    Description

    Hello and welcome to Leon, Nicaragua. Our hostel was established in June 2019 and THANKFULLY, we are still standing. Our vision was to create a mix between a social/party hostel with an onsite "hole in the wall" style restaurant.

    Some of our hostel amenities include; a garden, hammocks, pool/beer pong tables, adult size Jenga, on-site bar and American style eatery. Reservations available for both private rooms and/or dormitories which all include free breakfast.

    We offer a laidback atmosphere with an artsy interior. And, we LOVE music! So we do play background music all day for more of a chill vibe. In addition, we do occasionally dabble in some FUN and host events such as; game night tournaments for prizes, bar crawls, and parties with live guest DJs. Our staff is bilingual in English/Spanish, super friendly according to our reviews and always eager to work with our volunteers!

    So, what are you waiting for? Take a chance and experiment with us. Welcome to your home away from home!
