The simple and unassuming Oceana Hostal Playero has hidden charm. Leather couches and Van Gogh-like swirls decorate the ceiling of the boutique hostel's artsy lounge. A shady stone patio with hanging vines overlooks the pool and waterfall, the perfect spot for enjoying the complimentary continental breakfast. The ocean can be glimpsed from the rooftop deck, as can stunning Condado Beach, just two blocks away. Oceana is the also the only smoke-free, vegetarian-oriented hostel in San Juan. All rooms have private baths and air conditioning.

 

Dining

The rustic red walls and warm pendant lights of the PuraVida Vegetarian Restaurant give the restaurant at Oceana Hostal Playero a warm, casual feel. Expect tapas such as portobello kebobs on grilled polenta and pan-seared tofu in a ginger and coconut sauce. Main dishes include veggie paella and veggie "lamb" in a mint and ginger curry. There are also some fish dishes on the menu. Dessert choices include ChoKahlúa, chocolate cake topped with almonds and strawberries and soaked in Kahlúa and coffee cream.

Rooms

The 17 simple, cozy rooms at Oceana Hostal Playero have tropical touches such as palm-covered bedspreads, ceiling fans, wood blinds and rattan furniture. Modern tile work with wood accents and a basket of toiletries greet guests in the bathroom. Guest rooms and suites have windows overlooking the courtyard or Fortaleza Street. Some have private terraces. All have private baths and air conditioning.

Not what it seems

After reading the reviews I thought I was getting a good deal. Completely the opposite. Service was bad none of the outlets worked to plug in my phone. The only one that worked was being occupied by the tv and ac. Bed was hard and automatically started to scratch everywhere. When I went to complain they basically said you get what you paid for. An when I ask for a partial refund because I didn't even stay the night they said no. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Good for the cost

It was a single room with a small bathroom attached. There is nothing spectacular about the accommodations other than it is a place to bath and sleep. The location to the beach is amazing, especially considering the cost. The bathroom had a slight musty smell to it but considering the age of the building and the tropic climate it is in I was not surprised. It seemed that sand was everywhere, including the bed, but given how close the hotel is to the beach this too is to be expected. Overall, I would go there again if my primary focus was to spend time on the beach and not in the hotel room.

Cost effective + good location for beach

Appears to be well run by a caring owner, but horribly understaffed. One person trying to serve food while they check in guests. No breakfast available even at 8 am due to late staff. Continental breakfast is useless if you can't eat before you go to the airport. No shuttle bus. Locks on doors are a joke. No internet in rooms. Other than that, it was great!

Would Not Recommend

No cups, wash cloth, hair dryer or iron in room. Sink stopper missing. Mirror too low for 5'10" man shaving. Breakfast sparse and charged for extra coffee and orange juice refill.

Very romantic ambiance

This petite hotel has a great romantic ambiance. The hotel areas are very confortable and very tropicals. Freshness in all areas, with lot of vegetation makes the area very romantic. Room, bar and restaurant are very clean and confortable. The hotel has an excelent location. Near all tourist area and very close to the beach. As a matter of facts, only a few meters apart. The restaurant food is good and the value for money is excellent.
