Myself and a group of friends stayed here this weekend for a few days. When we arrived our room (room 1) was covered with bed bugs. When we tried to explain to the staff they laughed at us and told us they were ants, which they clearly were not. We should have left there and then, however we were a... More

First of all, we have a very strict fumigation procedure to keep our hostel free of bed bugs. There are bed bugs mostly on the Island of Ometepe and... More

I liked that the hostel is right in the centre of San Juan, where you have the freedom to go where ever you want without waiting for the shuttle. The rooms were very clean, nice breakfasts, also great that you can arrange nearly everything there- be it surfing, turtle nest watching, or just shuttles to other beaches. Nice people too.... More

Well stocked kitchen, free breakfast, lockers, good location, helpful staff. Our private room was extremely hot with no mosquito net. But a cool group of people tend to stay here and the roof top bar is a nice, safe place to hang out at night. Did hear one guy vomiting really loudly in the bathroom in the middle of the... More
