4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for 5 days about 2 weeks ago and had a wonderful experience. I was a bit put off by the initial reviews but a friend from Costa Rica greatly recommended it. Maybe my experience was better because Chely was not there my entire stay. My first night was a bit of a mess though with massive ants... More

I have just returned from 5 days at the Yajure Surf Hostel, which had been recommended by a friend, who had enjoyed his stay in the summer. The first suggestions that the experience might not be such a good one started to appear during the reservation process. It was a completely disorganised rigmarole, that took over nine days to complete,... More

The manger waited a week into my stay here before saying to me that I was being charged 20 a night as opposed to the 10 that the website claims. When I paid the $10 a night and explained why the manager would not listen, and when I tried to walk out he ripped my $100 backpack and literally threw... More

We stayed at the hostel which seemed like a good deal $10 a night. The rooms were clean and the owner seems nice enough. However when it came to pay the owner informed several of us that he was changing the price to $20 a night for holidays! This would be fine if we had been told in advance but... More

We spent five nights at this really relaxed surf hostel and had a great time. Yajure is the complete opposite of San Juan's party hostels like Naked Tiger or Pachamama. The owner is a down to earth ex-pro surfer that tries to foster a more relaxed atmosphere and fully succeeds in this endeavor. A the hostel has a huge kitchen,... More

I really enjoyed staying at Yajure. Everyone was friendly and more than willing to help with beach shuttles etc. Yajure is located close enough to everything in town to be convenient, but far enough away to be quiet.

Great hostel to stay in! Everyone who works there are great and extremely helpful! Go above and beyond what anyone would expect to make your stay enjoyable and help if its needed. Very laid back, clean, everything you need! Good people, good spot. Chely's a great host! Stayed one week on two occasions, highly recommend it to anyone in San... More

I would not recommend anyone to stay at Yajure....Chely is a drug addict and drunk. He goes into people's rooms and steals money out of their bags and then blames it on you. "Because you should of locked your bag" ...He will over charge you for beers and rum as well as add drinks to your tab that you did... More

This is a great place post Sunday Funday to relax and chill out. I stayed like 3 nights and didn't want to leave. Massive kitchen! Rooms aren't really spacious but you shouldn't be hanging out in there anyway!!! Theres massive common areas and I think its a goldmine of a place amongst the chaos and nightlife of San Juan. 24/7...
