    We cannot recommended this hostel enough! Christian & Pino went above & beyond to make our stay a memorable one. Thank you for your incredible hospitality, taking us on great nights out & showing us the true beauty of León. We loved our trip to the volcano (made very entertaining by these two guys). We felt VERY safe here & were made to feel at home right away. Great location close to a good supermarket & bars. We urge other travellers to stay here - we only wish we could have stayed longer.

    Great location just a few minutes walk from the main sites in Leon. Rooms are clean and comfy. Chill area in the back is great. Staff were fantastic. We were there for 3 nights and unfortunately the last was a rough night for Nicaragua, protests, etc... Staff kept everyone calm and safe. Arranged for rides out for everyone the next morning when all transportation was shut down. People we knew at other hostels were stuck for much longer. Serendipity staff were great and took care of everyone!

    Love this hostel! When I arrived I was greeted by Pino, who gave me an excellent tour and introduced me to everyone there (including the guests) by name which was very impressive and gave me a real sense of community. It felt more like I was staying at a friend’s house than a hostel. The WiFi worked perfectly, even in the dorm rooms! They had plenty of fans in the rooms as well. It’s located in a great location. My only suggestion is that they offer free water refills. Everything else was great!

    Our shuttle arrived very late which wasn’t a problem. The staff - Christian and Pino are very friendly and helpful. They have gone out of their way to make us feel welcome and show us where to go. The hostel has just reopened after the political problems Nicaragua has had. The area feels safe now. It’s the perfect time to travel here as everything is very quiet and peaceful. Serendipity is in a great location very close to the main square. It has a fully equipped kitchen.

    Really well located and nice staff. The owners try their best so you feel comfortable. Dissapointing were the bathroom & kitchen, both really dirty. Whereas the guest should clean the kitchen, the staff really has to do something about this disgusting bathrooms. The smell is horrible.

    Very Good

    We arrived during an organized protest, which was not the hostels fault. But they hadn't had a guest for over a week and therefore had no water or anything else in the hostel. They also werent super helpful in pointing us to where we could find water etc. But they did manage to book us a last minute your for the next day. Can't say what this place would be been like during better times.

    The staff here were the only redeeming feature. They were super helpful with helping me change my reservation, suggesting things to do and even arranged laundry. The rest of the hostel was not great. Our room was filthy with dirt and cobwebs. The door didn't close let alone lock. There were no lockers in the rooms. The bathrooms look like they had never been cleaned. The water dripped from the shower and there was just a moldy towel on the ground to deal with it.

    The main problem I had was the security and complete lack thereof. The front doors were left unopened to the street which isn't a problem when the staff were around but they very often weren't and occasionally left for the night, asking the guests to essentially run the hostel for them, opening and closing the door, so if somehow everyone left the hostel then everyone would be locked out. Seemed pretty lackadaisical all in all. Added to the lack of security, the dorm rooms did not have locks.
