We had to return, One of the most spectacular places to watch both sunset and moonset. This is the place where everybody knows your name. Forget Cheers, this is real. Megan (I hope I spell your name right). You are a dear, and you do, I never heard you not know a guest's name! Amazing. We came for Straya Days...

I had the best few days at this hostel!! Easily the most fun place to stay in San Juan del Sur. The view is beautiful, the rooms are clean, food and drinks are cheap, and all the staff members are lovely. I stayed for Sunday Funday which was a blast, and guests at Naked Tiger get 1/2 price tickets. I...

Didn't like the place, people having no respect for one another. The bar staff were alright but some were absolute trash. Ammenities wise the place was useless, toilets were gross and never really cleaned. Did get good bags there tho

They make an effort remembering all their guests names and really making them feel at home. The only downside with their lovely relaxed attitude is that other...

This place is awesome. They are incredibly accommodating. I called two hours before I showed up and Beau answered the phone, thick Aussie accent, "we got space on the balcony" "awesome, yeah!" Was my response. My girlfriends and I were sold after seeing the view from the balcony. We slept like babies out there. The pool is the right temperature....

I spent 11 weeks in Nicaragua and 8 at the naked tiger, this review may be a little bias but it's a true insight into the wonderful hostel that is 'the naked tiger'. My first two weeks of my 5 month trip were spent at the tiger where I stayed as guest, absolutely in love with the view, the accomodation...

The naked tiger was an awesome hostel. Good people, cheap food and drinks, great location for sunset, helpful and friendly staff who were accommodating at all times and good vibes all round. Our three night stay was thoroughly enjoyable and consisted of sunbaking, relaxing and a lot of partying. We definitely could of got stuck here but our itinerary didn't...
