We checked in to the hostel in the late afternoon. The room was nice and big but only fans no air conditioning and wasn't offered air conditioning. My friends speaks Spanish and the guy at the front desk didn't seem to understand much English or Spanish and wasn't very helpful. Granted the people at the bar were friendly and said...

Bigfoot attracts a fun, young crowd, and the staff reflect this. Good music, limited but tasty food menu, and the volcano boarding can't be missed. The one huge let down is the shuttle service. For $80 usd to Antigua, I expected more than an old van, with no air con, broken suspension, and packed to the point that some had...

The hostel has a great vibe. It's a good mix between chilling and partying. The staff was ways friendly. There is a "restaurant " at the hostel which serves great food… a bit overpriced though. Rooms are clean, Comfortable beds, and AC in the room. Great place. I'd come back.

Not my typical scene but for what it caters too, it does well. Bar and small pool Inside, prices are good, dorm was clean (my...

I ended up getting at this hostel very late at night, but felt very safe once I arrived. I ended up booking a private room and it was really nice. I was happy to have my own shower and there wasn't any hot water, but that's pretty normal for Central America. The next day, I got delicious breakfast cooked from...

Actually the best hostel I have been in Central America. Honest price, clean, nice kitchen, awesome restaurant and crazy partys. The perfect place for who is traveling and want meeting people from different countrys and join it. Here you can also do the Volcano Boarding on the fastest board in Leon.

The place itself was ok. Clean rooms, young atmosphere and good restaurant. BUT, and this is a big but, the staff were just not kind and not helpful. They tried to make us pay extra for things that u would imagine should be free after you stayed there for almost week. Even after a talk with the manager, no real...
