Very relaxed and chill vibe. Nice open air courtyard with hammocks and swing chairs. Community kitchen. Rooms are simple but cheap. They brought us an extra fan which was great. The have super cheap dorms but the private rooms are too. Would stay again.

About
Description
Lonely Planet says about: Hostal of Albergue is a hostel in León-Nicaragua offering a tranquil and genuine Nicaraguense environment. Really, really great hostel! It is the only backpacker place with a More complete Nica staff & Nicaraguan ownership that I have found in León. They have all the services that foreigners expect, and in addition all the local knowledge about culture, politics, etc. that most other places cannot provide. The entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and very interested in conversing about both Nicaraguan realities and eager to learn about the rest of the world. I'm really glad I stayed at the Albergue! Fron our guest...Our services is really complete and include: Kitchen Breakfast Internet Computer Safes deposit box Book exchanges Coffee Te Coupons for movies Welcome and enjoy León............ Less
