Our Hostel


Hola Ola Hostel

We are much more than just a place to stay – to have a positive impact on our guests is the motivation for everything we do. Our mission is to help you advance as a surfer, to organize awesome social nights to meet travelers around the world, to give the best local advice to you in order to help you plan your trip and enjoy your experience in Nicaragua to the most!


Join our Family

We know that when you travel sometimes you miss home, that’s why when you stay at Hola Ola we do our best to make you feel like part of the family. Our friendly staff do their best to accommodate you and help you to discover the best time possible in San Juan Del Sur. Whether you need advice on a place to eat, the latest surf report or just a cold beer, we’re there to help you out!

Jump in the surf shuttle to share a few waves with new friends in the morning, or join us at one of our ‘family dinners’ at night, there’s always a fun group to join in activities with!

They say a dog makes a house a home, and we’ve got two big cuties that can’t wait to meet you! Ola and Jaws live at the hostel and will soon become your best friend, guaranteed!

*More of a lone wolf? We totally understand and respect that too. We have plenty of quiet space to chill out away from the party.




At Hola Ola we believe it is our responsibility to provide our guests with an exceptional environment that is not just safe and comfortable, but also provides great opportunities to meet other like-minded travelers and experience local culture. Our desire to provide the best possible experience for our guests shows in how many extend their stay and continue to keep in touch well after they’ve checked out.

We encourage interaction between guests through fun social events, hostel games, parties and surf trips. When you finally decide to leave Hola Ola, you can be sure you’ll leave with many new friends from all around the world.



And meet Ola, the coolest dog in town.
