        Wasn’t beach front but they have this unique thing that connects their guests. Weirdly, I became friends with almost everyone we were with. The staff were very friendly, coffee was great, affordable food and just a short walk to the beach. Drinking sessions every night. Definitely recommending this place 100%!!

        The Circle Hostel is a really nice place that was created with a lot of love. I met many wonderful people there. I especially liked the eco-consious aspects like the eco brics and the bamboo straws. The beach is five minutes walking distance and there a planty of nice restaurants and eateries around. Don ´t expect a perfectly clean space though and the mosquito nets should be fixed. But all in all I really had a perfect stay!

        Clean toilets and showers, nice stuff, really good vibes. When all beds are booked it must be super crowded, lil uncomfy beds. Even though the community area is really nice, I wished a lil more pillows or something to sit on.

        I like how chill the ambiance of the place. The common area is so refreshing and you could charge there and at the same time make new friends. I also like the food served, the prices are affordable and the dining area concept is so cool that while eating, you could interact with other guests. I just had one night there but I gained friends. I had chitchat with them and even went to few bars in San Juan and San Fernando. Great experience :)
