Clean, center oriented, nice atmosphere & helpfull staff:-) We stayed there only 1 night after our arrival from Europe, so I can't say more, though it's in very good location-10min.walking from main road towards Masaya and Granada!

Very happy with the pool and hammock area, didnt stay in the dorms but stayed in 2 private rooms, both clean and comfortable. Breakfast isn't included but its a pretty decent value, and tasted good :)

Compared to other places I've stayed in Nicaragua this one was definitely 5 star. The staff was courteous and the rooms/bathrooms were clean.
I stayed in a small room with a friend and slept very well.

The hotel is quite clean, practical and the staff is quite friendly. The room was large, with AC and a fan, and we even had hot water, a treat in Nicaragua! And the airport shuttle is efficient, patient and cheap!

Room Tip: Choose a room with A/C! A happy resite from Manaugua's heat!

Hostel was ok. Nothing too fancy and good if you just need it for a bed. The staff spoke English but weren't overly helpful. There were no maps of Managua or Nicaragua. Very simple. I am sure I could have stayed somewhere better.

Hi JuliaWent, Sorry to hear that the Hostel did not completely meet your expectations. Since you stayed here, we've made sure that local and Nicaragua maps are posted on the wall and that copies are always available to guests when needed. Hopefully we'll see you again in the future.

There was a date mixup for my taxi pickup so it never arrived, but they gave me a refund.

The rooms are clean, but there are a lot of mosquitoes in there and in the bathroom. No mosquito nets.

It's an okay place to stay for a night or two.

Overall, good! One of the better hostels I've stayed at! Me & a friend stayed in the female dorm during low season. It had 6 beds and it's own bathroom which is better than most hostels which have shared baths Make sure you grab all of your belongings! I did leave my glasses there and am hoping the staff will become more willing to me get them shipped. I'm willing to pay and have Fed Ex pick them up - simply need them to box and address them to me. If they don't, I can only really blame myself.
