Ambiance was below average, not so close to the airport ($15-20 cab ride) but we got a private room with a shower and it was what we wanted. There is a pool we didn't swim in, but would have if we had more time. There is a breakfast restaurant there (costs extra) but was good (about $4-5 per person). Pretty...

A better than average hostel - they confirmed our reservation (yes, we made one as we were arriving late into the city), and even arranged a shuttle from the airport. $20 for the ride seemed steep but turned out to be not too far off for other taxi fares in the city. The front desk staff were really helpful with...

The hostel was amazing. The area is very safe and clean to live in. There is a shopping mall in walking distance. The hostel is good for anyone, but ladies will be especially excited to get some eye candy in the form of Roberto the night receptionist. The only problem will be fighting off the other ladies to get his...

This backpacker is located in the heart of Managua. Although Managua is city in which a you need a car to move around, the location is good, since you have restaurants arounds, 15 minute walk to the cathedral and it is located in one of the safest neighborhoods in Managua. The place is really nice compared to others hostels I...

I did not spend that much time in this place, but it was nice for one night, comfortable bed, nice pool, and friendly people staying there. The price of the room was not bad, I stayed in a dorm, but they only had mineral water to drink, I don't like mineral water. Also, the staff in the morning wasn't so...

The place it's self if quite nice, I shared a private room which was a bit expensive for what it was. My time here was ruined by a group of very noisy people in the pool area. The staff did nothing to quiet them down and they went on to all hours in the morning. This was disappointing considering what...

The location is great, a safe neighborhood a short walk from Metrocenro. The facility is pleasant. But $10.20 is a lot to pay for a dorm bed. I paid in córdobas but the receptionist insisted on giving me my change in dollars. The staff did nothing to control rowdy drunken behavior--in fact, they sell beer at reception. I paid in...

This is a nice place to stay, especially for backpackers. Me and my friend had a single room with a bathroom, which was really nice. There is a pool and a few tanning beds as well. Many people from different countries hang out in the bar area at night here and it's a nice place to get to know people...

I have stayed here three different times. Once in a private room and twice in the dorms. Each time the hostel was clean, and nice to stay at. The most recent time I was traveling alone and wanted to meet people. This hostel is great for meeting new people and having a good time in Managua before moving on. If...

Since lots of backpackers stay in this place, it is very convenient if you are traveling alone, so you can meet a lot of new friends, and share experiences in the nice terrace.
