#1 of 80 Speciality lodging in Leon
Travellers' Choice
Hi there! We are a new hostel in the historic city center of León. Both owners (Wouter & Sophie) have travelled a lot and are now fulfilling their dream, to start their own hostel. And this is it! We have tried to make this a very good hostel and so far we are really happy with the result. A big and spacious property which offers you a lot of open areas where you just chill out. Want to meet new people? Sure that's also possible. We have build a rooftop terrace (unique in León) where you can enjoy a sunset or gaze at the stars. We believe that cooking and eating are very important social moments, so we have build a very big and fully equiped open kitchen for everyone to use. León gets very hot, thats why we installed outdoor showers and specially designed 'mist-showers'. Come to Poco a Poco Hostel and beat the heat! Our property is at least 150 years old (nobody knows for sure) and you can tell. Nice classical wooden doors, very big patio and green garden garden and other classical details. We are not a party hostel. But we are a hostel where can have a very good time. We do everything to create that chill/travelling vibe in the hostel. After all this socializing you want to sleep. We got you great beds with very comfortable matrasses, all bedlinnen is included. Off course we have WiFi everywhere and can arrange any trip you want to do. We hope that you, after reading this and seeing the foto's, want to come over and visit us. We'll make sure you will have a great time here in León! Any questions? Feel free to ask, we will answer as fast as we can. See you soon at Poco a Poco Hostel! Wouter and Sophie

Que Calor, Leon! Northwest Nic is a sharp hot shock when accustomed to Carib summer rain, especially when dehydrated by demasiado cerveza further up the road. Poco a Poco, with genial hosts Henry & Eric, was hammock to hammock rehab for a couple of days, where I was resident perezoso sloth, literally hanging out in the courtyard, where the fans nearly matched my lazy bones, yet better than sweating in the stuffy dorm. But the sign of a laid-back hostel: no one was judging, or at least never nudged me with any ahems. To my credit, I did sledge-surf the ash-cone of Cerro Negro, not as zestily as most, but the hangover didn't quite quell the thrill. Poco a poco, toddling the baking calles of Leon, though not a patch on colonial charms of Granada, far less Antigua, not unpleasant - most Central Am cities are pretty grim. Get out of town to the landscapes and pueblos and you've got the corazon. Gracias para el descanso, amigos, while I gathered energy levels and sinews, heading up for hiking in the northern highlands where a peely-wally Scotsman feels more at home.

I chose the Poco a Poco Hostel based on its good reviews and stayed there for 3 nights over Christmas in 2019 - and I LOVED IT!!! I stayed in the premium / deluxe dorm with aircon and although it was at least a 10-bed dorm it turned out to be spacious and I slept wonderfully. It also had its own bathroom attached to the dorm. The hostel itself is divided into several little chill zones with makes up part of its charm. You can sit and relax on the roof top, chill at own of the sofas or hang out in one of the hammocks. There is also a communal kitchen where you can prepare your own meals if you chose to do so (there are also plenty of restaurants around). This is also where the included breakfast is served each morning. The staff is super helpful and on Christmas Eve they even prepared a special meal for us and decorated the dining area which was very lovely!! And for every other day of the week, the hostel planned activities in the evening in case you get lonely.

We really enjoyed our stay at this cosy and clean hostel. We stayed in a private room which was great value for money and enjoyed the nice ambiance and morning breakfasts. The location is perfect; in a quiet area but at close walking distance to everything. Also, the lady that prepares the breakfast in the morning and the staff at the reception are very friendly!
