The people were nice and it is right near the ferry and the walls have great art on them. The pancake breakfast was fun but it starts late so if you're leaving early it's not an option. I did like the roof deck. The 6 bed dorm has beds right on the floor and the carpet didn't seem very clean....

The bunks are a bit low in space, the kitchen is a bit small and the adjacent area needs more sittings, but it is the only hostel there, less than a block from the access to the ferry to the Spanish Virgin Islands, it has AC, three bathrooms, a roof terrace, paid laundry, and you can write on the walls....

It's a hostel, but it's clean and it's a short walk to the ferry. We spent one night in the cheaper private room (there are two private rooms - the more expensive one has a TV and a small fridge, but there's a TV in the common lounge, if you really need one, and a big fridge in the kitchen...

This place scared us. It is in a rough area with nothing to speak of within walking distance. The common areas are very eclectic, including writing on the walls, which was kind of charming. The roof top area was neat and the staff was friendly. We got one of the private rooms, which was not clean or well kept. The...

Unfortunately stayed here for 3 days and I really would not recommend this hostel. In terms of location, there is absolutely nothing near-by except the ferry port. The staff was not very friendly or helpful. Rooms were dirty and dark. I could not believe the poor people-to-bathroom ratio. There are only 3 bathrooms in the entire hostel, so between a...

The couple that owns this hostel is VERY accomodating and very cute. The hostel has a room downstairs to watch netflix and a roof top balcony for all the tenants to hangout during late hours. For a hostel the rooms and bathrooms are very tidy. I highly recommend this place if you are coming through Fajardo for a night or...

The art in the hostel is amazing. The staff is very helpful for figuring out how to get to all major spots to visit. You could show up here and stay for a week with no plans and figure out an amazing time.

This hostel's only redeemable quality is that it is close to the ferrys. It was not that nice, the A/C did not work nor the fans. The area is not great, and taxis are non-existent. I would highly recommend spending the extra money on a local hotel if you are planning on taking the ferry in the morning.
