I stayed here for 3 nights over the holidays and it was a great choice for us. The location was great, a short walk to the city center (1 minute) and easy walk to restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. The staff was very helpful and friendly and helped make our stay comfortable. We stayed in a private room which had a... More

We chose this hostal for the nice little garden and the included breakfast. The location is also very convenient. But the bathroom hasn't been cleaned for ages and has no proper windows (they are all the way up near the ceiling) so it's dark and lack fresh air. Without mosquito nets, you can't really refresh the room at night. After... More

Plenty of locker space, large free breakfast, comfy beds, nice and helpful staff, basically a great hostel. The location is also great because it is literally a block away from the center of town. Stay here and you won't be sorry!

Pros: Can't beat the location. Staff helpful and accommodating. Great breakfast. Clean. Quiet. Cons: No airflow in the rooms - very hot but the portable fan they provided helped. Did not prevent me from sleeping. Cold showers. Wifi did not work in room.

This hostel was ideal for my visit to Leon. It's just a couple blocks from the main plaza, the rooms are very comfortable and clean (especially the privates!), and it has a much more relaxed atmosphere than the Leon party hostels. This was especially welcome for my girlfriend and I, who are a little older than the prototypical hostel-goer. The... More

Colibri Hostal is very good located! You are close to the supermarket and the main square! I have mixed feelings for Colibri! On the one hand I liked the garden area very much! Clean, spacy enough, hammocks...and quiet! The guests were mostly kids, but seniors, too! So a big range of differents folks! The room was ok. On the other... More

Positives - the staff were helpful and friendly, especially the guy who worked nights on the reception. He was excellent and sorted transport out for us when our taxi didn't show up. The price - it's reasonable. Negatives - the rooms aren't particularly nice but they do the job. The whole hostel feels a bit grubby and could do with... More

I really liked the hostal, nice staff, good and clean rooms (I slept very well), a great breakfast (pancakes/fruits or traditional nica and free coffee the whole day). The rooms were sometimes quite hot but that would be the same in other places...cause it was just incredibly hot outside. Beautiful chillout area outside with hammocks. The location is very central,... More

The only issue I had with this place was the fact that there was no air circulation in the rooms even with 4 fans going. I didn't get any sleep and moved hostels the next night.The dorms did have adequate lockers and plenty of space but there was just no windows and the vent above the door was not enough... More
