    Hostal El Albergue was my second hostel in León. El Albergue is decorated in a very colorful way and has a laid back vibe, as opposed to some more party oriented hostels. When I first walked in, I thought I had made a mistake booking the place. It looked a little cheapy. But after just one night there it became my favorite place in León. The people who stay there know it's a gem, and locals from the community hang out there as well.

    This hostel was super funky and fun. It is an older hostel and has heaps of character. The facilities are good and great Wi-Fi. There were only 4 people staying there when we stayed and only us the last night but atmosphere was still fun as we just had beers with Fran the owner. The location is good just a few blocks from the main square. The staff were super fun and helpful and had great recomendations. Kitchen was spacious and well stocked. Would definitely stay again.

    Really liked this hostel. Staff was friendly and helpful, the ambiance was great. Sure, it didn't look shiny and squeaky-clean, but I liked the livedin feel. The bathroom/shower/sheets were clean. Facilities were good, I liked the creative repurposing of the plastic bottles. Breakfast unfortunately wasn't ready until 9 (was posted as starting at 8), so I didn't get a chance to try it. Slept well, was nice and quiet, but close to everything in the city I wanted to see. Would definitely come back.

    I loved staying here. The hostel is run by a local and it feels like being in a family. The staff was super friendly, always up for a chat and helped with anything I needed. It’s a very small hostel but I’d definitely always go back.

    Lo mejor es, sin duda, la localización, a pocas calles del centro. León es una ciudad muy interesante y hay mucho para ver y hacer, incluyendo el descenso en el Cerro Negro. El hostal es muy acogedor, con una zona común ajardinada y una cocina de estilo rústico pero con todo lo necesario. Su staff es increíble. Fran y Abraham, son súper conocedores de la ciudad y del país. La decoración también está muy cuidada y creada a partir de elementos reciclados. Totalmente recomendable!

    An outdated place with a musty smell and en estimated bazillion hungry mosquitoes. The place is not very clean, the walls of the dorm don't not reach the ceiling and it is thus connected to the common area. While in the dorm one can hear ppl cook in the kitchen or use the toilet. The dorm is open to the outside with no mosquito screens and one gets eaten alive by mosquitoes both night and day. Also cats lie on the dining tables. Lack of electr. sockets, only a ceiling fan, place gets baking hot.
