It's convenient, as it's right off the dock and it's fairly inexpensive, but I wouldn't be back. It made a good first impression, appeared clean, secure, etc. but there is a pretty serious bug issue. Don't get me wrong, I am familiar with Nicaragua, it's not unusual for there to be occassuibal bugs, etc. in rooms but this was WAY more than normal. We were planning on a couple night but left after one as both I and my traveling companion woke up covered in bites the next morning. In addition to the bugs it is really, really noisy. Perhaps it's a price to pay being on the main drag but the music playing near by was so loud we thought it was playing inside the hostel. We understood the local disco was closed so not sure what was going on.
There are quite a number spots on the island to stay that are a better value and cleaner. Some nice spots in Santo Domingo or, if staying in Moyogalpa would try Hostel Soma or the Cornerhouse.
