DirectionsShow MapHide Map
We are located in the heart of San Juan!
Directions are from San Juans Luis Muoz Marn International Airport (SJU)
You will need $1.50 in change, two buses $0.75 each, bills are not accepted. Oversize luggage is not allowed (you may try :) Buses at the airport come by about every 40 minutes from 6:00am until 9:00pm daily (holidays and weekend schedules may alter).
At the upper level of the airport find the bus stop by Terminal E (near the Chapel)
Take either bus route 40 or 50 to Isla Verde, ask to be let off at Dennys
Transfer to bus route T5 west towards Santurce, ask to be let off at Parada 16
Walk block and turn right onto Calle Marianna
Itll be the 8th building on the right, #1050, just after the fork in the road
(Follow these instructions, GPS systems, maps & google maps dont work great in PR and confuse our address with another one)
Take highway 26 west
Drive 8 Km (approximately 5 miles) to Roberto H. Todd (PR 2) - exit on the right.
At the traffic light turn left onto Roberto H. Todd Ave.
Keep in the right lane, and att the 2nd traffic light turn right onto Ave. Juan Ponce de Leon.
Turn right on the 6th street, Calle Mariana
Itll be the 8th building on the right just after the fork in the road, #1050
Giving directions in Puerto Rico is mostly done by landmarks as opposed to physical address. Therefore the clearest way would be:
request being taken to the Marshalls on Avenida Ponce de Len
This will probably be enough, however should the driver need clarification, explain that Marshalls is after Parada 18 (diez y ocho), but before El Conservatorio de Musica
Ponce de Leon is a one-way avenue, once on it, help look for the Marshalls on the left side
After passing Marshalls on the left, take the 1st right onto Marianna St., itll be the 8th building on the right, #1050, just after the fork in the road
We are located near the Conservatory of Music and Marshalls department store off of Avenida Juan Ponce de Leon (Parada #16) and overlooking the Condado Lagoon.
Minutes away from Condado, Miramar and Old San Juan, the hostel is sheltered in an urban neighborhood, and you will be staying among everyday citizens of San Juan.
A great way for guests to experience city life and also to learn about the people and culture they are visiting.
