Located in Moyogalpa just up and one street to the left from the ferry port (San Jorge), hospedaje central was a very inviting welcome into this "city" in Isla De Ometepe. Like the website states, this hostel has the design that most backpackers are familiar with which made the place funky and inviting. A family owns the hostel but its run by volunteers. Very helpful and had a lot of fun. Because the staff were friendly and open, all of the fellow guests were just as community oriented. With a full bar restaurant up front called Indo Viejo, don't be weary of the noise. Everything shuts pretty early and from our room (on the second level) we could not hear too much. Rooms are clean and have a fan which helps tremendously! Usaki can also help you out with great guides tours to the volcano. If you have large groups the price will be $15 each. Smaller for up to $25. Beds range from $2.50 hammock to $15 private with amenities. Would highly recommend if you want a central location, great food, good vibe and feel like part of the stay.

- We are a Backpacker-friendly hostel with Bar and Restaurant. Our goal is to provide a great service and friendly environment to everyone who enters Hospedaje Central.

(People love our Batidos[smoothies] too):: Our Bar is stocked with the best local liquors and a variety of world favorites as well. If you're not feeling the high-end alcohol, we also have a nice selection of "Cheap and Dirty" brews that won't be too heavy on your wallet. There are also delicious mixed drinks available for those who want to try out the local fruit concoctions. And of course, great music. Whichever type of fun you want, we can help you get there.:: If you aren't into eating, or drinking, we enjoy helping our guests plan their adventures. We have great contacts around the island to help you get what you want. Whether its traveling and making new reservations on Maderas, organizing transport, renting motorcycles or horses, simply giving directions to great beach locations or helping you Trek-Up-The-Ultimate-Volcano: Conception - We can take care of it for you.:: And most of all, if you're just into relaxing, we built an entire hostel around that concept. We have great sitting areas throughout the area, a nice garden under the sun, a reading friendly courtyard, lots of hammocks to swing in, private rooms for secluded time, and dorm rooms for the fun and friendly types. We filled the walls with paintings and culture for you to look at when you don't have a good book, and we're building a small library for you to find that good book afterwards. Overall, its a great place to hang out, people tell us all the time, and we're happy to provide this atmosphere for those who seek it.:: And for those who live on the cloud, we also have THE INTERNET. (free wifi included) We hope this helps you. Enjoy Nicaragua!-Team Hospedaje Central(El Indio Viejo) P.S.
