Such a nice and quiet place just off the town center and within walking distance to everything. Best beds in Nicaragua and rates are really cheap. Good food and drinks as well. Hostal is always full of great travelers.

Momento is the hostel to stay in Granada! Right on Calle Arsenal near the center of everything. Nicest dorm room I've ever seen; full restaurant and bar and great showers. Staff is extremely hospitable and they are very helpful with tourist attractions.

Thank you Amanda for taking the time to write in Trip Advisor, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay and a lovely comment about the best dorm you ever stayed in. We are actually making the dorm a little more colourful with the lamps which will really make the whole room pop and give it a lovely feel.

We had a private room next to staff kitchens Cost about 20 USD for the room. Value for money was good. Good wifi throughout, struggling signal in far bedroom though. All staff fluent in English and Spanish. All helpful too, they can book tours for you, arrange laundry, buses etc. affordable prices, and it looks as though they don't act...

Hostal El Momento is a really beautiful, clean hostel. We stayed in a private room and huge private bathroom as well. Our room had a great overhead fan to ease the Granada heat. We even had a TV in the room! The hostel also has towels available for use with just a deposit. In addition to the standard desktop computer...

Thank you Meredith for writing a wonderful review and also for being very informative about what is available as sometimes guests write what they think when it may not be the correct information. Yes with some of the extras you mentioned just gives the guest a little bit more for their money and makes their stay more comfortable. The towels,cable...

Thank you Guillaume and it was a pleasure to have you both here as wonderful considerate guests. Thank you for being so informative here about what we offer and explaining that we are not a party hostel, we wanted to offer something different as there are already larger party hostels in town and our hostel offers a place for guests...

Hostal El Momento was a great place to stay. The staff was very helpful in planning excursions and the hostel was clean and quiet. The location is prime and the cooking was quite good. I still think about the Desayuna del Mundo.

I spent more than a week there, a couple of days in the dorm and the rest in different private rooms. Everything is very clean, nicely decorated, friendly and helpful staff. The food is also good - lots of Vegetarian options. It's not a party hostel - it gets very quiet after 11 p.m. - which is what I wanted.

Super clean, fantastic room (private two person room) had our own washroom, tv and fan. Gorgeous little garden in the middle of the hostel, free Internet, cheap meals and drinks and a very friendly staff. It's too bad I only stayed here for one night before continuing on my trip because it was a wonderful place.

We stayed here 2 nights in the room off the kitchen (I can't remember the number). The place was very clean, spacious, quiet and safe. It is gated and people have to be let in by an employee. They provided soap, shampoo and face clothes (A nice touch!). The location is also perfect! You are 2 mins from the main...

Ideally nestled in Granada's center, just two streets from the main square. The street is safe and close to several restaurants. The staff are especially friendly and helpful, so feel free to ask them for help. The room was quite OK, with no noise at all, an efficient fan, and the patio for some fresh air in the evening...
