I stayed here with my sister in a private room (with shared bathrooms). The two girls I encountered working were nothing but helpful and nice - one called a cab for us to leave to go to the airport. This is not the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at but the location for the price cannot be beat! It... More

Spent 5 of my 9 nights in Puerto Rico here. Owners and staff helpful and courteous. The girl at the front desk was so nice-- she helped us practice our very rusty Spanish. (But everyone speaks perfect English at the hostel and, so it seems, in Old San Juan in general, so no need to speak Spanish to stay here).... More

My boyfriend and I spend 3 nights of our 10 day vacation here. The location alone is worth the price as its located overlooking the center of Old San Juan. For travelers who spend more time exploring than sitting in the hotel this is the place for you. You get the basics; clean sheets, clean floor, AC unit, and a... More

I usually don't stay at hostels but I'd stay here again. If you want to explore old San Juan, this is really the perfect location- right by the square and walking distance to everything. My fiance and I stayed in a private room and it was very simple but had a TV (nice to be able to catch some of... More

I stayed here for 4 nights while I was in San Juan and had a great time. The hostel is close to the "main strip" in Old San Juan and just a few steps away from El Morro. The hostel environment was very quiet and relaxing. It had a great balcony on the 4th floor and the views were absolutely... More

The location of this hostel is great, but there is a lot of work to be done at this hostel namely the women's dorm on the 4th Fl. The tile on the floors were missing, mismatched and dirty. The bathroom was disgusting, holes in the wall and the showers were gross. The Fridge smelled.This place has so much potential it... More

My boyfriend and I stayed three nights in a private double room. For the price of this hostel it is absolutely fantastic. We stayed on the the 5th floor and had an amazing view of the fort and the plaza. It is hard to find, because there is no sign, but it is right next to the Food Court Bar,... More

My fiancee and I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights during a stay in San Juan. We booked a private double bed room and were very pleased. The room was clean with a television, air conditioning, and closet. Bathrooms were shared and in the hall. We never had a wait to use a bathroom or shower and found that... More

My friend and I stayed here for a total of five nights, four of those nights in a private room on the fourth floor, and one in a four bed dorm. Both experiences were good. The private room had strong A/C and a mini fridge. Everything was very clean and the staff were all helpful and friendly. My friend and... More
