    We stayed in the two and three person rooms and were very pleased. The rooms were nice and very clean and everything was set up for us when we got there. Free coffee and hammocks overlooking the ocean make this the perfect place to unwind....More

    I spent 2.5 weeks at Hostel Clandestino and it was really hard to leave. There are so many great things about this hostel. The location to the beach is super convenient, a short stroll through a trail and you're there in less than 5 minutes....More

    This was definitely a great place for someone interested in a few days of relaxation. It is a 5-10 minute walk up hill to get from the beach to the hostel but I thought it was definitely worth it to get away from the restaurant...More

    About
    Hotel description
    Hostel Clandestino is a Hostel located at the famous surf beach "Playa Maderas" close to San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. It was founded by the two friends Juan, from Chile, and Stephan and Corinna, who are from Germany, in the year 2012. Our hostel consists of some beautiful cabins, a refurbished VW-Bus, a kitchen, a lounge and yoga platform, overlooking the green canopy of the Nicaraguan jungle. It's only a ten minute walk to one of the best beach breaks in Nicaragua and about 9 km outside of the bustling beach town San Juan del Sur. Our hostel is perfect for hanging out in a hammock enjoying the amazing view and the untouched Central American nature but also for surfing, walks at the beach, hiking or horseback riding. You won't be bored because here is plenty of stuff to do: We can help you with organizing surf lessons at Playa Maderas, horseback riding etc. You can also watch the wildlife (howler monkeys, tropical birds etc.) hanging out in one of our hammocks or enjoy the beautiful sunsets. We offer our guests simple but comfortable and clean rooms. They all have access to spacey balconies which are equipped with chairs and/or hammocks. The prices include access to our community kitchen, potable water and coffee. We have rooms available for 1-4 guests.
