We are located in the historic city center in a great colonial house with space for 38 people. The supermarket and ATM are just around the corner and the central square is only 2 blocks away. Plenty of bars and restaurant in the area too.

We have partnered up with some great local companies to help you with everything. We offer daily Volcano Boarding and many other tours, (inter)national shuttles to many different locations, language classes etc.

The hostel offers different types of rooms different needs and prices:
- 8 bed dorm

Because León can get really hot in dry season, some of our rooms have A/C installed. So you can sleep well at night :)

    Everything about this hostel was great! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable (especially Eric he was so helpful in telling me how to get to other cities and where to stay), the guests were friendly, the hostel was very, very clean, and there's a fan for each bed which was necessary because Leon is so hot! I would definitely stay here again this place was so chilled and awesome

    Super beautiful hostel. Charming staff, beautiful building and interior decoration away from the energy of the city. Great hostel to hang out, meet people, or do your own thing. Leon is a fantastic and beautiful city, and this is the place to be! 10/10 recommend! They also provide very tasty breakfast included in the fee.

    Such an amazing hostel. We booked for two nights but ended up staying for five. The owners and staff were just great and so helpful. The kitchen is big and clean. There’s so many places to chill and socialise. Air con dorm made it perfect to sleep at night. If we’re ever back in a Leon we will be staying here again for sure.

    Spent three weeks in Nicaragua solo backpacking, and this was my favourite spot I stayed. The staff was awesome, facilities were the right mix of social and chill, and the option for a/c was clutch for those not used to the heat. I would highly recommend! Henry, Carmen and Eric - you were all a delight.

    The best hostel in León! Poco o poco has it all: free filtered water, lovely breakfast, nice dorms (slept like a koala every night in the 8 bed fan dorm), beautiful terrace, lots of activities to meet people and the sweetest staff you can imagine. Darling & Erick treated me like a princess and I ended up staying three times, a week in total. I just couldn't leave the hostel, so much fun. It honestly felt like my second home.

    Snap het hele beste hostel verhaal niet. Begrijp mij niet verkeerd een goed hostel met oke voorzieningen maar niets bijzonders. Zou veel helpen als er wat meer levendige vrijwilligers zouden werken.

    Leon is HOT. And the air con dorm (night time only) was a lifesaver. Filtered water which is great. It also partners with Via Via and all their tours go with Volcano Day at Via Via. I’d say Via Via is more central, nearer to amazing restaurants. But Poco a Poco was nice and quiet. WiFi wasn’t great in some areas though which was a pain. They do a nice job with welcome drinks encouraging you to meet people. Via Via was much more of a ‘party’.
