This place was referred tome by a friend. Upon arrival I loved it. It's located in the city center, at the beach in an old colonial building. What more to ask for?
Besides this, the owners are lovely and it feels as coming home.
For the included breakfast you can choose out of pancakes, eggs or yoghurt and fruit.

As a solo traveller, Hotel Estrella was a nice change of pace from the usual hostel atmosphere. The older and rustic building added character, and the central location, simplicity and cleanliness made it a nice home base for my week in San Juan del Sur. I had an lovely experience with the family who owns the hotel; they were friendly, willing to accommodate and provided a nice breakfast every morning! I would certainly stay there again.

Nice and cheap hostel with an amazing view, as it is right by the beach. the building is pretty old but very charming. The only minus is that the toilets and showers are downstairs which can be rather annoying at night. Breakfast is yummy and the owner was nice too. clean rooms but unfortunately without a bin. the balcony is a big plus though. would definitely go there again!

We've spent the past week here at Estrella and it feels like we've struck gold! Having only stumbled on the property in our quest to save money during our time in San Juan, we have been increasingly impressed by the charm and inherent beauty of his little gem. In some ways the hotel itself almost presents an opportunity to travel back through time to an era before the commercialisation of San Juan del Sur. It is currently owned and operated by the same family that built the property (the first hotel in SJDS) way back in 1929.

My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights at Hotel Estrella and really enjoyed our stay. Sure, the place is not the most modern (which is part of its charme) and lacks a communal kitchen, but we enjoyed the quiet and relaxed atmosphere, the three choices of included breakfast, our balcony with prime sunset view of the ocean and the low price. If you're looking for a party hostel, this is NOT the place to be! But we weren't interested in paying $16 bed in a 12 person dorm and partaking in all that Sunday Funday action. Would stay here again!
