“Fantastic food and good music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We arrived here and were enticed inside by the good music, then enchanted by the beautifully painted rooms, stuck to the bar by the rum and great converesatipn with friendly locals who love the place too, and then blown away by our fantastic meal... The tacos and fish fillet were out of this world! All in all, one of the nicest places that we have stayed in Nicaragua.

I touched ground in Ometepe with a friend the 22.12 and stayed there until the 26.12. We had a reservation in the Hospedaje central and everything worked great. The atmosphere, the staff and the music (if your looking for some great french reggae bands, oldies or just classic music, you will be served!) are great. We had 2 beds in a dorm with 14 other poeple. Even with a full dorm you have still some privacy, space and you will sleep well.
You can easily book some tours to the Concepción volcano for exemple (Great experience by the way). A little insider tip: The cook chief can prepare you a lot more then what's on the menu. You should really ask for the Chicken Sandwich, they are more then great :-)
Only little negatif point, the disco in front of the hostel can be a bit too loud.

There are some things that need fixing but if you can overlook those facts it's an amazing experiience to stay at this hostel! The staff is super friendly and the animals in the backyard are a lot of fun to observe! We also enjoyed sleeping in the hammocks which only cost us around 3 bucks!!! They helped us with all our wishes and gave us directions to all the places we wanted to visit.

Room Tip: Take the hammocks :)

I feel like this place is coming apart. I stayed in a dorm. It was okay, but not as nice as other hostels I've been in. Though, it was pretty cheap at $5.50/night. The one shower for the entire dorm-staying people was an open-air outdoor shower.

Staff was nice and friendly. Free wifi is always nice. There's nothing bad to say about this place, but at the same time nothing great to say either.

The rooms and dorms were very cheap, A private room with bathroom was $10 (Dorms were $5.50 (but out in the open)). However, there were cracks in the walls, gaps between those walls and the ceilings and two mating spiders above the bathroom door. The staff were nice and friendly but the padlock that is meant to lock the room up was broken and could just be pulled apart. The music rocked on until 2am with partying locals (not good if you are sleeping in a dorm and only just bearable if you are sleeping in a private room). In summary, if you have a limited budget then stay here but if you can afford a couple of extra dollars then I would go somewhere else.

We slept here in hammocks for $3 which you can't beat. There is a family of deer that live in the hostel and roam freely around it but sometimes it seemed like they would suddenly realize they were living in a hostel and they would flip out and run in circles. It sounded like a stampede.
The common shower was gross so we skipped showering that day.
The staff were friendly enough.

stayed in a private room with bathroom for $15 - it is cheap for a reason. the room didn't appear to have been cleaned before we arrived; there was an empty coke bottle on the floor and garbage left on the desk in the room. one miniature towel was left for us (despite the fact that the room sleeps 4) which smelled rank and was stained and brown (I think it used to be white). the shower curtain looked like it hasn't been changed in years, it was disgusting. there are no screens on the window in the bathroom so mosquitos & critters can easily fly in and out of the room. the cobwebs around the ceiling were a nice touch as well but at least the spiders are doing their job as the cobwebs are caked with captured bugs.
the monkeys chained up out back are another story - whether they're rehabilitating/rescuing them or not, it is a sad environment.
oh and a local guy yelled some profanities into the window of our room around 10pm, that was nice!
overall, super weird atmosphere and we couldn't wait to check out in the morning.
