This hostel is nice and clean but don't have much atmosphere, I felt like staying at a hotel. Matagalpa is small so almost everything is in walking distance from the hostel so the location is good. The shower was ice cold! But the bed was good, it was very quiert and I looovved the big lockers in a separate room.

A clean and big hostal, enough space in the dorms, lockers, bathrooms and the common areas. They offer free water and coffee during the day, breakfast costs 3$, laundry service very expensive. the kitchen can be used partly, many facilities are for staff only. Too many signs with rules and the atmosphere was boring and stiff. What really annoyed me: I wanted to leave earlier, but they didn't let me cancel the reservation, otherwise I still would have payed the full stay. No good vibes.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We will take your observations in account to improve our service. In our kitchen 1 stove and 1 fridge is staff only. Unfortunately we could not refund you for the nights you wanted to cancel. You reserved in our hostel during high season, which means we weren't allowed to reserve your spot for other travellers. This is the reason why you had to take responsibility for the reservation you made. We hope you can understand that. It's unfortunate that this situation annoyed you. We wish you a very happy rest of your journey.

Staff are very friendly, beds were comfy and there is a very chilled vibe. Kitchen was not the best, not very well equipped with hobs that hardly worked. Also, the showers are absolutely freezing. We are used to cold showers when travelling central america, however these were actually painful to be in. But all in all a good hostel with good people!

The dorm has a nice big bathroom and giant lockers. Theres a variety of spaces to hang out in, and free coffee and water is a definite plus. The location is great, right in the middle of town, though that does mean street noise is a little bit of a problem. Overall this was a great place to stay and Matagalpa is a great place to visit!

Thank you a lot for this review. We are indeed located in the centre of town with a bit of street noise. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest.
