This is probably one of the best hostels I've stayed in and I have stayed in a LOT of hostels. The price is nice and cheap but the place is awesome. There's a pool, bar, restaurant and free pool table. The staff are friendly and speak English and Spanish and some German too. Theres a couple of possible improvements but...

If you like to eventually sleep, then this place is not for you. The noise level, on a Thursday night no less, was beyond belief...and I once lived very near a large internation airport. Screaming babies in the freaking bar at 10 p.m., twenty feet from my room. It was like living in a Nicaraguan bowling alley. If you are...

I stayed at the Chilli Inn in one of the dorms for five days in July, 2012. It was $5 a night and included two drink tokens- for rum drinks: mojitos, caipirinhas, or rum y cokes. The location is perfect for walking everywhere in town. The staff is really terrific; they knew my name and were really friendly, putting together...

We stayed at Chilli Inn for 3 nights and found it to be a very sociable and friendly place. The hostel was very cheap ($5 a night for dorms plus two free drinks) and in a great location. The dorms had big lockable lockers and fans for each bed. The bunk beds were spacious and clean, although one of our...

I loved this place. Very friendly staff, amazing food, great value and a cool place to hang out. You get 2 free drinks with your stay and when we were there they organized a "pub crawl" for free and gave us a tequila shot (also free) and we got a free drink at every bar we went to and even...

Clean dorms with a fan to every bed. Nice manager and two free mojitos a day! One of the newest, cheapest, nicest hostels in Leon. Takes care of mistreated birds and has three white rabbits in the courtyard :)

Tried to stay at Chilli Inn, but they were full and recommended that I stay around the corner at a property they also managed. After I took a "QUICK" look at the property, I decided to spend a little bit extra for the private room. Once I started to get settled, it didn't take long to realize that there were...

I stayed at The Chilli Inn for two nights in June 2012. We were told about the hostel as we got off the bus in Leon, as it is not yet in Lonely Planet. We decided to give it a go as the price was great ($5 per night) and they were offering two free drink per night that you...

Chilli Inn became my home away from home for almost a month. Each moment of my stay there was great, and it's the staff and the owners that make it so. I arrived at 3am from Managua. I was lost. I was at the wrong hostel. I spoke no Spanish. My cab driver knew next to nothing about Leon. Frazzled...
