Hammock House Hostel
Reviewed March 19, 2013

My friends and I went to Puerto Rico and our biggest regret is not spending enough time on Vieques Island. The one night we stayed there we stayed at the Hammock House Hostel. The owners (Tofer and Jake) are great, charismatic guys who were super helpful and fun to be around. When we got there, they sat us all down and gave us a map of the island. They pointed out all the best places to go, they called and scheduled a biobay tour for us, they let us rent a car from a neighbor for cheap, and they filled us in on cultural practices and rules we needed to be aware of. The room was great, beds were comfy, building was beautiful and colorful. After our biobay tour at night we were all really hungry and Tofer shared some of his food with us: we all made PB&J sandwiches and spaghetti together! Hanging out in the common area was really fun, we got to meet new friends and hear about their adventures.

Overall, literally nothing negative to say about these guys or this hostel. Definitely the place to stay on Vieques.

Tofer and Jake. Not much is needed for you to know that you should stay here besides those two names. There is such a great atmosphere at this place. Admittedly the location is not fantastic but it is easy enough to get every where you want. In just minutes in the phone with Tofer I felt like we were already friends. They know what travellers need and it is the little things that count.

Our room was a private room with bath. There are kitchens to use, only one of which is fully equipped. Everything is extremely clean. There are even things like aluminium foil, paper towels, and ziploc bags to help you prepare your picnic lunch. There isn't too much on the island for restaurants so prepare to cook a bit. There are coolers to borrow and chairs ect. the wifi didn't work so well in the room but just down the hall it was good, good ole cement walls.

The guys are a huge source of info about the island. They helped us get a great deal on a rental car which is recommended for a least one day. They also hooked us up so we could kayak in the bio bay in single boats. Stay here for a budget friendly and relaxed holiday. Oh and there dog, Izzi, is such a love!

Stayed 2 nights in Mar13 with Tofer and Jake (and Izy!) at Hammock House and wished we could have stayed longer. We stayed in a private room. The hostel was very clean and had a family atmosphere. Jake and Tofer were super helpful. As soon as we arrived Jake sat us down with a map of the island and explained the things to do and see. They helped us organise Biobay tour and car rental. Our first night was eventful with a power outage and some incidents occurring that were out of our hosts hands but they did their best to make us comfortable and happy. Would totally recommend this hostel to everyone. Parry and Tammy

We stayed last April when Topher and Jake took over the property. I can attest that from day one they were absolutely perfect hosts, even when we caught them off-guard the first day! We had to go to Vieques to work on an event and we could not have chosen a better place to stay.

We stayed 5 nights at the hammock house hostel. From the begining we (two german girls) felt very comfortable. Tofer and Jake are really good hosts! They are always asking " how are you?, everything ok?, what are you planning for today?"...If you need help, they offer it immediately. We booked a private room with a private bathroom! The room was very clean, the beds were convenient and the hole area was safe, at least because of Izzy the dog ;). She is the sweetest dog I have ever met, and if you are lucky she will join you in the hammock!
Vieques is a very nice island. Its hard to find such a lot of beautyful, lonley beaches anywhere else in the caribbean sea. You should plan more days for staying there. We rented bikes and explore the island a bit. Also we made the bio-bay-tour! It was so amazing!!!!
We can highly recommend the hammock house hostel! The stay was perfect!
Thank you Tofer and Jake! Hope we`ll see us again!

My girlfriend and I spent two days in Vieques, and the Hammock House made the entire trip worthwhile. Tofer and Jake were both courteous and incredibly helpful during our entire stay. The hostel was very well maintained, and very clean. If you're planning a trip to Vieques, and you're on a budget, you CANNOT go wrong with Hammock Hoise?

This is just so amazing! You have to experience it! The owners of this hostel are awesome and they do the best they can to make you feel comfortable! They hang out with you, talking, giving advises if you want and they manage completly ALL you want to have organizated! The Dog Izzy is the point which is topping all of it. She`s just so cute and like to hang out with you in the hammock if you want :) and still does her security job very good! Not if this is necessary, becaus the hostel is situated very save in the community. Half an hour (walking) away from the city center of Isabel II. There is a supermarket just 3minutes away and a bar with good local food. The rooms are clean and huge! Bathrooms as well. We felt like being at home there and were sad when we had to leave. Its just the best Hostel ever!!! Thank you so much for all!!!!

Room Tip: We had a private room with seperated bed, what they offer us before we arrived! That was the only st...
