Property Description

Welcome to Managua Backpackers Inn (or 'MBI' as we like to call ourselves!).

MBI has been awarded the 'Top Hostel for Nicaragua' by Hostelworld.com in 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2014.

Our vision is to offer a friendly hostel in Managua that provides the facilities and services to support the modern traveler.

Whether you're just passing through Managua at the start of your trip or if you're planning on spending an extended period in Managua, we offer the perfect social environment with lots of couch space and hammocks.

Our property is located in the heart of the new modern downtown Managua close to many of the main attractions and approximately 30 minutes from the Managua International Airport.

Very Good

Good place to stop if flying into Managua, though it's quite far from the town centre. Close to a shopping centre which is convenient and there are cooking facilities. One of the staff members was super friendly and helpful! Hostel lacks a bit of atmosphere though.

Al di sotto delle aspettative, la struttura è vecchia e poco curata però si trova in una buona posizione.

Not sure “Backpackers” should be in the title—feels a tad out of touch. I think every rule was repeated to me about fifteen times, even the ridiculous ones. I was mansplained how hostels work as if I’m not a backpacker who’s been to hundreds and currently traveling. Just very condescending owners that micromanage their guests. Costs about double what I paid on the islands in Nica. 2 fans shared between 8 beds—very hot. No good vibes, unfortunately 👎
