The rooms here are just too warm. A couple of very small fans do nothing for rooms of 8+ people packed into a small space. Would highly recommend staying at Naked Tiger up the hill for a similar price with cleaner rooms, better atmosphere and cool rooms.

I've visited Casa Oro Hostel on a weekend. That's probably a good idea if you're looking for party. Down on the street and in the hostel there are lots of people partying - and the dorm rooms can't be closed. Casa Oro seems a little chaotic but a good place to stay if you're looking for a good time with...

Thank you for your review and feedback. On the weekends San Juan is more full and has many fiestas going on, however we will take your noise feedback into account and try to improve where we can.

Within minutes of arriving at Casa Oro I'd already locked in a surf trip with an instructor for the next day. As no-one else booked it, it ended up being a private lesson, where I caught 23 waves in 2 hours! I was 10 minutes early for the surf trip truck that is shared by everyone going in that direction,...

Casa oro is well located in San Juan del Sur. Unlike other hostels in Nicaragua you have to pay for everything advance. The staff at the reception is not always friendly. The hostel is very big, with 3-4 dorm. The second dorm at the ground floor was dirty, especially the bathroom. Cockroaches were having a peaceful family life in the...

What makes or breaks a hostel is the ambience and attitude of the staff, and casa oro was really unpleasant. From the reception clerk who acted as if she was bestowing a great gift upon us by allowing the unique honor of a room, through the unfriendly reaponses to basic questions (where is the cinema? The nica bus agency?) and...

Really nice hostel with a sociable vibe and friendly staff. The 6 person dorm upstairs was nice (definitely looked nicer than the dorms downstairs) and with a decent shower. Ipads and lockers for free use. Shuttles every day to local beaches, Playa Hermosa was picture-perfect and almost deserted. Breakfast is served until 10 and check out is at 11 which...

Stayed here with a group of 35 people. They are extremely accommodating. FREE BREAKFAST EVERYMORNING! Central location to all the bars, restaurants, and beach. Only downside is if you want air con in your room you have to pay an extra $10 per night.
