Go here if you want to party. Make sure you get air-con. Great location and very secure. The rooms were not clean, we stayed in a room on the ground floor, it had loads of cockroaches, insects and even a mouse. Evan and Ryan the owners were really friendly but the rest of the staff just did not want to help you, to do anything. We asked about tours and the day guy at reception sighed and said he hated telling people about the tours and could we not look it up ourselves! Great bar and rooftop.

This place is perfect for someone who wants to stay up late and hang out with people or party, not necessarily if you have to leave at 5am for the airport (I made some roommates pretty upset).

It's a perfect place to meet other travelers, chill in the pool, grab a beer in the hostel's bar or have nap in one of the hammocks on the perfect roof terrace. Only thing that it was extremely hot during the night in a dorm, but can't complain as I chose the dorm without air con. There were also some small bugs in the room, but despite that I loved the place and would definitely come again :)

La Brisa Loca was great! Stayed in a private room which was very nice and had a mini fridge. The bar had great happy hour deals and the hostel was quieter in late at night. Breakfast is not included but they had a great affordable meals. The staff was helpful with suggestions and directions.

Everything is great and you get a free beer when you check in, theres a cool roof top and a free storage room where you can leave your big bags for as long as you want. The only problem i had is that it gets really hot at night and its hard to sleep.. But theres a room with a/c thats not so expensive.

This place is good for one night to party. Otherwise, if you're unlucky enough to get the rooms near the bar you will not have good sleep. The place could be cleaner.

Lovely building & sociable atmosphere ( bar, pool table....loud music) but too big to be really friendly. Negative points: rooms without A/C have absolutly USELESS fans that fail to move air around (even worse if you are on the bottom bunk) and very soft sponge mattress so you sink into them and sweat.....Bathrooms had no vents, so humid with mosquitos. Should install personal fans lke other hostels in the area. eg Masaya which is cleaner & more comfortable at just slightly more per night.

Great bar with a fantastically energetic barman called Brandon! Really enjoyed our stay here. The showers and the bathrooms etc were very clean. Lovely atmosphere here. Would recommend this hostel to any backpacker.

One of a kind place, felt to me like we were transported to the hanging gardens of Babylon. Our first night a travelling band played on the rooftop...an absolutely magical experience. The staff was friendly and helpful all throughout our stay. We were only there one night before the lost city trek and one night after to recover, and I wish we could have stayed longer to meet more of the interesting characters passing through. Very cool atmosphere, so it's no wonder it attracts a great bunch.
