Clean room, helpful staff, great location, safe area, cool events and interesting people to surround yourself with. What else could you ask you for? This is the place to stay when you are in San Juan.

Was only here for my last night in PR but enjoyed the awesome hospitality of the staff, the lodging, and the awesome location. Also, the towels smelt so fresh and so clean which was a sign I was in a well cared for spot :) Looking forward to returning on my next visit to PR!

Really enjoyed hanging out with Chris and Jane. They took us to bars and made us feel like home. Lots of fun. The common area is nice and cozy therefore one can easily make friends. Many hostels don't have a social engaging atmosphere but this one does. Recommend for young travellers looking to meet people and save some cash.

Stayed here just 2 nights with my girlfriend and loved the fact that this hostel was in and old "authentic" barrio. Staff were amazing and the place is kept extremely clean! Will be back soon! A short distance to Calle Cerra, the street with the highest concentración of street art in the Caribbean!

The best thing about that place is the atmosphere: great people, great staff, very relaxed and helpful. There's always group of people to meet and hang out with. The location is also great: not far to Condado or Old San Juan. There are local, cheap bars everywhere around the hostel. The location is in an area dominated by the locals,...
