    Loved the staff here ! Great atmosphere even when it was quiet, the staff do a great job to get everyone involved. I actually hung around with the staff much more than the guests. Very clean hostel, I'm sure they constantly mop 24/7. It was almost too clean 😂 Huge lockers under beds and back up lockers outside the dorms. 100% would stay again. Paddy x

    This place was a gem! I walked in the door and Sayeed said get in we're going to the beach! It was super close to everything. The beach or the volcano are short drives away. Such a chill place with a bar and lots of events!

    Right in city centre, so a walk to most things. They organize and inter Nica shuttle, and run most of the volcano related activities in the city anyways... so you are in the right spot to easily access those things. It is a party hostel for sure, loud fun bar and lots of different people coming through to stay and to Volcano board. Cool reprieve in a hot city, as good shady hang out courtyard.

    Solid party hostel. They can set up anything you want to do in Leon. Top bunks are a challenge to get on too. Bathrooms were clean. Showers are cold, but that’s not a bad thing. Little alcoves with shelf, outlet and light for each bed. Big lockers.

    We were only here for one night but what a night it was!! We were instantly welcomed by the staff after a 14 hour day of traveling. Some rum and beer pong later we felt like new women. The next morning a staff member helped us immensely by going through how to get to isla Ometepe with public transportation vs a shuttle. All in all I recommend!

    The standard party Hostel - really fun atmosphere with the different events each night. The AC was broken the two nights we were there, despite paying extra for AC. The rooms were incredibly hot and couldn’t get much sleep. I do recommend doing volcano boarding with these guys though
