El Pital is just wonderful. The staff and volunteers are so friendly and they helped me out with booking volcano tours and scooters! They have a bar and I really liked their chocolate super power smoothie! I learned a lot about cacao and I loved the fact that I could just jump in the lake! A heaven for vegans! 100% recommended!

Hands down the best hostel on the island. It has a private beach access with an amazing view of the volcano (my previous one was 15 minutes walk to the beach), great restaurant with tons of Vegan options (the Magic Bowl is unbelievable) and a super friendly staff (hi Sher, miss you already). Highly recommended for anyone who's considering coming to Isla de Ometepe!
