The location and facilities of the hostel are great. This place has so much potential, but because of the terrible management I dont think I would advice this place... - The staff is the whole day watching videos,on their phone and being lazy. Dont ask too much !! ( for ex no more toilet paper) - Ridiculous prices: 1 dollar...

Although this hotel is nicely located on the beach in San Juan del Sur (which is not a surf location), I would not return to Yajure nor would I recommend to anyone else. The owner/manger seems to be unaware of how to treat people properly. When I arrived, he seemed annoyed to have to check me in, it was clear...

Awesome mansion style hostel with kitchen, wifi, pool, ping pong, TV room, free breakfast, bar etc.. (what more could you ask for?) Dorms are clean and have air con at...

The owner Chelli, stole our stuff. Caught him red-handed. When trying to confront him with it, he got really defensive and ignored the facts. It's a shame that this happened to us. The accomodations and rooms where pretty good.

What a lovely spacious hostel, right by the beach in San Juan del Sur. From the adorable cat Kirra to the comfy big couches, open plan spaces and pool, this hostel is perfect if you want to stay for a few days and make some friends. They have a bar as well and do cocktails and beer. The only thing...

I stayed 1 week in San Juan del Sur and my stay at Yajure's hostel was very enjoyble. The facilities for recreation that we had were very good (table tennis, swimming pool, slack line) although some others were not working so good (TV, some toilets). We had some issues with the internet connections ans was not working or very slow...

Came to San Juan and struggled to find accomodation without booking ahead and ended up in a cosy dorm (6 beds) at Yajure. Receptionist at the hostel didn't speak any English which made things slightly more difficult but others staying at the hostel offered to help translate. Wanted to surf in San Juan but came in windy season and weather...

We booked this hostel right on the beach thinking we'd have the surf close by. But you can't surf in San Juan so you have to take a shuttle other beaches. Not what we had thought. That's one of the reasons we were disapointed in this hostel, they say they are a surfschool located right on the beach. A bit...

The location could not be better. Situated right on the beach and a short walk along a well-lit and restaurant lined main road into town. However, despite this I would not recommend this hostel to my worst enemy! Chelly (the owner) is one of the most despicable human beings I have ever met. He steals from his guests, and I...

Chillie is a fantastic host. I like this place so much that i stayed a month. Frecuent day trips to the surf spot. The hostel is basically a mantion turned into a hostel. It got a pool, good staff, good security and a close walk to town.
