We really recommend this place! A very nice balcony with a hammock and great view. During our time there the room next to us had some problems with the toilet (leak). Although this affected us we got compensated for this in a very good way!

This is the best place ever. It feels like home. Everyone is friendly, the rooms are incredibly secure. There is a rooftop terrace to watch sunsets over the bay. Its affordable, private bathrooms, and an upscale shared living room/kitchen that three rooms share. Its incredible. Its beautiful, upscale, cool, private but social. We met some of the best people there. Great wifi. I could live here!!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the second and third floors, both are equally amazing. The other guests let us see thei...

We stayed 7 nights in a private room w bath, it was great. The shared kithen & living room was with only 2 other rooms so it wasn't ever an issue. The WiFi was great, worked better on the 2nd floor than 3rd though, we stayed 2 nights on 2nd floor and 5 on the 3rd. They have a nice roof top deck good for sunsets. I wish they had hot water though....the rooms can get hot but other than that I was happy for the price!

We extended our stay in San Juan del Sur because of our experience with this lodging, which is the only place we could find at a reasonable price point that offered nice common spaces for each apartment, fully equipped kitchen(even a blender for guayaba pina smoothies in the morning), extremely clean, nice balcony with hammock, very personable and helpful hosts, and some separation of space with the bedrooms, which has become important when travelling with teenagers! Price point was less than Casa Oro, but a bit more than some of the other hostels, but well worth it for the amenities, privacy, and location.

Prior comments about noise are true, but this is the norm in Central America, and Mexico. I am an early riser, so the 6 a.m. church bells did not bother me(I am already enjoying the roosters and parrots by this point).

Regarding AC, we never felt it was necessary. We had just come out of two weeks working and camping in the jungle on a finca, so perhaps our perspective was skewed. The ceiling fans were more than adequate.

Room Tip: If you are needing quiet, the lower apartment with the bedroom facing the courtyard/roof, versus the...

As our reservation for a double bed room ensuite with Hostelworld did not work out, we got the apartment for the same price which was very huge and comfortable. Everything is in good shape, lovely interior. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living area invites to cook together and have a nice evening. However, ask in advance if the air conditioning is included in your price as we had to pay this extra and no one told us beforehand. La Terraza is only 3minutes walk from the wonderful bay and all restaurants, shops and an Internet Cafe are nearby, just across the road. Staff is friendly and helpful. Arrange your tours with the hostel Casa Oro which is just a minute away from La Terazza.

This place combines some of the comfort and privacy of a nice apartment with the price and sociability of a hostel. We met some really nice people who were sharing our apartment and the owners were also welcoming and were extremely helpful when we had to stay on a few extra days due to a lost passport. The balcony area is great for relaxing and there are beautiful views from the rooftop at sunset. We looked at a good few options in San Juan del Sur and this was the best value we came across. Recommended.

Our group of 6 girls had the top floor apartment which has 3 rooms. It would have been much more comfortable with AC, as it was very hot even at night. We thoroughly enjoyed the terrace and the hammock, and I especially loved that we were right downtown yet away from most of the noise (at night). Unfortunately it's right across the street from a church whose bells start going off at 6am. I highly recommend booking through a hostel booking website, because that's what we did and it saved us $30 per night, which is what we would have paid had we booked directly through the La Terraza website. I think next time I would look for a place with AC, although I would miss that balcony...

Room Tip: The room with the two twin beds may be the most comfortable to sleep in the heat (away from body hea...
