    A perfect place to stay for a few days. Absolutely fell in love with León! I like that locals hang out in the common area of the hostel, too. Do the free walking tour, lots of good information. I also took a Spanish class, and she came to me at the hostel!Great staff to play pool with. Included breakfast, with options, is wonderful! 10/10 recommend!

    This is a fabulous hostel. It strikes the perfect balance between being sociable and chill. Great breakfast, equipped kitchen to make your own food if necessary. Rooms clean and well thought out. I think it's greatest asset are the staff, the manageress and her team are super helpful and obliging. Great location, secure and you can leave bags if you are visiting the beach. Thanks for a great stay in Leon. X

    We LOVED our stay here, super nice and chill vibes. We were able to check in late, our room was nice and clean and the bathroom was big and clean also. The swimming pool, pool table and books and games were awesome and the kitchen was probably the best we have had in Central America. The location is not bad just a short walk to the centre. And the staff were really helpful and friendly. Oh and we loved the pet dog/turtles. 100% would recommend staying here - we loved it!

    An incredible place to stay and chill in Leon! The private rooms are clean and comfortable and the pool is so nice to relax around - the hammocks and chairs are a great touch. The owner and his staff are so friendly and are always happy to have a chat. Safe, secure location and the surrounding streets are safe to walk around. Only downside was sharing a fan in a twin room but apart from that you can tell the owner really cares about his guests and his staff.

    Cute little hostel! Friendly/ helpful staff and comfy beds. Love the dorm setup and free breakfast! we had heard that Leon was really not safe, but we felt secure there the whole time! Tortuga is only a 15 minute walk away from the “happening area” with lots of shops and other hostels. If you are looking for a party hostel, this is not it. But if you are looking for a chill hostel with a fun staff, I reccomend this one!
