  • Description

    Description

    Our hostel is located in the outskirts of the city of Matagalpa – in Las Marias district – at the 133 km mark on the road that take you to San Ramon & La Dalia (this road passes by us, taking you to many of the things you’ve come to this area to see!). We’re just 8 minutes from downtown Matagalpa.

    We are a family-owned & run business conceived to have a low impact in the environment using local resources & recycled materials.

    Our Hostel design integrates a former metal warehouse with pine wood walls, which together with the green areas provide a fresh & cozy ambiance to the guests.

    We have 4 Private Rooms with Private Bathrooms & 4 Dorm Rooms with a Shared Bathroom. Our rooms can sleep up to 30 in total.

    We have a Solar Energy System that feeds electricity to our hostel areas.

    We also have a Restaurant with a variety of options on the menu including vegetarian dishes, breakfast, lunch & dinner (you can even have breakfast in the afternoon if it’s your desire!).

    Also we have WiFi internet in the rooms & common spaces, hot water (not suicide showers), private parking, night security, movies, a vegetable garden, table games, shared spaces, & all kind of assistance to help you discover the amazing north of Nicaragua.

    The volunteer work that we offer is to work in the general maintenance of the place, it will depend on the skills you have the activities that you may develop, one of the most important duties to perform is to take care the hostal decorative garden areas and edible garden, that requires skills with gardening and organic or permaculture techniques of food growing. There are other secondary duties like electrical or plumbing works that may be required to develop.

    We love to have art in our walls and garden, if you can help us decorate the place with new ideas and projects feel welcome to share.
