Stayed here for around 2 weeks. For the price, its a really great place. Rooms were nice enough. Chilled out vibes, big tv, cool balcony to hang out. The manager is sound. If your passing through SJDS and you want to save some ££, check this place out.

We stayed there for a while and the entire period of time it wasn't safe at all, neither organized. Which means every one could get in the hostel and do whatever they wanted...weird situation! No check in or check out, loud and again lack of respect trowards the guests...expecially if in dorms.. Because you pay less i guess!

We wanted to spend a day in some of the beaches around San Juan, so we booked the tour with Casa Amarilla since some friends were staying here. We wanted to leave at 10 am, have launch at the beach and come back. We ended up leaving past 1 pm, with the truck full of people and without surfboards nor...

It's close to everything in town! Just a few blocks awat from the coast. The personnel is very genuine and friendly :). Cool tours and trips to other beaches nearby so you can really get to know SJDS.

This place was awesome. Small, intimate, great people working there. The water is free, which is a nice change in a region where everything seems to have a cost. Open kitchen and travellers seem to cook together more often than I've seen in other places. Awesome balcony with a really comfortable hammock that 2 or even 3 people can fit...
