I love that this hostel provides airport transport and a variety of room accommodations that make arriving late and leaving early from Managua manageable. There's also a grocery store and ATM nearby at the mall, which are a short walk away, and it's easy to flag a cab there for transport to any of the bus stations in town.

Really nice, clean, well run hostel. Roberto at the front desk was absolutely awesome :) If you're looking for a party hostel this is not it - nice and chilled but plenty of people to say hi and to and go party elsewhere with!

The Hostel was alright, found staff to be unfriendly & rude.

Good hostel in central Managua that could act like your entire world when in town. There is a café where you can get breakfast in the morning and a kitchen where you can cook other meals. A large supermarket is abt 5 minutes away when walking. Most of the staff were very friendly and helped us out with issues concerning busses to other parts of the country. Would deff stay again.

I've been there for a four days and I think would be easy to find more friendly staff or a place with more polite and smiley workers. Place is Ok. Cleaning and staff...regular. Ciertamente creo que no sería difícil encontrar empleados un poco más educados/sonrientes y profesionales. Que te den los buenos días o te miren al hablar es un mínimo de decencia y profesionalidad para alguien que trabaja de cara al público.

Real backpackers hostel, nice and relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff. Private rooms are not worth the price though.

It is the best hostel I had been staying. Location is perfect .. it's located right in the center of the city, there are 2 supermarkets 1 block away .. there are 2 big kitchens with all the necessary cookware .. it has a swimming pool .. 2 flat screen TVs with cable and netflix .. cozy areas with couches, common areas are big .. well .. you name it .. thick mattresses .. its seems you are in a resort, all for 10.20 dollars .. I was planning to be there for 3 or 4 days .. and I stayed for 3 weeks

I hhad a great stay here. The staff was amazing and very helpful. The services and facilities were above expectations. I took a shuttle from te airport really early in the morning and it was super easy. Emails always got a prompt response. Very close to a grocery store and shopping mall. I wouldnt have changed a thing. Definitely recommend.

Nice staff and spoke Spanish/English. Somewhat clean overall. Didn't use the kitchen but it was somewhat clean. Atmosphere was ok. I didn't like the slow response rate to email. Never got back to me about picking me up from the airport and when I arrived, other customers were complaining about not being picked up. Within walking distance to restaurants and the minibuses terminal that take you to Granada. Felt safe (old guy at front gate as security). I would stay here again for the price.

Thanks for your comments. Our apologies for not replying to your email as quickly as you would have liked and in sufficient time to secure the shuttle pickup. At times, we get behind in our emails due to the volume of correspondence that we receive. For that reason, we will usually get back to you within 24 hours of receiving your email.

Thanks for providing your feedback! Our location is actually one of the biggest positives about our hostel, though. We're located in a clean, safe neighborhood, near the major bus routes, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and shopping. In any case, everyone has a different opinion as to what is a good location! Taxi services can be found off the street at a lower price than what we offer, but must be bargained with the driver.

Only one toilet in the whole hostel ?

Owner Comment (Hide)
In fact each room in the hostel has an en-suite bathroom with shower/toilet, etc except In the case of the two basic dorms, where the guest bathrooms are not en-suite but are located a short distance from the rooms.

The staff was good, specially the guy at night, he is super good guy and very helpful with information about tours and even the current situation in nIcaragua. the pool was good, specially after being many hours out and in the sun
