My sister and I have travelled all over the world and as travellers on a budget we often find ourselves in some rough accommodation. However Casa del Mar in San Juan del Sur is by far the most disgusting place we have ever stayed! On arrival, the place looked quite nice with a tiki sort of vibe and a great... More

We booked this place on a whim after realising we couldn't get another night at our Airbnb. We checked the rooms out and it seemed basic but fine for one night and for $7 per person. Wrong. When we checked in on Saturday afternoon the music was already pumping with the locals settled in for a long day of drinking.... More

We arrived on a Saturday evening in SJDS without a booking, which is a bad idea regarding Sunday Funday. After walking around a bit we found this hostel. It's on the beach and was only 7 usd a night. The room had a standing fan and the beds were decent. The bar is nice and many locals head there for... More

What makes this place special is the porch, with rocking chairs. The beer is cheap and ice cold, and the wings are great, but the best part is the digital jukebox loaded with all of the English and Spanish tunes from the 70's and 80's.

As others posts have mentioned, my bed (and the other girls in my room) also had bed bugs. I found them in the middle of the night, so they put me in a new room. My new room smelled like a gasoline (I learned later it was from the chemicals used to kill bed bugs) so they switched me to... More

There are bed bugs in this hostel. I said I would never write a TripAdvisor review, and this is my first, but fellow travellers should know about the bed bugs here. We were warned about the bed bugs by other travellers who were checking out when we were checking in. For whatever reason, we chose to ignore them. The rooms... More
