    Only stayed a night before my flight out but staff was friendly, the amenities were good although only one shower I believe so it was waiting for that. Outside area was great and good vibes. The people there when I was there were great and we had good conversation which was a good end of the trip. Across from Walgreens open 24/7 and walking distance to so much. I'll stay again if I plan on exploring new San Juan more.

    We stayed in 4 hostels in San Juan during our trip, and this one was our favorite. Great location, and the dorm had a private kitchen which was nice. The staff and the guests were really cool, met people from around the world and had some nights we’ll never forget, recommend this hostel for sure.

    Good spot. Near the beach and a nice neighborhood. The facility is okay. They were doing construction work so perhaps it's improving. It's not the greatest hostel I've been to but it's more than acceptable. Out of 100 or so worldwide I would put this somewhere in the middle of not bad at all. It doesn't have much of a backpacker character but this is Puerto Rico and it's way better than almost any hostel in the states if that is helpful. Would recommend.
