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

Location good, service questionable. We got stuck in our room in the morning as the door had no handle on the inside making us 1 minute ( yes really 1 minute) late for breakfast and she wouldn't serve us. We then had to buy further breakfast which ended up costing more than the room in the first place. It is... More

Bfst advertised from 7am but if your lucky you will get it after they finish cleaning past 8am then I was told I had to eat with my friend who was still sleeping and not on my own. Service zero. Also we got bothered about joining tours and they didn't really help unless they were getting something out of it.... More

The hotel is quite shabby chic but clean with really helpful staff (the son speaks really good English), and is right on the beach. Breakfast was included and was really good. The gelato place next door is incredible!

If you like friendly staff avoid this terrible hotel. Incredibly rude and unhelpful, hard to believe they think its an appropriate way to behave considering they work in the hospitality industry. It is cheap though and the view form the balconies in the rooms are great.
