We were out travelling for three months and this was by far the best hostel we stayed at. When we first arrived we got welcomed by the three guys working in the bar, showing us around and learning us about the buffalo rule (you're not allowed to drink with your right hand) and so one. Left our luggage in our...

You'd be nuts not to stay here! It's bloody awesome! Best vibe, amazing pool, awesome rooms, rad owners and the most epic Sunday funday pres in San Juan (and by pres I mean Monday through Sunday non stop tonãs and partying).

I've been to Casa twice and loved it both times. It's owned by an Aussie couple, Carla and Fred, but I think Buzz, the pet spider monkey, gets a say more often than not! It's got an awesome party vibe, a mixture between crazy drunken family BBQ and spring break. The infinity pool offers a beautiful view of the hills...

The view is amazing, the atmosphere is great and it's a party every night. Unfortunately they have bedbugs. As I heard from others, and you can see in the reviews the problem is going on for months. People are sleeping outside and putting their bags on the roof. The owners really trying to get rid of the bedbugs by spraying...

Thank you for your review re our hostel and the positives you mentioned. Regarding the bed bugs we have been fighting a few isolated cases of bed bugs bought in by travellers. We believe now we have formulated a solution to avoid the problem in the future and eradicating the bugs with a solution that is harmless to humans but...

Fantastically run and maintained hostel in beautiful San Juan Del Sur. The owner is so accommodating and goes out of his way to ensure you are happy and comfortable in his hotel. If you want a place close to the beach then this is not the spot but the infinity pool more than makes up for it. Good bar and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa de Olas, is a unique place to stay, blending the best of Bed & Breakfast, hotel and hostel together to create the Casa de Olas experience. We are situated on a hilltop over-looking the town and bay of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Our location provides endless views over the Pacific ocean with spectacular sunsets nightly. Casa De Olas is designed for the more discerning backpacker and budget travelers who are looking to find an oasis of luxury at affordable prices. In total we have 10 rooms and can accommodate a maximum of 75 guests at any one time. We have dorm rooms that can accommodate from 4-6 people with one room housing 14. Casa de Olas is designed for those traveling on a budget or in groups. All rooms are spacious with en-suites. We think staying a little out of town is the best way to experience all that San Juan del Sur and the surrounding area has to offer. Australian couple Fred and Carla are your hosts bringing a wealth of knowledge from their native land with a long resume in the hotel and restaurant industry. Fred and Carla are warm and always ready to give a recommendation. Take a look at our website, TripAdvisor and Facebook pages to find out more and we look forward to having you stay with us soon. ... more   less
