Great location95% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Located in Plaza Colon on the 3rd floor, come and enjoy an amazing view and spacious shared apartment! With running water and power. Just 15 minutes from the airport and a 5 minutes walk to the cruise ships! The room is a little small, but ideal to just and explore. Queen bed with brand new AC. No wifi in rooms, but you can access free wifi. Apartment comes equipped with a lovable cat and dog. Still new, so it needs a little TLC. 2 other rooms available; inbox for availability!

Gabriela's place is within sight of the cruise ships, centrally located in Old San Juan, and right across from a park. Nice cool room, friendly cat, local restaurants close by and the free trolleys stop almost right at her front door. Narrow and step stairs for elderly, however…

Great location near old San Juan, the room was quiet & we appreciated the AC. We were only there for one night and it was spartan but great value if you’re ok with sharing a space. Super cute pets ❤️

We had a great stay at Gabriela's place. The balcony is incredible, and the location (with an easy in and out) couldn't have been better.

Terrific location in the heart of the Old Town within walking distance of restaurants, shops and everything we wanted to see. Also we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and relaxing and enjoying the view of the Plaza de Colon. Gabby was very helpful and her local knowledge was invalu…

Gabriela is amazing at hosting her place! She’s very understanding and will quickly respond to any questions or resquests. The location is great if you’re lookin for a great place to stay close to the cruise port or want to tour around Old San Juan. The price was very resonable.

Just as a head’s up this is a “hostel style” accommodation. Not the cleanest and think you could find more value in other spaces close by. What turned me and my roommate off personally was that we found a toenail that did not belong to us in the bed (all our nails were painted, t…

Response from Gabriela:
Hello Brittany, I apologize for the toenail. I do change the sheets in between every reservation with clean sheets and towels. My only explanation for that was that the toe nail could’ve gotten stuck and I didn’t realize it. Again I am sorry for that. As for the mattress, it is a few years old, but it doesn’t mean that it’s not good, and I include extra padding with it. As for the hostel style accommodation, it is stated in the listing description that the common spaces like the bathroom and kitchen and living rooms are shared, but if you compare the prices with other hostels, obviously the actual hostel is cheaper because in a hostel you only pay for a bed. With me you pay for a PRIVATE room, not only that but the towels arent cheap flimsy towels that you find in hostels or cheap thin pillows and sheets. I am continuously investing, slowly, in each room and shared spaces to try and make every guest feel at home and not a hostel.
