3 Brothers
Reviewed 8 October 2012

This is a family-run hostel with clean rooms and a very helpful couple that do everything they can to make you feel at home. They have rooms with our without private bath, we paid 15 dollars for a room with two beds, a small porch and private bath. It was clean and well equipped but with no air coming through so it was a bit dark and hot. There is a shared kitchen, a big dining hall and hammocks. Two minutes from the beach.
The hotel is in the village which is god, that means you don't have to hike through pitch-black jungle in the evening after dinner. Also you meet nice people because all the backpackers stay here.

Room Tip: They have lots of rooms, ask to see a couple before you decide. One even has private kitchen.

Best budget spot on the island! Incredibly friendly and helpful owners, Randy and Lucilla, who made me feel at home immediately. Very safe spot with a kitchen(difficult to find on the island) and clean rooms with fans. Loved my stay here, highly recommended!

I stayed at Randy and Lucille's place for three weeks in March 2012.

At no point did I feel nervous to be a lone traveller, and their place is so protected (in the sense that someone is always around), that I never felt nervous.

At their place, you can relax, stay in your room, or socialise with other people who are staying there...you choice. You can have your laundry done, too, if you want. It's just $4. You hang your clothes to dry afterwards, which is what I, personally, prefer--there's nothing like air-dried (tropical breeze-dried) clothes.

I really can't say enough about 3 Brothers. Randy and Lucille made me feel like I was at home, though my "official" home is in Canada. I think that this is rare for travellers to feel, right?!

I have friends, whom I met at 3 Brothers, who ended up staying for over a month because they felt at home here. I really can't give any other recommendation beyond that.

The rooms are basic and clean. You'll be out for most of the day anyway (hopefully!), so you really can't ask for more. For money value, you can't do better than making 3 Brothers your "headquarters" while you're on LCI. Seriously. :)

The hostel is clean, very good value and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The showers are really powerful which is an unusual find in Central America! Would definitely recommend staying here

The 3 Brothers Hotel/hostel is on Little Corn Island in Nicaragua.
It is a good choice for people who want a cheap place, that is clean, has a basic kitchen, and near the "main" centre.
The rooms aren't huge, but definitely plenty big enough. Both the rooms with and without bathrooms are good value, and if you are staying 3 nites or more, ask for a discount.
Randy and his wife are the owners, and are very freindly and helpfull. Randy can do snorkling or fishing tours in his boat. They also have a general store around the front which is handy for food and drinks.
Our friend accidentally left their wedding ring in the room (due to a cut on the finger) and Randy managed to get it to them via boat and friend to Big Corn Island before our friend had to take the boat back to the mainland......pretty good, honest, helpfull service i'd say!
Other places on the island ie cabins are a long way away and very sandy. This is one of the best budget options on the island, and a short walk to restaurants and drinking spots.
I recommend it for backpackers.
