I stayed at la Terraza with two friends. We were told that the place was safe to stay at because a guard stayed there all night to watch the cars and the door. One night, we left our stuff in the living room and woke up to find 800$ gone, clothes gone, shoes gone. We alerted the staff right away.... More

We're sorry this guest had a bad experience while visiting San Juan del Sur. At La Terraza we feel that it is our responsibility to offer guests clean and safe accommodations. We also go above and beyond to ensure this. In this quaint community where crime is rising as tourism rises, we have taken every precaution to ensure the safety... More

This guest house is almost perfect. 3 rooms on each floor and we managed to be the only people there at the time. The living room area was a fantastic space and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking and storing food. The balcony was a favorite lounge spot for us. The terrace itself is not much, which is surprising... More

My friends and I stayed in two rooms with no a/c, and the fans and breeze were enough to be comfortable. If you require a/c, they do have that available in rooms at an additional fee. Location is good, almost everything within a block or two's walk. Any time we needed assistance, the owner and other assistants were very helpful.... More

We stayed here in the two twin bed room. Staff were very accommodating via email given our short notice. We arrived in the apartment to find a horrible smell coming from the kitchen. Luckily we were eating out and didn't use the living room or kitchen for much. The room was sweltering hot and the first night I barely got... More

Stayed here with my husband for several days this place cannot be beat! We checked out several other nearby locations and nothing compared in this price range! The conveniance of location walking distance to everything, clean and safe room, and amazing hammock on the porch was unbeatable. Staff was polite and helpful. Bed was a bit 'lop-sided' sinking a bit... More

We stayed in La Terraza hostel for 2 nights. The location is perfect, only 5 minutes by colectivo from Pisco and 10 minutes from Paracas. Room was very clean and cozy, hot shower and amazing breakfast with wide range of options. Manuel, the owner, is a great guy eager to help his guests with anything. He arranged the trip to... More

I highly recommend staying at La Terraza! very clean, great location, helpful and friendly staff and a nice kitchen to use. A friend of mine had recommended staying here from her previous stay, and I was so glad that I did. There is free water refills which is helpful and the hostel is just up the road from the food...

I love La Terraza! Not only does it have the best view - especially from the third floor balcony, but the management is great. They are always going above and beyond the call of duty to answer questions, help with booking excursions make sure your stay is comfortable. Great hammock on the balcony. Right in town with close access to... More

We really recommend this place! A very nice balcony with a hammock and great view. During our time there the room next to us had some problems with the toilet (leak). Although this affected us we got compensated for this in a very good way!

This is the best place ever. It feels like home. Everyone is friendly, the rooms are incredibly secure. There is a rooftop terrace to watch sunsets over the bay. Its affordable, private bathrooms, and an upscale shared living room/kitchen that three rooms share. Its incredible. Its beautiful, upscale, cool, private but social. We met some of the best people there.... More
