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

Yajure was a great hostel. It felt a little exclusive to to the owner's friends, but everyone was super aloha and friendly. The owner, Chely, is by far one of the coolest people I've ever met. It's in a great location and the staff is very helpful to travelers. Come here if you like surfers, reggae and a good time.... More

We were lucky enough to find Yajure during our stay in San Juan Del Sur. We were immediately welcomed by the owner Chelly and felt right at home. The hostel is right on the beach and also has a pool for much needed relief in the hot weather in San Juan. The beautiful hostel was kept very clean and our... More

We really would not recommend this hostel to anybody... We were staying in the upstairs big dorm which at first seemed really great but as night time approached we realised that there is no light in the bathroom and showering in the dark is not fun. This didn't seem like the biggest issue but was inconvenient. We asked for towels,... More

At the beginning I really liked the hostel because it has a nice surrounding and is situated uptown just after the bridge. It has a common area with a pool, a bar and big tables outside. Upstairs is a flat screen TV and also a nice area. But the 10 bed dormitory downstairs is too crowded and really dark. So... More

It's a big gorgeous house with a palm tree garden overlooking the bay. Staying here makes you feel like you are sharing a luxury house with your friends. I spent 10 days here, chilling in the hammock, jumping into the pool, cooking delicious meals in the homey spacious kitchen, or lounging in one of the comfortable salon areas.. I felt... More

This hostel has been one of my favourite places to stay on my entire trip so far. Really nice place to chill out, right on the beach, free coffee, great staff, clean pool, huge shared kitchen, and weekends have a mild party atmosphere. Not far from town, but not the constant party scene of a lot of other, more well... More
