We are a backpacking couple and longed for a nice, CLEAN place to stay with AC that was relatively affordable. This place is great. Clean bed sheets, comfy bed, clean showers, really great cool AC, wonderful owner. She provides coffee and biscuits in the morning on the patio for her guests, and has been very accommodating. Great location, too. A... More

It's a great deal if air conditioning is a must (as it sometimes is), and an even better deal with just the fan. The staff were very friendly and the coffee was nice. It is located far enough away from the bars/restaurants etc. that it wasn't too loud, but San Juan Del Sur is small enough that it's still within... More

After 2 nights at the horrible Encanto del Sur, we were desperate to find a hotel were we could actually sleep and was ourselves. Sounds pretty basic, but El Puerto delivered the goods - and then some. There is a nice public area with television, books and beverages available for purchase. Lots of power outlets, comfortable rooms, a safe and... More

Stayed here 3 nights and really appreciated the comfortable air conditioned room for under $30. The place is very clean and the room was well outfitted with a little table, a locking dresser, and a fan. There is fast wifi in the main building, and cheap water, beers and sodas for purchase. The major drawback, and this comes from it's... More

We turned up to San Juan without booking any accommodation. As we walked around, we we're starting to get a little disheartened - until we found El Puerto! It's tranquil and clean - and very comfortable! We loved our bright, airy room and the free coffee in the morning was greatly appreciated!

We stayed there three nights - it was really nice. The owner is really friendly and helpful. The double rooms all cost 25 Dollars. They are spacious and clean. Although the main road is just in front of the hotel it is really calm! I would recommend "El Puerto"!

We just walked in because other hostels were full and were positively surprised. The room was really clean and the owner always ready to help with english or spanish. The hostel is located on a side street so you don't have to worry about the noises in the center of San Juan Del Sur. It's a nice way to spend... More

Nice porch with big rocking chairs to watch the street action. Beds had foot boards- not good if your tall. Close to market and beach. Very helpful hosts. I would return. Great restaurants very close by. Cheap town to visit..
