excellent party! Also plenty of options to leave the hostel to go down town or surfing via shuttle. Overall 10/10. So sad my trip was cut short by the corona virus!!!

    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!
