I was amazed by the view on San Juan from the hammocks of the terrace. The tenant is absolutely charming and so helpful. I definitely recommend it for backpackers or couples passing by San Juan del Sur.

This place is incredible!! From the view of the town and ocean, to the super warm and friendly owner! You should absolutely stay here if you're looking for relaxation and some quiet time! It's located a little up a hill, offering a great view. Open, communal kitchen that is beautiful and free coffee in the morning! Plus the SHOWERS! Felt like bathing in a waterfall. AMAZING!

This is the second time I stayed(I liked it so much first time, I went back!). It is in a great location, safe short walk from everything. A really relaxed atmosphere. The view is just wonderful. Cold drinks available for a very reasonable price, and great free coffee in the mornings. The owner is super helpful. The rooms I stayed in were both very spacious, the most comfortable beds and pillows. It's bright and modern and incredibly clean. I can't recommend this hostel highly enough!
