Property Description

Poco a Poco Hostel has been awarded the best hostel in Nicaragua 2019 & 2018, what an honour!
We work hard to make sure our guests have a great time in- and outside the hostel.
When you stay at Poco a Poco you will meet a lot of other people and have plenty of spaces to chill.

The hostel has a very spacious setup, but you'll be never alone. We try to create a social and open atmosphere for our guests. We have a well equiped open kitchen for you to use, what better place to get to know eachother?
Our volunteers organize activities almost every night: taconight, quiznight, cocktailnight, BBQnight, pastanight, walking tour etc.
We are centrally located, just a few blocks from the main square and all the sites. A great supermarket is around the corner from the hostel, where you can buy everything you need. Bars and nightclubs are at a 5 min walk. We know the city and the country really well, so if you have any questions: just come talk to us.
Our staff is a 100% local, something that is very important to us. Looking to improve your Spanish? They are always open for a chat!

The hostel offers different types of rooms different needs and prices:
- 8 bed dorm
- 4 bed dorm
- 10 bed dorm with A/C
- private rooms
- 4 person private room
Because León can get really hot in dry season, some of our rooms have A/C installed. So you can sleep well at night :)

We love to show our guests a great time, but we are NOT your typical party hostel. There is no bar, we have a self-service fridge filled with $1 drinks. Everyday we offer breakfast for just $1 too.
Poco a Poco Hostel is a SOCIAL hostel, a place where it's about meeting other people and have a good time together. This is also why do some many activities.If you don't to join, no problemo amigo.

The 2 owners have travelled a lot themselves and tried to create their perfect hostel. We hope you come and visit us to check it out for yourself.

(Just a little tip. Coming from the busstation don't take the bicycle taxis, they almost always overcharge you. Take a regular car taxi. )

    Fantastic hostel. Did the volcano boarding through them (they partner with other hostel) met great people. Do not hesitate, this is a world class hostel. AC in the 10 person dorm wasnt that spectacular but in Nicaragua it makes a world of difference.

    I cannot recommend this place enough when staying at Leon. Lovely common area, spacious dorm rooms and probably the best hostel staff ever will make your stay enjoyable! Thanks again, Eric for making us feel like home at Poco a Poco.

    Staff were super friendly and helpful. Activities were organized for every night. These included a BBQ, quiz, salsa, all you can eat taco night and more. We went volcano boarding from here which was great. The AC dorm was really great and never full during our stay. Great place to meet people, nice places to chill, would stay again!

    A hostel that maybe has it all! Relax in the beautiful courtyard area all day and then join activities at night, which start off quiet but can get as busy as any at Bigfoot. A little far to the best bars but a great location to explore the city. It’s not the very cheapest either but its worth it and I could easily have stayed more than the one extra night. I very much enjoyed my stay so thank you to the outstanding staff

    Really nice central hostel with friendly staff who made an effort to try and get to know us during our stay. Breakfast was pretty good. Vibe was chill but social, the events every night were well organised. Almost everything you can buy in the hostel was $1 (beers, bfast, mojitos etc) so easy to keep track of your tab. Defs splash out and get the aircon dorm it’s very hot in Leon!
