The hostel itself is fine, if not a bit dirty in places (would have been nice 10 years ago...). However the owner is one of the rudest and most condescending men I’ve ever met and I implore anyone not to go to his hostel as to not fill his pockets. Go to Mango’s instead who have equally good facilities and a lovely staff

Desole si vous avez eu une mauvaise experience dans notre hostal.
Nous devons vous avoue que nous avons le pire proprietaire d´hostal de Leon et le pire patron des hotels du Nicaragua...et c est tres bien de faire de la publicite pour nos voisins de Mango.
La verite: vous avez voulu qu un de vos amis dorme dans notre hotel sans payer car il partait vers 2h du matin, et nous avons refuse en vous expliquant que l hotel n est ni une garderie ni un terminal de bus.
Cela fait 10 ans que nous sommes ouvert et nous sommes habitues a ce genre de clients....c est toujours triste de les rencontrer....si vous, vous considerez comme voyageur pas tres agreable surtout ne venez pas dans notre hostal...cela nous evitera de perdre notre temps a discuter.

This hostel is really good - free tea and coffee in the morning, good pool, a pool table lots of hammocks and these real cool rocking chairs to chill in. Not free, but very reasonably priced breakfasts. The staff are really nice. Also, they offer a volcano boarding tour that is the cheapest I saw in Leon.
BUT, the dorm room I stayed in was simply to hot. The fan there did literally nothing. As a result every night I would have a terrible, terrible sleep. The place is pretty cheap, but in my opinion not cheap enough to justify sweltering dorm rooms. If you can sleep through the heat and want a pool, then I’d recommend this place, but if not don’t book it! You won’t get a good sleep.

Had a great stay at Lazybones hostal. It was cheap, the staff are friendly and the pool much needed! There are a few small negatives (walk downstairs for toilet, sound travels), but the relaxed atmosphere and pool make up for it!

I slept in the dorm which was nice and spacious but the lack of fans is ridiculous. You would think that in the hottest city that dorms would have fans but they had maybe 2 ceiling ones and the ceiling is pretty high. I would wake up in the middle of night in a puddle of sweat. It gets really noisy at 6 am on the street so you won’t get a good rest here. Their fridge wasn’t working so no cold water or beer. The ambiance is non-existant but they do have hammocks and chairs if you want to hang-out. There are a few bathrooms and showers which is nice and a pool to cool off but definitely not worth staying here. My friends were staying at Poco a Poco and it’s too bad they were booked because that was such a nicer hostel. The staff was nice but the place could be much better.

I stayed 3 nights in total, mostly for convenience - it’s next to the Quetzaltrekkers office and a great location in the city. A solid 4/5 because a few things were lacking: consistently good showers, good WiFi, and protection from the mosquitoes of which there are many. The vibe was interesting, the breakfast was alright (get the pancakes, not the yogurt and granola), free coffee and tea, and the staff really helped me sort out my stuff. If you take a late night shuttle (2am) to Antigua you need to book a room here, you can’t just hang out. But it was worth it for me because I got out of a hike and could use their showers, keep my stuff safe, and sleep for a couple hours before I had to leave. I wouldn’t go to Nicaraguita restaurant, I had a bad experience there, but there are other good comedors around, and I recommend the street food at the Central Park!
