Restaurant not able to do more then burgers that sit to long in the hot box ( warm hold thing). Shuttle to la ceiba honduras was very good hostel to ferry or hotel service. That is...

I ended up getting at this hostel very late at night, but felt very safe once I arrived. I ended up booking a private room and it was really nice. I was happy to have my own shower and there wasn't any hot water, but that's pretty normal for Central America. The next day, I got delicious breakfast cooked from...

Actually the best hostel I have been in Central America. Honest price, clean, nice kitchen, awesome restaurant and crazy partys. The perfect place for who is traveling and want meeting people from different countrys and join it. Here you can also do the Volcano Boarding on the fastest board in Leon.

The place itself was ok. Clean rooms, young atmosphere and good restaurant. BUT, and this is a big but, the staff were just not kind and not helpful. They tried to make us pay extra for things that u would imagine should be free after you stayed there for almost week. Even after a talk with the manager, no real...

Awesome hostal. Had a blast volcano boarding. It was worth the $35. Only thing that sucks about the hostal is that the rooms arent well ventilated and smell pretty bad but at least they look. clean. I will definitely be going back the next time I'm in Leon.

This place is simply a big cluster of idiot drunk people partying their face off. I stayed here twice on separate occasions for less than 24 hours. There are ALWAYS "that guy" staying here so be prepared and don't expect anything more than what it is.

Loud and obnoxious patrons, sexist decor all about and ambivalent staff. I guess its just not my cup of tea. But I will list the pros/cons: Pros: cheap bed, central location, cheap beers, western food, transport to beach (triple check the fees with staff-they have a tendency to change without warning) Cons: small rooms, not so clean toilets, expensive food....

I have not stayed at this hostel, but I did the volcano boarding tour and it was awesome! We did not have a reservation and the team has been very flexible. Moreover, the guide was very dynamic and fun. Finally, 30$ for the tour + 5$ for the national parc entry + 5$ for someone who brings your board to...

Volcano boarding is definitely a thrilling and original activity that is worth trying. My only advice is not to try beating the speed records as we saw many people tumble down while tying to go fast, mostly when they arrived at the bottom of the slope. On our tour some people reached over 40-45 mph (70+ km/h) (measured with laser)...
