I stayed in this hostel as i was encouraged by the reviews, and indeed it is a very party place, so party place that this is not a hostel anymore - one who stays there wont sleep much as people are screaming, yelling, partying all over the hostel (forget about the lights to be turn off at night in the...

Good food, drinks at the bar, volcano boarding or hiking telica volcano, a place to lay your head and people from all over the world. Now my boyfriend and I are...

Stayed for one night, this hostel has all necessary facilities, but it's a big party place, if you are looking to party - these guys definitely know how to party, but if you are looking for a quite space - then find another hostel. Volcano boarding was reeeeally fun, the guide was super great, so activities here are well managed....

The volcano boarding was great fun and really well organised by the hostel. Our guide was Emily and she was great- really friendly and informative about the history of the volcano etcccc. I...

We arrived in the early hours of the morning after a long day of travel from Honduras. The night staff were helpful and got us settled into a room quickly. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, make sure you allow enough time before volcano boarding to eat as it can take a little while if there is a big...

when the staff aren't flirting, taking selfies or talking amongst themselves, they can occasionaly be useful. or they can be passive aggresive and make a sad attempt at sarcasm like the dreadlocked girl in the harem pants when she was telling me they did not serve pizza on tuesdays. sigh. most of the staff are volunteers it seems like, so...

Firstly I would like to start with the positives. The volunteers that work here are awesome people, they should get more credit for the work that they do. A great hostel if you like to party or people watch. There's activities and shuttles so you don't have to go very far. Now, here's the negatives. You pay $26 dollars for...

I have stayed in a lot of party hostels throughout my travels, I don't think I have one as memorable as this. Every night the bar is exciting and plays great music through to midnight sun-thurs & 2am fri-sat. The local staff have a great attitude and will try to cater to some ridiculous needs some people have that seem...

Myself and 2 friends stayed here for one night. Dorms were average but all you need. Wifi, air con, and showers were good. Staff were very helpful and nice. Restaurant was good but would suggest going elsewhere for cheaper food. The town of Leon is quaint but not much to do. I would recommend volcano boarding for sure. Ashley was...
