I´ve been to Nicaragua around 3 times, mostly to San Juan del Sur, and this is my favorite hostel. The environment is cool and fun, it has a bar, it is really easy to make friends. I have stayed in dorms as well as private and the rooms are nice and clean. What I love the most is the cool... More

Got there with no reservations which confused the desk guy, at first. Quickly remedied, we got a private room, no problem. Ended up having to leave real early one morning, so they took care of us the night before and got to keep the room until needed. For those that don't understand what a party hostel is, this is a...

We stayed 6 nights at Pachamama's and had the best time. They have 2 locations about a block apart. We stayed at the quieter 'Annex' location in a private room and it was perfect. The main hostel has the bar and is where the party is happening so being able to get away from that was nice. The staff are... More

This was one of my favourite hostels I've stayed in. There is a real chill vibe but you can all out party too. The hostel is located in the town which is great, you get half price Sunday Funday tickets, staff are great craic, offer surf lessons, bar too much to list. Free pancake breakfast. Was only going to stay... More

Nice play to stay for only a couple of days ! Parting all weekend was good, rooms with lots of bugs wasen't good, the stuff only speak english that's bad when you're in a spanish speaking country. San Juan is a nice place !

Went to pachamama with my girlfriend to party for a few nights. We got a private room with aircon and bathroom. The aircon would beep randomly when turned on and when turned off. It was like an alarm which could be heard from outside the hostel. Also the aircon would fountain water out of it when being turned on. There... More

The hostel is in a very good location and the building itself is nice enough, but I cannot put into words how disappointed I was with the service and employees. I was visiting in September when a tsunami warning caused the town to be evacuated. However, the hostel staff did not warn us staying at the hostel, before they evacuated... More
