We stayed at Chale's House for a week and really liked it. The place is very central, near the market of San Juan del Sur, where also the busstop is. I will really miss the "Rivas, Rivas, Rivas" call of the busdriver, shortly before they leave.. You feel like you are in the middle of thie "normal life" of the people here.
The room was simple, but cozy, comfortable bed, ventilator and some space to put your clothes. Clean private bath with cold shower, that just worked fine. Comfy bed.
We went surfing to Playa Maderas with Arenas Caliente Surfshop almost everyday and enjoyed the beach and the layed back atmosphere of the town and Chale's very much. The owner and his wife are very firendly and helpful and after a couple of days it feels a bit like home.
Of course, there are lots of hostels and hotels in town, so you have a big variety. You can have a room or apartment with a private balcony and seaview, which CHale's House does not offer. But for the price (we payed 14 US-Dollars for a double in low season) you really can't complain! We would definitely go back to Chale's!
