“THE traveller hostel in Leon”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

I arrived after a long travelling day in Leon, tired and just looking forward to a bed. Walked in bigfoot hostel, the atmosphere was incredible! Mood changed immediately, seriously incredible! Nice service (travellers as well, big plus !) Showed us our dormes, we layed down our bags, returned to the bar and had an amazing night with the amazing guys from bigfoot, staff as well as guests! Next day vulcanoboarding, after that relaxing at the beach. A wonderful time of action, relaxing and partying, surrounded by the cool, friendly "bigfoot-staff-family".
Felt like home, thank you guys ! :-)

Room Tip: When its hot try to get a dorm with ac :-)

Hi Johannes
Thank you for taking your time to write this great review. Im very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Bigfoot Hostel. We have a lot of people that get late at night and ready to go to bed but nee they see the party going on they changed their mind immediately just like you and everything is good again. Nothing like a fresh drink after a long trip. Thank you for mentioning our amazing staff and how helpful and friendly they are as they work as hard as they can to provide everyone with the best service.
Thank you once again and have a great trip

Amazing adventure! A must do when in Nicaragua!! Nick was an awesome guide. A great moderately difficult hike but short and sweet up to the top with amazing views and then a ride down of a lifetime. Did not stay at the hostel, just did the boarding tour.

This place was so freakin'sweet. It for sure put the cherry on top of our trip to Nicaragua. The staff was friendly and the mojitos were fantastic! Great location surrounded by restaurants and bars, or just stay at the hostel and party your face off like we did..(beer pong champs!) Special shout out to our guide, Jeremie! What a cool dude. He was such a terrific guide and I definetly request him for your volcano boarding extravaganza when you go...you need to do this! Thanks again Bigfoot!

Stayed at the beach house for the 3 nights and it was so nice and chilled out there. There was lovely pool and a beach. The main hostel had a great party vibe. All the staff are amazing at both places. Took surf lessons with Dave whom was a great teacher. Did the volcano boarding which Nick who was a massive star and was really helpful and such a sweetheart. Definitely will stay again!!

Stayed here primarily because of the VolcanoBoarding and heard nothing but positive feedback about this place. Ended up going with Missy and it was a very enjoyable trip! This seems to be the hub for activity for backpackers in the city. It was very easy to get to the beach, participate in night walks up the Volcano, as well as sign up for Volcano boarding. Very friendly staff and clean rooms. The air conditioned rooms (an additional $2) were definitely worth it!

Jeremie was super great, super fun, organized and funny. The boarding itself was super fun. Hike wasn't too tough - as a less strong girl, I highly recommend paying the $5 to have someone bring up your board for you. Trip was good value.

A nice hostel in the center of León. We were 3 girls who ended up in the "second floor" in a doorm with air con. We slept well, but this is a party hostel so consider this before booking. Clean showers, good food in the café, and the volcanoboarding was awesome!
