    Outstanding hostel with the perfect balance of social. We were here for New Years Eve and they had a great party that night with everyone in the hostel. The other nights were quite with strict quite time. There is a free breakfast which was good. We had an early shuttle (1:30am) which was no issue as there is a night security guard on hand to help. Lots of chill out areas. Staff were excellent and very helpful. There is a fridge full of drinks that you can simply add to your tab.

    Great chilled out hostel just off Leon's main square. Quiet for those seeking some peace, but they also provide activities for those wanting to socialize. Most importantly, their 10-person form has AC for those terribly hot Leon nights. Definitely a good alternative to the obnoxiousness of the most high profile hostel in town just a few blocks away.

    It is dangerously easy to get stuck here! I came for 1 night only and stayed almost for a week. The stuff makes you feel like home. They are genuine warm and super friendly. They have fun activities every evening too. It's easy to book a shuttle or tours here. I loved the social atmosphere there!

    Whatchu know about a relaxing oasis set amongst the heat and activity of a developing city? They comin correct with clean rooms, helpful staff, good location and a convenient partnership with Volcano Day to set up tours to surrounding attractions. The personal fans for each bed are gucci while the AC in the 10 person dorm keeps you straight chillin. That useful kitchen though!? Whatchu know about savin money by cookin on your travels. Lastly, how bout dem $1 brownies! Poco a Poco is gucci.

    Nice hostel, only AC in one room, is needed in all rooms. Great staff, except one of the volunteers who was winching about guest smoking, guest not drinking their welcome drink etc over all not a friendly person, shouldnt be working in hostels. Apart from her I would recommend the hostel and definitely would stay again.

    Such a great hostel, one of the best I have stayed at! They create a very friendly, social atmosphere, with a good balance between allowing people to have fun at the hostel but not being a big party hostel (e.g. once it starts getting later in the night the volunteers encourage people to head off to a bar so that those who want to sleep can). Only improvement I would suggest is to regularly clean up the bird poo on the tiles near the main bathrooms lol. But overall we had a great time!!

    The hostel was very nice, but I would never recommend to go with the transport they offer. They promised us if we take shuttle we going to catch the ferry at 2.30 pm for sure. This driver made a big detour to go to so many other places and were driving so slow that in the end of a very long day sitting in a shuttle we missed it because of 5 minutes. Although the hostel told us he will help us with the ferry he just drove off. And don't expect to much of the air condition in the hostel.
