Stayed here for 1 night. A guy from the hostel came an picked me up in the airport as promised, and they drove me to the bus terminal the next morning. But their rates are way to high. Paid 20 $ for the airport pick up, 10 $ for the drive to the bus terminal and 15 $ for a...

The reason this hostel gets many mixed references is that there's not much options in San Pedro Sula, Honduras is clearly a country with severe difficulties, so they take full advantage of it, overpricing everything by western standards, I quite understand them, anyways I stayed on the dorm, there's a baleada restaurant close by with nice food and decent prices,...

I'm not sure what all the bad review are about. I ended up here because the TICA bus office was closed on a Sunday and the taxi driver recommended this place to buy my ticket. I ended up buying my bus ticket and decided to go ahead and stay here in place of the other hostel where I made my...

Stayed there with my girlfriend and we got a dorm room to ourselves-- nice touch. But it was SUPER hot, ill-ventilated, and smelled like the bathroom next to it. The staff didn't really know anything about SPS while we were there and just recommended that we stay in at night. Fair enough, but at least give us something to do...

The workers at this hostel (mainly two guys were at the main desk when I was there) were very helpful. They provided us with information on nearby museums and activities. They would always call a cab for us whenever we needed to get somewhere and would make sure we were safe by always locking the front gates and hostel doors....

The perfect place to test out your earplugs. We had to stay here because for some asinine reason Ticabus closed their office at the bus terminal, and now you have to go to this dive to buy tickets. Anyway, the guy at the desk went out of his way to tell us that it was a very quiet and tranquil...

We landed in San Pedro Sula not knowing how to get to the Hostel, we called Tamarindo and they were great in helping us find a reliable taxi.

The hostel is average. Security seems ok: the gate is always locked, the person on duty only opens the door after checking who's there. Wifi was good. The hostel is in a quiet residential area, which is good because it's quiet, but going downtown is a walk for 20-30 mins or a taxiride. But on the other hand, downtown SPS...

I stayed here for one night at the end of July, following a late flight. I arrived at the hostel at about 10pm and was greeted by a surly woman who was annoyed that I didn't have any lempiras (I wasn't able to order lempiras in England and there was nowhere to change money at the airport, given my arrival...

Over priced. Unhelpful staff. If you're heading to Nicaragua next they tell you they have booked a 4am taxi for the morning. Then the taxi does not show and they drive you to the bus station. But they still make you pay the $15US for a 10 min trip. Money making scheme.

Tamarindo Hostel, the first backpacker's place in San Pedro Sula.
