  • 8.0.Very good

    My favorite of the 3 hostels I stayed at in Puerto Rico. Staff was friendly as were other travelers. Pretty clean but my bedsheet was all sandy so not the best. I liked the open and outdoorsy feel to how this place is set up. Really good location, $5-10 to get from/to the ferry via taxi. Separate bathrooms and showers so something was always open to use.

    Pretty good hostel

    Typical hostel. Very cool. Kitchen area with free coffee in morning. Private rooms available or dorms. They’re separated from each other, as are the bathrooms/showers for the dorms vs private rooms. Can park your golf cart in the gate so it’s more secure than on the street. Lazy jacks restaurant is part of the hostel and was one of the only food places open in esparanza on a weekday (not that great of food or service); the hostel was much better experience than the restaurant attached. Hostel on main road.

    Dismal WiFi

    The WiFi at the hostel is dismal. Beware, if this is something necessary for you. The signal is too weak at many parts of the facility to be of any use. Other guests echoed the same issue, and had to resort to walking over to the office in order to get close to the router for a usable wifi signal. That's inconvenient if your room is at the opposite side of the facility, which many are. Additionally, sometimes even being right next to the office and having a strong wifi signal, one still could not get onto the internet. With the owners away from the hostel, the work-stay staff could only offer a collective shrug in rsponse to complaints.

    The property is well located right on the water in the most happening location of the Island. The room and communal area was great. Great young vibe with all of the guests and staff members. Adam thanks for giving me the tour and ideas for the Island and making me well at home with the group staff!

    Proximity to ocean and restaurants. Lazy jacks is basically part of the property so the party is essentially here every night if that is your thing. We were in the private guest area so it wasn’t noisy and we were able to sleep. Mattress was thin and flimsy so that needs to change.

    It is a hostel, after all. As advertised. Even the private rooms are super tiny and almost no window. Banging of bathroom and kitchen doors all night. But great location in a wonderful spot with great little bar/restaurant next door. Easy access to Biobay tour.

    I came to this hostel a couple of years back and really enjoyed my experience then, but this time my experience was much different. When I first came a couple of years back, there was a nice common room for people to sit together (the one pictured), and I remember breakfast was pretty awesome - back then they had oatmeal, bread, and peanut butter/ jelly. I was excited to come back, but to my disappointment, the common room was no longer there, and aside from a small amount of instant oatmeal, there was no breakfast in the morning, despite the promise of breakfast when booking (and the signs saying there would be breakfast around the place). There was also mold on one of the pillows in our room. It was also very noisy. My friends couldn't sleep during the night because the neighbors were making very loud noises (of the moaning kind, if you know what I mean). Service wasn't great either -the owner was not the friendliest to us and seemed annoyed that we tried to check in early. He also asked us for $20 as a deposit for the bio bay tour, but it was never credited towards the fee for the tour. I do appreciate that it was budget friendly, but not sure if I would come back.
