The hotel was very nice and clean. Loved the small patio foe relaxation. The dorms were also well equipped and clean. Only thing is that kitchen could have more equipment it only has the basic so we had to do workarounds for our meals. Other than that everything was great. Quite and a good service.

Myself and 2 others stayed at Hostal El Momento at the end of June for 2 nights. Our flight into Managua arrived in the evening so we had arranged the hostel to pick us up at the airport. Upon arriving at the airport, there was someone waiting for us with our name on the sign. Was very nice to not...

Quiet Hostel with great, hard working staff. Zack greeted us when we first arrived (originally only booking 2 nights) and showed us our dorm, little kitchenette, fridge for the dorm residence and 2 relatively clean bathrooms. Chris, the owner from Liverpool, introduced himself as well. Everyone was so nice and helpful, their breakfast was delicious and they offered to fill...

After spending my first night in Granada in a party hostel where the mattress was basically non-existant and I could literally feel every slat on the bed I was SO glad to find El Momento. I stayed here for 2 weeks at the beginning and end of December. The beds in the dorm are huge and oh so comfy (if...

This hostal in beautiful Granada is so friendly, clean and well situated… I could not believe the perfect room (very airy, big and so cheap!), beautiful bathroom and lovely common areas to sit and meet people from all around the world. This is a lovely place to stay in Granada. It is a 3 minute walk from the central park...

El Momento has a great location. You can easily walk to many places from here. The staff are great people willing to help you at all times. This place is also very clean which gives it a great ambiance. The only downside is that my dorm was too hot. Even with the fans around the room, my bed was hot....

Hostal el Momento really is a perfect hostel! It offers everything a backpacker could ask for! Like many buildings in Granada it has a big patio which offers many places to hang out (hammocks, sofas, very cozy chairs, sun beds...). Moreover, there's a kitchen you can use, which I think is always nice. However, the hostel offers quite tasty food...

I stayed at the dorm and also a private room at El Momento. There are 10 or 11 beds in the dorm so of course it is busy. You have private lockers for your personnel stuff and a rack for your pack. There is a bathroom in the dorm with a nice big shower space and a few other bathrooms...
