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...

First of all the owner Chely is super friendly and helpful, as well as all of the staff here. This hostel has everything you could ask for, and runs at $10/night for a dorm room which are clean and have A/C running from 10-7 ! The dorm we have has an ensuite and someone comes and mops and tidies every... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. The hostel is in a beautiful house and the location is great - just on the beach and slightly out of the crazy town of SJDS. The hostel was pretty much empty when we were there so we had the place and the pool to ourselves. There is a lovely... More

we stayed there for three nights in a 6 bed dorm ensuite. beds were clean and a/c worked too. Breakfast included, toast, jam and coffee. The hostel is quite big and has a big kitchen and chill area. Its great for meeting new people. The owner was friendly as well! In the garden there is a great pool and hammocks.... More

We stayed at Yajure for 4 nights, great location on the beach, close to downtown. Social hostel with enough room to get away and relax. Air conditioned rooms were a huge plus! We took surf lessons and couldn't be happier.

People who say that this is the best hostel in the world or that they've ever stayed in clearly haven't been to many hostels or are friends of the owner. The owner is aggressive and drunk/high, he doesn't seem to have a room in the hostel so when he feels like going to bed he kicks everyone out of the... More

A great place to stay but Chelly, the owner, messed up our booking, as he also did for several other people that we spoke to. He was pretty rude and argumentative about this when we arrived. Half of our party had to stay somewhere else. Might help if Chelly sobered up once in a while so he could actually remember... More

My boyfriend and I were only in SJDS for a couple of days. The first night we spent at one of the popular party hostels and hated it. Walking along the beach we spotted Yajure and spontaneously decided to check out of our hostel and spend the rest of our stay in Yajure. It was fantastic. The owner Chelly is... More

Overall the hostel is not bad- cheap prices and fun travelers to converse with. Unfortunately, I had $150 stolen from my backpack one day while I was in the hostel, and two of my other friends had money taken from them as well. If you are going to stay here, make sure to bring locks to put your valuables in,... More
