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? Every day we have social events for our guests:
Monday - Burgers and Beers
Tuesday - Walking Tour
Wednesday - Taco Night
Thursday - DSCVR Leon (great party!!)
Friday - Food Tour
Saturday - Cocktails and Salsa
Sunday - Trivia Night

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.

    Poco a Poco will make your trip in Léon a lot more memorable! Staff is super friendly and helpful, rooms and bathrooms are clean. A lot of different activities are also offered every day! I strongly recommend to have a stay there if you pass by Léon!

    We stayed in a double room with private bath, which was spacious. They have a great kitchen and eating area as well as a chill out area with hammocks and big cushions. Staff are really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They can organise tours, but I would recommend Quetzeltrekkers for hikes, volcano boarding as they use the money for local education projects and the guides are excellent!

    We kept extending our stay because we liked Leon and liked it here! Staff super nice and organise plenty of activities, definitely a social (but not party) hostel. Cool courtyard and rooftop area to hang. Massive kitchen. Only downside was how much extra it was for air conditioning in a private room ($6US/night).

    Great staff. A very welcoming hostel. The a/c dorm was great. Activities each night but quiet time from 11pm. Leon is gorgeous & the team at this hostel have suggestions on what to see & do.

    We stayed for two nights and tried to squeeze lots of Leon in so didn't join in with the evening activities. It would have been great to meet new people though had we wanted to. We stayed in a private double room with an ensuite. The room was simply furnished but met our needs nicely. Toilet had an issue with the flush and the shower head was a bit dodgy but it gave us the wash we needed. Loved that there was fresh drinking water available. Staff helpful and shuttle to airport was great
