    Usually, I'm not posting reviews but this hostel was amazing! It's very quiet, so it's not the place to meet other backpackers.

    Nice pool, and terrace with small gym! Great breakfast included too and kitchen you can use to make other meals. Staff were ok and rooms very hot at night in the dorm but fine for short trip.

    Really enjoyed my stay, the included breakfast was great, 3 really good options. Staff were all very friendly. Facilities were clean. Rooms were just very hot at night with only fans. Good location- short walk to main square. Good value for money. Kitchen always clean and well equipped for cooking.

    This place is super cute. I wasn’t really expecting much when I booked it, but I was pleasantly surprised! The front desk staff was v helpful and the free breakfast was the best I’ve had lately. We ended up needing to stay an extra night and it was super easy to extend. WiFi is not the best.

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. Kitchen was really nice and they have a watparenting. Nice gym space on the roof. Another hostel with families with screaming children. It seems to be the norm in Nicaragua. They were in the pool (which was right next yo our room) yelling and screaming at 7 AM one morning. Its difficult being around so many of them. The parents sat on their phones and ignored them while they woke the rest of the hostel up. Solid parenting. Staff didn't tell them to be quiet

    A little quiet when we were there. Actually only open on weekends at that time. Close to centre. Helpful staff and tasty, if basic breakfast. Clean rooms and common areas, despite hardly anyone being around - that’s always a good sign. Tasty restaurant close by. Wifi solid. Showers too. Stayed in pretty stuffy private, ut not much anyone can do about that. A fan did what it could to help. Lots of books to exchange.

    Nice quiet hostel. Kitchen is clean and staff are friendly. There didn’t seem to be a whole lot going on socially, but if you’re not into that, it’s good.

    The pool was really murky and very small and cockroaches were in the shower but was really nice hostel otherwise with excellent breakfast. The atmosphere was very relaxed, lots of families so the curfew/quiet time is quite early. The Danish girl manager was amazing and super helpful though!!!

    Good for a one-night stop over in the city, but the room was so hot with no ventilation and very noisy as faces right onto the toilets in the courtyard. I wouldn't have wanted to have stayed more than 2 nights but it was ok for a quick stop over from El Salvador. They also charge expensive prices for laundry.
