Planed on staying over night, ended up spending over a week. The staff is fantastic! Fun, helpful,and always up for an awesome time! The place is clean, with an amazing view. Would go there again in a heartbeat if I could. If you go- I guarantee you won't regret it! Chai Ben David.

The Naked Tiger Hostel is truly a place unlike any other. The vibe is both Peaceful and Party. On the beginning of my visit I was greeted with a welcome Beer and a Beer Funnel i was pretty much sold. Next thing im in the pool with a pina colada and a group of new friends that turned into my... More

This place has so much potential but the fact that all bar one of the staff was a extremely rude and arrogant makes for a bad experience, being threatened to being evicted for trying to make your own drink in your dorm to save a little money, or having there hired security/ cop jump through your window and start kicking...

A bit of a pain to use the shuttle to go in and out of the hostel, but it's a fun fun ride. The best view in town for sure, the beds are comfy and the bathrooms are relatively clean. The staff I suppose I rotate quite a bit so no need to expand on that. Take the trips to... More

This is my third stay at the naked tiger and it only gets better I have to say I read the reviews before making my choice of coming here but decided to give it a try and already on my first stay I was amazed with the place.

San Juan Del Sur is a great place that draws many people in for Sunday Fun Day with Naked Tiger being one of the focal points. Yes the bar staff can be more drunk than the guests and yes the party games can get a little raucous and no you probably wont get much sleep but, if you want peace... More

Staff are horrible bar maybe two? They are welcoming and unfriendly. Reason why we left. One girl staff member who was meant to be working was lying on the couch saying, " took so much coke last night threw up everywhere, man I ain't working today " ... But they do nothing anyway. However, there were a couple of lovely... More

I knew this place was a party hostel. What I did not expect was that the party revolved around cocaine. The people who stay here AND the travelers who work here have a blatant, not subtle appreciation for coke. The staff is often hungover in the morning, don't be surprised to see someone with the shakes writing up your breakfast... More
