    Gorgeous hostel. Probably the best value I've ever gotten at a hostel. Each bed in the non-A/C rooms have a fan in the middle and an individual bed-side fane. Excellent Wi-fi. Nice layout too. Free shuttles to town every day too.

    The Space has been one of my favorite places I’ve stayed in Nicaragua. The atmosphere is great. Everything is exactly as pictured the dorms are super clean as well as all other facilities. They don’t charge you extra for towels and the staff is super friendly and willing to help with anything (including ur Spanish:) they have included breakfast options which was super nice and delicious. Only thing they are missing is people. But they offer a free shuttle to SJDS where there is plenty of parties

    The most prestigious hostel I've ever been to! Looks like a hotel, but with a low hostel price! A bit far from town but very nice to chill, and has free shuttles daily. The staff was very helpful, especially Edelson who helped me with everything I needed!

    We had such a great time here. The food is good, the staff are amazing and the room was perfect. It is a bit far if you’re looking to spend a lot of time right in SJDS, but the location is perfect if you’d rather be on the beach! Such a nice chill vibe, definitely a bit more of a resort feel than the average hostel, which was perfect for us!

    Good atmosphere. Great food. Very nice hostel, lots of places to hang out outside. Dorms are pretty big and comfy, very clean with huge bathrooms and personal fans for each bed. Only downside is it is 15-20 min car ride to the town of san juan del sur. Need to take shuttle (free from hostel but not at all hours) or taxi.

    Overall a wonderful place - quiet, clean, beautiful. Great place if you work remotely, not so great if you want to do something other than chill. No one attends the events they hold. My biggest issue were these two old guys rented a private room and brought back three hookers, and they were all in the common area grinding and making the other guests uncomfortable and the staff didn’t do anything, they just kept serving them at the bar. Super uncool.

    The Space is very beautiful and definitely aims to be a notch up from other hostels. The food is also great. However, there’s are some practicalities that are yet to be ironed out (I think the place is still new) e.g. instead of having hammocks up, you have to request that they be hung up for you; the grass is unmown so there is nowhere to put a towel down after swimming without getting furniture wet; the small drinks tables all fall over in the wind. Also the dorms are very tiny.
