4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel was located a fair drive away from San Juan Del Sur, but was close enough not to be really inconvenient. Check in was easy and they gave me a suite/private cabin which was fine for me but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with trouble walking as it was up about 10 flights of stairs, but the view was fantastic.The food was fine and the staff was friendly and helpful when necessary.

    The only downside is theta the area is far away from everything. Besides that is one of the best hostels I’ve ever been to.

    The hostel is amazing and the staff is great! They have so many things, from a yoga deck to a cinema room, it’s the nicest hostel I’ve ever stayed. People are pretty chill since everyone staying there is just relaxing, surfing and going to beaches around. The location is a little bit inconvenient but they’ve shuttles to the nearest city.

    Great Hostel/Hotel close to THE surf beach.

    My gf and I had a great time staying at Salena Maderas. It was a great place to unplug and relax. The beach is about a 10min walk away, but what a beach it is; if not one of the best surf beaches I've ever been to. It was clean, and the water was pristine. The staff were warm and friendly. The surf school was great, best instruction and guidance I've had thus far. Thanks Salena Maderas!
