    It’s a great hostel with lots of options, there’s always something to do in the evenings beer pong, challenges or just playing pool. As well as that there is also lots of different activities to do during the day and shuttles for all over Central America. Everything is reasonably priced and of course there’s the world famous volcano which is so much fun and worth the money!!! The only thing is the dorms can get quite hot at night but your paying so little, the price is pretty fair.

    Hostel with a great vibe. Friendly people and staff. Great value for money, the volcano boarding is 100% worth it it’s so much fun! Comfy mattresses and secure big lockers. Great place for a female solo traveller to meet people

    Big foot is a party hostel but good fun. Volcano boarding is great plus you get a free night if you do volcano boarding with them. We also took a shuttle with them to Guatemala for only $40 and got another 2 free nights included. I think we only paid $7.50 total for 3 nights worth of accommodation because of the free nights they give you! Staff are great and met nice people.

    Overrall a nice hostel. First, the cons: The mattresses don’t stay in place, they move around alot. -bedsheets are ill fitting and constantly come off. The dorm rooms are hot & stuffy - I suggest to everyone who books a dorm room that you book the dorm room with the AC or nighttime will be torturous. Pros: - Friendly Staff -Good location - Hostel events/tours -Hostel itself is spacious & gorgeous. - Multiple showers & toilets. -

    My friends and I had a wonderful stay at Bigfoot! The hostel is clean, cool and well located. Supermarket shops and cathedral all really close (5min walk or less). Rooms we were very happy, can upgrade for $2 for air con, but the fan rooms were cool enough. The volcano boarding; which is a must,was excellent. Easy to sign up and great value for money! Our tour guide Santa was awsome, really made our experience, so thank you! Couldn’t recommend higher for if you want a few nights stay in Leon!

    Place was pretty gross and was happy to get out of there ASAP but the staff were nice and considering we arrived at 2am from our shuttle they were hospitable for the hour of the morning.

    Keep your stuff LOCKED UP here. We were all robbed. Highly unsecure hostel. Ruined an otherwise pleasant time in Leon.

    Disgusting place. The room I was placed was an unlocked room (I was not given a key). I paid extra for the room with AC. The AC was broken and sounded like an F1 racetrack directly next to my bed. The room smelled like years of rotting mildew and so between these two I maybe got 1/2 hour of sleep. The workers are nice but suggested I have sex with random guys in the pool. It was a disturbing experience. I would never recommend this hostel.
