I was told about Casa de Olas through word of mouth of another traveller. She gave me the business card of the hostel, and I contacted them right away. As a result, I stayed at Casa de Olas twice at different times, and if I was to come back to Nicaragua, I would even go back a third time. Carla,... More

We stayed here for a superb 4 nights. Surfing by day and living it up by night. Casa del olas was just the perfect place to stay; a combination of fun energy at night and relaxed in the day. If your not up at the bar getting 'buffalo'ed there are plenty of hammocks and chairs to chill out in, all... More

Came here for four nights after being recommended it by friends and it was without a doubt the best hostel I've ever stayed in! For $11 for a dorm you get a great room and beautiful stone bathroom, free chef cooked breakfast and endless shuttles to the beach and town. The view of the sea from the hill is unforgettable...

The view: unbeatable! Simply stunning! The food: Is very good, not more expensive than the gringo places in town, and is usually eaten family style with most people at the hostel - the best part! It is a warm atmosphere, if a little loud because the music is blasting. And the breakfast is free and yummy! The rooms: clean and... More

I stayed here among many other hostels in Nicaragua, and this was my best experience. Fred and Carla (Owners) treat you like part of the family and are extremely helpful. Dinners are great, the staff, pool and facilities are amazing, and the rooms are very clean and inviting. Free shuttles available to San Juan every second hour make for lots... More

This place is amazing. We started our April Nicca trip in SJDS and pre-booked 2 nights here based on the reviews. After the first night we decided to keep our private room for another 3 nights. Fred, Carla, and the staff keep this place very clean and welcoming. The breakfast and dinners really make you feel part of the family,... More

Casa de Olas is an amazing gem in San Juan del Sur. A bit up the hill from town but easily accessible via a shuttle shared with the Naked Tiger or a 5 taxi, its a great mix of relaxation and fun socializing with the other guests. Plus it's super easy to go party at the Naked Tiger or in... More
