    Me encarta el hogar, la comida, los servicios, y la atmósfera. Yo recomendaría Tortufa Booluda y regresaría otra vez.

    Beautiful slice of tranquility in Leon, very central location (5-10 min walk to all key sights), staff are really friendly, they operate a self tab system which is nice as it creates trust and the place is designed really well with loads of hammocks/hanging chairs. Free breakfast was also a bonus and good. If you need a break from party hostels, this is the place for you.

    Great little hostel. Stayed in the dorms. Each bed had a fan and beds were comfy and everything v.clean. Lockers for backpacks under beds. Free breakfast was great with lots of choices. Loads of places to chill out during the day and half decent WiFi. Pool tables, futbol table and darts board to keep you occupied. staff very helpful and friendly!

    Overall a really good hostel. The vibe is very mellow, much moreso than Bigfoot across town. The dorms are nice, albeit a bit hot and stuffy at night, even with fans constantly running. The free breakfast was surprisingly good-- I'd order the gallo pinto-- as was the coffee. I liked their honor system with snacks and beverages-- it cultivated a trusting and safe vibe that made me feel comfortable to leave my electronics on a table when I ran to the bathroom. Having a pool to dip in was nice.

    We stayed at this hostel and hung out in a different one. If you’re looking for a super chill non-party vibe, this is the place to go. The free breakfast was great too

    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!!!

    Very Good

    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.
