Local is Beautiful!

We are in Santurce (San Juan Arts District; downtown area), not a traditional tourist hub like Condado, Old San Juan or Isla Verde (short ride to them). Managed by its owner/creator, a local born and raised fellow with passion, respect and understanding of cultures. For the active and independent traveler. An award winner; one the 5Best hostels of the Caribbean by USA Today. On the other side of the highway from Condado.
