We got robbed our cameras, mobile phone and money in our room while we were sleeping which is crazy. The door was locked and it was inexplicaple how somebody could enter the room unless he or she had a key. As if this was not already enough, the very unfriendly lady who runs the hotel eventually accused us of having... More

We heard about this place from some people we met at a bar. A room for 2 is 24 dollars. That does come with free breakfast. The rooms are small, they only have twin beds. Their is no discount for more people, need 4 beds it will be $48. The good thing is it is located right across the street... More

After reading the lonely plannet we decided to go for hotel Estrella. Since the one year old review the prizes had increased from 8-10$ to 25$. It's located central and has lovely balconies. BUT the service level was the worst ever. It didn't seem like The woman who was in charge had any interest in having guests. The only thing... More

A group of friends and I were in a tight spot while in San Juan, as our first hostel we were going to stay at had bed bugs, we were without a room pretty late at night. Luckily the owners of Hotel Estrella were still up and willing to let us stay. They got us all settled pretty quickly and... More

I stayed in Hotel Estrella for four nights and had the most brilliant stay. The family who run the hotel are all lovely and friendly and great for giving advice. Our room was clean with lovely crisp white walls and wooden floorboards and we had a balcony looking straight out over the beautiful beach. The building is beautiful in general... More

Definitely recommend this hotel for a quiet, clean and comfortable stay in San Juan del Sur. For $24 we had a double room with a balcony and views of the beach. Breakfast is also included. Not huge but a good size especially when its free! Always clean, great location and the family who run it are very honest and nice... More

I am a female solo traveller and originally booked just 2 nights at this hostel and stayed for 1.5 weeks in the end. The family are so lovely that run this, always willing to help. The breakfast is great! The lady who does the cleaning never seems to stop, it's cleaned really regularly. The price is great and the location... More

This is a great little place, right on the beach. A private room for my girlfriend and I was inexpensive, it was clean, and quiet. They are basic rooms, but what do you expect for a budget hotel? The price included a nice little breakfast. and all in it was 24 dollars a night. Not bad at all! I had... More

My husband and I loved this place! It's a quiet, old, bright hotel with tons of character... Lovely balconies overlooking the ocean. The family are helpful and reasonable. We had originally booked an unimpressive hostel, but switched upon finding this place, which was cheaper and had breakfast included. It's simple.. The bathrooms and showers are downstairs, but If you're looking... More

This hostel is average to poor quality. The washroom are all downstairs while all the rooms are upstairs. They are cleaned regularly but the also often don't flush properly. The lady who owns the hostel is also not winning any prizes for miss congeniality. Breakfast is from 7-9. I went down at 5 mins to nine and she told me... More
