A basic hostal with a great location (right at the plaza). Unfortunately the guest computer was not working.


Enjoyed our stay here was good location, and you get what you pay for and all you need is a bed so that's good, staff we're nice and helpful, and Granada it's self is lovely If I we're to back is stay again!

On arrival given room 1 as a temporary room because one booked wasn't ready, avoid Room 1 at all costs, next to street door and reception so very disturbed sleep, 24 hour opening!! I did book at short notice, but at $21 a night the price was high for a hostal, maybe they justify it by the location only one block from parque central. Decent kitchen facilities but with so many eating options in Granada I didn't need to use kitchen

The one night I spent there was aweful. The hostel is really dirty, we had a huge dead cockeroach in our bath. The mattraces are super cheap and dirty. The rooms are soooo hot inside because of the lack of windows there is no air circulation. But the worst part about it: the security guy is watching loud porn the whole night. For this reason we didn't feel comfortable to leave our room door open during the night so that air could come in. All in all, couldn'twait to gget out of there soon enough


Spacey rooms with lots of mosquitos.


A basic hostal in the centre of town. Good value and comfortable.


Very good. Go there and you will enjoy :)


Best hostel in Granada...we looked at a few


This place doesn't honor the deposit you make through hostel world, and suggests it doesn't get any of the money so you end up paying extra.

hi, the girl at the recepcion told me about this. When you asked her about the deposit she didnt understand which deposit you where talking about, when she realized it you where already gone. I really want to apolegize for this, this is not the way we work. and if you send me an email i can deposit the amount you payed extra on your acount. Please let me know, regards Diana


I liked this hostel. The location was very good, and they were able to accommodate me on short notice on a very busy weekend. The price is a bit hight for Nicaragua, but my room was pleasant and quiet, and the staff was nice.

Common areas, staff, and location were great, however I was lucky Granada is a town with lots to do, which kept me out of my room that had pretty bad mold damage and a musty smell to go along with it. There are better (less moldy) hostels to be found in Granada for the price, and small hotels along Calle Calzada, which I moved to after two nights at Mochila.
