The Surfing Donkey is a lively new hostel near the heart of San Juan Del Sur, with the largest hostel pool in town! With frequent events, pool parties, great facilities, and a welcoming staff, it's no wonder most guests end up extending their stay here. Many guests have even told us this was their best hostel experience in Central America!
Located only one block South of the famous Church/park in the center of town, we're just a short walk away from the biggest bars and beach. We're in a residential area, so we have fun in the daytime, then usually take people out to the happening bars to keep it quiet at night.
Aside from the large hostel pool, other features here include:
- A fully equipped kitchen free for guests to use
- Large bar with cheap delicious drinks and plenty of specials
- Brand new, thick mattresses
- Daily yoga classes and occasional workshops
- Upstairs deck with a great sunset view of the city
- Lockers with power outlets inside and security camera protection
- Free high quality local coffee, a late checkout time, wifi, and more
Come check us out, we guaranty once you're here you won't want to leave!
