    A cozy hostel with a friendly atmosphere that is very close to town. They organize everything with the best companies on the Island from scooter & bikes rentals to tours and hikes. The hostel is always very clean. The owner is so helpful and knows a lot about the island; where to eat or drink and what to visit. They offer the best food, I wouldn’t miss the breakfast or dinner, the best coffee I had in Nicaragua and they have a variety of local and craft beers.

    Life is good is THE place to be in Ometepe. The lovely Roman and his team go out all to ensure you have the best stay possible. Beautiful food, tasty cocktails and drinks abound. Roman is a font of knowledge about the area (and life in general!). Ten out of ten for life is good on Ometepe. Xx

    Loved my stay here. The owners are so lovely and helpful. Easy to organise tours. Delicious food. The only place in town during low season which seemed to have any other guests, so there was a good atmosphere aswell.

    Food is incredible. Very friendly hosts. Intimate vibes. Would definitely recommend. Only small issue is it's a bit far from town. Not an issue if you have a scooter.

    What a fantastic hostel! By far the best food we have had in Nicaragua and the best host/owner in Roman! He was super helpful and knew everything about everything with regards to onward travel/motorbike rental/activities in Ometepe. Genuinely one of the best stays of our travels so far. Highly recommended.

    Great atmosphere, clean beds, good food. My two nights here might’ve been the best meals of my trip. And the craft cocktails and beers are fantastic. Must stay in Ometepe.

    Roman and Barbara, the owners of this place, are fabulous people. The facilities are great and people are super friendly. They can arrange tours, scooter or any facilities required during the stay. There is a restaurant and bar, but no communal kitchen. The place is about 20 minutes walk from the Mogolapya port. Post sunset, parts of the road get dark. So if you plan to walk in either direction, carry some form of flashlight.
