  • Great location in Old San Juan. May behoove you to bring and use a pair of ear plugs-especially if staying on a room facing the street. Two bathrooms. One itty bitty bathroom with a toilet, awkward shower and no sink. The other bathroom is a large room, toilet, normal size shower and sink.

  • The hostel does not convince through its rooms, common area or whatsoever. But it is decent and clean enough to feel good about staying there. And it is just awesome in its location!! This is by far the best located hostel in San Juan. So you pay for the location and it is worth the money. Recommended!

  • I don't recommend this hostel. It is not clean and the staff doesn't speak in English. The room was without windows and the bathrooms were dirty. The price ptoo high for the standard.

  • Location is very central but therefor very noisy. No windows just a wooden broken door to close. Only a ventilator, so it is very hot and humid in the room. Bath and room not clean and very poor and old installation. Far too expensive for what it is, I guess you pay that price because it is perfectly located.

  • If you read this post, DO NOT stay here. I have stayed at dozens of hostels in the past, and this is by far THE WORST. I have never written a review, but after staying in this dump for two nights, I felt I had a moral obligation to warn others. We stayed in a room with no windows or air conditioner. What a DUMP. We ended our stay early at Fortaleza and transferred to Posada San Francisco. Posada is one of the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in and would recommend it to everyone.
