Hostal Suenos del Mar Sep 14, 2016
San Juan del Sur become a must stop place for me anytime I cross border to Costa Rica or the other way around. And every time I try to stay in another hotel or hostel so that you guys have variety of reviews and options when coming this way. Hostal Syenos del Mar changes its location fairly frequently and now they are on the edge of the town (which is only 2 blocks away from center hehehhe) in the one floor building on the side of the road. Location is fine for the reason that you can easily go anywhere in the town or catch the bus in less than 5 minutes, but bad thing is that morning buses are a bit loud when taking people to work around 6am… Now, it is totally cool to get out of the sleeping quarters early morning, enjoy the beach, nice walks or any kind of activity before sun brings scorching heat… and also, there are only few people, fisherman and few more surfers that share your early endeavors, therefore it is the perfect time . They do have coffee available all day, but it is instant coffee and not the good one either. There is no breakfast included in the price, and the price of this hostels dorm is very cheap. I think that I paid only $6 for this pleasure.

There are two large dorms that I could see, and few “private rooms” in the yard area. Dorms are a bit dark and there is no much air movement. Good thing is that they have AC that works at night so you can sleep and breathe… Without that AC this place would be total dump and worth avoiding… There are small lockers to use, but your larger stuff is left in the dorm. It made me a bit conscious and uncomfortable, but everything survived…

Entrance of the hostel is protected by iron bars and that is the security at all times. They do not close the door because air through the house is needed. Little kitchen has basic things to make and prepare stuff. Yard is the nicest thing about this place and it is fairly spacious. There are couple hammocks strung on the trees and long table that most of the time has people hanging around. The worst thing would be bathrooms and showers. They are made in the corner of the yard, and they are made by the person that hated their job and did not have any materials to do that job. Pretty much, it is just a few pieces of wood, some leafs, plastic, funky doors and there you go. Couple sinks are outside in the yard area and that is just fine because usually people cramp the bathrooms when they brush their teeth, or shave…

Staff is not too excited about anything, just some surfer dudes that are there for free bed and maybe some moneys. Internet is fine, especially in the hammock area ehehhe.

All in all, it is not really recommendable place. Look for the better hostel in town, but if there is nothing else left (and it happens), you’ll survive them for couple days.
