Lazybones Hostal
Ranked #7 of 66 Speciality Lodging in Leon
Reviewed 27 May 2016

Lazybones is average price for Leon, but well, well worth the price. It's large, quiet where you want it to be quiet and enables social encounters where you want to meet people. Their planned tours and excursions are exciting, personal and probably some of the cheapest in the city. Their morning breakfasts cost nothing yet are filling and delicious and the staff is relentlessly helpful (particularly Luis).
There is good access to wifi and a pool.
The owner gave us money for our cab back to the bus station.
There is a fridge where you can simply take beers from whenever and just ad to your tab.
Just stay at Lazybones and thank me later.

Room Tip: There are infinite shared bathrooms. If you are paying more simply to assure access to toilets, don...

Havent seen other hostels in leon but i liked this one. Big hostel, lot of toilets, confortable beds, locker for every bed, swimming pool, PCs, hammocks. Attention from the crew was really good, solving all our problema. Tours are amazing with the best volcano guide ever, "el chino", we learnt a lot from him. I stayed two night with a friend and when we came back to leon we stayed at lazy bones again.

This place was great and totally cheap...$8 bucks I think! Places to hang out and read, clean showers, a little pool, 12 people to a dorm though and it's warm - very very warm. There's a ceiling fan, but it doesn't do much. There are little mice that will eat your food no matter how well you hide it. So, that was an issue, but they warn you! I highly recommend it. Loved the vibe!

I would recommend not staying here, there are plenty of great hostels in town, so go spend your time and money elsewhere.

The hostel looks ok in first impression but it is really poorly maintained and not clean.
We had a MOUSE as a guest in our room on our first night, and a huge TARANTULA! – the kind you see in horror movies, on the second…
The pool is dirty and smells.
Pool table is all broken.
Rooms are weird (e.g. no real ceiling, no toilet door)
Staff is very unfriendly, and even rude.

Its got a decent ( albeit murky) pool, lots of tables and chairs and free wifi for guests. Its in a great location, and the staff were friendly. Keep in mind that customer service in Nicaragua is growing slowly, so I don't ever expect too much- its just not part of the culture yet. What really killed me was the heat in the hostel, which is completely normal, however their fans in the dorms don't churn any air at all. I literally had to keep dumping water on my head during the night to turn and feel any benefits of the cool air. Leon is hot, but a stronger fan can certainly help!
