    Roman and Barbora were amazing. I had so much fun getting to know them and they both are amazing in the kitchen. Thank you Barbora for making me like pork belly! 🤤Roman makes it super easy to rent scooters, hike or whatever you want to do on the island he can help. Make sure to try the honey bee cocktail. I can’t wait to come back!

    What a fantastic experience! Roman and Barbara are so friendly and make you feel at home. They have great connections with services you need, like scooter rental, taxi service etc. Just ask and they will hook it up for you. The rooms are clean, they are warm but the strong fans keep you cool. The hostel ambience, attention to detail and vibe is great. And the food!!!! Barbara is a cook and a half. Everything is straight from the garden or local and fresh as can be! You must stay here!

    Great well run hostel just outside of the Moyogalp. The owners Roman and Barbara are extremely friendly and have extensive knowledge of the island. Roman is great to set up an scooter or ATV rental. Unlike other places the place he uses is honest and will not try to scam you. Food is a bit pricey but very good and filling. Dorms and bathrooms are very clean and the whole hostel has a very social/laid back vibe to it. Great dogs too!

    Free tuk tuk ride from port to hostel although it is walkable in 20 mins. owner is very friendly willing to help rent scooters and bikes etc which was so much fun. Food at hostel is the best I have eaten in central America. The viewing tower at the hostel also has one of the best views of the volcano on the island. Recommend this hostel to anyone.

    Roman gave us so much valuable info and advice as soon as we arrived, awesome host. The food was also excellent. We hired a scooter via the hostel - good value for money and super easy to arrange. The hostel is very close to the ferry port - great if you need to catch an early ferry to the mainland. Bear in mind you are 45min - 1hr drive away from most of the Island's hotspots / attractions - it's a nice drive though and you get to see great views of both volcanoes on the way. Highly recommend.

    The owners Roman and Barbara were very friendly and were helpful in giving us an itinerary of what to do on Ometepe. The food at the hostel was delicious but a bit expensive. The atmosphere was very chilled out. It is located a few minutes drive from the main town of Moyogalpa, but this was good as it was quieter. Cute dogs here too. My only complaint would be that the rooms were quite stuffy/hot at night, and the beds weren't comfortable. But I still enjoyed the experience.
