Perfect Location; Overlooking the Plaza Colon beautiful colonial building well kept with nice lobby! Wonderful sea breeze 6th 5th floor privates ; 4th floor Dorms


Large common areas with sitting and enjoyable balconies for all of the guest.

Look at our Specials in top tab we have many.

We are very simple, clean and basic accommodation


Tip : When Choosing your hostel; Its worth a couple dollars difference ...to not have to worry about transportation in the evenings;
Buses stop at 8 pm and taxis are very expensive..costing $20 each way after 8pm


Our Location is our #1 feature and you can see it by the hundreds of reviews that agree about this..Everything is a short walk...

Cafes/ Restaurants/ Bars / Beach( 5 min walk) bus terminal. many Tours Pick-up right in Plaza Colon

Dont be fooled when People say Old San Juan is too touristic....its actually the preferred place for locals to go out...
not only because of architecture and the variety; but because of it safety. You can feel absolutely safe to go out and enjoy the night life;

You can find Pampering Pina Coladas to 99 cents beer...

All equally in the enchanting illuminating Colonial atmosphere

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are a family business and humbly hope you enjoy the space we have created for budget travelers trying as best to make your trip memorable. You are the reason we exist and hope you can take a little of San Juan back home...
