    Mano Mano made us feel at home. Great vibe. Great location. Not a lot of food options but they were all very tasty. Nice volleybal in front of the hostel and other options for activities if you want. Staff was friendly and warm. We had booked via website but due to an error had a bigger room than needed. They fixed this for us no problem! Wish we stayed here longer

    Such a good hostel!! Well worth staying a few days here if you’re in Leon. If you want a hostel to just chill, swim, and relax this is the place! Lots of people visit from Leon in the day so it usually pretty busy till early evening, with people drinking on the beach. Only annoying thing is the private rooms often have kids shouting really early in the morning. BRING FOOD FROM LEON IF YOU WANT TO COOK, AS BARELY ANYWHERE TO BUY!

    This is a great place to chill out, you could probably get settled for a few days. It is very social but not a party hostel. Make sure to bring food with you

    Perfect spot to relax on the beach for a couple of days - the staff were super friendly and helpful, comfy beds, nice food and beautiful sunsets. As other reviews say, bring food if you want to cook (there are no shops nearby).

    Perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beach. The kitchen is not well furnished and the best is to already have some food with you before to arrive (there is a very small shop where you can buy some vegetables and fruits but it depends on the delivery day). They also have a bar/restaurant where you can order food. I did appreciate to have the beach in front of the hostel. It's a very small village so nothing to do but chill, walk on the beach or surf.

    Really nice hostel, fair prices at the restaurant, staff cleaning and working all days. Rooms are a bit tight and top bunks are quite high, but the beds were comfy and the lockers to keep stuff are huge. The location on the beach is just wooof, 100!! My only recommendation is to put some bean bag chairs or hammocks closer to the water (as they’re all closer to the kitchen), would be perfect to be in the shade and able to lie down while being literal beach adjacent. Definitely recommend!

    The hostel is great, perfect location and well equipped kitchen. Dorms are cool. Free coffe in the morning :) The only downside is that there is not really a social atmosphere, the hostel doesn’t organise any kind of activity.

    Positive sides: Right in front of the beach It is generally clean Nice stuff and kitchen The bus stops at the door Good wifi in common area Nice area for exercise Negative sides: You have to pay to refill your bottle of water You are not able to wash in the laundry area so just wash your clothes in the bathroom or pay for the laundry service. Pricy food. They turn off the lights in the common areas at night (I think at 10pm) even though you are in silence working on your laptop.
