Little Morgan's
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Little Morgan's is one of those places that's incredibly hard to get away from. I had planned to stay for three nights and ended up staying over a week, only leaving because I had a flight to catch. The staff makes you feel welcome and comfortable, serves great food, and the accommodation is awesome. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and at the same time, there's always something going on.
Can't wait to get back.

My favorite accommodations in Nicaragua! The staff are friendly and helpful, and other travellers are easy to meet in the open air bar/restaurant. The treehouse dorms are neat (though a little small), and the private rooms are huge and luxurious with japanese-style outdoor showers. Atmosphere is laid-back. Food is good, and the set dinner menu was delicious while we were there. Watch the sun set beside the volcano from the top of the "treehouse"!

Room Tip: Choose a dorm for the treehouse atmosphere - or get some friends and share a private for the luxury...

The Hostel is very nice, you can sleep in a private Cabin or the dorm bed are in a tree House, which is very nice.
It is a great place to relax, they have lots of Hammocks...with view of the lake and the vulcanos.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. They organise tours, daytrips.
The Restaurant, Bar is nice, the food is good, a great chance from the local food, but the portions could e a little bit bigger... The bar gets busy at the weekend!!
We had a great time!!! Thank you

Great place to stay if you want to meet other backpackers. I had a great time at Little Morgans, and I'll never forget it. I was there for three nights, and I met people from all over the world in those three days. While I was staying there, three girls arrived wanting a place to stay, but Morgan's was full. The owner drove them to several other resorts trying to help them find a place to saty. I thought that was really cool of him. The staff were incredible. They were all super friendly and made amazing food.

Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Good, affordable food; cheap, delicious drinks. They are very upfront about being an open, airy place, and bugs are part of that. They provide mosquito nets on the beds, but be aware, there are lots of bugs. This is a great place for laid-back travelers/backpackers who don't mind bathrooms and showers outside (private with bamboo walls) and having bugs/geckos in the rooms. Again, they are very upfront about the open air quality of their place and their attempts to minimize impact on the environment (such as unnecessarily changing sheets/towels, but all you have to do is ask). A fun, nice place to stay if none of these things bother you. My only suggestion would be more hammocks and places to lounge, read and relax in the sun.

Room Tip: Dorm rooms are like cool tree forts and private rooms have outdoor showers and bathrooms next to the...

Wow. just wow. I can't say enough great things about this place. My friends and I stayed in one of the private rooms for 3 nights and had a great time. They arranged a hike up Ometepe with a local guide (who they let keep all the profit)...they serve up amazing and hearty meals...perfect after a day of moving around exploring, and best of all, they have a friendly and HELPFUL staff that's fun to hang out with.

Little Morgans, I'll be back for sure!

Much Love,

Anna Currin

Room Tip: i hear both the dorms and the private rooms are great

When we were 25 we would've thought this was the greatest place ever. As parents of 11 and 14 year olds, it just doesn't fit. Morgan and Richard were very nice, but it is what it is - a place for 20-somethings on an adventure.

The fishing trip was pretty cool. When we got back at sunset, the crew of two built a fire, cleaned the fish, prepared them with plenty of garlic, grilled and served them up for dinner.
