Yajure was a great hostel. It felt a little exclusive to to the owner's friends, but everyone was super aloha and friendly. The owner, Chely, is by far one of the coolest people I've ever met. It's in a great location and the staff is very helpful to travelers. Come here if you like surfers, reggae and a good time....

We were lucky enough to find Yajure during our stay in San Juan Del Sur. We were immediately welcomed by the owner Chelly and felt right at home. The hostel is right on the beach and also has a pool for much needed relief in the hot weather in San Juan. The beautiful hostel was kept very clean and our...

We really would not recommend this hostel to anybody... We were staying in the upstairs big dorm which at first seemed really great but as night time approached we realised that there is no light in the bathroom and showering in the dark is not fun. This didn't seem like the biggest issue but was inconvenient. We asked for towels,...

At the beginning I really liked the hostel because it has a nice surrounding and is situated uptown just after the bridge. It has a common area with a pool, a bar and big tables outside. Upstairs is a flat screen TV and also a nice area. But the 10 bed dormitory downstairs is too crowded and really dark. So...

It's a big gorgeous house with a palm tree garden overlooking the bay. Staying here makes you feel like you are sharing a luxury house with your friends. I spent 10 days here, chilling in the hammock, jumping into the pool, cooking delicious meals in the homey spacious kitchen, or lounging in one of the comfortable salon areas.. I felt...

This hostel has been one of my favourite places to stay on my entire trip so far. Really nice place to chill out, right on the beach, free coffee, great staff, clean pool, huge shared kitchen, and weekends have a mild party atmosphere. Not far from town, but not the constant party scene of a lot of other, more well...

Two friends and I (all in our early 20's) traveled to Nicaragua on a whim from Costa Rica and couldn't be more thrilled with our decision to stay at Yajure. We stayed in a private room that was clean and cleaned every day, and the amenities offered by Yajure are awesome. The front of the hostel is open air, half...

I stayed at Yajure for 4 nights. The place itself it great, it is spacious, has a pool, ping-pong table, and a nice lounging area outside. The hostel was close to town and right next to the beach. The atmosphere and the owner were really nice as well. However, make sure you bring earplugs, it can get loud due to...
