    Incredible hostel with a free shuttle to / from the city center 3x a day! The amenities were amazing and the staff super kind and helpful. I kept annoying them via WhatsApp and they were so kind and quick to reply. Food was amazing too. Would highly, highly recommend it!! 💖

    amazing place! location is great - in the forest but also only a 7 min taxi ride from town. we were staying in central san juan beforehand but actually preferred staying here. the hostel is really nicely designed with a lot of attention to detail. the infinity pools are lovely, the dorms are really nice (clean, nice beds with a fan, plug socket and light, we also had a bathroom and AC), the food is tasty, the restaurant was open all day and breakfast was included. really relaxing place - surrounded by natur

    Nice, fancy, well designed Hostel with very clean rooms and a nice area to hang out. It is nice located outside of San Juan, calm and in the forest, shuttles run for free three times a day to town. Nice Yoga place and outdoor gym. Food is overpriced from 7-13$. But breakfast is included and good. I can definitely recommend the place if you are looking for a calm place to stay in San Juan.

    Great place! Lovely owners, very caring smiling staff. Made friends within 5 minutes, good for socializing and relaxing. Easy to get to town where the party is at but when you had enough it is really nice to come to an oasis of relaxation, good food and lovely atmosphere. Many guests told me this was the best hostel they stayed in in Nicaragua.

    Very Good

    Good point : best looking and clean hostel, good space to sociolize but also to work. A lot of game and very good service. The food from the restaurant was good and a lot of choice even if their was not kitchen. Wifi perfect. Bad point : A LOT of bugs, more than any hostel i've been in the area, it was not pleasant, no real curtain so no privacy in the room and nobody told us. Breakfast include should have more options, because after 7 days we were tired of always eating the same thing.

    A really modern, clean and sophisticated hostel. However it’s location (a 50 minute walk from San Juan and a 50 min walk to the nearest beach) let’s it down- this wouldn’t be that bad if their shuttles ran more often but there are only 3 a day (11,3 and 5). The lack of kitchen also makes it difficult for budget backpackers. Would also recommend staying in the AC dorm because The dorm without AC was unbearably hot.

    It was a nice clean hostel but very far away from town, shuttles rarely run and none of the advertised programmes seemed to be available (yoga etc). Food is overpriced and you can’t do laundry.

    Stayed on Sunday for one night, and was only told once we had paid that the space would be the 6-9pm venue for Sunday Funday. We booked here as it a self described 'Relaxed, rustic hostel' and this isn't at all what we got, instead we had 100+ people turning up and ridiculously loud music. We were also told we could not use our tab and it was cash only from 6-9, and we only brought card as it is advertised as accepted. This meant we could not get any food or drink during this time.
