I had a blast at Pachamama. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and attentive, and really go the extra mile in terms of making you feel at home. Of course, it's more of a "party" hostel, so it's the perfect spot to celebrate with fellow travelers from all over town and there's never a boring evening-which is why I ended up staying much longer than I had originally expected. I absolutely did not want to leave.
In terms of specifics, the location is close to anything you'll need in town. They have a very convenient "tab" system that enables you to buy (reasonably priced) drinks without running to the ATM every 5 minutes (which came in handy on more than one occasion), they have a dedicated daily cleaning staff that keeps all of the rooms in tip top shape (I LOVED that their toilets and showers never let me down), and they've even got free pancakes in the morning. That's all well and good, but my real reasons for recommending this place so highly are the fantastic parties/events, the worry free experience they offer, and the great friendships you make-all important to a solo traveler such as myself.
Bottom Line: If you're in San Juan Del Sur, then you need to be staying at Hostel Pachamama.
