Property Description

By visiting Hospedaje La Penita, you are visiting a true 5th generation Ometepan family hostel.
3 generations contribute to making your stay one you won't soon forget.
Here, you can truly experience the laidback vibe of Nica life amongst the locals.
Feel free to explore the island on your own or with a guided tour (that we will happily arrange for you upon request).
EXPLORE the island: Visit and swim in the natural springs of Ojo de Agua, go horseback riding, take a volcano tour, look for the waterfall of San Ramon, and try kayaking or zip-line through the canopy!
The bus that stops near our hostel will take you wherever you want to go. 'Plate service' is offered, this means mama Rosario will cook for you the best Nicaraguan meals on the island!
( extra payment : Breakfast 3 USD - Dinner 6 USD )
This consists of local, vegetarian, or even veggie meals !!


Of course, relaxing in one of our comfortable hammocks and catching up on your reading whilst enjoying a cold drink,
is also an option with us. We are here to help with your plans and welcome the chance to have you stay with us.

Hasta pronto!


The rooms are basic: a locker, mirror, AC 110Volt power connection, fan, double bed with linen, a towel for shower, and a quality lock on the door. They all have there one entrance.
There is a washing and drying place, or mom can do this for you ( extra payment )
There is always somebody from the family at home :
Lizzeth or Mark, mom( Rosario), dad( Francisco ), brother Douglas or his wife Keyla.

And of course, you can rent mountain bikes, scooters, and horses with us to go over the island!

Speak at least a slim bit of Spanish? Come here! I mean it's perfect! It's not a typical hostal, just rooms provided by a family on the island. If you're travelling such a beautiful developing country like Nicaragua and only stay in typical hostals you miss fantastic interactions and seeing the lives of the people. This is your chance! Come here, enjoy a lovely conversation and ask to check around. THAT will be memorable. Looking for typical comfort? There are better. Stayed 1 night.

I loved that place. It's a family owned hostel snd the atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. They made a mistake and overbooked but they didn't make a big deal out of it and figured things out very quickly. We ordered a dinner for our first night there and it was delicious (cooked by the mama of the owner). The breakfast was good as well. I recommend! The only thing is it's far from everything (except Ojo del Agua). It'd far from the port and far from the center (Moyogalpa). You really need to have a scooter, I would have been so sad without one since it's so far and very isolated.

Nice hostel! Very simple but had everything necessary for a night’s stay. The owner’s family was very kind and helped us with anything we needed.
