There's a great atmosphere at El Albergue. It's close to the center, the staff are really friendly, the rooms are really good value, and the garden's a great place to relax. They also put on a really interesting film night while we were there, with a documentary about the revolution. Definitely recommended!

This hostel is clean, reasonable price and ppl here is really chilling and nice.

They have a campaign for dorms, staying dorms for 2 days and you can get FREE 1 NIGHT on july 2012. I'm sure it's cheapest you can get in this town ($4.7 pe night)

What they have...$7 dorms per night, free wifi and laptop, pancake and coffe breakfast, large kitchen and hammock, cheap shuttle buses to Guatemala and Honduras (around $30) and different activities like volcano tours.
Location is also nice, there are biggest market in Leon in few blocks and bus stop is right there.

big footとか底抜けに明るいサーファーの塊みたいな宿にいると疲れちゃうよーもっとのんびり落ちつきたいわっていう方におすすめです。ボブマーリーみたいな顔の宿のお兄さんは英語喋りますし、中々良いキャラをしたアルパカみたいな人なので、是非会いに行って下さい。

El Albergue is a great, "tranquilo" place to be while staying in Leon. It is cheap, with basic rooms, internet, a good location and friendly staff. I recommend it for those of you who want to relax meet a few good people rather than party. The hammock is a nice place to swing, chat and read.

I really can suggest the hostel for a few nights. The Stuff is really friendly and the owner Fran too. They know a lot about the wunderful city of León. They offer Dorms and private rooms for fair prices. U get a cleany, friendly hostal. With a lot of amazing Friends. U can buy food cheap at the market, it is just about two blocks. In the kitchen u can cook with other guest. Enjoy this hostel for a cheap basis too explore the Beaches and volcanos arround León.
