This was a comfortable stay with friendly staff in a cool and interesting town. Enjoy!


I liked the garden area with hammocks, the balcony and the big dorm and bathroom. The dorm even had an extra room with huge lockers. What I missed was a warm shower (it is colder here in the evenings than in other Nice cities). The kitchen can be partly used by the guests, at least to prepare a cold meal incl. using the fridge. There are some very good inexpensive restaurants just around the corner resp. on the opposite side of the street.


What a great place. My brother and I arrived on Christmas Eve and the owner of the hostel came himself to do our private transfer. The hostel was great about suggesting things to do and even suggested activities with others staying in the hostel so the cab fare would be cheaper. They were great about keeping our extra things when we left for a trek with matagalpa tours (also, highly recommend). Location is great and city is really nice, cool, alternative to some of the hot cities!


Cool little hostel with everything you need, biiiig lockers and good shower room. Good location and nice hammock chill out area. Perfect!


Very organized hostel and clean. Location is central, extras you get are filtered water and good coffee all day.
