Taxi service is available 24/7 at the airport, price to get to the hostel is around $22 (1 to 4 passengers)
Getting to SJIHostel from the airport BY BUS
Buses at the airport come by about every 30 minutes from 6:00am to 8:00pm regular working days (Mondays to Saturdays)
*During Holidays it’s every 60 minutes. No service on Sundays. Oversized backpacks may not be allowed.
*Cost per ride is $0.75; coins only (no bills)
-Go to the upper level (departure terminal) of the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport and ask for the bus stop location.
-Once at the bus stop, take bus route # T-5 to Santurce (Bus Stop 22; near the Centro de Bellas Artes, Luis A. Ferre, LANDMARK).
-Upon exiting the bus, you will want to walk West on the same sidewalk where you stepped out, PR Rd 25 / Juan Ponce de León Ave. Go to the first traffic light you see. Once at the traffic light, use the pedestrian path to cross to the south sidewalk. Be careful; buses coming from the West are running against traffic in the South lane.
-At that intersection/traffic light, look for a street running vertically named Lloveras; it is right next to another road that leads to the highway.
-Take Lloveras street South until the next traffic light (Manuel Fernández Juncos Ave.). Check for the yellow gas station in front of you on the left side, “La Ultima Parada”.
-Cross Manuel Fernández Juncos Ave. (here Lloveras St. becomes Avelino Vicente St.), and keep going straight forward to your second RIGHT onto Calle América.
The hostel will be on your left near the end of the block. 1452 Calle América. Look for the simulated red carpet and the red, blue and white iron gate and just ring the bell.
Getting to SJIHostel by DRIVING
In addition to the provided coordinates, check for Calle América / Lafayette cross-streets on your gps or:
From the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, take San Juan exit, PR 26 West. Once at PR 26 west, (pass some 4 kilometers), look for the sign Calle San Jorge/Calle Del Parque/Avenida De Diego, (only one sign/exit for all three).
Take that exit and keep going to the 3rd traffic light (Avenida De Diego). Turn left (South) there.
Once at Avenida De Diego, keep going South to next traffic light (Avenida Juan Ponce de León) and make a right. Try to stay in the left lane. NOTE: the very left lane at Avenida Juan Ponce de León is an exclusive lane for buses, so the one next to it is the one you want to take.
At Avenida Juan Ponce de León go to the very first traffic light and make a LEFT at the second street to your left (check for the big wall with graffiti). NOTE: this intersection can be a little tricky. There are two left turns here. The first left turn will put you onto the highway. DO NOT turn here. The second left is immediately after the first and will take you South toward the hostel.
Keep going south until the next traffic light, (Avenida Manuel Fernández Juncos). Check for the yellow building (La Ultima Parada), a 24-hour gas station/convenience store.
Cross Avenida Manuel Fernández Juncos and keep going straight forward to your second RIGHT onto Calle América.
