    Superb

    Bob and Michael are great people and excited to show others the splendor of their little country. One thing worth noting that I didn’s see in other reviews is the commitment to security. Every guest has to be personally let in or out of the property by the person at reception, who is on-hand 24 hours a day. I ended up staying much longer than expected and was always made to feel at home

    Owners Michael and Bob were very knowledgeable and open to sit down and give useful information about the country, they also provide a safe and clean form of transportation at an affordable price. The facilities were clean and welcoming. Perfect spot to begin or end your backpacking trip to Nicaragua. Would recommend to fellow travellers

    There aren't many options in Managua. Michael, the owner, is a super guy. Very helpful. I booked 2 tours with them, which were priced well below other sites I found, so saved considerable money! Facility is very well cleaned, but it's what you expect of a hostel - pretty basic. Pancake bfast was awesome. Walking distance to bus stop for buses to places like Masaya and Granada. Mall and huge grocery store just down the street. Good location. FYI - Managua isn't as cheap as you may think.

    I stayed here in November, and the rucus in the city was still going on. I actually liked the place even if I was just meant it to be an overnight stop point. I ended up extending my stay. The manager was awesome and really made my stay!

    It’s a nice place if you need to spend a night in Managua. The owners are very outgoing in offering any possible help. Dorms and bathrooms are clean. Not much atmosphere, but everyone’s in transit. Outlets and shelf for every bed. Small lockers in the lobby. Plenty of stores within walking distance.

    Very Good

    25 Mar 2019
    Unpretentious and stripped down but economical. Not enough air flow in the rooms and so doors must stay open which lets in lots of mosquitos. Not many showers and washrooms so if several had to go at once, could be a problem.
