My family and I stayed here for two nights before our Celebrity cruise. This was a great place to stay if you are looking for value. We had a nice room with a King bed, tv and refridge. The entire place was very clean and the bathrooms were spotless. We never had to wait for the shared bathrooms which was... More

All the good reviews are true. Request a 2 twin bedroom as they have TV, are larger and have access to both floors and both verandas. Warning - the elevator is old, quaint, very slow, and hot but it will get you and your luggage to the top. Also the entrance to the Hostel is not well marked. For very... More

No frills place but an amazing host. This is right next door to San Cristobel fort just when you are entering the old city of San Juan. Right above Cafe Berlin... just ring the door bell of the 6th floor and they will come down to open the grill door for you. The rooms are basic but no bath attached.... More

Not much to say that hasn't been said. I had made most of my own plans so didn't need much help from the staff - but they were very friendly and seemed willing to help. A few comments - as some have noted - the 5th and 6th floor are private rooms. All private rooms have a fridge. The 6th... More

Gorgeous location, overlooking a plaza, and easy to walk anywhere in Old San Juan. Common balconies offer a great view. We had a private room, which was secure, comfortable, and quiet. The room even had a small refrigerator, which was convenient. The bathroom is shared, but was very clean we seemed to be the only ones using it. The communal... More

This is probably one of the best hostel I have ever been to. It is clean, centrally located, the staff are friendly, it is very cheap. There are also plenty of things to do around the hostel. The neighborhood is great. The views from the terrace amazing! You can sit on the balconies and enjoy the breeze on a sunny... More

The room was immaculate, the other guests were really nice, and Virginia was full of helpful advice. And did I mention the location? Best place ever!

This was my second stay at Posada San Francisco, and I was happy to see it was the same clean, friendly, convenient, and safe lodging that it was on my previous visit. This visit, in addition to the usual couples and singles, there were families with children, but I think they were on the recently renovated 6th floor in the... More
