Rooms are ok and I would recommend a air conditioned room with the summer heat. Breakfast included is very basic. Some staff are nice but others are terrible and rude. Asking politely to use the toilet soon after checkout is not allowed, ridiculous and rude, yes. I would look elsewhere for the night.

For what you pay I don't think there's a better bed in Leon. Good mix of people, not a complete party hostel with awful clientele like some of the other places in Leon. But there's plenty of cool people to meet and hang out with there so it's not completely quiet either.

The hostel itself looks nice and maintained. It is clean and you actually see the cleaning ladies during the day cleaning. The dorms are with bathroom and the beds have new mattresses! However, if you want to cook for yourself, you won't find much in the kitchen so it's a challenge and if you are a non-smoker, you mind smoking... More

I enjoyed Casa Oro so much when I stayed with friends that when I returned to San Juan by myself a few weeks later by myself I chose to stay here for almost an entire week. The hostel has clean, comfortable dorm beds, the staff are lovely and the free breakfast is varied and always delicious! To book activities like... More

It was fine. I had the room right by the street(#9) where literally I could hear the men outside breathing and yelling at 5am in the morning...every morning. It was pretty basic and common of other hostels. Set breakfast each day and it tasted good. TV worked well. Bed was fine. Laid in the hammocks upstairs and enjoyed that. I... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a comment on Trip advisor . We are sorry you were woken up by people yelling on the street. During the week end, there is a lot of party going on in town. We are not a party hostel but we cannot control what's happening outside,... Buildings in central America are... More

I stayed in San juan for about three weeks and spent most of my nights at casa oro. Its a real choice place right in the middle of town. They have reliable shuttles to the beaches and pretty sweet rooms at a good price. The free breakfasts are awesome, and all of the staff are epic. The roof top bar... More

Stayed at casa ora for over a week now and i have to say this place is fully sick mate. The rums are cheap, the chicas are hot, beers are cold, beds comfortable and cool. Ben runs a pretty tidy bar up on the rooftop with some banging bangers pumping all night long. Peace

Stayed a couple of nights at casa ora and was a great experience, mean breakfast and easy and regular shuttles out to the beaches. And geo is pretty cool. Cool bar on the roof with cheap rum all night, comfortable beds in the dorms for a reasonable price.

Stayed here on and off for about 2 weeks. One of the nicest hostels around. The free breakfast that changes daily is very good and excellent to be included in the $10 dorm price. The place is spotless, somebody is always cleaning something. There is a kitchen to cook your own food. Some of the cookers are a bit slow... More

I had the greatest experience during the my stay at Casa Oro. The staff and other guests were friendly. The hostel amenities are great and the house is beautiful. Once you are in the front door, it feels like being home. It is also very safe at night. The after 11 quiet rule was respected, and it was a relief... More
