Great place with a nice open-air courtyard and bar for meeting other travellers. Friendly staff who will help with booking a variety of tours and trips. Spacious dorms with security lockers. Perfect location, just behind the main square.

I stayed here only for one night on my trip from San Juan del Sur to Leon. As it was too late to hit Leon the same day. The room and bed were clean and organized. The enviroment is so quiet so It is a good place to have a proper rest.

After a long day of exploring this Hostal was very relaxing. The staff was very helpful with recommendations even when leaving they gave very good suggestions for next Hostal. Pretty good food as well if your winding down.

The hostel is pretty centrally located, and the staff are nice and helpful. They give you a map of the main attractions around granada. The dorm is large, but there is no AC. However, there are plenty of fans that keep the temperature bearable. A slight pet peeve for me is that the bottom bunks are basically a double bed,...

Thank you for your detailed review, the staff will be informed and it is something they pride themselves on, that and keeping everywhere clean, we are also currently doing alot of painting and upgrading over the next few months.

We stayed 2 nights in this nice hostel. It is no party hostel and the people you meet up there are more settled backpackers. The hostel is really centrally located and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The hostel area is ideal for hanging out and the rooms are very clean. Everything we need to feel well.

This hostel was nice. The room was good quality although (room 3) it is actually in the kitchen and consequently extremely warm all of the time. If you can't handle the heat, I'd suggest you go for a room not in the kitchen ;) The guest kitchen was small but useable and there were 2 good bathrooms. The staff here...

Cool hostel in a great location. The staff were excellent, friendly, checked us in early and organised us an evening tour the day we arrived. It's a bit old but has a cool set. Patio type area with hammocks etc with a relaxed atmosphere. They provided us a map and some good advice on the town.

Nice and clean hostel, slept in a big dorm but beds were comfortable and everything is pretty clean. Staff is very helpful and can arrange tours for you. Not a party hostel but nice for meeting a few people.

We stayed there 3 nights in the dormitory. 8$/bed/night. The staff is very helpful, super nice and speaks English. They offer tours : we did the one to the Masaya volcano during the late afternoon for 23$. It was stunning! A car drives you there and you can see inside the crater and see the lava, what a show !...

The hostel is in a stellar location, just three minutes to the central square. It is also really near Mansion de Chocolate, which has a pool you can use for $5 (win for hot summer days!!) The rooms were clean, but in the dormitory the bunk beds had to share a fan whereas the beds had personal fans in addition...

Thanks for deciding to stay with us and the review. Yes our food prices are a lot lower than most restaurants in town but obviously higher than street food prices and it is also correct we are vey central to everything in town. Good to hear the staff helped you with your sickness and the fever would also be responsible...

“We loved room #4 because of it's view of the bathroom, so you could see whether or not it was being used. It's on the opposite side of the hostel where the smoking common area is located, so you're away from the smoky smell when people are hanging out there.”
