This was our favorite hotel in all of Nicaragua... When we arrived there was still a room left (private with shared batheoom). The room is very spacious and clean. The bathroom is also very clean and spacious. You have to share it with one other room wich is fine. The staff is super friendly and helpfull. When it appeared that... More

Myself and one other backpacker stayed here for 3 nights. After getting off the ferry it's only a 5-10 minute walk. Ometepe is a surprisingly large island so this location is a real bonus. The staff here are superb, probably the friendliest and most informative I've encountered in Nicaragua. It's also a great base for tours and to rent scooters,... More

This place is more like a hostel than a hotel. However, aside from shared dorm rooms, they do have several individual rooms, which can accommodate at least two people each. The room is basic but spacious and clean. The shower/toilet are shared. There are also "bungalows" for which I think do have private bathroom. The reception/dining area is in the... More

We stayed here for one night in Ometepe and we wished we'd had time to stay longer. The hostel is run by a really friendly, laid back and helpful family. They were welcoming and trusting, even offering an honesty system for buying drinks. The hostel is situated about a ten minute walk form the main town which means that you... More

We stayed four nights in a cabin at Soma. The room was spacious, very clean and we had a nice patio (with a hammock). Breakfast was very good and there was a lot of variety. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They offer tours and they work together with very professional people. It was a fantastic stay with a... More

I traveled here with my friend who stayed here two years ago. We can't wait to go back again soon! The rooms are all spacious, clean and comfortable with fans and windows to keep cool on the warmer days. The common area is welcoming and has different games and books. All guests have access to the fridge with soda, water... More

I didn't know where to stay on Ometepe but during my search I came across Soma's web site and somehow felt the urge stay here. The room was clean, the staff friendly and so helpful. A family atmosphere. They arranged trips and transportation and were really mellow. They made my stay on Ometepe exactly what I wanted. Oh and don't... More

Pretty quiet and clean hostel. For 10 dollars you have a bed, shower, towel and simple breakfast. It's a 10 minute walk from the centre, I guess, so that's fine. Dorm is next to the common space, but that okay. The only thing is, that the door make a lót of noise, hard to sleep through that. Furthermore: good deal!

We arrived at Hospidaje Soma two days ago and were met by friendly staff who were very accommodating with our requests. My cousins and I stayed in the dorm room and our parents stayed in the cabins. The rooms were spacious and had fans, but it was still very hot. However apparently we had hotter weather than normal (39-45 degrees... More

This place was great but I had a few cons so I'm just going to list it out. PROS: -Staff staff staff. Enough can't be said on how the staff was so amazingly helpful in organizing our tour and giving us the layout of the city. They even let us come back a few hours after we checked out to... More
