Needed to crash for a few hours and this was the perfect spot! Clean private room with bunk beds and a private bathroom. Excellent location and helpful, friendly staff! Street parking was convenient and FREE! Awesome neighborhood to explore Condado and Santurce.

I absolutely loved this hostel! Definitely one of my favourites. This was our last hostel for the final two nights of our backpacking adventure. Cool location and great service from the staff. Best part was, without a doubt, the people. If you're looking to have a good time this is the place for you.

So inexpensive, comfortable, and the workers were all friendly. Made sure everyone had fun and always felt safe. Chris was very accommodating when my flight had to be delayed and when I got there he was just as cool. Definitely recommend this place.

Great staff! We had so much fun and met so many cool people! Location was great, not too touristy but still a close walk to the beach. Everyone there had great suggestions of what to do and where to go!

If you're looking for a luxurious hotel stay in an uppity-up district, this isn't the place for you. If you're on a budget and don't mind being located in a "real" San Juan neighborhood, check these guys out. The hostel itself was fairly clean and I didn't feel unsafe one time when I was in my room. Sheets were washed... More
