Hi there! We are a new hostel in the historic city center of León. Both owners (Wouter & Sophie) have travelled a lot and are now fulfilling their dream, to start their own hostel. And this is it! We have tried to make this a very good hostel and so far we are really happy with the result. A big and spacious property which offers you a lot of open areas where you just chill out. Want to meet new people? Sure that's also possible. We have build a rooftop terrace (unique in León) where you can enjoy a sunset or gaze at the stars. We believe that cooking and eating are very important social moments, so we have build a very big and fully equiped open kitchen for everyone to use. León gets very hot, thats why we installed outdoor showers and specially designed 'mist-showers'. Come to Poco a Poco Hostel and beat the heat! Our property is at least 150 years old (nobody knows for sure) and you can tell. Nice classical wooden doors, very big patio and green garden garden and other classical details. We are not a party hostel. But we are a hostel where can have a very good time. We do everything to create that chill/travelling vibe in the hostel. After all this socializing you want to sleep. We got you great beds with very comfortable matrasses, all bedlinnen is included. Off course we have WiFi everywhere and can arrange any trip you want to do. We hope that you, after reading this and seeing the foto's, want to come over and visit us. We'll make sure you will have a great time here in León! Any questions? Feel free to ask, we will answer as fast as we can. See you soon at Poco a Poco Hostel! Wouter and Sophie

We had a lot of fun staying here! The staff is very nice, helping and fun, they speak English muy bien, it's clean, the food is cheap and good (breakfast, taco night) and the vibe is very relaxed. Also, the owner has the cutest dog, which on its own is reason enough to book

Couldn’t have asked for a better hostel with better staff! Eric, Henry, Kara as well as many others were beyond helpful and lots of fun! Perfect mix of social opportunities - with quiet time at 11 so I could actually sleep 🙂 would go back forsure!

Very nice hostel, rooms and facilities are clean. Common area is a beautiful, gardened courtyard. Owners are friendly and quick to respond to any inquiries. I felt safe and the cheap breakfast doesn't hurt either! Would definitely stay again.

I think checkout is at 11, I dont remember the exact checkin time. But I know that the staff is chilled and wont you throw you out of the room at 11:01 or anything like this. Greetings Tim
