"NomadLife Rocks"

    March 2018

    Amazing wifi, views, food and people. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Got tons of help from other Nomads and they've helped me fast track the launch of my app. Wifi doesn't go out even when the power does, super chill atmosphere (amazing playlists! ;) ) and new friends all over the place. I stayed in the dorm for a week, which was on par with the price I was paying, hadn't planned to stay longer but wasn't ready to leave so I upgraded to their Upgraded Dorm and stayed another week, only left because I had to fly back for a wedding and still thinking about heading back there! Super legit place. Keep on killin' it NomadLife!!

    "See You Soon NomadLife!!"

      February 2018

      I just left NomadLife a few days ago and had an absolutely amazing experience! Absolutely gorgeous views & wifi was completely solid and also on battery back up, so even when the power did drop the signal wasn't impacted at all, really useful for the calls that I do (all video and no issues!). As for the community, it was really inspiring to be surrounded by so many positive, passionate people all in one place. Everyone is working on amazing things and are super happy to share knowledge and help each other out. At the start of my stay the regular Community Manager, Sam, had been held up in another country due to some immunization paperwork issues (annoying... been there) and wasn't around and the Community Manager in her place just was not up to par. As soon as Sam and her team of regular staff returned, what a turn around! NomadLife is absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to go back. My initial trip was a one week scouting trip, but I'll now be returning for 3 months in the fall. See you soon NomadLife and thank you so much for everything!!

      "Best co-working co-living space in Nicaragua"

        February 2018

        NomadLife welcomed me into an amazing community of hard-working intelligent individuals! The place is stunning, the view is amazing and the activities are on point. The family dinners are fantastic, vegan and vegetarian options, and after there are games, organized yoga events, open mic nights, and nomadtalks. The place is busy with amazing people and things to do! The rooms are gorgeous, each bed is provided with a little comfy blanket as well as nice pillows and welcome cards (and the best air con in san juan!) There's a number of places to work, in a traditional air conditioned quiet office, on bean bag chairs, in a gazebo, and at a kitchen table. There's a mixture of english speaking and spanish speaking staff, which I liked because I felt immersed into the culture. You never actually have to leave the place! I will definitely be coming back again and again - the vibes here are too great not too!

        "Great concept, non-existent management"

          February 2018

          I stayed at Nomad Life for 2 weeks in Jan/Feb 2018 after finding them online – the website makes the place look amazing and I was looking forward to my stay. Pros: The property is in a great location, right in town and the view is AMAZING. The people I met during my stay were amazing and I am so thankful for these relationships. The concept is great. But as for the accommodations and management – things are a mess. The place is dirty, understaffed and their reservation system is worthless. When I booked, I learned their online calendar is wrong so I was moved to different rooms (and then again b/c of other mix-ups) and then when I arrived, it’s like they weren’t expecting me. I was eventually shown to a room by the maintenance guy and given a tour of the property (in Spanish). The next day, I was move to the 6 bed dorm (which I had never booked) because a new person had arrived and I had to be moved – no reason, that was just the way it was. This 6 bed dorm is dark, too small and the worst beds I’ve ever slept in (to their credit, they did replace the mattresses while I was in this room but other guests had previously complained and been sleeping on those mattresses for weeks). Other advertised services are not available – there is no yoga, no airport shuttle service (they refer you to other companies), no Nomad Talks and few structured activities unless they are organized by the guests staying in the house. The activities offered by Nomad Life were often last minute and more social/drinking focused which didn’t appeal to me as much since I was here to work. They have a meal plan (vegan & vegetarian only) but often ran out of food so I stopped using it after a few days. And you learn all of this through conversations with other guests – their staff tells you nothing and the few signs on the property are incorrect. It wasn’t until I was moved into the 4-bed dorm about 5 days into my stay that I saw any printed house rules. But no one enforces these rules so they are pretty worthless. They also oversold the day co-working passes during my first week so the space was overcrowded and noisy. Since there was no staff on property, the daily co-workers would take over the place w/o restrictions to the determent of the guests staying there. I communicated my concerns about my reservation being mixed up, the beds and the lack of a welcome to the staff – they professed sincere apologies but took no responsibility, didn’t offer to fix things or follow-up. I understand things go wrong but my experience was the norm during my 2 week stay – most of the other guests had messed up reservations, arrived to the same “welcome” I did and were told the room they booked was not available – and sometimes no bed was available despite their confirmation so they were forced to stay elsewhere. I heard horror story after horror story. This created a lot of unnecessary stress during my stay as you have to fill in other guests and re-live these frustrations with each new person. You get the feeling that Nomad Life just doesn’t care and eventually you give up. I really hope they can turn things around – again the concept is awesome and the people you meet are a saving grace. But I would not stay here again which is super unfortunate. Nomad Life needs to fully staff the property with people experienced in hospitality and update the reservation system so it works as well as living up to the promises of their offerings on the website (or removing these).

          "The place to be"

            October 2017

            Their is most likely no better place to stay in San Juan Del Sur, let alone work. The wifi is unreal, the work space is great, the people are top notch and I am able to seamlessly perform my job. I also love getting to work alongside lots of interesting and successful nomads. 10/10 recommend

            "It's even better than it looks"

              September 2017

              First thing's first: The wifi is fast and reliable, there's plenty of places to work – from conference tables (inside and out) to couches, rocking chairs and poolside. The large property makes it easy to find a place for calls and alone time. The coffee is awesome and is always available. Keep in mind that this is Nicaragua and power outages happen... They rarely happen during working hours and NomadLife's generators keep you going. The view is INCREDIBLE and the pool is fantastic. But the best part are the people. There's something about this place that attracts the absolute coolest, passionate, creative, fun, and intelligent people. And since there's always something going on (from power lunches to happy hours) it's really easy to connect and learn everyone's story. The wellness program and meal plan were just kicking off during my stay and already awesome. Yoga and a bomb (and healthy) breakfast is how I want to spend every morning before work! San Juan Del Sur is a cool surf town with just the right amount of things to do. It is a drive to surfable beaches so expect that. There are shuttles for $5-$10 depending on the beach and on weekends a crew usually heads out from the house. The rooms are comfortable, AC runs strong and a towel is provided. Also, the property is incredibly well-kept. I honestly can't believe this place exists. This is paradise. I absolutely cannot wait to come back.

              "Got Me Coming Back"

                June 2017

                After a quick week scouting trip, I booked my ticket right back after a month back in the U.S. A pleasure staying up to date and seeing some familiar faces on their weekly "Nomad Talks" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2ghbcyv-24 I was able to snag this little video that should do the beauties more justice. I'll add some to this review after what I'm confident will be a stellar month in San Juan!

                "A Genuinely Amazing Place to Work"

                  May 2017

                  Practically speaking, the house has everything necessary for productive working and a phenomenal time - reliable internet, plenty of working space, coffee, good food and bars, a world-class view, an infinity pool. What really sets it apart from a hostel or an Airbnb is the unique community of driven and intellectually curious individuals that you have the opportunity to interact with on a daily basis in an absolutely stunning location. In my two months at the house, I met startup founders, internet growth hackers, an Australian novelist, a Brazilian sales guru, emerging logo designers, and more. You just don't get that in many places, and it's really what motivated me to significantly extend my stay at the house. The staff is also pretty incredible. They are helpful in all the important ways and an integral part of the community that exists within the house. They are top notch at taking feedback and using it to improve the experience for everyone. About a month into my stay, they noticed that people were looking for additional ways to collaborate and learn from one another. This feedback led to a new weekly speaking series where members of the house have the opportunity to present to the group on topics of interest. The talks have been really amazing and are something I looked forward to every week. Overall, highly recommend staying here and will definitely return!

                  "Great People, Great Vibes, Great Location/View!"

                    May 2017

                    Such a STUNNING location, great atmosphere and view. Like nowhere else I have stayed. Beautiful pool and lots of comfy hammocks. The internet is the best in SJDS, about 90% reliable (weather and other factors can have an impact, but after all it is Central America) and super fast. Wednesdays power goes out in town but the house has a generator. I met some of the most kind, cool, inspiring and smart people here- it had such a good vibe. It attracts great people! It was great for business learning, networking and personal growth- I definitely made friends for life. The house truly feels like home and the staff and other Nomads became family. It needs a couple things to make it a little more accommodating for travelers (cubbies, hangers, places to lock belongings), but I know the amazing Nomad Life team is aware and working on these. They are still fairly new and are doing a kick-ass job. Can't wait until they open more locations!! Thanks guys for everything <3

                    "Paradise for digital nomads in Nicaragua!"

                      May 2017

                      NomadLife is a beautiful co-working house in San Juan del Sur. It also functions as a co-living space, and I am coming to the end of a one month stay. The biggest thing I have gotten out of my time at NomadLife is the importance to me of living in community. During my time here, I have only noticed the occasional person coming to the house only to work during the day. The vast majority have been people living in the house and working. I think the community aspect is a big strength of NomadLife. It seems to attract the type of person who has big ambitions and also seeks to enjoy life to the fullest. That makes for a great environment. The best way to think of NomadLife is a community house, rather than a hotel, guesthouse or hostel. There isn't a traditional check in process, but there is always a friendly face to welcome you. There were one or two times when someone didn't have a key to the front gate, but there is always someone to let you in and help you out when you need it. That is one of the things I have come to love about NomadLife - that it cultivates a spirit of true co-living, ie. everyone doing their part to make things work. I initially stayed in the upstairs master suite (room 1) and later in the shared room downstairs (room 4) and both were quite comfortable. Room 1 is absolutely massive, though its size makes it hard for the air conditioner to keep it completely cool. Room 4 is great in that sense, and as you will come to realise, keeping cool in San Juan del Sur becomes a priority very quickly. There is excellent wifi throughout the property, and they have a generator on hand to keep the wifi going if the power cuts out (and for the period each Wednesday where the power to the town is switched off). On Wednesday there is also power in the office area to charge laptops, phones etc. They have put a lot of thought into making sure that people's work is uninterrupted during any power outage. The pool is beautiful, and makes a great spot to enjoy the stunning sunsets that become part of your daily experience when you stay here. There are hammocks and numerous comfortable spots to kick back and relax. The house could use one or two more ergonomic workspaces, in addition to the office space that already exists. The kitchen is a little run down, but has everything you need to cook up a storm. The house is constantly evolving, and I have no doubt that the staff will continue to make improvements over time. They have just introduced a cool initiative called NomadTalks, where guests from the house can volunteer to run a discussion on a topic they are passionate about. The most wonderful thing about NomadLife are its people. I have met some wonderful people during my stay, and different groups will have their own dynamics, which can change from week to week as different people come and go from the house. The staff are a wonderful constant though, and I think Sam, the manager at NomadLife, is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. The other staff I met - Des, Karli, Nemo, as well as the head of Life Before Work, Brady, are all genuinely caring people, who are a lot of fun to be around. It is definitely worth spending some time getting to know them, as your experience will be all the richer for it. I'm excited to see NomadLife in Bali, and am looking forward to remaining a part of this community for a very long time.

                          My first remote workspot while traveling turned out to be amazing. The rooms are neat, the work spaces amazing, the view breath-taking and the whole set-up with family style meals, and social events are what makes this place feel like home in no time. The hardest part is leaving again.

                            The community at Nomad Life is fantastic. Everyone is so warm and welcoming, the wifi is on point, and the views are breathtaking! It was so easy for me to fall right into the flow of things, and having other digital nomads around to collaborate with actually increased my productivity! The town is so close, the nightlife is insane, and the house is like a little oasis away from it all. I can't wait to come back!

                              March 2017

                              Nomadlife is fabulous! The house is beautiful, the views are breathtaking, and the energy is incredible. The house is a 5 minute stroll from the beach and town. Wifi is fast and seamless. There are several different working areas for whatever you're feeling. There are tables outside overlooking the water to feel inspired, a cabana to get comfortable in, and an air conditioned office to get down to business. After a busy day of work, you'll find a number of social activities to get involved in. Whether it's yoga, surfing, game night, shared meals, open mic night, workouts, spike ball on the beach, hiking, or a book in a hammock, there's always something to do. The house has 24/7 security so you always feel secure (SJDS is a safe town). If you don't feel like trying out any of the delicious and affordable restaurants in town, you can opt into the meal plan at the house where you can enjoy healthy meals with the housemates. My favorite part of the house is definitely all the like-minded folks from all over the world. Everyone is passionate about what they do and working on interesting projects. You'll leave with new ideas and new friends. After six weeks, I will have a hard time saying goodbye to this place, but will definitely be back! I'm going to have a hard time finding a coliving/coworking spot like this again! Go check it out for yourself. You will fall in love!

                                I originally booked only a week, but ended up extending to three! Really great community over at Nomad Life, with the perfect balance between work and play. After travelling for a few weeks through Central America, it was so nice to touch down in a place with dependable wifi and to connect with other digital nomads. The location is unbeatable and there are constantly activities both at the house and nearby - yoga, surfing, hikes, etc. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to find a productive working environment, while building super positive relationships. Can't wait to come back to SJDS!

                                    NomadLife is unlike anything else. The vibe of the place fosters productive work during the day and the town of San Juan del Sur provides some of the best nightlife and weekend escapes to be found in Central America. Patrick, the host and chef makes amazing meals for a very reasonable price. I've been here for about a Month and am already looking into planning my next visit!

                                      NomadLife is great. The location is ideal, the view is amazing, the fiber-optic wifi is really fast and reliable, probably the best in town. There is a really good affordable meal plan so you can focus on your work while the meals are prepared for you. Also, there is a cool mix of all different types of people working remotely, with different skill sets to brainstorm with while you socialize after work. Gym, yoga, beach, and surfing all within walking distance. Great for solo digital nomads or group work retreats.

                                        This place is so perfect for finding the perfect balance between getting lots done and meeting amazing people. The whole team is super friendly and always has fun activities going on in the evenings. The fibre optic WiFi is super fast and all the different work areas provide a perfect mix for people who want to lounge and work or people who want to work in the office with proper chairs, desks, and air con. Also the view is completely unbeatable, its definitely the best view in the whole town, and its right in town so you can walk into town to get anything you need!

                                          Finally an amazing coworking/co-living space in Central America! Beautiful, inspiring environment full of amazing people. Fibre optic internet is reliable and backup generator works in case of power outage (this is Central America after all). Loads of fun activities planned for the weekends and a very productive work environment. The infinity pool is the perfect place to catch the incredible sunsets with your new friends. Town is just a two-minute walk away where you'll find many restaurants, bars, a market and even a craft brewery with excellent beer and food. I highly recommend the co-living option and the food package. Patrick sure knows how to cook!

                                            February 2017

                                            Nomad.Life is undoubtedly one of the most incredible working experiences I have ever had. From the moment I walked in, I felt "Gosh, this is it". Nomad.life had this unthinkable energy that made me stay in Nicaragua much longer than I anticipated. I got an abundance of value from people at Nomad.Life with new friends, new ideas and most importantly a perfect work/life balance that inspired me with new ideas for my project. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, everyone, at Nomad.Life. This is not goodbye but see you later. Andy (Graphic Designer & Web Developer)
