Value For Money

One of the best hostels in which I have stayed, the atmosphere is another level really friendly and the hosts make you feel at home. I'll recommend this hostel without hesitation. If you go to San Juan del Sur you have to stay at Hola Ola.


The perfect hostel! Great place for solo travelers. Met so many nice people here. Hostel organises events every day and provides free coffee and water for all guests. A little outside the town which is a plus. Only place to stay while in San Juan


Such an amazing place and hostel experience! Great people, delicious food, beautiful views and an amazing pool! They made us feel like family and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in San Juan!
