After a long ride with buses, cabs and the ferry we were looking for a cheap place close to the harbour. The Hostel Ibesa is located right next to it (100 Meters), we paid 18$ for a double room (3 beds) with private bathroom. We came back the night before we left the island. Pros: - Big, clean rooms. Pretty...

Nice place on the lake shore, with large shady spaces in between the rooms and dorm. They also have a large kitchen where you can cook. Staff is friendly. Facilities are basic, but everything works. Initially I thought it was quiet until one of the neighbors put on the 'music'. It seems almost inevitable in Nicaragua and the staff is...

Small local place close to the port. Place was easy to find 2 blocks off the main road leading from the port with signs to guide you. Our first night we were in the room with the private bathroom. The room was standard with a fan and the bathroom had a big shower, however the window had no screen. Bugs...

Great hostel if you are after a central base on ometepe, its family run and you will share a kitchen/common area with them but all super friendly. Great price and nice clean rooms. If you're looking for a good nights sleep to do activities etc and facilities to be able to make your own food it's great although there's no...

The place was very nice and clean,though one would prefer if the person who is working on reception had more information and better attitude,she always seemed that she doesnt really care about anything else than her phones and her friends to try to get some extra bussiness.The owners were thogh very sweet and nice people.

Very close to the ferry to get back to the mainland (you can see it from the hostel). Rooms were decent, but could do with more fans or plugs for fans. Only one toilet and shower to share, but wasn't too bad. Has a basic kitchen and free water to refill with. Very cheap and definitely worth it. We went...

Checked out a lot of other places in town and they were either full or not what we were looking. We should have headed straight here. Nice large double room with private bathroom and open to negotiation for multiple nights. Friendly and helpful staff. Close to town for food, drinks and tours.

I spent 2 nights un ibsa 2. The room was basic and comfortable. The hosts were wonderful and both Lina and the man who watch over the place at night were lovely as well. They let you use the kitchen and all. The morning views are just gorgeous and its kinda magic to wake up and see the fishmen doing...
