Our location is magnificent. We are in the very center of Leon. We are a few minutes away walking from the Cathedral of Leon and Parque Central. In addition other important spots of the city such as Museo De La Revolucion and Iglesia El Calvario are also in reachable walking distance.

    This hostel is AMAZING! Best place to stay in Leon! There is a great atmosphere with space to party, play pool, darts, swim, and just chill. They have regular events going on and are the 1st company to start Volcano Boarding - which was the best experience I’ve had in Central America HANDS DOWN. Santa is a great guide and let us take our time up the hike. Saeed runs 30 Trees which allows guests to plant trees at rural underfunded schools. I loved giving back to the community. LOVE LOVE LOVE 💕

    Really fun and cheap hostel. They have a pool and good recommendations for food. The rooms do get really hot so I would recommend a room with AC if you it’s available. You get free nights if you do volcano boarding (a must while you’re in Leon) and/or take a shuttle which is pretty affordable to begin with. The staff were really nice and outgoing. Overall a great experience.

    Loved my time here, volcano boarding was a crazy experience and the room so cheap (even the aircon rooms are great value). I think a great group of people here is definitely important though, we went to a local baseball game and visited the beach, had a BBQ with some fish two lads caught that morning. Great experience if you do plenty of stuff.

    Fulfills basic backpacking needs. Anyone can go to the bar and back into the guest hangout areas, so I made sure to lock my stuff up. My room felt decently safe since there was 11 people. I think they said they had AC, but I never felt it. Pretty basic hostel, but worth the price and fun environment. I would stay again.

    Literally anyone on the street could walk in (and into the dorms) had they wanted to as there is no security / wristband checking and the front door is always wide open during the day. The cleanliness / general state of the place left much to be desired, as did the kitchen which was a bit grim. There are no working lights in the bathroom/shower rooms. Cleaner seemed to walk around all day mopping over the same bit of floor over and over, rather than doing any substantive cleaning.
