This is the mother of party hostels in Leon. I didn't really enjoy it - but 18-23yr old me would have. An employee of the hostel organized beer pong and other drinking games right outside my room - it was basically a frat party. I was woken up at 2am to what I thought was an earthquake - my bunk was the only one shaking though. After a bra fell on my head, I asked the jackrabbits to kindly find another venue. I shared that story with a couple nice Swedish girls who happened to be both on my bus to Honduras and also stayed at Bigfoot last night. After hearing the story, they reported that the same thing happened in their dorm.
If you want a super fratty atmosphere and don't mind sweltering dorms and gross facilities, this place is for you. They DO foster a fun community and bring strangers together. The drinks are cheap and the food is good. There's a pool table and hammocks and weak wifi. 21yr old me would've loved this place.
