Naked Tiger is the best place to stay in all of Nica! The facility is absolutely beautiful and the view can't be beat! The staff make you feel like family and you will make incredible friends there. There's food and drinks all day long and shuttles to the beach and into town all the time. Megan and Beau are the... More

I've never felt so at home , people everywhere asking me if I was ok , friends forever , wind blowing offshore and Sunday funday blowing in the air . New friends made and memories made/ forgotten . If I could recommend anywhere in Central America that you could find friends that turn into family . This is the place... More

Best place I have stayed from Mexico down to Nicaragua. The hostel setting up on the hill with incredible views and amazing sunsets every night is so sick. Partys are crazy. Manager Beau is the biggest legend out. He took us surfing and partied harder than anyone ever. Met heaps of cool people there too. Great times

If you like Sun, Surf, Sand and tons of fun with great people this is the place to be! You live in a mansion house atop a hill with a pool with a million dollar view... Like no other. Options for surf beaches, booze cruises, and free shuttles to town! Smile, get amongst it, and let you worries melt away...... More

Went there for the Sunday Funday Party! Awesome view, service, it´s pretty cheap. I had the most incredible time there, if you want to party, this definitely the best option. Lovely people, was the most fun party ever.

Best place to meet new people from around the world and enjoy the Sunday funday! The view is spectacular and clearly one of the best in San Juan del Sur. Good food and good service. Everyday there is something special to enjoy the hostel.

the hostel itself is pretty good! you're greeted with friendly staff and a welcome drink. the rooms and common areas are cleaned daily but if you wake up before the cleaners do, it's a huge mess. but it's a party hostel so you have to understand that. the pool is also nice and seems to be cleaned frequently.. only issue...

Best hostel I have been to during my three months of travel! The staff is great, the view over san Juan from the swimming pool is beautiful and the people you meet here are awesome. During the weekdays you can relax here and in the weekend days you can party enough. Of course the infamous sunday funday is a highlight... More

If you're looking for a party hostel then naked tiger is certainly it and more. However, it's super far away. There are shuttles that go back and forth between the naked tiger and san juan once every hour but imo its super limiting if you're trying to explore san juan del sur and the surrounding beaches. I didn't have this... More
