We decided to leave a night early, no refund as the manager was nowhere to be found. There was a crazy lady living there at the time who tried to lock us out of the kitchen. Rooms were nasty and no one seemed to have been living there for weeks. Impossible to meet other people.

My party of eight stayed for twelve days and loved every minute of it! Quiet, private, and out of main traffic, Hostal Tropical allowed us to feel like we had rented an entire house instead of just three rooms! Rosie and the staff were very accommodating, helpful, and courteous. Minor issue with our reservation, which they were quick to resolve,...

This was a last minute find. All hotels were full because of the holiday weekend, however, this place was impeccable clean, staff was friendly and accommodating. There were no toiletries but we were told if we needed anything to contact the front desk, which is a couple minutes drive. For the price, I think this was an excellent place to...

I just have to defend this wonderful gem against the negative reviews. What nobody seems to mention is that the price is super super super low! So what do you expect at that price? It's a HOSTEL! mean if they were charging even what other budget hotels were charging - and believe me, you are not getting anything more from...

We loved the vibe of this hostel and spent most of our time hanging out downstairs, there isn't a lot to the area, but it's a good place to stop mid road trip. We had a private room upstairs and loved the cold A/C but didn't love not having any windows. All in all we would recommend this place to...

We arrived in the middle of the night, it took is a while to find the place. Friendly staff and simple breakfast included, staff helped us to find a (cheap) rental car. Good hostel in comparison to the price.

We arrived to an empty but wide open building. No one at the desk despite the hours saying 3:00-6:00 for check in times (it was 5:00). Finally after calling two different numbers, we reached someone who said she'd call the person who was supposed to be on duty. Right then, a truck drove up and after asking if he worked...

I'm torn between wanting to sing the praises of this amazing little place and keeping it quiet so it doesn't get overrun. I planned to stay in Arecibo, on the way from San Juan to Rincon, but didn't see any budget places on line. Hostal tropical came up and was right on the way, and it was the overwhelming positive...
