Property Description

Awarded best in Nicaragua & North America 2018!

Poco a Poco is one of the best hostels in Leon and you are very welcome here!
While building our hostel we tried to create a great social and chilled place for backpackers.

Spacious rooms with comfortable mattresses, many places to chill, big green garden, great WiFi everywhere, a cool rooftop terrace and many hammocks. We also included a 'refreshment area' with are outdoor showers and specially installed mist showers. Last but not least we constructed the 'Eat & Meet' area, fully equipped kitchen and plenty of space for you to eat and drink with other travellers.

We are located in the historical city center of this lovely city. If you like culture, good food and bars... You are at the right place! The cathedral and plaza central are only 3 blocks away, bar street 'zona rosa' only 2 blocks and there are many restaurants nearby.

Need some help with shuttles or want to do a tour while you are in Leon? Just come see us, we help you with everything. It’s our job to make your stay at Poco a Poco Hostel as good as possible. We take this very serious and work hard to create an amazing experience.

We have rooms for all types of travelers:
- 4 bed dorm
- 8 bed dorm
- 10 bed dorm with private bathroom and A/C (9pm to 9am)
- Private rooms
- 4 person private room

We are not a party hostel. We try to be a SOCIAL hostel, a place where you can meet other people easily. We have traveled a lot and think this one the best things of traveling. To make our hostel social we organize many activities for you: live music, quiz night, cocktail/salsa night, fortress tour, BBQ night and movie nights. We know the city well, so if you have any questions, just come and see us at reception. We are here to help you.

We hope to see you soon here at Poco a Poco Hostel!

    We heard a lot of conflicting reports about the situation in Nicaragua so were unsure whether to reroute our trip, BUT we were so pleased we didn’t and had a great few days in León and learnt a lot. Poco a Poco is the ideal place to stay and we were made to feel very welcome by Sophie & Wouter. The hostel is in a great (safe) location and everything is walkable. There are lots of social spaces and there were quite a few other travellers while we were there. Would definitely recommend!

    I stayed here during a time that few travellers were coming to Nicaragua. I was a worried about finding safe accommodation to stay at but I was very glad to have found Poco a Poco. The owners were very nice and did their best to promote a friendly atmosphere around the hostel. The rooms were spacious with lockers for each bed. There was a kitchen to cook your own meals or you could join in to the family dinners that were on offer. I booked the volcano boarding tour through the hostel for $25

    This hostel has everything you want - help organising volcano boarding and shuttles, different events each night, great staff and ideal location. Unfortunately, with Nicaragua being in the current state it is in both the hostel and Leon was very quiet during our stay. Nonetheless the staff looked after us and there was a lovely pancake breakfast on offer in the morning for only $1. Shout out to the beautiful hostel dog - Poco Definitely recommend this hostel when Nica is back to normal.
