I only intended to stay a few nights but I was there for a week. Sunday fun day is a must. Everyone that works there makes a real effort to know and include everyone and Megan the young Canadian owner also knows everyone and is AMAZING! You will have fun!

Hands down, after 28 countries, the best hostel I haver ever stayed at. Nearly a month after leaving I continue to run into travellers from all corners of the world who have stayed there at one time or another and immediately we know we are going to get along well. Sure - it's a party hostel. But it's actually way... More

I spent 2 weeks at the naked tiger while traveling solo. Best. Decision. Ever! Very affordable, the staff are amazing and I met some most rad people here! It was hard to leave... If your down to party and want to have the time of your life, stay here, you will not regret it!

Chill dogs. Good times. The owner is super nice and everyone makes you feel at home. I even managed to get some decent sleep some nights. I'd bring earplugs if you don't like loud music though. I'd definitely go back there for sure. Get amongst it!

What can I say the place is paradise. The best party In San Juan. Special mentions go to the amazing staff not afraid to dress up and get amongst it. Always there to help and have a laugh. Special mentions go to Mark for his amazing haircuts and giving me a reason to wake up in the morning.

such a nice house on top of a hill converted into a wonderful and social hostel! The best place to stay in San Juan if you want to make friends and have a good time. Yummy food and decent priced drinks will keep you sustained while enjoy an amazing view and pool.

By far the best hostel I've stayed in, the view overlooking San Juan is worth the trip alone, and the staff and atmosphere will definitely keep you from leaving. I stayed over the Christmas holidays and it was a great place to get loose every night and meet lots of travellers. Sunday funday dress up pool parties were so epic,... More

This hostel keeps me coming back to San Juan del Sur. The view is absolutely beautiful; nowhere else will you so little for a perfect view of the bay. The hostel attracts an awesome array of guests from around the world, making it easy for the solo traveller to make quick friends. The bar staff is friendly and accommodating, always... More
