If you're looking for a hostel to rest and get a good night of sleep, this is NOT the hostel for you. But if you want to party, have fun and meet nice people, go to La Brisa Loca! This place has a great bar on the second floor and an amazing rooftop bar to party at night and chill...

La Brisa Loca is a nice place to be if you are seeking for young People and Party. During the day you can chill in that nice pool with look into the sky from the Basement. The rooftop Bar has also a Little shower and comfy hamocks to rest in that great heat. Stuff is helpful and rooms are clean....

Admittedly, I should have done a little more research on this place before showing up after a long travel day. That said, it would have been nice if the front desk had let me know that there was going to be a bumping rooftop party until 4 am. On a Thursday night no less. The speakers were bigger than my...

We stayed here for one night because Masaya hostel couldnt accommodate us one night sooner than we had planned. Hostel staff were really friendly and helpful - and set up a bar tab with your photo when you arrive, as well as offering you one free beer at the bar. The room was spacious and fine - you are given...

Aircon in the rooms is great but only comes on after 10pm which is far too late. Communal areas are fun but the lack of lots of washing areas is a problem - should be more toilets. Drinks not too expensive either, and nor is the food (though we didn't try any food). Would recommend

We stayed at the hostel for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! Great atmosphere and the staff were incredibly helpful. Drinks and food are relatively cheap, the pools open late, there's a banging roof terrace and loads of tours to pick from. I booked diving through the hostel in Taganga and it was one of the most reasonable deals you...
