Full Service Backpackers

Casa Oro was the first hostel and surf school in San Juan del Sur. Before that it was an obligatory spot on the historic gold route through Central America. Today, Casa Oro is the first eco-hostel in San Juan del Sur, and a founding member of the Casa Oro Group, a family of for purpose businesses in pursuit of regeneration. 

Just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach, Casa Oro offers a variety of budget-friendly accommodations designed with conscious backpackers in mind. We have both dorms (4-10 people) and private rooms available starting at just $13 per night. All dorm beds come equipped with colorful curtains for your privacy and oversized lockers for your security (bring your own lock). The entire space is filled with art, colorful murals, eco construction experiments, and chill vibes. The second and third floor boast a balcony that wraps around the entire street corner, great for people watching. Free delicious breakfast is included with your stay.

      “I’ve stayed here three time now, and I LOVE it. We temporarily live just outside of town and don’t have a car, so we use the shuttle weekly and stay one night at Casa Or once a week to get groceries, etc. I’ll start by saying: CONVENIENCE! They offer shuttle services to almost anywhere you want to go, at a fraction of the price the taxis are currently trying to charge. THE FOOD: Amazing. This place has a great menu and the food is quite good! We often choose to eat right there because the prices are fair and we enjoy it. It’s great for people-watching the street and drinking a few beers. Try the local breakfast in the morning too! ATMOSPHERE: We love all the employees. There are two ladies that always work up front, both of which are very friendly and helpful, and even speak fair english…”

      Guest Reviews

      “It was my first time staying in Nicaragua. I’m from the United States. The staff was phenomenal. The atmosphere is very chill and relaxing. While in town we heard nothing but great feedback about our place. They shared the owner is very passionate about customer service and the environment. I learned he’s very respected within the community. It was within walking distance to beach and right downtown. I felt very safe and had a great time!”

      Review from Hostelworld

      “I really enjoyed my stay here! Quiet at night, but close to the action. Best dorm I’ve stayed in, as all the beds have privacy curtains which makes a big difference. Lots of free purified water as well! Thanks for being great and affordable. I’d stay here again.”

      “Super great experience here! Helpful staff, clean & cold rooms, great access to shuttled & busses to beaches, airport, etc. I really enjoyed how laid back and chill the vibe was, especially coming off of a Sunday funday party hostel bender. Would totally stay again & recommend to all that ask :)”
