It vas a great place! Had some air conditioning and the check in was easy and they explained everything! They have reunions for all the people who stay at the hotel, very nice! The view it's amazing, never seen something so stunning like the view from San Juan at night! Excellent hotel in a great place!

My brother and I stayed here and we would definitely stay here again! The rooms were decently sized, and the facilities weren't spotless, but for less that $20 a person per night we got way more than we expected. We also did bar hopping with a group that worked out of the hostel. It was so incredibly fun! We met...

You will be asking for a refund if you take the Carmelita Bio Bay Tour and I am in the process of getting mine. I paid $85 + tax to be dumped on a speck of land that can be covered on foot in under 2 minutes. You're given kids snorkeling gear [I'm over 30] and told to swim around...

If you like luxury, please do not waste your time here. This is a bare bones place to stay. That in mind I LOVED this place. I met the owners of the hostel when they were passing out breakfast. It is family owned, run and cared for. This hostel is PRIME location for everything! Let me list off things that...

I stayed four nights here and overall had a very pleasant stay, met tons of other female solo travelers. Stayed in a female dorm of 4 beds, the place is clean, beds and not bad. They provide towels and sheets everyday. The view from the balcony is awesome. Only complaints are the outlets in the room, there was only 1,...

At my age I usually don't stay in hostels, but we had a one-night layover before proceeding to Vieques, so I booked here. I was a bit nervous because a lot of the reviews said the elevator was broken, and in fact the hostel notes in its booking information that it is not always working. It is up five or...

Old San is expensive, so maybe I just expected to much for a 65$ room... It's clean, location is great. but that's pretty much it. I was on 6th floor. Room was only a little bigger than the bed. AC was so noisy that I had to turn it off which meant sweating all night. Wifi didn't work at all...

I have stayed here three times, and each in a different room. I definitely recommend the deluxe full room. The shared bath was right next door to my room, it's a hostel, in a historical building, so we do share a bath. The kitchen and dining area was beautifully furnished, and large. I loved spending the evening out on the...

I was on the fence after my stay at Posada. While you can not beat the location or the price there are some downfalls. The free wifi only worked for a few minutes of my 6 day trip and everyone I talked to had the same problem connecting. The beds were as flat as flat can get so it was...
