“Winning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

Hostel is the best! Met the greatest ppl (guests and employees) and of course autzen the dog!!! They have great pool partys! And have an awesome pool which is great for gettin a tan at! The surf instructor creighton makes sure your up in the am if you want to surf. The owners are the nicest ppl and you feel like your a friend rite away! If everyones tired they have awesome movie nites when everyone just chills. Free breaky and shuttles to town every 2 hours! Shuttle to the beach ranches from 6 - 10 dollars (return) and board rental is 10. Recommend this hostel to everyone thats headed to San Juan! you wont regret it! Can't wait to go back!

You know the theme song to that classic American show Cheers:

Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name

That's the feeling I got every time I walked into the NakedTiger. This place was a safe haven from the grind that is real life. The two weeks I stayed at this beautiful villa estate was some of the best times of my life. The surfing, the views, the communal meals, movie nights, and of course THE POOL PARTIES. All of the staff are so damn welcoming and friendly, how the hell couldn't you have a blast? I would (and have) recommend this to all of my friends and family, and I look forward to returning next year. Fun stuff happens when you party Naked!

This is simply the best hostel me and my girlfriend have ever stayed in. Its this amazing villa with a great pool which overlooks the ocean. If you dont like to meet new people or are looking at spending lots of time on facebook then you wont like it. The vibe and atmosphere from all the staff was so good we had sooooo much fun with them and lots of surprise party's!!!, Everyone was always so helpful,I organised some surfing lessons for my girlfriend and was awesome took the extra time with all the knowledge etc.
we were only going to stay for a night but after coming to this place we stayed for a week and wished i could have stayed longer. It is so rare these days to find a hostel that ticks all the boxes and meet such like minded people who want to have an awesome time.

If your looking for a great hostel with amazing views and party you've definitely found the right place. The staff is super friendly and will help you out in any way they can.
If you're new at surfing they offer the greatest classes with an amazing instructor (ask for Crayton). This is not a couples retreat and therefore no private rooms. But that's the way Naked Tiger is supposed to be.
Every night you get to watch an incredible sunset with a rum and coke in your hand.
What else could you ask for?

One of the best experience of my trip was this hostel.. You go there and u can't leave!! After I traveled all over Central America I can say for sure that the Naked Tiger is the best one!
I recommend for all of you ( well just if u are young, handsome & crazy ) to go stay there.. U will fall in love with the stuff, people from all over the world, place, view and sunset!! :)

10 WEEKS IN HEAVEN!

I just spent a week in San Juan del Sur and I have to say my stay at The Naked Tiger pretty much made the trip. The atmosphere here is one of a kind. It's a super friendly place that feels like you're staying at a friends house. They have great parties and events everyday and they provide you with everything you need to enjoy your time in San Juan. The staff is super helpful and they keep the place spotless. I also have to say they have many beautiful girls staying here and they do a great job of making sure nobody is a stranger. I highly recommend staying here especially if you like have a great time. Make sure to say hello to that little ginger Jeff for me and that dirtbag Ryan Spiegel, and party naked!

This place has it all. A huge mansion overlooking all of san juan del sur with a pool. How can you beat that? Great place to meet people from all over the world and the hostel makes it easy to socialize with everyone. They have a surf company at the hostel which made it easy to surf everyday. They just added some new bathrooms and showers which was a plus. Once they get the restaurant this hostel will be a one stop shop, which the owners Jeff and Ryan are working on at the moment. They are constantly working on the hostel to make it better for their guests and if you dont stay here during your time in Central America you are missing out!!
