Property Description

Central America’s very own slice of heaven, a true palace right here in Nicaragua! From chilled vibes to the the wildest of times! Boasting the best sunset in town as we’re perched up on the hilltops over viewing the beautiful town of San Juan Del Sur. Journey a little further for exciting activities such as zip-lining.

Taxi service from the center of town will be roughly (100-150 Cordobas) but we offer our very own shuttle service from 9am 11am 1pm 3pm 5pm & 7 pm every day but Sunday.

With tasty meals and drinks right on site, no need to go anywhere! But when it's time to explore the city below, you're a simple shuttle ride away from the beach, boutiques, and restaurants.

With an amazing infinity pool looking down over town it’s hard to beat! We have three bars on the premises that will never leave you short of drink! From our daily cocktails to a cold cerveza we will always have you sorted! A party resort for the budget travelers if you will!

We offer quality beds to rest the head and secure lockers to keep your stuff extra safe! With seven stylish 6 bed mixed dormitories, two female dormitories, one with four beds and the other with 6 beds, also two amazing private rooms. There’s one hell of a party to be held with a full house!

    Puks over Naked tiger any day. The staff made us feel like family. Don’t miss a surf lesson with Dennis, and a drink with Lucy & Mara. Left feeling like I had friends for life. [ever had the staff give you a wake up call for surfing after a couple too many beers? ITS THE BEST] - free shuttles & a sweet mama in the kitchen. Can’t beat the view. Leave your worries at the gate and climb in a hammock. Make sure to stay here!!

    The best party hostel I’ve stayed at. Day vibe is chilled, but at 6.30pm everyone sits down for a group dinner (great for solo travellers and food is 100) then the party begins.People come from other hostels just to party. Rooms are clean, showers are good. There’s a free shuttle down into town every 2 hours. Puk’s attracts a fun crowd, and Tim and all the staff (esp. Zac and Juana) are legends. Had such a good time I’m heading back for a second Sunday Funday to round off my trip in Nica!

    Best I've stayed at around the world, the sunset view is unbeatable! The pool is amazing, seriously big for a hostel. Such a good mix of party and chilled vibes! The team dinners really help you interact with fellow guests, the staff was amazing. Tim the owner really made me feel welcome as well as the other staff. Clean rooms, comfy beds, great food! Also I work online and the wifi here was great! Hands down book your stay there asap.

    Great place to stay for Sunday funday. Staff are all super friendly. Bathrooms are really nice and everything is surprisingly clean for a party hostel. Located quite far out of town, but theres regular free shuttles so not an issue. The lockers in the room aren't the best for keeping small stuff like passports/money safe.

    Dope hostel located on top of the hill looking out over San Juan. The hostel itself is almost like a mini resort, the staff and the vibes are some of the best around. Ideal location for sunday funday. Although you cannot cook here, they offer breakfast and dinner which is a little overpriced. But you have shuttles every 2 hours to town so it is no worries at all.

    Best base for sunday funday. We were all so happy to head back to Puks through the night. Staff (Will & Branden) were great the whole time. Thanks to Geoff for setting up to watch a movie for our monday recovery too! Food is a little pricey but with free shuttles into town there were no dramas. Thanks again!!

    Place itself was pretty with a great view, staff was pretty rude except for a guy with an ear full of piercings (can’t remember his name) and Kevin, no restauran to eat during the day and not much party vibes to enjoy their bar, they have shuttle services to bring you into the town during the day which make thins easier ! Toilets need a real improve and they should respect more when people are sleeping !! But anyways not bar at all ❤️ Sexiest staff ever tho 🤣

    mixed thoughts on this place! Great views, pool and base for Sunday funday but it needs some improvements to make it actually feel like a hostel and not like you are interrupting someone’s bender at a mates place. Staff were unreceptive when we checked in, none of the lockers worked in the room, breakfast was basic and expensive, wifi was ok. Info about the hostel like shuttle times/check in and out times, things to do in the area, taxis was difficult to find out.

    Puk's sits firmly in the "party hostel" bracket, which means it lacks a lot of amenities, and personality you get with many other hostels. Cleanliness is a major negative (especially the bathroom for the private double room to the rear which is revolting). If you're part of Sunday Funday, you will appreciate the spot being so close to Naked Tiger, but it's not ideal for those with little/no interest in having a big one or anyone looking for a quiet stay.
