    We've had an absolutely incredible time at this hostel. You can tell Roman and the team work so hard to ensure you have a great time. The food is the best hostel food I've eaten on our trip! The menu is amazing and so diverse. The cocktail menu is too and both are full of local produce. The hostel is spotless. You will be shazaming tunes throughout your stay. The staff have so much info on stuff to do and they know the island inside and out. Ometepe has definitely been a highlight of our trip!

    Life is good hostel is well located for various hikes and trips on the island. It’s not a party hostel, but the owners are wonderful people who will make your stay incredibly comfortable by helping you organize rentals or trips. And the food at their restaurant is outstanding! Even when you’re not staying there, go there for a dinner! :-)

    There's a reason why this place has such excellent reviews - the owners have clearly put a lot of time, effort and experience into the place and they really have created an idyllic hostal - the information and services are all exceptional and the food in particular is very very good! The location is a little outside of the main town but with a rental it makes a great base from which to explore the island! Really enjoyed our stay and we wouldn't hesitate to book this place again in the future!

    Comfortably one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Roman and Barbara have incredible passion for their hostel, and Ometepe, and it really shows. No question, request, or enquiry is a problem, and they are only too happy to help. The place is super clean, and the food is amazing! Roman mixes a mean cocktail! Cannot recommend highly enough!

    I had an awesome time at this hostel! Roman makes everything possible to make your stay better. There is a map of the island on the wall that he uses to explain all the nice spots of the island and to give tips on what to do. They also recommend local shops to rent bicycles, scooters ad ATVs for a fair price. The food that they serve is also very good! I totally recommend it!
