Decent place to base yourself if on a surfing trip. Cheap, safe, and clean. Located in the centre of town. Surfboard hire and free shuttle to surf beaches. Good breakfast. Dinner served in rooftop bar.

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

I've spent over two years off and on in Central America and this hostel was amazing! The free breakfasts were delicious with breakfast burritos, French toast, pancakes, fresh fruit, tipica nica desayuno, and more. The rooms were always clean. There is a large staff that is always working on keeping the place well ran. The rooftop bar upstairs is a... More

My mates and I stayed at casa del oro for a week in mid July and it was so good that I came back for round 2 a week later after heading up to Leon. It's in the heart of San Juan del sur, friendly staff, comfortable hammocks, spacious dorm rooms, right next to the beach, shuttles running to different... More

My friend and I planned to stay in San Juan del Sur for just a few days and then we found Casa Oro. The dorms are clean, safe, spacious and surprisingly not too hot. For beginner surfers, this is the place to stay. Their surf shop provides board rentals and shuttles to the nearby beaches as well as are very... More

Didn't stay here but did the turtle tour as we were lucky enough to be here during a "big arrival". Whole experience was incredible and we got well over 2 hours of turtle viewing, including the whole process from emerging from the water to laying eggs and building nest to swimming off. Far, far better experience than we've just had... More

We happened upon Casa Oro upon arriving in SJDS and decided to give it a try. We're glad we did! We rented a private room, which was by far the best double room we booked at any hostel during our time in Nicaragua. It was clean and simple, with a nice shower in the private bath and a cable television... More

Chilled but fun atmosphere. Good value. Great location. Tasty breakfast. Some hostels can try and force the fun a bit, but here it flowed naturally. I met so many interesting travellers, especially at the infamous Sunday Funday. Make sure you get up early (9ish) to get your t-shirts!

I stayed here for two weeks and I really had a great time. Very nice people from the staff, very good service, great position and the best place to meet people and have fun. I really reccomend this place and I hope to have the possibility to go back soon.

This was a good place to hang out. Great computers and even better breakfast. New one every day. Good coffee and good company. In town, close to the beach and a shuttle that take you to the beach throughout the day. Good hammocks.
