Reviewed 12 November 2012

We were two friends who shared a three single-bed room, with no additional placement into our room. There was toilet paper as well as a bar of soap, shampoo, bath towels, sheets, and a covered pillow each of us. We were even more happy to see that there were two ceiling fixed fans that worked quite well and a warm enough shower after a day out on the volcanoes! The owner and his family was very nice and friendly. You could use the kitchen for whatever needs you had, but just buy your own food to bring in. There wasn't a cafeteria inside the hostel but a cafeteria is about two blocks up the road that locals also frequented as well as many other restaurants close by. Great location as it is connected to Vapues Tours in Leon so our tour guides had to use it as their base!

Ok rooms. A bit worn rooms with a certain smell like old shoes. Rooms are very hot (all though that isn't uncommon in Leon). We had a fan, but it was

They have a clean kitchen that guests are welcome to use, but it has very few cooking pans - and when the family living there cooks they leave their food in the pans...
Also, the lack of wifi is puzzeling.

The good thing is that it's extremely cheap. 10 dollars for two people in a room with private bathroom.

We both this hotel last year and we chanced a lot. And we cleaned all the rooms, because it was necessary.
Now we are fresh and clean. This is also our words: quiet and clean.

And with the chains of quality, we chained also the price. But you get a lot value for the spend money!!!

Thanks for staying with us and hope see you again.

Small and dark rooms but acceptably clean. The owners are very nice and made me feel very comfortable.
Just a couple of blocks from the main square and 100 meters from the restaurants.

I stayed at the Casa Ivana for two nights after abandoning the awful Hostal La Clinica for being too noisy. Casa Ivana is the cheapest place I've ever stayed at in my life at a price of $7 (140 Cordoba) per night for a single room. For my $7 I got a decent sized room with two single beds, both with mosquito netting (which I didn't find neccesarry), A powerful ceiling fan, a table and chair, and a good sized bathroom with shower sink and toilet. I even got soap and shampoo! It was boiling hot in Leon in May, but if I slept directly under the fan, I was comfortably cool. The place was quiet, yet only a couple blocks from the Parque Central. The family that owns it spoke about zero English, but they smiled a lot and made me feel at home. The place is not the Hilton by any means, but for seven bucks, it's a heck of a find. I'd stay here again.
