What else could you want?!

There is nothing like dropping a heavy backpack on the ground, grabbing a bite to eat, and coming 'home' to a place with a warm, friendly atmosphere and chatting, resting, and absorbing the backpacker experience with other travelers. Visiting 'La Isla Del Encanto' is an experience of a lifetime and Island Time Hostel will certainly make your visit more affordable and enjoyable. Stay within a colorful & lively San Juan neighborhood, meet locals as well as others exploring the island, immerse yourself in the Puerto Rican culture, soak up the sun on the beautiful beaches, and maybe even sip the day away at the bar across the street as you practice your spanish.

Only steps away from Condado Beach, Condado Lagoon, Miramar and right outside of Old San Juan! Nestled within the community of Alto del Cabro, Island Time provides not only accommodation and easy access to the refreshing Atlantic Ocean waters, but also exposes guests to the real Puerto Rico—food, culture, people, and more! Ask about our cuisine trip, 'El sabor del Barrio,' on which our staff take you to the best local places to eat, dance salsa and bachata, and even practice yoga on the beach.

We are located in the heart of San Juan!

Directions are from San Juans Luis Muoz Marn International Airport (SJU)

By Bus:

You will need $1.50 in change, two buses $0.75 each, bills are not accepted. Oversize luggage is not allowed (you may try :) Buses at the airport come by about every 40 minutes from 6:00am until 9:00pm daily (holidays and weekend schedules may alter).

At the upper level of the airport find the bus stop by Terminal E (near the Chapel)
Take either bus route 40 or 50 to Isla Verde, ask to be let off at Dennys
Transfer to bus route T5 west towards Santurce, ask to be let off at Parada 16
Walk block and turn right onto Calle Marianna
Itll be the 8th building on the right, #1050, just after the fork in the road

By Car:

(Follow these instructions, GPS systems, maps & google maps dont work great in PR and confuse our address with another one)

Take highway 26 west
Drive 8 Km (approximately 5 miles) to Roberto H. Todd (PR 2) - exit on the right.
At the traffic light turn left onto Roberto H. Todd Ave.
Keep in the right lane, and att the 2nd traffic light turn right onto Ave. Juan Ponce de Leon.
Turn right on the 6th street, Calle Mariana
Itll be the 8th building on the right just after the fork in the road, #1050

By Taxi:

Giving directions in Puerto Rico is mostly done by landmarks as opposed to physical address. Therefore the clearest way would be:
request being taken to the Marshalls on Avenida Ponce de Len
This will probably be enough, however should the driver need clarification, explain that Marshalls is after Parada 18 (diez y ocho), but before El Conservatorio de Musica
Ponce de Leon is a one-way avenue, once on it, help look for the Marshalls on the left side
After passing Marshalls on the left, take the 1st right onto Marianna St., itll be the 8th building on the right, #1050, just after the fork in the road
