Me and two other friends stayed here in May. They gave us a 4-single bed dorm with a balcony. Price was great for peak season (USD 15). Breakfast was included and they let you choose among 3 different dishes (all of them really good). On the down side, bathrooms are on the 1st floor and all the rooms are on... More

We stayed here for 10 days then returned and stayed another 2 weeks, needless to say we really liked it. Discounted rates are offered when you stay for longer periods of time, so we got a double room with balcony and ocean view for $20/night total, including a free breakfast (from a choice of 3). The best part about this... More

Most of the rooms here have amazing balconies looking out over the ocean. Its also well priced with including breakfast. When we arrived we didnt know how long we were staying. So when we said we werent staying 2 nights (before we had checked in or booked etc) and just 1 night the really rude hostess downgraded us to a... More

Stayed three nights here, because Casa Oro was full. Plusses: decent sized rooms, most beds comfortable (check!), right on the beach, a place with a history, pretty good breakfast included. Minuses: constant smell of woodsmoke from wood-fired oven, showing it's age, sometimes cranky owner, very noisy industrial-type fans, bathrooms not on same floor as rooms. We couldn't help liking this... More

This place is littered with bed bugs. Do not stay here unless you want to stay up all night scratching and have to deal with fumigating your stuff. Staff was very rude and very reluctant to fumigate our bags. After finding several bugs in several mattresses they still insisted that we brought them to the hotel.

We stayed here two nights and found it okay. We stayed in a room with a balcony with an ocean view. That was really nice! The breakfast was great, you get to choose from the menu between 3 dishes. The pancakes were the best. That said the bathrooms were on the first floor and the rooms on the second, so... More

Great location. Horrible customer service & beds. DON'T BOTHER. My boyfriend and I went to inquire about a room for 1-3 nights. We were greeted by the son who spoke English very well. He offered for us to look at a room with balcony (room 6 w/ 2 single beds & balcony). It was okay but we saw inside room... More

We came from the north of Nicaragua, were we traveled for 2,5 weeks, were everything is much cheaper then in the south. But Hotel Estrella gave us a good deal, a double room including breakfast (three different ones) for 20 dollars. Our room was spacious, the beds were okay and unfortunately the fan didn't really worked well. We stayed there... More

At the beginning the owner was friendly, but... just for the check-in. After she became really unfriendly, even embittered.. Also the mattress of our room was not comfortable. It's a pity because the location of the hostel is perfect, it's clean, bathrooms are ok and a (good) breakfast is included. We stayed just 1 night but changed asap for an... More

First off, you can't get a better location, right across the street from the beach and views from the balcony (with electrical wires in some rooms though). The staff was super friendly at check-in, then it stopped... They are just "meh". The place is really clean though, the shared bathrooms are continually cleaned with buckets and buckets of soapy water.... More
