Planned on 4 days, stayed 3 weeks. Best atmosphere of any hostel I've stayed at. Always a great crowd, social atmosphere, great common area outside. You can buy beer there or bring your own, Ping pong table, tv room, clean swimming pool, right on the beach, hammocks to chill out in all day under palm trees. Can't beat this place

Hostel Yajure was an amazing place to stay--I stayed here with a girlfriend of mine at the beginning of our trip in Nicaragua, and we absolutely loved it. We planned to stay for only a couple of days, and extended it to four since we were having so much fun. The atmosphere at Hostel Yajure is what makes it so...

My friend and I stayed at Yajure for a couple days at the beginning of our trip. It was the best hostel we stayed at in Nicaragua. The hostel is exactly what we wanted out of a hostel - really relaxed and fun. The whole place has a really awesome vibe. Chely is laid back and fun to chill with....

The beachfront location and the people who run the place (even oscar) are unreal, the pristine pool and the open space living were the nicest and cleanest we saw in 5 months of travelling through Central America. The music and the chilled out vibe were all-time. Chely and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Didn't matter what we wanted,...

Living in Costa Rica, I travel to San Juan del Sur often for a little vacation from my life of vacationing. The first place I ever stated at was Yajure and have stayed there ever since. It is located on the beach at the North end, about a five minute walk from the busier part of town, which is really...

My wife and I travel quite a bit, but have never been in a hostel, because we're newly weds and like our privacy ;) But we met up with some friends in san juan who have stayed here before so we stayed in a shared room and separate bunks. We felt so safe and I actually left my macbook out...

I had a really bad experience here. It's too bad because the hostel (a converted house) is really beautiful. Unfortunately it's in kind of a dangerous spot, and the manager is very moody. When I was staying here, two of my friends got robbed in the same spot on the way to the hostel. I also heard stories of two...
