Property Description

Central America’s very own slice of heaven, a true palace right here in Nicaragua! From chilled vibes in the mid-week to the wildest of times on the weekends (sometimes mid-week as well)! Boasting the best sunset in town as we’re perched up on the hilltops over the beautiful town of San Juan Del Sur. In addition, we have two doggos (Puk and Lala) on-site who are super friendly and love to play.

We offer quality beds to rest the head and secure lockers to keep your stuff extra safe! With seven stylish 6 bed mixed dormitories, a 4-bed female dormitory, two private rooms, and last, but definitely not least the PARTY ROOM. The party room is a large 8-bed dorm which available by group rental only, part of the appeal of this room is that it is separate from the rest of the dorms and allows for the group to kick-on late into the night. There’s one hell of a party to be held with a full house!


PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS A PARTY HOSTEL AND WE LOVE TO BRING THE PARTY. We are located a bit above the town of San Juan on the hill in the party-hostel district. Although we welcome any and all types of guests, we ask all guests to understand that we have a reputation for providing a fun time and not necessarily a quiet time (expect loud music and late nights, especially on the weekend). The hostel boasts a large resort-style pool with the best views in town, not to mention the views of picture-perfect sunsets that we receive nightly here in San Juan del Sur! We have two bars on-site that will never leave you short of drink! For all of you travelers on a budget: WE ARE HOME OF THE $1 VODKA DRINKS!!!

For food, we offer:
- Daily Breakfast (Choice of eggs to order/gallo pinto/2 slices of toast OR 2 Pancakes. Only 4USD (132 Córdobas)).
- Family-style dinner (Sundays and Thursdays exempt) which changes nightly depending on the preference of guests/staff. HOME OF THE INFAMOUS MAMA´s MONDAY ROAST, this dish will really make you feel like you are back home again!!! Only 6USD (200 cordobas)
- We also have a small store on-site which offers snacks and goodies such as Instant noodles, chips, and oreos.
- In addition, we can always call in a food delivery from town for the times where food is not available at the hostel.

Shuttle Information:
With tasty meals and drinks right on site, no need to go anywhere! However, if you decide to explore the city below, you're a simple shuttle ride away from the beach, boutiques, and restaurants. We offer a free shuttle service to our guests from 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm, & 5pm every day, but Wednesday. (Shuttle is only available from 9am to 3pm on Sundays). In addition, there are plenty of Taxi services to/from the center of town (Taxis cost roughly 100-150 Cordobas (3-5 USD) on average). Shuttle pick-up/drop-off in town is located at EL Social.

Outside the parties, we offer a wide variety of activities and services to our guests:
- Surf shuttles, board/gear rentals, and Surf lesson packages from local surfers that know the beaches better than anyone around (daily availability of surf lessons is dependent upon weather/surf conditions)
- Shuttles to the Jesus statue for sunsets - Runs Mondays. *5 guest minimum for shuttle to run; will also run on other days of the week if enough guests are interested*

    The hostel is incredible, staff are friendly, funny, helpful and always available. If you have any issues they solve them immediately. It was so much cleaner and bigger than I thought it would be, everyone we met was so friendly. Hardcore to say the least. Furniture dancing, drinks flowing, tops off. - party in full swing.

    Puk Palace definitely is one to remember. After reading a few not so great reviews, I decided to find out for myself. Great staff, food was great and the beds do the trick after a big night on the sauce. I really made the most of my time here and found exactly what I was looking for, which was social travellers keen to have a crack. Great mix of nice and chilled during the day and everybody and at night everyone goes hard (the chicks are more animal than the blokes are). I extended 3 more night

    I booked into Puks because the Sunday Funday host hostel next door was full - but it turns out I was happy to sleep next door to the party. Staff were friendly and welcoming, always doing their best to create a fun atmosphere. Pool w slack line was super fun, view was amazing, pool table was a great addition. Breakfast was delicious, coffee was copious. We all had a key to the dorm which was nice. And of course, Puk was an amazing dog, maybe if you're lucky like me, he'll sleep in your bed.

    I’m so mixed about this place, because it is a beautiful property.Some of the people working were nice and approachable; but we never really knew who worked and who didn’t.The friendliest team was on our last day. Party hostels in my past have been upbeat-even during the day. This place was so nonchalant and complacent during our stay. It seemed like no one was happy. I hate saying that, because we loved the dogs,pool &DINNER! The pressure on the shower was great and perfect for sand removal
