As we are older people and were doing voluntary service in Granada in February (the warm season) we needed a comfortable base. This hotel was warmly recommended to us, and since it is run by a Dutch Charity, to help young people in Nicaragua to be trained for the hospitality industry,we thought we would be supporting day and night! Unlike many of the reviews mentioned here, we did not find the rooms comfortable at all! Indeed we found them quite spartan! There was no hot running water in the morning (only in the middle of the night!), our toilet was blocked (and had to be unblocked), it was so hot during the night (my husband had to get up and get fresh air at the communal balcony). Sorry I have a health problem with air conditioning! Also we found the breakfast monotous and insufficient..sorry we don't eat pure yoghurt daily either, it was a question of big negotiation to ask for an extra roll instead. If we wanted to eat dinner at the hotel, we had to inform by 4 pm on the day! Although the idea of 'giving back' and training the young people is excellent... we found the hotel uncomfortable and inflexible! Instead of staying 4 weeks as planned, we moved out after 10 days! The young staff were quite upset when we left early...sorry we were uncomfortable One positive thing..we found many of the other guests (mostly from Canada) very charming!
