The Guaras Hostal

San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Can't say enough about this hostel. Despite being in a very dangerous city, felt safe at Rocky's. He picked us up and returned us to the bus station-no charge. Made us so welcome in his home as guests rather than strangers. Had a wonderful evening with fellow travelers after experiencing a delicious typical Honduran meal prepared by Rocky and his brother. Would not accept money for this either. Rocky appears to enjoy offering this hospitality to travelers. Best hostel stay ever!!

La Posada B&B

San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Nice hostel with a pool. Alex was helpful and appeared genuine.

The Landing Hostel

Ometepe Island, Nicaragua

Only stayed one night. Adequate. Only ones there. Convenient.

Managua Backpackers Inn

Managua, Nicaragua

Great location and not much competition in Managua, so often full, but only place in two months of traveling Central America that we thought was overpriced. Ants in the room and no electricity in the rooms until after 10 PM, which means no fan until then. Second night not turned on at all and couldn't find staff to do so. Only hostel in two months to do this. Restaurant and lounge area were good. Staff did not interact at all.

I'm sorry to hear that you had these problems during your stay. In the case of the electricity, we definitely do not have a policy of turning off the power at any time. The only restriction we have is regarding the air conditioning, which is run between the hours of 9pm-9am, however, this in no way affects the availability of fans/tvs/lights, etc. which are a basic service here and available 24/7/365. Thanks for your comments.
