If wana just have a place of sleep and almost whole day you r exploring island, then this hostel is for you. Calm and clean stay. Next door there is an office with trip 360 tour around island, and it also worth to experience. it is close to the port, so dont forget to observe sunset.

Im just writting about the tour which i have booked in the tour agency Leon dormido in San Cristóbal and not about the hostal. The tour is really nice but its because of what you see but not more. Bryan our guide was great. And now the bad point i got an old mask from them and my attachment has been demolished just by pulling it a little bit. So it was not at all really my fault. And then they wanted 50 Dollars from me when i brought them back. I just paid 40 Dollars but that was way to much for me and in my opinion i should have paid anything. So i would definitely recommend to book the tour somewhere else. Sven

The location of the hostel is situated strategically in front of the pier. The owners are friendly and helpful as when we arrived the agency who made the booking for us screwed up our booking and we were told we did not have any reservation and the price the agency told us was not the actual price. Luckily, there is still rooms available and the owners gave us the price we were promised for the room. Since it was still early, the rooms at the main hostel were still occupied and we were given a room at the secondary hostel two blocks away. The room comes with a balcony and the bathroom is clean with toiletries and towels but there is no hot shower. There is also no wifi in the secondary hostel, so it is a little inconvenient for us to contact the agency to resolve the issue. But we can use the Wi-Fi at the main hostel. Kitchen is small and kind of messy and a little dirty. Other than no hot shower and wifi, the rest are okay.

Hostal Leon Dormido is well located near the waterfront and close to all shops and restaurants. Rooms are basic (no window) but quiet nice with enough space, but the place is noisy (water pump shaking at all times and bad noise isolation at the point to be able to hear conversation from next room). I found the owner to be a bit square and, honestly, not very friendly. Wifi is very slow, but this is the case everywhere in San Cristobal.

Decent place to stay for few nights. The personal are really nice people and you are close to everything. Not noisy, súper quiet place. We had a lovely night and we had a terrific breakfast in the nearby restaurant. Crepes close also, ice creams, souvenirs. It's a very good choice if you want to be in the center of cristobal. Good gooood.

Just wanted to post a quick review of our experience. First, it should be stated that we merely booked a boat charter with this hostal. The gal was extremely helpful at the desk and should be commended. I would also highly recommend doing a 360 degree Tour of Kicker Rock! The sharks were fabulous and the tour was well organized. The snorkeling stops were well planned and overall it was a fun experience. However, we really have to mention something that occurred on the boat trip. We were supposed to see boobies along the way, but no one mentioned that we would be fishing. We presumed that they fished in order to attract the birds which began to appear in numbers. Well, the birds began diving at the bait and eventually it appeared that we had caught a fish. Sadly, it turned out to be one of the birds!!! They were able to reel it in and got the hook out, but it was quite apparent that the bird was not enjoying any part of the ordeal. It was just sort of shocking to see. Everyone on the boat was really quiet and it made the experience a little depressing. The worst part was once they released the bird - the put the line back in the water to continue fishing! We were just rooting for the birds to not get stuck on the line again, which they didn't fortunately. Anyhow, I just wanted to clarify what happened and that they should discontinue the practice of fishing to attract the birds.

The staff at this hotel were extremely kind and helpful. I have nothing but kind things to say about their treatment. That being said, this was a very basic hotel. My private room was nice, and they provided towels and hand soap. Everything was clean and cared for and I had control over my own air conditioning unit. It was also extremely centrally located which was a huge plus. I walked there from the airport and was never more than 5 minutes from where I wanted to go. Cons- the wifi almost never worked in the lobby and could not be reached from the room. There was no breakfast included. The drinking water provided was for "in hotel" use only and I was fused at for filling up my water bottle. Overall, I got what I wanted from the experience, since the hostel was just a place to sleep for me. If you are looking for budget, this is a good place to be.

The staff were friendly but there was a lack of attention to detail throughout which didn't match the price paid. For example, the wifi didn't work on a couple of occasions, we had to ask to fix the aircon (twice), once they forgot the towels, and the kitchen was very poorly equipped, without even a chopping board. The worst was that the travel agency, which is run by the same company, forgot to send our names to the boat company when we were to leave, so we arrived at the dock to much confusion which was stressful as we had a flight to catch.

A 3 block walk from the main passenger pier to this impeccably clean Hostal. The rooms are of decent size with 2 double beds which were quite comfortable. Air conditioner worked wonderfully. The bathroom is extremely small that you have to almost step into the shower to close the door but the hot water and water pressure will blow you away. We stayed for 3 nights and thoroughly loved it. Water dispenser for purified water found in lobby
