Three of us came for 2 days ended up twice as long. The hostel is clean, excellently located and most importantly the friendliest staff ever. Rooms are basic but comfortable with a nice chill out area on the terrace. The owners are fluent in english and make you feel like part of the family going out of their way to...

Location is perfect: right in the center, next to the bus station; service of the 2 owners is very good. They provide great hospitality and both speak English very well (moved from Miami). Rooms and shared areas are clean. Perfect for a stay in San Juan del Sur.

I stayed in Hostel Nina in Feb 2017. This little find right in the heart of San Juan del Sur is good value for money for the backpacking traveller on a budget. The place was clean and secure. There is a kitchen for making breakfast and quick meals but eating out in the local market across the street from the...

A blue-hued oasis amidst the bustle and less than full hustle of the stout beach town of San Juan del Sur, Hostel Nina radiates energy like the spook of a wooden wheel in a well-heeled chariot. Serene when everything around is clod with fissures of commerce- a night within the blue walls surrounded by a disposition so cheerful you would...

We were supposed to stay there for one night but we had such a good experience the first day that we decided to extend our stay and ended up staying four night. San juan del Sur is known for the party atmosphere, and most people staying in the city is in the mood to party. After getting around all night...

My boyfriend and I found this hostel through one friend that had been staying there for few of days. From the moment we walked in we were welcomed by the two girls running it, with perfectly neat rooms and common areas. The kitchen is really complete and we enjoyed cooking with the girls pretty much at every meal. We were...

My friend and I spent 4 nights at Hostal Nina and were very happy with our stay here. The two girls that operate the hostal are incredibly friendly and helpful and have really made our experience in San Juan enjoyable. It's very close to the beach, and you're right next door to the market or anything else you need. Clean...

This is a great hostel, ideally located in the centre of town. The 2 lady's that run it were super friendly and advised us on buses and places to eat. The hostel itself is pretty basic and not very party like but there is enough of that around town. Top rooms with the hammocks were great. Kitchen access and you...

Very cute place to stay in San Juan. It's a small hotel, only a few rooms but nice if you are looking for a quite, clean place. The single fan in the rooms isn't a problem as it's very very windy in the town. The family was very kind and helpful. We stayed in the two upstairs rooms, had our...

“We stayed in the first room on the right, just next to the kitchen. There's a window that leads out into the little foyer area, and we can hear people talking when they come through, and they can probably hear us, but so far has not been a problem.”
