    Definitely recommend staying here in Leon! It is a new hostel and the guys at reception are super nice and helpful and so is the owner! The breakfast is lovely and the locations is the best, it’s so close to everything. Both the dorms and private rooms are nice and they keep it very clean. We ended up staying for 7 nights!

    The reason my stay was so great was all down to the staff. Koby went above and beyond to help me out -finding yoga classes, organising tours, and he and another guy even organised a pair of shoes for me at the last minute so I could go volcano boarding as if left mine elsewhere. Kobys attention to detail and manners are what you would expect in a 5star resort. His hospitality, kindness and genuine interest in the guests makes the stay unforgettable. Rooms are clean & comfortable, great location!

    Great place to stay and awesome staff. The location is also very convenient, and the hostel arranges activities for you. Definitely a great place to stay.

    Great location near the heart of Leon! Staff were really welcoming and we absolutely loved our room. It was really cheap for a quality sized double bed room with its only bathroom! The two fans were really needed (could do with AC) but they’re pretty powerful and can keep you cool enough. Breakfast was great. Huge healthy fruit bowl or pancakes with coffee and juice. Definitely recommend!! Not huge on atmosphere but if you just go to another hostel in the eve, you get the best of both worlds

    The staff are so friendly and the breakfast is amazing. They were happy to let us use their kitchen. Sadly not many people were staying so it was a bit quiet however there’s a great hang out area. They were helpful at organising tours.

    Very Good

    Pros: Nice and small (depending on what you’re looking for) Wifi is great! Many outlets Big private room Big private shower AC & fan Prime location for exploring Leon Cons: The biggest setback to this hostel is that it shares a wall with a bar & lounge, so hearing the music is an understatement. You feel like you’re IN the lounge! I stayed for 4 days & everyday they turned the music on from about 6pm-2am. Not the place to stay if you want to sleep, haha. Cleanliness: 5.5/10

    This is a good location with great potential. Unfortunately, some of the staff were too busy drinking with friends to be helpful. For three nights the room was not cleaned. While the full facility locks up at night, the individual rooms do not lock, leaving people and belongings unnecessarily vulnerable. The bathroom and beds were good quality and decorated with a homey touch. The common space is fun, but it was populated by drunk friends of the workers which made it awkward and uninviting.
