This is a great place to stay when you are in Old San Juan for a night or two. It s a Hostel, not a hotel, which means it is more of a place were you just go to sleep, use the bathroom and take a shower, that s it. They rent beds in coed or single sex bedrooms, and...

Aside from the view ad great location you want a CLEAN nice hotel with hot water to stay in regardless of the trip. We literally had to look for staff because no one stays at the desk. going down the hallway is super dark at night with no light. The elevator would go up and down a few times before...

Came here for the first day of my honeymoon. Paid 6$ extra for a king size bed which was actually 2 full beds pushed together. Sheets and towels were DIRTY with orange hairs. We slept on top of our clothes on the beds. It was so embarrassing it was actually humorous. I will say the staff was pretty nice and...

First We are a hostel; with Shared bathrooms. with rooms ranging $40-$60 Maybe not the place for a dream romantic honeymoon if thats what you wife was looking for. Just wanted to point that out. and if you wife cannot handle budget accommodations ; maybe granting her something more private; might have been the right move! Sometimes you just have...

I have too say I really like this hostel. Nice location and view, many small rooms and bathrooms. Laudry, commons area, kitchen, wifi (but only in the commons area), lockers, activity. Only breakfast was a huge disappointment.

Location is primo!! The property is actually across 2 floors, with a great kitchen! - including views of course! The basic rooms are that, basic, but it did come with it's own fridge & A/C. I plan to re-book here in a few weeks but this time I will bring my own PILLOW!! The pillows they offer have a plastic...

I made a reservation for a private room via Hostelworld. Unfortunately the Posada cancelled my reservation when I was in the air. My flight arrived at 5 am. I took the bus and was at the location by 6 am. They don’t have anyone at reception until 9:30 am as posted. So I had to wait to drop off my...

Private rooms are much nicer than dorm rooms (stayed at both), price almost the same so recommend booking a private room. Shared bathrooms, ok condition. Bring your sleeping mask, no curtains on windows at least in those rooms we stayed in. Needs a bit of updating.

I've been to a lot of hostels. Posada San Francisco is accessible to Old San Juan, social, clean, and has some of the best dorm beds I have ever seen. Solid wood and they don't move no matter who's climbing up and down the ladder. The balconies have an awesome view, and the vibe is super friendly and great for...

The hostel is on the 5th and 6th floor of an old building. We stayed there for two nights and it's very safe (you need a key-card to enter). We stayed in a 3-bed room which was clean and comfortable with two closets and a mini-fridge. The bathrooms are common and were clean. They have a kitchenette for your use....

Posada San Francisco is located on a great public square called Plaza Colon on the edge of Old San Juan. The hostel occupies a few top floors of a gorgeous historic building. The lower floors of the building are law offices. The elevator is super old but it did work when I stayed in March 2017. My favorite parts about...
