There is an endless list of reasons why you should stay at the Surfing Donkey!!! I liked it so much i ended up staying for like 3 weeks!!
*Its super affordable, $7!! such a backpackers price.
*The pool, its big, refreshing and perfect for pool parties during the Sunday BBQ.
*The movie/lounge area. if your looking to relax or battle a hangover there are hammocks, beds, chairs and a BIG screen tv with tons of movie options. (all in English i may add)
* THE STAFF!! Troy, Andy, Mark and Saf are seriously some of the greatest people i met on my trip. No matter what you need these 4 are eager to help and full of great ideas.
*The kittens!! Pinto & Gallo are the cutest things EVER
*CHEAPEST laundry. its done the same day and smells great and CHEAP. like cheapoest of my entire trip.
*The Pub Crawl, its a blast- excessive drinking while playing games? need i say more?
*Sunday BBQ. a new ritual at the donkey, a way to meet people from other hostels. got some cookin skills? help out in the kitchen. makes for a better experience!! plus its just nice to help :)
I could go on forever.. its pretty much just the best option in San Juan Del Sur.
Oh!! bring ear plugs, it does get kind of loud in the morning with the church being right there..
