    Do the lava boarding it’s wicked fun, kinda tricky, and more intense then you’d think!, in addition you get like t free drinks, a sick tank top, and a shuttle to las penitas after. The hostel it’s self felt clean safe and secure, although it’s easily one of the biggest hostels I’ve stayed in the staff is very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is pretty relaxed and up beat, definitely a nice place to hangout at the end of the day.

    This hostel is great! They organize the original volcano boarding and offer trips every morning. During the day is pretty chill and at night they have different events. Sat nights they have a DJ party until 3am (the rooms are not quiet on Sat if you are a light sleeper, fyi, but if you're up until 3 it's fun). The staff is super friendly and helpful with whatever you need. The bar tab is under your name so you don't have to pay every single time which is convenient (maybe dangerous).

    If you like to party Big Foot is a must. The parties here were next level. From the organized trips visiting different hostels by party bus to the bar ping tournaments, it was non-stop fun. The people there are down to earth and approachable; very easy to connect with it. The whole experience was surreal, never had so much fun at the hostel before. The staff also incredibly chill. staff members are some cool chicas that'll keep you hanging around the front desk.

    If you're looking for a party hostel in Leon, this is the hostel for you! The atmosphere is awesome with events happening every night, and shuttles to the beach everyday at 4pm. After volcano boarding. Dorms and bathrooms/showers were clean. The only con is that we stayed in the 10 bed dorm with AC and the AC wasn't that effective. If you're looking into going into a room with AC, I suggest going into the 4-bed dorms.

    I was hesitant to go to a “party hostel” but it was actually quite clean and not too loud. It was social in a chill way. The volcano boarding tour is a must!

    Great if volcano boarding is your plan. Cheap and a good location. Kitchen is almost non-existing, but fine bath and toilet facilities. Free Beach shuttle also a plus. Recommendable bevares of the location and activities.

    Good location! Cool vibe for a hostel and they do fun things every night. Leon is very very hot so I would suggest booking a room with AC if you find it hard to sleep in the heat.

    Wouldn’t recommend this hostel. It’s dirty and doesn’t take solo women travellers safety seriously. Our door was broken, no lock fine but why would two girls want to sleep with the door wide open. When I asked they said this particular door was always like this and didn’t seem to understand why it would be a concern for my safety or my belongings. They abruptly without warning twice in the middle of the night loudly brought in new people and shined the light over our faces. Very inconsiderate!!
