I have been to this place to hang out and play some games while having some drinks. That was really cool, until some die hard drinked proposed to take a Lava Shot, that was fun and horrible at the same time and gave us some stuff to talk as a crew for the next hour for sure. This place had a very diverse crew that wanted to have fun and meet people.

The kitchen was dirty and useless. There were not enough utensils or room to cook. The fridge was dirty and barely cooling. Also, at night music was too loud until very late, so if you've had a long day or are trying to sleep for whatever reason it's hard until super late. That being said,Carolina is very nice and will help you accommodate and figure out local things. It's in a good area next to the cathedral and the supermarket.

If you like party hostels first backpackers, Bigfoot is great. Beds are clean, staff are friendly and helpful. I went volcano boarding with Santa, who is very enthusiastic and was a great guide. The discounts they give you from the trip are pretty handy too. They also organize other activities and trips like beach parties and beer pong. Cool place to meet and hang out with other backpackers!

Good hostel. Met some great people and the drinks were very cheap. The beer pong is so fun and they have a pool and a pool table. You should definitely get an air conditioned room it’s so worth it. Thanks !

Beer pong night is so much fun! Great atmosphere. Well located and great activities - volcano boarding is amazing! Leon feels very safe and one of the best cities I have visited in Central America. Yes it is.
