    This was one of my favorite places in central america. Eating breakfast in the morning here is so peaceful and quiet. It is truly like living with a Nicaraguan family rather than staying at a hostel. Their son is absolutely adorable. The vibe here is perfect. The only thing I think they could do better is the bathrooms / showers could be cleaner. Me and all my friends loved this place.

    It feels more like an AirBnB but you get so much for so little money, they are super friendly and make you feel right at home! Loved my stay there!

    I had a nice, if brief stay here. The owner is very kind and the breakfast is very good. Also the location is excellent for Balgue and the nearby attractions. There is plenty of space to park a bike, etc. The beds are comfy and have mosquito nets. Downsides were the freezing cold shower (worst I’ve had in >6 months in Latin America), loud dogs barking in the night and the gaps in the ceilings between all of the bedrooms so you can hear everything and there is little privacy.

    This hostel is more of a homestay than a hostel. The owner is so welcoming and helpful and makes a delicious 3$ breakfast. It was super clean and comfy. The location is beautiful but difficult if you don’t have transportation or aren’t willing to pay to take taxis to the main sights (they be very expensive). Aside from this though Baglue is a lovely area with some great food options. Research Ometepe and transportation before you get there, especially if you’re on a budget.

    Very Good

    We liked Hostel El Guis but be prepared for what you step into! It is a bit off the beaten track (Balgue is two chicken buses to get there; about 2hrs). The owner was absolutely delightful. She was extremely helpful and helped rent us a moped (a must if heading round the island). Good breakfast in the morning. However, it is a very small hostel with no social atmosphere so it is a quiet stay. Our room was big with ensuite but was quite unclean and loads of bugs (maybe to be expected though!)
