Friendly people running this hostel but its just a business. so from my experience you can get other hostels for the same dorm price. they have dorms of 6 with two fans, free coffee in the morning very quiet and it was nice but its not what you want when you go to san juan. especially if you are a...

My boyfriend and I booked a private room for an overnight stay in SJDS as we had to catch a bus early the next morning. We woke up after midnight to find bed bugs crawling on our bed. Although the manager onsite was apologetic and tried to help, given that there were no other private rooms available and the time... More

I had reserved through Booking.com, but when I arrived there the staff acted like they knew nothing about this. I was left stranded on New Year's Eve and only by pure luck I could find an alternative, at twice the price... Obviously, there is no single reason why you'd ever want to book into this place as long as they... More

This place looked like a steal at $6/night...well we certainly got what we paid for. While our room was clean and rather spacious, the one common bathroom was neglected and I had to ask twice for toilet paper. We had 2 fans so thought it would be fine without a/c, but there were no windows to help with ventilation and... More

This is the best hotel value in town. At $10 a night per person with a private bath (A/C an unnecessary extra charge), and two blocks from the beach on a quiet, relatively lightly-travelled street a block and a half from the Mercado Central, the location is ideal. Two sisters run this six room niche, and do so very well... More

The staff was very kind. They answered all of our questions! Near fun bars. Simple room with aircon & shower. It's unassuming when you see it- but it's a great place to stay. It was the cheapest place with a/c! And it WORKED!
