3 Best Hostels in San Juan, Puerto Rico – Rooftop Camping and Bohemian Flair
It’s time to venture to the capital of Puerto Rico to discover the 3 absolute best hostels in San Juan. Are you ready? Be prepared for a super duper 5 Star Hostel and rooftop spaces that allow you to appreciate this huge city from above.
If you’re keen for nightlife, San Juan won’t let you down with its selection of bars, nightclubs and casinos. Either that or soak up the cobblestoned Old Town and sweeping ocean views from a fortress.
Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Tourism Tax: Note that there is a 9% tourism tax which is not always included in the room price. Our #1 hostel Santurcia Hostel & Bar, for instance, adds this percentage to the room price on arrival. Be sure to check this before making a booking with your chosen hostel.
What is seriously the best hostel for solo travellers in San Juan, Puerto Rico?
Well, if you’re a female solo traveller we cannot rate our #1 hostel Santurica Hostel & Bar highly enough. The security is great and there are female dorms available. No doubt you’ll easily make friends on the rooftop!
If you’re a solo traveller that likes bigger dorms and rooftop views of the beach (who doesn’t?!) then we suggest staying at Nomada Urban Beach Hostel. The central location is super handy, too.
Party Hostels in San Juan
Although San Juan is the biggest city in Puerto Rico, it doesn’t have much in the way of party hostels!

With that in mind, we suggest staying at Santurcia Hostel & Bar and taking advantage of the close location to nearby bars and party atmosphere.
Before heading out make sure you get the social vibes flowing on the rooftop – there is a bar here selling drinks and snacks.
