“Decent room, friendly staff, but you only get what you pay”
Reviewed 3 March 2009

This old style guest house located in the earth of Old San Juan is the right place to crush on for a couple of nights but without having the right to complain about something. For a queen bed in a very small room the rate is only $40 ($50 with AC), so it's definitely an inexpensive place to stay at. There's a kitchen and a refrigerator, and a supermarket is 5 minutes walking distance. BUT, i'll definitely suggest not to cook (I'm not so picky and in this place i was not feeling comfortable at all in cooking anything) but you can use the refrigerator to store your stuff. The staff is nice, the owner does not speak english but there are a couple of other people there that do, so don't worry if you do not speak spanish. The bathroom is just fine, nothing fancy, but at least clean. I did not see many insects, just some small ants in the kitchen and just one roarch the first night (but the bedrooms are definitely clean). I had the chance to look at another guest house in the area, and scary is the right word to describe it. So, as I said before, if you want to save money and be in Old San Juan this is definitely the right place to stay and if you're lucky you will also listen to a live performance of Sicilio, a singer-guitar-player that lives there. Have fun!
