Charlie's Hangar Surf Hostel was our choice in trying out hostels/dorms in San Juan, La Union. We initially thought of Vessel (fully-booked then) because we haven't heard of Charlie's yet when we got there. Hipster Flotsam didn't meet our non-existent standards so we decided to try out this place (and we were pleased!).

It's right before San Juan Surf Resort and you have to enter the small one-way street and see another resort first before you reach the place. You'll know it's Charlie's because of the humongous plane/s they have there. It's a pretty sight! They have one smack in the middle of their garden/common area and another one nearer the beach.

They have parking inside and around the area so your car has somewhere to stay. The place accommodates credit card transactions and they have wifi, too. The common area outside is spacious! Lots of chairs and they have cutesie bean bags where you can watch the sunset. They have direct access to the non-surfing side of the beach where you can swim without worrying a surfboard will hit your head and just a short walk along the shore will bring you to the surf areas, so it's definitely accessible and has prime logistics.

Their 3-storey building of dormitory-style accommodation has complete air-conditioning and electronic keycard style for entrance in the building and your rooms. They also provide locks and keys for your locker as you have the option to share one room with 3, 5, or 7 other folks. Do not fret if you forgot everything in your impromptu surf trip, they got you covered. The 2nd floor has around 7 shower stalls (they have hot water!!!!) and 3 toilets for male and another set for female. Each room has strong air-conditioning and a mini-balcony to see if your friend has already started the party outside.

No breakfast included though.

Price for Accomms:
1 bed in a 8-bed room - PHP 750
1 bed in a 6-bed room - PHP 850
1 bed in a 4-bed room - PHP 950

Will I recommend this place? Yes. The location is near the "commercial" part of surftown. The place is clean, the staff is accommodating and friendly, and if you're fine with communal T&B - this is a good place. They also hold events during long weekends so you can party where you sleep. 🙃
