“Nice and quite place - very good value”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

This family-run hostel is really a good deal for León. We had a double room with private bath for 18 USD - very clean, very nice room with a fan (the room get's hot during the day anyway). There is a small garden, a clean kitchen to use, with free coffee and free Wi-fi.

The people running the place are very friendly. It is a quite place, away from the typical backpacker scene. The location is great, with the VIaVia nearby for great and not so expensive food and drinks.

The hostel i really can recommend to other people looking for a quite and nice place to stay - the price is an excellent deal compared to other more famous hostels, although León in general is quite expensive.

Stayed in a private room with bathroom. Prices are comparable with some other hostels but this one had much larger rooms, very comfortable bed and kitchen. Very clean and quiet - the party action takes place elsewhere so you can sleep in peace away from the crowds and the regular backpacker scene. Great location. Very nice family owned hostel - highly recommend it.

We spent about four nights at this nice and good-value place. Rooms with private bath are very affordable, the kitchen is well equipped and you can sit in a patio with a lot of green. You can also swing in a hammock underneath the water tower. Definitely recommended! Other hostels in town were either fully booked or too noisy and none of them was cheaper.

If you want to escape the hustle, bustle & noise that most hostels in Leon have raging around you then this is a good place for you.

Run by a very friendly family, this hostel is very central but a very quiet feel & not the noisy vibe like the surrounding hostel. A kitchen for you is a bonus as well & is very close to the supermarket.

Stayed here for about one week in early March this year. Got a big, clean, private room for a very reasonable price. Towels and soap are supplied. No English spoken here but the staff are very friendly and helpful. Great location, two more large hostels on the same street if you feel like mingling with other travelers.

Nice little hostal with a great location and nice rooms. The kitchen could use a clean up as well as everything in it. The chill out area is rather small but ok.
We stayed 3 nights and during this time, the room was never cleaned, the trash can never emptied nor new toilet paper added.

We to led up at night from El Salvador, walked in and got a great room at a great price. We are a young married couple and after staying in dorms we decided to get some space of our own and got a large private room with private bathroom for only $20/night. It is very clean, very quiet, safe and close to everything you need- bars, clubs, restaurants, shops, banks etc. the only draw back is the kitchen is not very well stocked with bowls or cutlery.
