This is one of the better hostels I have stayed in just because of the comfort of the beds! The hostel is very nice with a great courtyard and sitting area. The place is kept very clean and the staff is great. The biggest surprise however are the beds which are all double beds in the dorms! Definitely one of...

Thank you for your review to pass on to other travelers regarding our friendliness and cleanliness. We would like to point out though that the dorm is actually $8 a night or $9 with breakfast and the cheapest room we have for 2 people is $18 not $15, you may have got us confused with another hostel's prices.

Great place with a nice open-air courtyard and bar for meeting other travellers. Friendly staff who will help with booking a variety of tours and trips. Spacious dorms with security lockers. Perfect location, just behind the main square.

I stayed here only for one night on my trip from San Juan del Sur to Leon. As it was too late to hit Leon the same day. The room and bed were clean and organized. The enviroment is so quiet so It is a good place to have a proper rest.

The hostel is pretty centrally located, and the staff are nice and helpful. They give you a map of the main attractions around granada. The dorm is large, but there is no AC. However, there are plenty of fans that keep the temperature bearable. A slight pet peeve for me is that the bottom bunks are basically a double bed,...

Thank you for your detailed review, the staff will be informed and it is something they pride themselves on, that and keeping everywhere clean, we are also currently doing alot of painting and upgrading over the next few months. As Nicaragua has the highest electric rates in Central America it is not possible for us to put AC in the...

We stayed 2 nights in this nice hostel. It is no party hostel and the people you meet up there are more settled backpackers. The hostel is really centrally located and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The hostel area is ideal for hanging out and the rooms are very clean. Everything we need to feel well.

This hostel was nice. The room was good quality although (room 3) it is actually in the kitchen and consequently extremely warm all of the time. If you can't handle the heat, I'd suggest you go for a room not in the kitchen ;) The guest kitchen was small but useable and there were 2 good bathrooms. The staff here...

Cool hostel in a great location. The staff were excellent, friendly, checked us in early and organised us an evening tour the day we arrived. It's a bit old but has a cool set. Patio type area with hammocks etc with a relaxed atmosphere. They provided us a map and some good advice on the town.

Nice and clean hostel, slept in a big dorm but beds were comfortable and everything is pretty clean. Staff is very helpful and can arrange tours for you. Not a party hostel but nice for meeting a few people.
