    For me, every country has that one hostel whose experience stands out from the rest. This was that hostel in Nicaragua. The owner, Trent, is awesome and knows how to bring everyone together. Great place ran by a great dude. Coming back

    Had an incredible stay at Ruamoko! The facilities are amazing, and the owner made us feel right at home. The room was clean and spacious and the lounge area by the pool is perfect for relaxing during the day. Playa Santana is a short walk down the road if your looking for a quality wave in the area. Definitely hope to come back and stay again!

    LOVE this hostel. Have stayed twice before. Can’t beat it in the area of Popoyo. The dorms are huge and really clean. 4 bunks (8 beds) with 2 bathrooms/showers per dorm. Really close to the beach and can hire surf boards. And the breakfast and family style dinners are amazing - freshly caught sushi was so good. Hmmmmm. Can’t wait for the next trip! Thanks guys.

    Spacious rooms, tons of great common outdoor areas with comfortable hammocks, amazing pool, and Trent the owner is incredibly welcoming and helpful and will go out of his way to make sure everyone has everything they need. I'd definitely chose Ruamoko again!

    Loved it. Owners were super helpful and friendly. Walking distance to one of the best waves in Nicaragua. Definitely recommend staying at Ruamoko when in the area.

    The owner is very nice and interested in making your stay comfortable. He gives lots of useful tips and organises dinners in restaurants nearby so that you meet the rest of the guests. Everything is clean enough, nice swimming pool, no shared kitchen though :( The downside we found is that it's a bit far from the beach (10 min walk) and from the surf places (20-40 min walk) compared to other hostels. Also, it's not that cheap, but every hostel in the area tends to be a bit expensive as well.

    We really loved our stay! It's a very laid back hostel and surf town. Trent the owner wasn't working at capacity so there was only 4-7 guests when we were there so don't expect any party. It's an 8 min walk to the beach and 40min to beginner beach You are very secluded at night so Trent drives the guests out each evening for dinner and activities. AC in private room was beaut, you use a the bathroom in one of the dorm rooms which was empty when we were here. It's ideal for surfing and chilling.
