    This hostel is amazing - super chill but fun at the same time. The sunset view and the staff were the best. Josias and scarlet are the best hostess ever. Really good vibes

    A very nice hostel in Popoyo. It’s in the beach called Guasacate, if you are a surfer i wouldn’t recommend this hostel because you need to walk far to go to the waves but the view is amazing. Like everywhere in Nicaragua there is a cold shower, the beds are super comfy and they are cleaning the room everyday!! You have a very nice kitchen and a restaurant. There isn’t much atmosphere but maybe because it’s not the season right now. This is a place to chill and relax it u r looking!

    The hostel is located right on the beach. You can have any vibe you want. Party or a quiet. They have a kitchen, its usually dirty, but that's on the guest. They have lots of hammocks to chill in.

    Everything is good about this hostel EXCEPT the staff. They tried to rip me off so many times with change they would give me. And you couldn’t tell if the staff was just mad at the world all the time or what. Just be diligent with the change you should receive.

    Decent hostel, nice location, but staff is terrible. Rude, they make you feel like you shouldn't bother them at all when you want to order anything or ask a question. I ended up hanging two hostels up the road, way better vibe.

    Kitchen is tiny and quite dirty. The hostel was really dead while I was there, but the location is great right at the beach. The big dorm only has one ensuite so it's not very convenient and quickly becomes dirty. I found the staff quite unwelcoming which made me a bit uncomfortable. The hostel restaurant is overpriced but there are some other options nearby.
