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.

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...

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 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
