Best place to meet new people from around the world and enjoy the Sunday funday! The view is spectacular and clearly one of the best in San Juan del Sur. Good food and good service. Everyday there is something special to enjoy the hostel.

the hostel itself is pretty good! you're greeted with friendly staff and a welcome drink. the rooms and common areas are cleaned daily but if you wake up before the cleaners do, it's a huge mess. but it's a party hostel so you have to understand that. the pool is also nice and seems to be cleaned frequently.. only issue...

Best hostel I have been to during my three months of travel! The staff is great, the view over san Juan from the swimming pool is beautiful and the people you meet here are awesome. During the weekdays you can relax here and in the weekend days you can party enough. Of course the infamous sunday funday is a highlight...

If you're looking for a party hostel then naked tiger is certainly it and more. However, it's super far away. There are shuttles that go back and forth between the naked tiger and san juan once every hour but imo its super limiting if you're trying to explore san juan del sur and the surrounding beaches. I didn't have this...

Travelled for 7 weeks and the Naked Tiger was by far my favourite hostel. Ten of us stayed here over a Sunday Funday weekend. It's definitely a party hostel and they're more than accommodating to those suffering from hangovers. We had a Harry Potter marathon on the Monday on their big projector! There inviting staff, quick food, beautiful view and...

Really enjoyed my stay at Naked Tiger, a perfect mix of great people, fantastic views and socialising. Would recommend to anyone who's coming to San Juan. The shuttles go regularly to the centre so it is no problem staying up in the hills.

Went to Naked Tiger last night as part of Sunday funday. Was really disappointment with the extremely poor service. One barman was only serving people who would tip him and often stood in front of a busy crowd for minutes refusing to serve anyone. Then once you eventually got your drink they watered the mixer down. So essentially you were...
