My friends and I stumbled across this gem of a spot amidst the Christmas holidays in San Juan. We could not have been luckier! - our experience with the hostel and its owner Chely was absolutely amazing. We initially planned on staying only for a few days but we ended up staying for a couple weeks. The hostel has a...

We booked this hostel for 1 night in the week of new year and ended up staying here for 9 nights. For us it was the best place to stay in San Juan. You can find the parties in town by only walking 5 to 10 minutes and after this you have a quiet night of sleep. The owner, Chely...

Only going to stay a night but ended up staying a week! Awesome location with friendly staff and great owner Chely. He makes you feel welcome and it's like staying in his house. Air con rooms and an awesome bar and pool. They take you to a different beach each day to go surfing. Had a great time and good...

I stayed at this hostel for over a week, the location is quiet, but a two minute walk to great nightlife. It is right on the beach. Really clean room and amenities, and friendly attentive service from all the staff. I particularly liked the owner, he is really dedicated to making sure everyone has a good time. Small, but impressive...

PLEASE do not stay here. I got $140 stolen from my room and they did NOTHING about it. It was a locked room. The rooms there are terrible and someone with a key had access to our room and went into my purse and stole the money. They made us pay for all the nights we stayed there. The owner...

We stayed one night at Yajure in a private room with AC. It cost $40 USD and couldn't have been a more disappointing place to stay. Dark, dirty, not well kept, unhelpful staff. We didn't have a private bathroom, AC did not work well, bed was covered in some sort of small animal droppings, huge cockroaches in the room. We...

We had a private room out the back that was pretty run down. Also didn't seem real clean and pretty sure I got bitten by bed bugs. The rest of the place seems good big common areas and pool. The staff were unhelpful and seemed like they didn't want to be there. To get here you have to wade through...

Stayed a few nights with some friends because we randomly came upon it when searching for a reasonably priced dorm. At ten dollars including (a pretty poor) breakfast, pool and A/C it was a decent deal for San Juan. The hostel is relaxed and we felt safe walking there from town along the beach after dark. The building has great...

My girlfriend and I stayed in the private room / privada. We didn't look to closely at the condition of the room and the beds when we first booked it in the morning. From first look at the room it does not look very well maintained but we only planned to stay one night so we could handle it. After...
