The rooms were super clean and the common area is a super cool area to lounge in with lots of hammocks. The staff was friendly but weren't always available and helpful. Both days I stayed there, there were people smoking marijuana and the staff didn't care or do anything about it so if that bothers you than you might want... More

The hostel is centrally located, very close to La Calzada (the main street in Granada). Overall the hostel in nice, the common parts are very well done and bathrooms are clean. What we really didn't like was our room that was very hot, pratically inside the kitchen and very basic (without any hangers or chairs). The best thing of this... More

Hostal El Momento is nice place to stay with very friendly staff and a nice chill-out place. Although the upper room, where we stayed, was very hot, it is a quiet place to sleep well. The staff helps you with everything, even if you're not staying in the hostal anymore

The hotel was very nice and clean. Loved the small patio foe relaxation. The dorms were also well equipped and clean. Only thing is that kitchen could have more equipment it only has the basic so we had to do workarounds for our meals. Other than that everything was great. Quite and a good service.

Myself and 2 others stayed at Hostal El Momento at the end of June for 2 nights. Our flight into Managua arrived in the evening so we had arranged the hostel to pick us up at the airport. Upon arriving at the airport, there was someone waiting for us with our name on the sign. Was very nice to not... More

Quiet Hostel with great, hard working staff. Zack greeted us when we first arrived (originally only booking 2 nights) and showed us our dorm, little kitchenette, fridge for the dorm residence and 2 relatively clean bathrooms. Chris, the owner from Liverpool, introduced himself as well. Everyone was so nice and helpful, their breakfast was delicious and they offered to fill... More

After spending my first night in Granada in a party hostel where the mattress was basically non-existant and I could literally feel every slat on the bed I was SO glad to find El Momento. I stayed here for 2 weeks at the beginning and end of December. The beds in the dorm are huge and oh so comfy (if... More

This hostal in beautiful Granada is so friendly, clean and well situated… I could not believe the perfect room (very airy, big and so cheap!), beautiful bathroom and lovely common areas to sit and meet people from all around the world. This is a lovely place to stay in Granada. It is a 3 minute walk from the central park... More
