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"!

If you are a machine or something without feeling and you want just to check in and out. This is for you. If you want have a good service or have some owner to talk sanity this is not. Me and my couple were there for 1 day last weekend, we enter the room at 6pm. The other day we... More

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..

Very minimal room. Very clean and safe location. It's not a five star hotel: no hot water, no room service, etc. We paid $20.00 a night and got a clean room. Great coffee in the morning with cookies. Close to the beach and restaurants. We love finding this type of hotel. Hotel owners are helpful and friendly. Would absolute recommend... More

We loved it here. It felt safe (always someone there), was close to town, surfshops and beach without being noisy. The landlady spoke English, Spanish, German and French and was very helpful. Price for a dubble (20 $) was excellent value, we ended up staying for a month. They also offered supercheap laundry service.

After spending a night in another awful hostel, we found this gem and couldn't have been happier! The place was spotless, with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. For $10/person it's a steal and there is a/c for an additional price. The owner was friendly and helpful, and she herself checked who was coming and going no matter what the hour.... More

On arrival, we were struggling to find any decent private room for a reasonable price, even in low season, when we were pointed here. Excellent value for money. Clean but basic rooms, with AC for an extra cost if those tropical nights get too much to cope with. No tv or fridge (although hotel was happy to put stuff in... More

This is an inexpensive hotel not a B&B. In the morning they offer coffee and some store bought packaged cookies. Room was clean, simple and cheap. Location is good. However customer service was nonexistant to dismal. The owner and her partner were totally not there in terms of service to guests - not that I was expecting much for $20... More
