Great experience, good price, friendly staff and a good place to meet fine people. Must be there for a #SundayFunday event, starts at 2PM in the bar by the pool and then you will party until sunset. Loved it.

From the moment we got to PachaMama my brother and I were treated like family by the entire staff. We had so much fun that we ended up staying for ten days when we originally only planned to stay for a few. Sunday Funday was the best experience of the entire trip and the endless activities made every day exciting....

I've stayed at the Annex to Pacha Mama and found it to be clean for hostel right on the beach. I honestly expected a lot more sand on the floors. They do an great job of sweeping up the dirty plastic cups the drinks. Service is fast friendly for the amount of people you have to keep happy. Pacha Mama...

Great hostel- definitely a party hostel so just know that and be prepared for that type of atmosphere when you arrive. I stayed at the big pachamama, there's a smaller hostel building as well; stayed in the upstairs dorm which was quite comfortable with the breeze at night. I stayed for Sunday Funday so it was certainly loud but nothing...

Definitely a party hostel, and the crowd is great. Attracts the friendly party-goers. Part of Sunday Funday, so if you are there on a Sunday be prepared to be up basically all night. Wi-fi only works on the ground floor common area, and is on-and off for the most part. Safe, with gate locked at night and security over-night present....

I´ve been to Nicaragua around 3 times, mostly to San Juan del Sur, and this is my favorite hostel. The environment is cool and fun, it has a bar, it is really easy to make friends. I have stayed in dorms as well as private and the rooms are nice and clean. What I love the most is the cool...

Got there with no reservations which confused the desk guy, at first. Quickly remedied, we got a private room, no problem. Ended up having to leave real early one morning, so they took care of us the night before and got to keep the room until needed. For those that don't understand what a party hostel is, this is a...
