A very cool place to stay when visiting Leon. They have got so manycactivities and the small but beautifully decorated swimming pool is nice refreshing in the heat. I didn't do the volcano boarding but I can definitely recommend the night hike to the volcano. So cool to see real lava and hear the sound of the roaring volcano and...

Leon is a wonderful city and I was initially drawn to Bigfoot for the opportunity to board down Cerro Negro. Volcano boarding was an absolute blast and while speeding down the slope at 50mph was a rush, the group dynamics and fun on the trip to and from the volcano was not to be missed. Consider heading out to the...

Bigfoot is a hostel I would tell anyone about if going to Leon! It is a very chill hostel, with so many backpackers from so many backgrounds! Crazy times, awesome people, great service for whatever you need with rooms, suggestions on places to go or just questions in general! And of course volcano boarding, something that I'll never forget and...

Thought this hostel was...

Great staff, good vibe, excellent place. Try the mojito's and lava shot challenge. The beach House is great. To the voulcano surfing, is a unique experience. Book in advance if you want a room, dorms are easy to get.

It´s a hostel, so if you are looking for quiet and peace don´t even consider it. But if you are looking for new friends, fun times and adventure, stop looking. Here´s the place to be! Sandboarding - House on the beach - Pool, music, fun times - I reccomend staying no more than 2 nights (maybe a 3rd one to...

Had such a great day and nights stay at BigFoot. The staff were friendly and helpful with great recommendations for food around the area. Our volcano boarding trip leader Carlos was a champion and when volcano boarding be sure push your limits. We finished the adrenaline rush with a lava shot challenge (or two, or three), then hopped on the...
