“Ms. Elena is the best hostess!!”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

We have stayed overnight at this budget hostel in Managua several times over the last 2 years and each time we have never been disappointed with the service. The hostel itself is average but clean; however what it lacks in esthetics is more than made up by Elena's beaming smiles (the manager, I think). She gives her guests 110% of herself and that includes providing a bagged breakfast at 4:45 a.m. for our early morning flights back to Canada. Elena knows which cab service to call for those early flights and they are there promptly and at a decent price. We will return to Managua if only to receive Elena's warm smiles!!

Room Tip: The room all by itself on the ground floor is the best; it's bigger and has a better bathroom.

Reviewed 8 June 2010

We booked this place for our last night as it is located ten minutes from the airport. After some trouble finding the place (I gave the cab driver a printout with the address and a map, but it still took a while), we were greeted by the wonderful owner (whose name unfortunately escapes me) and taken to our room. The room itself was pretty run-down, er, "rustic," but it was clean and breezy and had warm water and no bed bugs. After we settled in, we decided to go for a walk and ended up at the mall across the street to stock up on snacks for the flight home. Our flight the next day required us to leave at around 5am, and to our surprise, the owner had not only arranged for a cab to pick us up for a good price, but he also prepared a simple portable breakfast with an icy bottle of water for us to take. I thought it was a very thoughtful gesture.

Oh, and the reminder not to bring prostitutes to your room is just charming.
