    Loved this hostel! The people were so friendly and it was a nice quiet area to stay and a short walk from the ferry! It was a bit difficult for me to find (I’m so terrible with directions) but there are people everywhere willing to help! Really nice rooms, really clean and really cute outside area to chill in hammocks, eat, look at the stars etc. From here you can easily take a tuck tuck to punta Jesus Maria for 100C each way to see the beautiful sunset! Also lots of delicious food around!

    Our stay at Casa de Gio was wonderful. Beyond the space what made this a memorable stay was the hospitality. Maria was there to greet us and she and her family made us feel at home right away (and it's literally their home!) She gave us great suggestions on what to do around the island, set us up with a trusted company to rent a quad bike for the day, and answered all the questions we had about Ometepe and Nicaragua. When we checked out, her father even drove us down to the ferry as a courtesy!

    This was one of my best hostel experiences! Gio was very nice and cat (his other worker) was super helpful with getting us scooters, booking tours, etc.. the rooms are BIG and each private comes with its own bathroom! They facilities were very clean and everything overall was superb. Would definitely stay here again

    Had an amazing stay here! The staff is so friendly and very helpful with activities. Great value for money. A very chill hostel with nice rooms, very clean and common areas with hammocks. Calm and relaxing vibe. Good kitchen with good selection of tools. Location is good, close to a grocery store, ferry departures and ATM. Would recommend and definitely go back.

    We loved our comfortable stay here. The hostel can contact and provide reliable scooter rentals. Plus the man and the cleaning lady who looked after us were sweet and very helpful. Nice big hammocks in the garden too. Beds in the dorm were comfy with spacious lockers underneath. Thanks, Chelsea & Sam

    Awesome place to stay. No real atmosphere which was fine for us but if you're looking to meet people I wouldn't suggest staying here

    Quiet and enjoyable - just a short walk from the grocery store and Main Street. The family that runs this operation is very sweet and accommodating. Lots of space to hang out in the hammocks, laundry service if you need it, and a fully operational kitchen you can use.

    We stayed in the 8 bed dorm for 3 nights. Pros- location in Moyogalpa made it easy to walk to from the ferry, decent places to eat, a good starting point for tours/rental. Antonio is on hand to give good advice. There are comfortable hammocks. Kitchen available but run down. Cons- the dorm isn't big enough for 8, 6 would be better. If 8 remains then individuals fans needed as room gets very hot. Bathroom needs cleaned daily. No coffee in morning, or kettle to make own. Place has good promise!

    A bit out of town which seemed a bit sketchy at first, but did not prove to be. Good matresses, nice patio with hammoks. Would wish for soap in the bathroom and a scrub of the kitchen and appliances.
