At first glances, we thought it looked pretty idilic. Gorgeous views, quirky buildings and food looked good. The setting is nice, with friendly staff and clean showers, toilets and bedding. But we didn't sleep one bit. The introduction was the rules of the drinking games (I'm 28, not 16) and the place was just packed with rowdy piss heads yelling...

Stumbled open this place, looking to share a few beers with travelers, checked into the semi private room. Semi private, as in semi built, semi standard! Brown sand floor, chest high walls, rips in mosquito net, beneath a dorm that looks onto the room. For a low price of 20usd. Bar looked cool, reception guy seemed like legend. Was keen...

Meals are around 6euro and are terrible! Common area is really dirty and uncomfortable. Rooms are filthy and lots of bugs- they do give you mosquito nets but there's lots of holes in them. Pretending to be eco friendly but actually just cheap. Only redeeming quality is the awesome staff they have. Big party hostel.

Let's be clear, it is a party hostel, if you're not up for this id recommend elsewhere (el Zipolote up the road) It's set in a beautiful setting, great views from the lookout on the lake. Animals roam free, however the bar is located next to the farm enclosure so there can be awful smells. The staff are interesting....up for...

I'm not sure why this is getting poor reviews from some people. Little Morgan's is a party hostel. The guys who run the hostel are rowdy and fun australians but they'll get you anything you need. Overall it's a lot of fun and if you want to get the party hostel experience you'll get it and more at little morgnas....

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room at this hostel and the private accommodations were incredibly gross. The open windows blowing in leaves and bugs were fine and expected, but our room had blood smeared on the wall and used dental flossers under a layer of dirt and dead bugs. There were also 2 wasps nests above the...

They don't take reservations so I wasn't able to stay there the first night that I was in Ometepe. The next morning I was there right at 11am to get a room and I found that they do fill up quickly! This hostel was pretty much hands down the best experience of my entire trip in Central America. I met...
