Guesthouse El Nancite

Reviewed 18 April 2011

If you're looking to party with backpackers - look elsewhere! However if you want a beautiful, clean and quiet hostel run by friendly staff at minimal prices, this place is awesome.
The bilingual owner cooks a top breakfast each morning and it can be eaten in the hostel's tropical courtyard.
The room I had was newly decorated and large with an en suite bathroom, TV and ceiling fan. I didn't see a bug once while staying there which is highly unusual for Nicaragua but very welcome.
The owner was very friendly and helpful finding transport and, at $26 per night, i am really hard pressed to find a criticism. Would highly recommend it to families, quiet transports and hotel-dwellers.

This upstairs room was one of the best rooms we ever had. It was huge with two double beds, couch with two easy chairs and coffee table, dining table with four chairs and a balcony overlooking the gardens. Gardens had tropical landscaping with banana, mango and guava trees. Walk to the cathedral in about ten minutes. All for $45.
Negatives - no air conditioning and hot water was not working that morning.

Reviewed 18 December 2010

we stayed here for the few nights we were in Leon and to be honest our room was one of the rooms upstairs and it was pretty nice. It was bright and airy it had a fan, big bed, tv, chair and really nice shower and bathroom. My only statement which could be down to bad luck was the bed it broke randomly and fairly badly which is terrible to have to go and say we broke the bed so we ended up on the floor on a mattress for the first night and then the second night the same thing happened. When we asked for a discount the man there basically didnt want to give us one which I felt was a little rude considering the issues we had and how we had dealt with them.

But dispite this this place had the best mattress on a bed or floor that I have had in ages they were brand new and really comfortable.
