Stayed here 10 days with my mates Felix,Robin and Matt and had an awesome time. The staff were very helpful and a true delight to be around. Beau the manager went out of his way to help us find the best spots to surf and hired a personal photographer for me. The food here was good with quick service and... More

I stayed at the Naked Tiger twice in one month and it's definetly not the last time. The staff really makes you feel at home and the place offers one the most beautiful view in san juan from the pool! Amazing vibes, people, and a good time assured! 35/20.

Fantastic hostel with an awesome party vibe. Staff is super friendly and welcoming. Megan and Bo are the best hosts you could wish for (even whilst being sober). Sunday Funday might just be the greatest invention! Definitely can't go wrong at the Tiger!

Beautiful hostel with a view like no other. The place is super clean and the staff is very friendly and knowledgable about the area. If you're looking for a party hostel this is the place to be. Don't miss the opportunity to just stop in for a bite to eat or a drink if you're in the area. 5/5!

Amazing staff, unreal location and views, and great people make this place an absolute must for a weekend in San Juan. If you're looking to have a great time, meet... More

Staff were very helpful and knowledgable - I asked Beau 1000 questions and got 2000 answers. This is definitely a party hostel! We were in the upstairs dorms (and there are no private rooms) and it was quite loud at night. If you want to party, this is absolutely the best place to do that! On any day of the... More

Naked tiger is an amazing hostel! Great staff, atmosphere and loads of communal space to meet people and a great pool. Definitely do the booze cruise if you have chance. I would 100% recommend staying here if you want to have a great time and meet loads of people.

Traveled here with 5 friends from home and left with 20 new friends. From the moment we arrived (and were welcomed with a beer), this place was some of the best times I've had. I can't decide what was best: the beautiful view of SJDS, the great food that's also soo reasonably priced, the amazing pool, or the headstands on... More
