Casa Oro was good. It was well priced and had nice private rooms. Comfortable bed, space, fans, (air con available), good bathroom. The kitchen and seating areas were good. Rooftop bar was great. Location great. Only downfall were the staff. The women working reception were clueless and very vague- about everything. I would still return though and suggest this hostel... More

I was walking around for a hostel, and this was the only one with a free bed. Luckily for me! Very beautiful and colorful, lots of cool places to hang out, free yoga twice a day and free breakfast in the morning that is actually eatable! If you are on a budget, this is the perfect place to stay.

We stayed in a dorm for three nights and felt really good here. Staff was actually very helpfull and attentive. They let me use the locker even after I checked out. Breakfasts are actually pretty good. Kitchenette is perfect, but you are cooking in front of everyone. Lots of places to chill. Great surfing academy in the house.

This is a walk in hostel, but we were lucky that when we arrived there was a room for three that suited us perfectly with a set of bunks and a large bed. We opted not to pay extra for the AC and just used the ceiling fan. The day we arrived the staff had organized a soccer game down... More

My partner and I decided to take a surf lesson with the crew out of Casa Oro. The guy that runs it was nice, and our instructor Donovan was excellent as well. He's an American teaching and practiced a precise technique along with safety. I was a bit nervous and his style put me at ease... Not to mention he's... More

I had a lovely stay at Casa Oro. It's really organised and we'll run with a great social atmosphere. The free breakfast is really good. They had just started doing yoga classes at the bar upstairs which was a lovely surprise. I also did the Olive Ridley turtle tour which I would definitely recommend!

Casa oro is perfect place to stay at san Juan. They have big dorm and private rooms. Hostel is located central just a few mins of walk from main city centre attractions. Staff working there is very helpful and friendly. There are shuttle service to beaches to surf. Highly recommend to any traveler. P.S. Breakfast there is great!

After spending a night in a different hostel, we checked tripadvisor for something cheaper and found this gem in the centre of San Juan Del Sur. The staff was very friendly, and the rooms were clean. Its a very social hostel with alot of travellers from different backgrounds. We really enjoyed our stay here and would most definitely recommend it... More

Make sure you get reservations in advance if you want to stay here for the weekend. If you don't have a reservation they won't guarantee you a bed on a day-by-day basis. Seemed like a good spot, but I only stayed one night because I wanted to make sure I had somewhere to stay the next night. Cool bar on... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a comment. We are happy to hear you liked Casa Oro and our Roof Top Bar. I believe there was a misunderstanding about our reservation policies. We are a walk-ins only hostel, so we don’t accept reservations. It can get full during the week-end but once you got a bed you can... More

Went down to SJDS to check out the party but wanted to stay somewhere less bumpin and this place was perfect. The dorms were clean, friendly staff and good free breakfast in the morning.
