    I had such a lovely stay at this hostel. It has a great family-run atmosphere, and is still very social amongst the guests despite being small. The food is great, the staff are very helpful and kind and the rooms are perfectly clean and comfortable :)

    Loved our stay here! The staff are SO nice - a fantastic, friendly and dedicated family run establishment. Super helpful with whatever we needed. Simple but clean rooms with fans. The food is some of the BEST food we've had (get the key lime pie if you can!), and we met people at dinner every night which was really fun. The bar is well stocked, and they make tasty cocktails. We were also able to rent a scooter through the hostel from a trustworthy place with front door pickup/drop off.

    Great hostel, chill and family vibe. Barbara and the rest of the staff prepare such good meals you won’t be disappointed from breakfast to dinner. Special thank you to the grandma who made a Volcano sandwich at 4:50 in the morning and it was sooo good!

    this hostel is so homely!!! the owners are so lovely and dedicate time into making the most out of your stay on ometepe. the location is great for being near the doc however most activities are on the other side of island which is a pain but if you have mopeds it’s fun! is no kitchen and don’t allow much food to be brought in, however they provide breakfast and dinner which is amazing but veryyy pricey!! would recommend.

    An enjoyable stay. The hostel is some what of a guest house. The owners live there with a 2 year old baby, 2 dogs and a kitten. They have made the communal area into a play area for the baby. The hostel is very clean and was cool at night to sleep well with no AC. Dinner was very nice although a bit expensive. Breakfast was average as I've found all over CA. They have no water refil which is disappointing and water bottles are expensive. Private room was very basic. Just a bed to sleep in.
