Cool place to stay. Great place to meet other world travelers and have some good food or a drink at the well stocked bar. A room with air con is very reasonably priced. Volcano boarding here is a MUST.

I went with my husband volcano boarding, its amazing and Bigfoot is the best! Ashlee and Adam were our fantastic guides and took tons of photos of the hike and the ride down. I carried my board to the top, about an hour hike. But you can also pay $5 to have someone carry your board up. bring a bandana... More

You have to do this! You're surfing on an active Volcano, so cool. You can really feel the heat from the ground. And if you like speed you will love this! You walk up there with your on board, but it's not very far, 30 min walk. The view are amazing too!

I was there with two Friends on October, we paid for the volcano boarding tour and we stayed in one of the private rooms. The tour was incredible and the guides were great and funny. I fully recommend this hostel to go and make the tour!

Had a great time on the volcano boarding trip, the whole thing was fantastic. I'd say it's a must do when visiting Leon. From the organization, to the staff to the equipment, I'd say the whole thing was first class.

Ashboarding was part of the reason I decided to travel to Nicaragua and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. When I got to the bottom of Cerro Negro I thought "I signed myself up for what?!?" The 45 minute-1 hour hike to the top was worth the gorgeous views up there. Boarding down was so much fun and... More

Personally I felt it was overpriced and not really worth it, and the admission fee to get into the park wasnt included in the price which i thought was odd. a bumpy hour bus ride in and out on the back of a truck and 1 hour hiking up the hill in the heat for about 1 minute of enjoyment... More

We stayed at Bigfoot and booked the volcano boarding through the hostel. We were briefed in the morning by our guide for the day Ashley, who is great at her job and very enthusiastic. She explained how the day would run, the safety tips and answered all of our questions. We jumped into the truck which is a ride in... More

Absolutely amazing experience! Beautiful hike up the volcano and so much fun shredding down, I haven't done anything similar to that in my life! Speed, adrenaline and fun memories. And also a BIG plus for the absolutely awesome, funny and nice tour guides Ashlee and Manny who really bring a good vibe around the group, they really make sure that... More

Loved it. Very well organized, Ashley was great and she took amazing photos as well. I think I was there the oldest kid for that day. At 60 I still have fun.
