My love for this place grows every time I go back. My girlfriend and I were welcomed back by Megs the owner. She is the sweetest, best person who will make your stay unforgettable. The whole place is a neverland with great views, beautiful people and more fun than you can possibly stomach. The place is great for surfers as...

Stayed at the Naked Tiger for 5 nights beginning of April with a friend. If you want to party- here's the place!! The staff were fun and helpful (when they weren't drunk) and we had a great time! Sunday Funday is a MUST!! The Naked Tiger is the 3rd hostel you go to so you can watch the amazing sunset...

I can only describe my stay at The Naked Tiger Hostel as a most memorable one. Perched high above the hills in San Juan del Sur, one is immediately impressed by the ocean view and hills not to mention the breathtaking sunsets.The warmth and generosity of the staff and fellow travellers alike only seem to make my experience that much...

If you like to party, this is the place to be. I've stayed at many hostels and I have never felt so unwelcomed before. We booked online and paid a booking fee of $10 we thought that was a down payment, but when we checked in, the guy told us it's just a booking fee and none of that goes...

If you're planning on going anywhere near San juan, you better find your way up the hill to the naked tiger. It's just a bunch of legends with a legendary view, and epic parties. I actually changed my flights home to stay there longer, no joke. Special thanks to Hahn, chookie, and tori for that...your absolute beauticians, keep killin it....

The place was clean, great party atmosphere and everyone had an amazing time, the food was great as well. I don't have any complaints about my time there. I...

Great hostel, unbelievable views, food good but a little pricy. Lock your stuff up, my wallet with everything in was stolen from my bag next to my bed behind my backpack. Can't be sure if it was the cleaners or fellow travellers. Everything is on a tab so be careful what you spend. The exchange rate to pay in USD...

I can't even describe my love for this place and the people here. A party hostel from the travelling heavens, placed on a hill for one hell of a view of SJDS. From sunset shotguns to Sunday Funday to random Wednesday parties because everyone feels like it. This place is perfect for all the party, sporadic chill, beach days, surf...
