    A nice chill hostel with a decent communal outdoor space. The employees there were cool - the owner was maybe a bit paranoid about a police raid (for masks in the back yard). Good location - a decent walk to the beach, and right near the main restaurant/bar area. Could use a working foot shower for when you get back from the beach.

    Facilities-wise, everything good 6/10. Ambience and people-wise, 10/10. Staff AMAZING, other travelers AMAZING In the midst of this COVID era, it felt like a home/oasis in a crazy world to meet other people still traveling, connecting, and living in love, not fear. I did my research for hostels in San Juan and selected this one based off the reviews I read and digested. I am so happy I did and highly recommend.

    Very Good

    Location is best part: 5 minute walk to beach in quiet, nice Ocean Park neighborhood, local but close to touristy condado. So many good restaurants in walking distance. Mostly Friendly staff, some aloof. Great courtyard. Party vibes. The main cons: really uncomfortable mattresses, and few electric plugs. We had two plugs for 6 beds. Only three plugs in commons areas that everyone was fighting for. My phone stayed at 25% entire time. Leave valuables at home. No grocery store close.

    This was my first experience at a Hostel and I must say it left a disguising taste in my mouth. The place is dirty, roach infected, and a complete disaster overall. The location was great but aside from that I’m appalled by the way the ACTUAL OWNER -, treated me. There were numerous arguments and altercations throughout my stay. I helped try to clean and organize as a well mannered citizen but this place needs lots of help. Even calling it a 2 star hotel is insulting.
