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

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

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
