Reviewed 2 November 2017

It was a sweet small hostel. We liked staying here for 4nights. They had a lovely chilling area in the inner courtyard and we liked the small breakfast AS well.
We sleeped in a dorm which is in need of New painting, New madresses and pillows (smelling Bad). In addition the beds Were realy loud wehen you Were moving During night and the dorm was not realy clean.
But for the price it was okay to stay for few days.

I was torn between giving 4 or 5 stars for this review. There was nothing wrong here but was it up to a five star standard.
This hostel is super cozy, the staff only spoke little English but that wasn't really a problem. The room was spacious with a couple of fans and an en-suite bathroom. It was relatively clean and the beds comfy so couldn't complain.
The free breakfast was almost a traditional breakfast and it was a good start to the day. The location was great, right on the beach at the end of the hotel strip meaning it was quiet and peaceful. Attached to the outside was a handy little taco place in case you didn't have the energy to walk into the town.

had a good time, I liked the common area and the breeze during the night is so good after a hot and sunny day.
when I was doing my check out, the staff helped me with all the info to go from SJDS to Leon in one day.

The hostel has a very good location, right by the beach and not right in the center for tranquility. We were welcomed by a kind staff and had a cosy room with a good bed (even 2 beds) for cheap price. The common area is really nice with trees, cats and hammocks. The room could have been cleaner with the floor being still sandy at our arrival and the sink being clogged and full of grey waste.

Quiet and cosy hostel just on the edge of the center of san juan next to the beach. The rooms are clean but nothing special. Lots of mosquitos but the fan on the ceiling really helps to keep them off. Breakfast is included (which is already very nice) but nothing to be excited about (medium gallo pinto, fruits and bad coffee). There are also enough parking possibilities for cars. The receptionists were very helpful and motivated. The courtyard has a lot of plants and invites to hang out with other guests of the hostel :)

Secret not so secret tip: Have a bite at the mexican restaurant in front of La Esperanza Hostel. Best mexican food we had in Nicaragua!
