This is a great hostel, very reasonably priced. We had a private room which was very clean & spacious. Great location too, right on the beach & a few mins walk to bars/ restaurants. Nice pool & bar area, outside sofas & hammocks to lounge about on. The owner is super cool too, really helpful & friendly. He even got...

We loved our stay! We got a great price for a lovely and spotless private room (with AC!). The facilities were top notch - big kitchen, pool, bar, etc. The staff (including the super sweet owner) was impeccable. Right on the beach, right in town...the perfect place to see the Saturday night fireworks. We liked SJdS so much I decided...

My friends and I stumbled across this gem of a spot amidst the Christmas holidays in San Juan. We could not have been luckier! - our experience with the hostel and its owner Chely was absolutely amazing. We initially planned on staying only for a few days but we ended up staying for a couple weeks. The hostel has a...

We booked this hostel for 1 night in the week of new year and ended up staying here for 9 nights. For us it was the best place to stay in San Juan. You can find the parties in town by only walking 5 to 10 minutes and after this you have a quiet night of sleep. The owner, Chely...

Only going to stay a night but ended up staying a week! Awesome location with friendly staff and great owner Chely. He makes you feel welcome and it's like staying in his house. Air con rooms and an awesome bar and pool. They take you to a different beach each day to go surfing. Had a great time and good...

I stayed at this hostel for over a week, the location is quiet, but a two minute walk to great nightlife. It is right on the beach. Really clean room and amenities, and friendly attentive service from all the staff. I particularly liked the owner, he is really dedicated to making sure everyone has a good time. Small, but impressive...

PLEASE do not stay here. I got $140 stolen from my room and they did NOTHING about it. It was a locked room. The rooms there are terrible and someone with a key had access to our room and went into my purse and stole the money. They made us pay for all the nights we stayed there. The owner...

We stayed one night at Yajure in a private room with AC. It cost $40 USD and couldn't have been a more disappointing place to stay. Dark, dirty, not well kept, unhelpful staff. We didn't have a private bathroom, AC did not work well, bed was covered in some sort of small animal droppings, huge cockroaches in the room. We...
