Top tips for finding San Juan hostel deals

  • Most of the hostels in San Juan are located either in Old San Juan or Santurce on the southeast side of the city. Old San Juan is full of historic landmarks like Museo de las Americas, San Juan Bautista Cathedral, and the San Juan National Historic Site, while Santurce offers the Museum of Contemporary Art of San Juan and Central Park of San Juan. Routes 1, 25, and 26 connect both areas by car, while the Puerto Rico Metropolitan Bus Authority and Tren Urbano are modes of public transportation that run throughout the city.
  • Women traveling as a group should check out Santurcia Hostel & Bar, which offers a female-only dorm; there are also mixed dorms if the women’s dorm is unavailable. Located on Avenue de Diego in the Art District of Santurce, it is very close to San Juan International Airport (SJU), and the Luis A. Ferre Performing Arts Center is minutes away on foot. Los Cidrines and Hen House are two eateries within walking distance of Santurcia Hostel & Bar, along with The A Bar.
