We stayed here two nights and found it okay. We stayed in a room with a balcony with an ocean view. That was really nice! The breakfast was great, you get to choose from the menu between 3 dishes. The pancakes were the best. That said the bathrooms were on the first floor and the rooms on the second, so...

Great location. Horrible customer service & beds. DON'T BOTHER. My boyfriend and I went to inquire about a room for 1-3 nights. We were greeted by the son who spoke English very well. He offered for us to look at a room with balcony (room 6 w/ 2 single beds & balcony). It was okay but we saw inside room...

We came from the north of Nicaragua, were we traveled for 2,5 weeks, were everything is much cheaper then in the south. But Hotel Estrella gave us a good deal, a double room including breakfast (three different ones) for 20 dollars. Our room was spacious, the beds were okay and unfortunately the fan didn't really worked well. We stayed there...

At the beginning the owner was friendly, but... just for the check-in. After she became really unfriendly, even embittered.. Also the mattress of our room was not comfortable. It's a pity because the location of the hostel is perfect, it's clean, bathrooms are ok and a (good) breakfast is included. We stayed just 1 night but changed asap for an...

First off, you can't get a better location, right across the street from the beach and views from the balcony (with electrical wires in some rooms though). The staff was super friendly at check-in, then it stopped... They are just "meh". The place is really clean though, the shared bathrooms are continually cleaned with buckets and buckets of soapy water....

Decent hostel with different kinds of rooms, all for the same price 12$/pp. What room you get will probably decide how good your stay is gonna be. We were first offered a small room in the back with a window straight into a tree and no direct sunlight. We were about to decline and were instead offered a front room...

After reading some of the reviews of this place I decided to give it a try anyway. Truth is, I am very easy to please, just a bed and a fan will do - mostly just happy for a place to crash after a day of exploring. I also want to say that I have never written a negative review...

I booked to stay for a few nights, however after one I left immediately. The owner is so rude!!! My partner asked her when breakfast finished to which she simply replied it's ok it's open. We come down for breakfast at 9:10 she advised abruptly that breakfast finished at 9? Refused to serve us and started abusing us to the...

Owners arguing in front of customers, lack of communication between them and horrible way to approach customers, silly rules. The food was good. other than that and the location, would not have stayed there if anything else had been available.
