This hostel was above average. It was located about 10 minutes walk out of Moyogalpa along the road towards Concepcion. I stayed in the dorm for three nights. The beds were comfortable (not bunks). They had large lockers and individual reading lights. My first bed broke but I was able to move into another one. There were no curtains or blinds in the dorm making it hard to lie in. Also there was noise from building works in the mornings.
If you stayed in the dorm you had to pay extra for breakfast and it wasn't worth it, There were better value places to eat in town.
The hostel was quiet but sociable, and the owner was friendly. The dog however seemed rather aggressive, and once ran towards me barking when it was off the leash. It didn't actually bite me though.
There were some nice hammocks down the bottom of the garden. After ascending Concepcion I spent a whole day chilling out and reading, which was nice.
Overall, solidly above average for a backpacker place.
