I got kicked out of another place because i was simply talking after 10pm. Checked in BackYard, got a nice welcoming party. The people there are really nice and conforting, i was amazed by the workers that litteraly clean the place 3/4 times a day.

Great hostel in Grenada with good pool and kitchen area. The nicaraguan staff were really friendly. There was a no bags in the dorm policy, which some might find a bit inconvenient but all in all pretty good choice when in Grenada. Oh and there have one really loud parrot that was kind of irritating.

Moved to this hostel from another (too many rules and regulations) and have had a great time. The guys that run the place are really helpful, friendly and relaxed. Great kitchen, pool and bar.

Granada was clearly one of the highlights of my trip and it would have never been the same without the backyard! The staff was incredible! Always ready to help, give tips aboutthe things to do in Granada and of course, always ready to party! Their islands tour was is a must and the hostel is close toabout everything! Thanks Backyard!

Backyard Hostel is probably the best social hostel in Granada, the bartenders are super friendly and there are a ton of young people to socialize with. The hostel is very close to the main strip of restaurants and bars along with the cathedral. The matresses are absolutely terrible, you have the option between two different mattress softnesses but they're both... More

One of my favourite hostels in Nicaragua! Great staff, great times and a great pool. The best place to stay and enjoy a cheap beer in the city. If you like tours, the boat tour is a must. I lost count of how many times I did the booze cruise. Yes it can be a little bit hot in the... More

Lots of cool tile work and bambu decor. Plenty of noise and drunkard guest as well. It s a combination of a frat house and spring break. My room was over priced,but the dorm looked better,spacious and clean. Take the dorm,not a private! Not a place for sleeping,but for partying.
