Hostel Pachamama is in the prime location in San Juan Del Sur and is one of the most popular party hostels.
Pachamama is located quite centrally in San Juan del Sur and is close to the main beach and the main strip with all of the bars to party in of a nighttime. It is also only a short distance from the main street, where you can find all of the restaurants, food, and other amenities that you might need during your stay here. You can get a shuttle to the other beaches in San Juan Del Sur from the downtown region and it is close to where they run the buses to the Costa Rican border.
Rooms and Bathrooms
There are different types of rooms here at Pachamama. You will find a larger dorm, which costs less, or smaller, four-person dorms that are equipped with air conditioning and private bathrooms. The rooms can be a little crammed, as they are small, but the beds and linen are good quality and the bathrooms are well maintained and modern. The cleaners do a great job of keeping everything in top order.
The whole reception area in Pachamama is the social hub. It contains a bar in one corner, which can at times get pretty crazy and out of control. There is also a pool, plenty of tables and chairs for sitting down and socializing, couches in a chill-out area, and a computer for communal use of the internet if you do not have a device to get Wi-Fi. Each day of the week there is a different social activity going on in the hostel and these are written up on the chalkboard in the front of the reception area. They also run shuttles to different beaches some days -- this is great to take advantage of, too.
This hostel hosts the famous "Sunday Funday" Pool crawl around San Juan, which is one of the most popular events in town. The staff are friendly and helpful and get among all of the action going on here. If you are after an amazing social environment and a hell of a party, this is your hostel -- especially on weekends!
